It is interesting that three companies have different personnel system in treatment of specialists. Company A treats specialists as same as other employees such as clerks or merchandizers. Company B treats patternmakers same as other employees but treats designers differently, remuneration of designers are determined by annual base. Company C treats specialists differnt from other employees, both designers and pattern-makers are contracted and remunerated every year.
