What to do after hiring an interior painter?

I live in a 1 bedroom apartment and want to get my bedroom and living room painted. I’ve never experienced what you do once the painter starts working. Meaning, do you stay in the apartment while he/she works (in order to “guard” your stuff)? Should you not be there? Will I need to find another place to stay overnight? I live on the second floor which makes me a little uncomfortable to leave the apartment alone overnight with the windows open. Thanks for your input!
