Ottawa County customers see David’s abilities

David Salyers is the Service Clerk from Community Markets that is on posters and billboards throughout Ottawa County with the logo “Ability @ Work”. David, a resident of Ottawa County, has worked for the Oak Harbor Community Markets store for the past 15 years. Recently David and Lester Weatherwax, Supervisor and Store Manager of Community Markets, discussed what is behind that great smile David flashed for the billboards.

David shared that he previously worked in the fast food business for 8-9 years before being hired at the grocery store. He remembers the day he was hired vividly and how his soon to be boss went to Riverview Industries Inc. (now RVI Inc.) to interview another gentleman before his interview. David explains that he went in for his interview and was hired on the spot. He began his job at the grocery store by learning multiple tasks including cleaning, stocking and bagging groceries.
