Fay Zachary- Employee Spotlight September 2021
Fay’s Journey here:
Before joining our team in 2009 at our Airline location in Baton Rouge, Fay Zachary worked in the grocery industry for 26 years and five years working at Office Depot.

Fay’s past retail experience led her to “doing a bit of everything” when she joined our team. And now, her job tasks consist of “still doing a bit of everything!” She also adds, “And the rest is history! I love it here!”

Fay’s skills can be felt anywhere in the store ranging from helping customers at the front counter to managing the warehouse and assisting management.

Harry Wiggins, store manager, adds, “Fay has been a long-term member of the team here at store 50, and I cannot even begin to describe how important she is to the daily operation of the store. She provides great confidence to the sales team, ensuring that the inventory is accurate and provides outstanding customer service. She never hesitates to jump in wherever needed and always does an outstanding job regardless of the task. Fay spends the bulk of her time taking care of others both at work and home. She is always in demand and on the go. She is such an important person in so many lives and truly appreciated by me and all of the employees and customers. Thank you, Fay, for all that you do.”

What do you like best about your job?
“I love what I do, and the fact that I’m not stuck doing the same thing every day is awesome!”

When Fay isn’t at work...
“I enjoy reading and spending time with friends and my seven grandchildren, who range in ages from 3 years to 25 years old.”

The ONE thing most of us may not know?
“That my grandson, Eli, was one of the children featured as a spokesperson for Saint Jude's a few years ago with Home Furniture. He now lives in Columbus, Montana, and is considered fully healed!”

Advice for anyone wanting to join our Home Furniture team?
“To love what you do. Home Furniture is a great company to work for. They care about you. You’re not just a number.”

Born in Alabama and raised in Mississippi since the 6th grade, Fay now resides in Ethel, LA, with her husband, Steve.
