An Interview with Dave Geiter, Mill Room Supervisor

For our first employee interview, I had the privilege of speaking with Dave Geiter, the supervisor of our real Mill Room. Dave has been working for Bob’s since the very first mill. See that’s him sitting on the steps of our very first mill [bottom row, furthest to the left]. He was kind enough to spend a few minutes with me today.

Cassidy: Dave, everyone here knows you’re one of Bob’s original employees. How long have you worked for Bob?

Dave: 28 years

C: Wow! That really says a lot. Describe for our readers what you do here and what you love about it.

D: I get to supervise the Milling Department. That means I get to over see the cleaning, milling, and packaging of many of our whole grain products. I enjoy working with the people that I’m around. I also like the fact that we are making good food for people to eat.

C: What is your favorite whole grain food and why?

D: Brown Rice Farina because it’s smooth and creamy.

C: What do you like to top your cereal with?

D: Flaxseed Meal

C: Use three words to describe your ideal day off for our readers.

D: Family. Outdoors. Active.

C. That sure sounds like a nice day. What do you like to do in your free time?

D: I like to be active which could involve fishing, riding my bike, running, sports of all kinds, reading, and hunting.

C: One last question for our readers before I let you get back to work. If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?

D: To somehow help the Ducks beat the Huskies for the next 100 years!

C: Spoken like a true Oregonian. How long have you lived in Oregon, Dave?

D: All of my life.

C: Thanks for taking the time to share your story with our readers, Dave.
