August Mosley – Employee Spotlight February 2021

August Mosley – Employee Spotlight February 2021
One of Home Furniture Plus Bedding’s consistent top performers in sales, Mr. August Mosley, has been with our Beaumont location since September, 2000.

Larry Domingue, manager of our Beaumont location, says:

“August is the very first salesperson that I recruited and hired after becoming the store manager in 2000. If I never do anything right again, that first hire was my best decision ever! August has a reputation among his peers and his customers as the ultimate professional. He treats everyone with respect. I have leaned on him over the years for wise counsel in matters that are work related and even personal. His advice has given me good guidance throughout the years.

August always has a relaxed and calm demeanor. Customers always comment on how patient and helpful he is. August’s coworkers all comment often on how they would like to be more like him. You never know if he is having a good day or a bad day. You always get the same August. August just has a way with people.

One of the nicknames that his coworkers gave him years ago was “The Professor.” Whenever new merchandise arrives, August is the first to go over and begin to look at all of the features and benefits the new items offer. He has consistently worked on his craft for decades. This dedication has resulted in consistency and excellence for many years.

August recently informed me that he will be retiring at the end of April. I will miss him in so many ways, yet, I am excited that he will enter a new chapter in his life that is well deserved. Congratulations on a great career and a job well done!”

Prior to August’s many years in the furniture field, August was busy serving the public as a police officer for 7 years in Baytown, Texas along with serving as Chief in Ames, Texas.

August already had a treasure trove of experience in the furniture industry before joining the Home Furniture Plus Bedding team. For 14 years, he managed a staff of 18 at American TV and Appliance in Michigan, and banked 2 years of sales at a local competitor in Beaumont.

Born and raised in Devers, Texas, August resides there with his wife, Carla, and their dog, Buster. Also, if you’re ever at our Nederland, Texas location, you may run into someone that resembles August! His daughter, Luci Laughlin, has followed in her fathers footsteps and works in sales as well.

When asked to share the one thing about himself that his coworkers may not be aware of, August replied:

“Well, while I was a police officer, I had my own radio talk show called ‘The Baytown Police Department and You’ on KBUK in Baytown. Plus, I also ended up hosting the Sunday Morning Gospel show along with DJing in the afternoons for their Country and Western program.”

Outside of Home Furniture Plus Bedding, August is very proud of having bowled a perfect 300 game in his days of being an avid bowler. His main hobbies these days consist of fishing and golfing with his sons.

August says:

“Thank You Ged and Karol Fleming for creating a business that makes it easy for customers to purchase and a culture where all employees strive for Total Customer Satisfaction.
I feel very fortunate to have worked for this great company, Home Furniture Plus Bedding.”

Thank you, August, from all of us at Home Furniture Plus Bedding.
