I have been working at Queensboro Shirt Company full-time (More than a year)
Pays good, good co-workers, relaxed environment, open lines of communication, generous paid time-off/vacation, steady work, moral and tolerant
Equipment a little outdated, a tad cult-like in its atmosphere/loyalty, production areas noisy, slow advancement, particularly difficult customers, no 401k
Advice to Management
Get 401k, some equipment upgrades, quiet areas/times
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Queensboro Shirt Company (Wilmington, NC) in August 2008.
I found the job on Craigslist and contacted the company via email. After expressing my interests and submitting a cover letter and resume, I waited nearly a month before hearing back from them. Once I did, I was called for an interview with the owner and two of other managers. It was a waste of time and really only consisted of listening to the two other managers stroke the owners ego. Other advice to candidates, don't waste your time with this company. If you make it long enough and are fine getting paid below standard wages, eventually someone will be willing to take less and you'll be let go. Spend time finding another place to work.
there was no negotiation
