Interview by PATRICIA R. OLSEN
Johnnie Riley, 63, is a manager at Madame Paulette, in Long Island City, Queens
Q. What is Madame Paulette, and what is your role as a manager?
A. Weâ€™re a dry cleaning and restoration company. Iâ€™m in charge of the dry cleaning department, and I specialize in leather, suede and fur.
How did you get this job?
I answered a want ad in a New York paper 15 years ago. I had worked at my fatherâ€™s dry cleaning company and for another dry cleaner after that. During the interview, the owner decided to test me on spot cleaning, and I thought, â€œReally?â€ I had a suit on. But I know chemicals and have the skills, and I wasnâ€™t worried. I got the job. I became manager about 10 years ago.
