Inspector:The inspector has a challenging job. They must be able to criticize another employee’s work and then instruct and train without causing ill feelings in those whose work they are inspecting. Rather, the inspector should be able to motivate the finishers to seek excellence in all they do. This person must be knowledgeable in the fabric care industry and have a flare or passion for clothing design and presentation. Not only will the inspector be responsible for monitoring press quality from the finishers but also will be challenged to continuously create new and innovative ideas for packaging the finished garments or other items to create a dynamic presentation to the customer. This is a position that will require attention to detail and a person with great people skills. The right person for this position could command the top wages earned for this industry.

Mark-In Operator: A Mark-In operator must have at least 6 months experience as a presser/finisher or at least two years experience in clothing retail. At Mark-In the operator receives incoming customer orders and must properly inventory, tag, mark, and classify, all pieces brought in to be cleaned. A broad knowledge of fabrics and fashion is required here.
Finisher:A finisher is a clothing press operator. This is a demanding job that can sometimes be hot and humid. This is where the “work” gets done and without dependable finishers, the other departments would fail. The best finishers are detail oriented but conscious of the importance of blending accuracy with speed. There are different finishing stations depending on the item(s) being worked on. There is the “pant” station which includes the pressing of shorts, skirts, and neck ties; a “sweater” station that includes soft knits and heat sensitive fibers; and a “silk” station where some silks, linens, and other hard finish garments are pressed. There is also a station dedicated to pressing laundered dress shirts, pants with starch, and table covers. Each station requires a person to learn the basic operations of that station and the particulars of the items commonly pressed at that station. An expert finisher will not only know the basics of pressing but also be able to adapt to the challenges of properly finishing new fashion styles and fabrics as they appear seasonally and randomly.
