Cameron Bickford, Sales Associate
Been working for Maine Paint for about 4 months but I have been exposed to the company and paint since I was a kid as my grandfather has worked for the company for 20+ years. I am enjoying working for this store because we’re very positive and always looking for ways to improve the customer and employee experience. Outside of work I enjoy music, mostly rock from the 60’s and 70’s and love to explore and see new things. I’ve been across the country twice on a greyhound and it was the best few days of my life, so I plan to travel a lot someday. Meantime, I’m working for Maine Paint and loving it every day.
