It’s rewarding working at a place that gives back in so many ways. Superior Uniform is part of the Adopt-A-Shore program and has been hosting on-site blood drives since 1987! Participating in these activities really makes me feel like part of a great team.

I’ve been a part of the Superior family for six years… and appreciate all of the extras offered. Like an on-site Yoga class, a walking program and monthly wellness and nutrition seminars. It feels good knowing I’m important to the company as a person.

The average employee tenure at Superior Group of Companies is 15 years and I’ve personally been part of the Superior Group of Companies family for 14 years. I am delighted to work for a company that provides such great job stability for their employees.

I’m proud to be part of such a wildly diverse team of talent. No matter how different our backgrounds and skill sets might be, each of us is appreciated for our contribution to our common goals. To me, that is truly the meaning of teamwork.

Superior is a publicly traded company who does business nationally… but here I’m not just a number. The opportunity for career enrichment is unlimited and my ideas are taken seriously.

Fashion Seal Healthcare provides cutting edge uniform programs and image apparel for our customers. It makes me proud to be part of a company that continually strives for apparel innovation, and is recognized for it within the textile industry.
