I too interview and hire people......cleaness matters.....wash your face and look awake.....brush teeth.....wear clean clothes....not pants dragging the floor and hanging down showing underwear and crack....make sure hair is cut clean and neat.

Yellow stained teeth: brush with baking soda
Pimples on face: use alchol to dry these up if you cannot afford anything else.

Look at me not at the floor and answer questions in a clear voice not mumbling......and be willing to do any job and work any hours....

Following these tips will greatly help....I hear people saying I have been everywhere and can't get a job....
1.. think WHY
2. ask someone else to be honest with you even if it hurts your feelings
3. be an adult
4. leave cigarettes and cell phone in your vehicle.....employeers do not want to see either

Well well aren't we the helpful one. Your critique on personal hygene was not needed and helps promote a sterotype of people in Wayne County that is not true. Your not an HR manager and if your basing your hiring only on personal appearence your walking a fine line in discrimation during the hiring process and a very shallow person. Only knucklehead place like senture with a few weeks of work here and there would use those criteria.
I have worked in HR and it was in factories in the Midwest. During the hiring process I knew who was getting the jobs before the interviews based on resume, references, skills, and police records. The interviews were just confirming it or weeding out those who lie on applications. Things like not hiring a person based on long hair is a violation of the civil rights act unless it is a bonafide job requirement to have short hair around the machines.
I have hired people who looked like Hells Angels for welding jobs at General Electric starting out over $20 an hour. It was a factory not a bank or receptionist position. Yes you should dress up a little for any interview but if your wearing a three piece suit to a job interview at a factory expect not to get a call back. We gave walk around tours and the people that brought thier own saftey glasses and had steel toed boots on made the best impression.

What about a pair of dress slacks and a pull over sweater(for a woman) interviewing for a position? Would that be acceptable? I dont have a lot of dressy clothes, but would like to look nice.
oh yeah

That is fine and I worked 29 years for GE and the last ten was in HR before retiring to Lake Cumberland. The person giving all those grooming tips is crazy. Yes look good, be clean, and presentable but remember you applying for a job in a factory. Don't wear a Sundy dress or suit. Nice Khakis clean shirt tucked in with a belt is great but don't run out and shave your beard and cut your poney tail off then put on a three piece suit.

Focus on your job skills and communications. That stuff about the "teeth" is a sterotype to this area. The few that I see with bad teeth are over 40 and most likely not abe to afford a dentist right now. Teeth wear out, the hiring manager there will be focusing on skills and appearence will be secondary. Here are some real tips:

* Make eye contact, it shows respect and interest in what is being said.
* Know something about the company before you go in: google it and know what they make and if you can find out "jargon" like type of saws, machines, or manufacturing process used there work it in to the conversation.
* Don't talk bad about past or current employers. Is a sign of a bad attitude. if you are working at McDonalds now and asked why you are quitting don't say it sucks and they treat me like crap. Say it is a great place to work but I feel this job has more to offer in a career and I can help this company reach it's organizational goals: provide an example with a skill such as being a team player or knowing how to operate equipment used there.
* Don't show up an hour before the interview, check in promptly 15 minutes before the time scheduled and DON"T BE LATE! Being too early can hurt you because they are not ready for you and spending the time in the lobby only gives you a chance of exposing flaws to the office staff who might report it to the hiring manager.
* Don't wear too much perfume or body spray.
* Have a resume and letters of reference to present at time of interview. Don't lie on it but do write it to fit the job description.
* Be yourself and remember this 20 to 15% will not make it out of the probationary peroid. If your not hired the first time write a thank you letter and ask that your application stay on file. Shows you want to work. I imagine hey have 4 to 6 applications for every job. With all the skilled wood workers from the closed houseboat factories and carpenters laid off in construction jobs the company has a great talent pool to select from and you may not get the job at first, but give it 30 days when people quit or miss without excuse. You could land the job then.

Woodmark is a good place to work and for the area the pay is good. It is a factory and as you are well aware there are rumors and lies that get started but for most people there that want to do their job and get paid for it. It is a good job. I can assure you that no one is killing themself at woodmark because it is not that hard of a job. yes it can be stressful but so can everything in life. so apply and good luck. hope you get the job.

they stop taking app. but we need good workers. i have work there for 10 yrs. i went in for my interview with a t-shirt and jeans. the majority come in cant pass a drug test. talking about how you are dressed..people dont understand those drug test are not cheap. and if you wanted a job you would put in a effort. no one wants to work beside someone that stinks. there is work clothes and there is just plain filth. they hired 12 young kids in one week and they all quit. they are not use to working. most drove vehicles mommy and daddy bought for them so they have no work ethic. bring on good workers. the jobs are not that hard.
so what
