Leighton’s Journey Here:

 Leighton “Trip” Arceneaux has been with Home Furniture Plus Bedding since December 2018 working as a “Receiver” at the Distribution Center in Lafayette, LA.

 Prior to joining our team, Leighton worked in the food industry for 13 years as a prepper for Prejean’s in Carencro, LA.

What do you like best about your job?

“What I like best about my job is being able to work with good people. Home Furniture has wonderful management. I appreciate the benefits, like the holiday pay, hurricane pay, etc. Plus, I like working all the trucks in receiving! It’s also good exercise!”

Carleen Melancon, Co-Distribution Center Manager, adds:

“Leighton works in our receiving department. He is responsible for offloading receiving trucks on a daily basis. Once the trucks are all offloaded, Leighton will then assist in offloading the Intercompany transfers that come back to the Distribution Center. 

Leighton has a phenomenal attendance record and he has had perfect attendance since the day he started. Awesome job Leighton!! He will always be the first person on the receiving dock ready and willing to start work. Leighton has a pleasant attitude and is respected by all his fellow co-workers.”

When Leighton is not at work:

 “On my days off, I like traveling to different Louisiana cities. I enjoy going to their malls and trying out different restaurants. Sundays are different. I enjoy the outdoors and I like to relax and watch TV. My favorite program is “On Patrol Live.” 

The ONE thing most co-workers may not know:

“That I am an amateur rapper! I’ve known a good rapper for a few years now and I’ve enjoyed rapping ever since!”

Advice for anyone wishing to join our Home Furniture Team:

“Put all your effort into it, no matter what position you’re in. Don’t slack. Give 110% all the time! This is a good company for advancement.”

Born in Lafayette, LA, and raised in Carencro, LA, Leighton “Trip” Arceneaux resides in Carencro with his parents.
