Argent Employee Spotlight – Melissa Harty

Q: What led you to Argent and what makes it unique?

A: I got hired at Argent through a hiring agency. It is unique because I hadn’t heard of Argent before, even though it was in my hometown. I was encouraged to do an interview with the company, and I am so glad that I did! I’m very grateful to be here!

Q: Why do you enjoy working at Argent?

A: I enjoy working at Argent because of the super friendly and family atmosphere! I have never worked with a company that truly knows what being a TEAM means until I landed here, I truly
feel I have a work family! I enjoy my job because of it and look forward to coming to work every day when I have that type of environment to work in.

Q: What does the company mean to you?

A: Argent means to have a career opportunity that I did not have before. This was everything I was looking for in a job! I needed a long term position, where I could grow and learn, and eventually
move up, and Argent provides that! I can take care of myself and my family, without worrying when I’m out when something comes up. It’s peace of mind and heart! It means so much to have all that Argent provides!

Q: What is a random fact about you?

A: I absolutely love jazz music!

Q: If you could meet anybody, dead or alive, who would it be?

A: It would have to be Drew Brees. He is so humble and is one of the best quarterbacks in my opinion. And he plays for my favorite team of course, go Saints!
