Anyone who calls our phone main line, emails for general information or swings by the Hornig Companies office interacts with Darlene, our office manager/ receptionist/ greeter/ troubleshooter extraordinaire. This month we sat down with the one and only Darlene and asked her some questions..
Q: How did you get started with Hornig Companies?
A: I got started with Hornig Companies as a resident, then I became a caretaker and finally joined the team full-time seven years ago!
Q: What do you enjoy most about your job at Hornig Companies?
A: I pride myself on providing excellent customer service day in and day out. I particularly love that my role at Hornig Companies allows for a wide variety of problem solving and communication.
Q: Can you describe your job?
A: “I get to listen, interpret and apply what I know and help people figure things out. It makes my day when the “I got it” moments happen!”
Q: What do you do outside of work in your free time?
A: I enjoy cooking and working on crafty projects. I especially loves spicy food!
Q: Have any recommendations for food around the Twin Cities?
A: Theresa’s in Golden Valley is my #1 favorite restaurant right now. I also really enjoy Everest on Grand in St Paul, Namaste Café and Kinhdo in Uptown, and Red Cow has the best turkey burger!
We love Darlene’s quick smile and infectious laugh. Next time you reach out to the office, introduce yourself to Darlene, our customer service queen!
