Summer Jobs with UFCP in Alberta!

Since 1982, UFCP has provided valuable summer management experience for students across Alberta.


Students work as managers, painters and marketers to gain meaningful job skills and real-world experience in Calgary, Edmonton and the surrounding regions. Franchises are run by students to allow them to learn the day-to-day responsibilities of being a business owner.


Students working as franchise managers will earn more than they would with an average summer job, as well as learning to apply their particular field of study. They will gain an understanding of all aspects of running a business such as sales and marketing, production management, human resources and accounting.


Our unique Management Development Program helps students transition into their first summer managing a franchises with business seminars and training to fully prepare them. In order to qualify for the Management Development Program, students will be assessed based on academics, work experience, extracurricular activities as well as interpersonal skills.


UFCP also offers the following opportunities to students:


Summer: Positions as painters, foremen and marketers allow students summer job opportunities that give them the potential to work towards becoming managers.


School year: Students can also work part-time or full-time from September-April in on-campus recruiting positions with flexible hours.

    “My experience with UFCP this summer has been a great learning curve. UFCP has taught me how to manage and operate a small successful business. This job teaches you how to manage employees, deal with clients, quote and sign jobs, and learn about all the different paint products. This is a self driven job where no one is gong to tell you what to do everyday, you have to learn and find out what works for you. It has been a great experience and I’m looking forward to next year.”

    UFCP has been a great experience overall. I can’t say enough good things about the staff and support that goes with the brand name, they are all incredible. This is my 4th year managing, and it’s great to look back and see how much I’ve grown and learned from all the experiences I have had. Glad I did not pass in this opportunity.

    UFCP has been an incredible experience and a ton of fun. The entrepreneurial skills acquired through managing a franchise have been valuable to my future business endeavours. UFCP gives a glimpse into real world business and how things works. Being your own boss can’t be beat! The support network has been a huge part of my success and I am very thankful for all the help that has been provided.
