Marilyn Ames: Traffic Control Expert

At any other company, traffic control might involve directing traffic. At Bob’s Red Mill, traffic control takes on a whole new meaning. We ship our products all over the United States and Canada, and Marilyn Ames helps find the best deal for our customers to get our products to your stores quickly and efficiently.

Marilyn took some time out of her busy schedule to answer a few questions for you.

Cassidy: How long have you worked for Bob?

Marilyn: 18 Years.

C: That’s quite a long time, you must really like your job. Can you describe for our readers what you do here and what you like about working here?

M: I work with a wonderful group of people in the customer service department. I enter the distributor orders, do the billing in the morning and I work with the representatives from various trucking companies working hard to get us great freight rates. I love the people, the product, the work environment and my job.

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

M: Oats! I can’t live without oatmeal for breakfast 5 times a week. That wasn’t always the case. When I started working at Bob’s, I was a junk food junkie.

C: What do you like to put on your oatmeal?

M: Brown sugar, nuts and raisins.

C: Yum! What do you like to do with your free time?

M: I enjoy photography, scrap booking and golf.

C: One last question for our readers, tell us what your least favorite vegetable is and your all-time favorite dessert.

M: My least favorite vegetable has to be over cooked spinach and my favorite dessert is the All American Chocolate Cake from Costco.

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