    Pay is great, free parking, location close to everyone in Los Angeles. 40 hours a week for sure.

    Backed up work everyday, washers to small, eye wash not working, managers do not fix problems there.

    Clean up that laundry! Fix schedules and add more evening laundry attendants. Have stain removal chemicals on hand, and safety equipment like the eye wash station working properly.
