I have been working at Queensboro Shirt Company full-time (More than a year)
The first time I walked in to the building, I knew I wanted to be here. I prepared for the interview more than I ever had before and I really have not stopped preparing in the two years since. The work challenges you to be better and the rewards reach beyond the office walls. Hard work is rewarded hard. Open door policy with management is not just talk. Camaraderie between all departments is a priority!
It is a BIG undertaking, but the building could use more love. The snack table is too close to my desk.
Advice to Management
Keep the four Ps (Principled, Positive, Productive, Proactive) and greatness is yours. Figure out the parking situation 'cause you are going to need it.
I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Queensboro Shirt Company (Wilmington, NC) in August 2016.
In order to apply for the position I had to submit a resume and a description of a "humorous work experience", which I actually really enjoyed writing. Once I was selected for an interview I was asked to take a short aptitude test online prior to coming in for an interview. Once I arrived for my in-person interview, I was given a full tour of the various departments and production warehouses. I enjoyed getting to walk around and get a feel for the environment of the workplace. It was also really nice to see A LOT of smiling faces as we walked around which seemed to indicate that people were happy with working there. The manager also knew every single persons name out of the 140+ employees which I thought was very impressive and said a great deal about this individuals leadership style.
The entire process was a single interview one on one with one Manager. The interview felt fairly informal, relaxed, but informative and engaging. At the end of the tour and interview, which lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes, I was asked to take a longer version of the aptitude test I had taken online prior to the interview. This part was a little intimidating; however, once I got through it and he explained the purpose behind the test I felt much better about it all. There was no second interview and an offer was made at the end of this interview process.
I was able to negotiate. They are fairly flexible on pre-existing circumstances like working around planned time off and start date availability. They made it clear if you were a good fit they were willing to work with you to make it a situation that works for both parties. The high quality and level of treatment from the beginning let me know that this would be a great place to work and that you would be treated with respect and dignity.
