Dwayne Thomas - Employee Spotlight April 2023

Dwayne Thomas
Warehouse Associate - Lafayette, LA - Surrey Street Store

Dwayne Thomas began his career in 2016 as a warehouse associate at our Home Furniture Plus Bedding Surrey Street location. He left after a couple of years, and in 2021 he returned to pick up where he left off. Prior to joining our team, Dwayne worked for McDonald's Corporation in Lafayette, LA.  

What do you like best about your job? 

When asked what he likes best about his job, Dwayne kept it short and to the point by saying, “I love the people!” 

Riggins Dore, Surrey Street Store Manager, says:

“Dwayne Thomas is on his second stint with the company and we happily welcomed him back. He works extremely hard and is always the first one to come to ask if there is anything else he can work on. He goes the extra mile day in and day out.”

Willie Leblanc, Assistant Store Manager, also adds:

“In my eyes, Dwayne is a make-it-happen type of guy. He is very talented at fixing things. He worked with us before and moved away but came back to work with us and we are proud to have him back. His work speaks for itself. Dwayne exhibits outstanding performance and has a great personality.”

When Dwayne is not at work: 

When not at work Dwayne is probably listening to music, cruising around, or traveling. Dwayne also says, “I have a pressure washing job on the side that keeps me busy when I’m not here.” 

The ONE thing most co-workers may not know is:

"Most people may perceive me as being stand-offish, but once we get to know each other, I’m really just a soft-hearted kind of guy,” says Dwayne. 

 Advice for anyone wishing to join our Home Furniture Team:

When asked what advice he would give to anyone wishing to join the Home Furniture team Dwayne stated, “This is a great company that offers opportunities for growth if you want it.”

Born and raised in Lafayette, LA Dwayne resides in Carencro, LA with his family.
