The Queens Center mall last week opened up its doors to match up stores that need help for the coming holidays with people looking for work.
Twenty-four retailers set up shop at the food court on the mall’s lower level. The line of job seekers at noon ran the length of the interview area, extended up to the second floor and wound around three sides of the escalator bank.
After three decades in business, J&B Home Improvements still specializes in windows, roofing and siding, but the firm’s most important quality is satisfying customers. Owner Jeff Bershad of Howard Beach grew up watching his father, Bernie, run the business, and says that because of his love for construction and his desire to help other people, he’s still happy with what he’s doing today. The results show on every job site.
J&B recently added masonry, countertops and painting to its list of specialties. In the past five years, due to the change in the economy, Jeff has had to adjust his daily operations to keep providing excellent service.
