Career Opportunities

Motor City Paint Company/Shelby Paint & Decorating is Michigan based paint and decorating company with a commitment and passion for paint, blinds, and wallcoverings, and that has been reflected in everything we have done for over 35 years. Our three stores in Southeast Michigan are leaders in their markets and categories, our paint manufacturing company produces the highest quality paints made in Michigan for Michigan, and we integrate the two companies in a very symbiotic way. We love what we do and do what we love; we weave together innovation, growth, enthusiasm, and a lot of fun to create a successful and enjoyable work environment.

We are looking for an honest hardworking person who is looking for an opportunity to be part of a growing company at the ground level. As a small business, we prefer to promote from within; our staff is very important to us, and we believe in rewarding excellence. Each of our stores has a small, close-knit staff where great work and customer service never go without notice. Your position with us will be something like a doctor or a detective. You need to know how to uncover our customer’s wants and needs for products and colors, but also to diagnose any paint problems they may have at home. For the right person, this is a great place to begin your career.
