Rene McGee - Employee Spotlight November 2022

Renee McGee
Accounting, Lake Charles

Rene’s Journey Here:

Rene McGee has been with Home Furniture Plus Bedding Accounting Office for 20+  years fulfilling the position of Inventory Accounts Payable. Prior to joining our team, Rene served in the United States Air Force for four years and did accounting for a Family and Youth Counseling Agency in Lake Charles, LA 

What do you like best about your job?

“One of the best things about working for Home Furniture, is my supervisor, Lori Berwick. Lori is one of the nicest, kindest people I know. She has faith in you that you can do your job, and do it without her having to micro-manage. Also, I love mastering the challenge of a big part of my job which consists of doing sales tax for all of our stores. I also like working and communicating with others in our company that deal with inventory and buying concerns.”

Lori Berwick, Home Furniture’s Chief Financial Officer, adds, “Rene has been an asset to the company since the day she started 20 years ago. She came to us with experience and was able to step into the position of inventory accounts payable right away and do the job well. She likes to learn new things.  After being with us for a few years, she also took on the task of preparing our sales tax returns. I can always count on her to do the things for which she is responsible and complete them in a timely manner. I can also count on her to help with anything that needs to be done, whether it is ordering supplies for the office, making sure we always have postage, stuffing envelopes, etc. She is a true team player, and I am glad she is on our team!”

When Rene is not at work:

“My passion is my 16-month-old granddaughter, Sophia! I would spend every weekend with her if I could! And now, we have a grandson on the way as well! I also love gathering with my family and listening and dancing to Zydeco music!”

The ONE thing most co-workers may not know:

“Something most co-workers may not know about me is that I am 17 years cancer-free. When I was diagnosed, I was only here two years, and the way I was treated throughout the process made me more than certain that I was at the right place concerning employment.”

Advice for anyone wishing to join our Home Furniture Team:

“Home Furniture is the best company to work for. Everyone is down-to-earth and approachable, regardless if it’s the owner on down. If you maintain a good work ethic, you’ll have the opportunity to go far.”

Born and raised in Lake Charles, LA, Rene resides in her hometown with Robert, her husband of 33 years. The “empty nesters” have two grown sons, Quinton and Jordan.
