What the community wants to know is whether or not former PVH employees will be given fair consideration when applying for open positions thereat? Let's not let Lou Ycre's failings be held against the loyal employees who made this facility what it was to the community!

I heard that everyone who applies will be given the same considerations, whether you worked for PVH in the past or not.
