    Pros

    The company maintains a family feel despite its growth over time - everyone will know your name. If you work hard and deliver results, the pay is good and there is limitless opportunity to grow within the company, which typically promotes from within. While uniform and linen supply is not a glamorous industry, it is rock solid, as is the company.

    Cons

    Unions often get in the way of success.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to move the business forward into the future.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Mission Linen Supply in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called asking to schedule a phone interview. BAR Question format all the way, and it wasn't terribly hard. It was over an hour talking about the position and asking questions combined. What I did not appreciate was the conduct of the interviewer. I was told to expect an email with instructions/login for a test that needed to be taken before I could be placed in the pool of candidates for a face to face interview. I waited, checked junk, checked other emails, double checked my email was correct on the original application. The next evening I called to let him know I had not gotten the email and I got voice mail. Same the next day and the next. After a week of leaving messages and not getting a return call I blocked my caller ID and called 2 minutes after leaving a message and boom, got a pick up straight away. (Yes, they were screening my call) and he sheepishly tells me that oh, yeah, we found a better candidate. This conduct did not give me a good impression of the business at all.
