Old hands; still busy.
Nowadays when one fills out a job application, you probably have to do like I do, and go grab a ziplock bag, or some folder, with alllll of your previous employment information. It’s a pain.
This beautiful lady started working for a jewelry store in Alabama as seasonal, or temporary help, and she is still there SEVENTY FIVE years later!
Frances Moore began polishing silver at Bromberg and Company in Mountain Brook, Alabama when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president. She made eight dollars a week, and the trolley ride to her job was but seven cents.
Later, she moved to “gift wrapping” and by 1970 she was managing the multi-million dollar stock of the retail operation. Several years ago, she cut back to “part-time” but she can’t see quitting anytime soon.
It is this attitude of looking forward and not backward that I believe has kept this spry little lady going despite having recovered from a broken hip and knee surgery. She still lives in her own home, but receives some help with people from her church.
“Frances is a remarkable person,” said Bromberg’s President Rick Bromberg. “She is the longest-serving employee in the history of our company, including family.”
