Employment:

Ulmer’s does hire teens.  But “…..if somebody comes in looking like a slob, you can’t understand what they’re saying, they don’t look you in the eye, these are all first impressions, and so they’re pretty important. So when a person shows up for a job, I felt sorry for a lot of young students coming to me for work not having an understanding of what really it – how they should present themselves to a company or store…..”
