"I started working at Nichols in May 2015. With knowledge of working in the residential paint industry, I came to Nichols as an apprentice 1 to learn the marine paint trade. Working at Nichols has been very exciting. It’s been a very growing experience advancing from apprentice 1 to Journeyman. Phil, my supervisor brought me on, and taught me what I need to excel in the department. It amazes me how smart everyone is here it’s; marvel ingenuity."
