Meet Vincent Williams. Vincent has worked for us for almost 1 year, he came to us last Spring by way of Project SEARCH DC, a program that helps train students with intellectual and developmental disabilities find competitive employment. We interviewed and hired Vincent to be a stock clerk. He has since shown that he has too diverse of a skill set to be locked down in any singular capacity. While he still stocks shelves, he also manages a register when we need additional help checking people out, he helps customers solve basic hardware problems, and is always looking for new ways to increase his role with us. His willingness to learn, dedication to his work, and professional attitude are all things he learned from Project SEARCH.

We are looking for other local businesses to participate in a job fair for students from Project SEARCH who are currently seeking employment. As most businesses can attest to, it is difficult to find loyal and quality talent, and that’s why we are hosting a job fair for Project SEARCH to get the students in front of potential employers.

We are currently gauging preliminary interest from local businesses wanting to participate in the job fair. With a finalized date to be sent out in the near future. These are talented kids who deserve an opportunity to find meaningful employment, on top of that—Vincent is not an outlier, anyone who comes through this program has the skill set to be a productive addition to any team. If you are a DC area business and are interested, please respond to [email protected] by Friday April, 5, 2019.

Random musings about customer mentality in advance of/during a snowstorm from your local hardware store. Customer A, also known as the customer who preps at least 24 hours in advance of the storm, walks into the store and is very particular about what they want. "Do you actually have one with a bent handle, I am looking more for something that style. And I only take ice melt in 25 lbs bags. Anything more or less and I will not purchase it." Customer B, also comes in before the storm hits, but only with a few hours to spare, still somewhat particular, but less so than customer A. "That shovel looks good enough, and I will take whatever ice melt you have, but only if it’s pet friendly." Then there is Customer C, everybody loves Customer C. Customer C comes in as the snow is already accumulating and prep is no longer possible, it’s pure reactionary shopping. “You haven no more shovels?!?! What about garden trowels, do you have garden trowels??? I will take whatever you have. The apocalypse is here and I can’t fight this with just my bare hands, I will take anything that can be used to push or melt the snow. Please help me!!!!”

With this weekend’s possibility for snow, whether you are customer A,B,C we got you covered 😉

Last night, Longtime Jenks owner Victor Siegel passed away at age 96. After returning home from World War II, he bought the company from Helen Jenks and remained at the helm until 1987 when he sold it to his two sons. He stayed with the company as an unpaid intern until age 89. There is no better written record of his tenure at Jenks than this 1976 article from the Washington Star.
