  • Dave always made me feel that I belonged at DMC! He told me have faith you will fit in, give it some time. There was a lot of people leaving to go to other companies at that time. I learnt [ faith is seeing light with your heart. When all your eyes see is darkness. ] - Posted by: Dallas oleschuh (Co worker at DMC) on: May 05, 2023
