Employee Questionare


By: David Gravois

If you were granted 3 wishes, what would they be?

Ren Cheramie - Be able to hunt every day of the duck season (its only 60 days), an unlimited supply of gasoline (to fish), and a personal helicopter so I would never have to fight traffic.

Melanie Toups - For the world and its people to be at peace, have the ability to heal and never run out of money.

Amanda Reeves - That I could eat all the donuts I want and never gain weight, spend the rest of my life on vacation traveling the word, and meet a ninja turtle (preferably Rafael…he was my favorite).

Tina Lasala - World happiness (yes, I know it’s corny), for my children to grow up to be successful in whatever path they choose, to win some big lottery of course (Money does help some things. Lol).

Andrew Rodrigue - End world hunger, cure all forms of cancer, and to become the President of the United States.

Gabrielle Pitre - Unlimited supply of money, to be able to eat whatever I want, and for my grandma to live forever.

Johnnie Phillips - Stop global warming, more money, and world peace

If you could be any animal, what would you be?

Ren Cheramie - A big goliath grouper

Melanie Toups - A giraffe. They are very fashionable and have fabulous eye lashes.

Amanda Reeves - When I went to Disney World, there were squirrels everywhere. I want to be one of those squirrels. They live at the happiest place on earth and get to eat all the time because tourists feed them.

Tina Lasala - A dolphin because they are highly intelligent, family oriented and very sociable. Plus, no one really eats them.

Andrew Rodrigue - A monkey

Gabrielle Pitre - Of all animals, I would probably choose to be a bird so that I could fly from place to place. On the other hand, my cat seems to have a pretty gravy life.

Johnnie Phillips - A lion

If you were to move to another state, which one would it be?

Ren Cheramie - Oregon

Melanie Toups - I wouldn’t move, but if I had to, Texas, so I can still be close to my friends and family

Amanda Reeves - Colorado, so I could snowboard all winter

Tina Lasala - Texas. I have family there, I never run out of entertainment when visiting, and it’s close enough to come home often.

Andrew Rodrigue - Wyoming

Gabrielle Pitre - California

Johnnie Phillips - Georgia

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would buy?

Ren Cheramie - Without a doubt, 37ft Freeman fishing boat with 3 Yamaha 350’s.

Melanie Toups - A house

Amanda Reeves - A vacation home in St. Thomas

Tina Lasala - A house for my mom.

Andrew Rodrigue - Blackhawk Ranch

Gabrielle Pitre - I would schedule a really nice vacation!

Johnnie Phillips - New home

If you had the chance to post a status that the whole world would see, what would it be?

Ren Cheramie - Turn up the Funk, and shake ya Junk

Melanie Toups - Proverbs 3: 5-6

Amanda Reeves - If you are driving in the left lane and are continuously passed up by other cars, you need to accept that it’s time to get in the right lane.

Tina Lasala - Attitude is Everything

Andrew Rodrigue - “God is good, all the time.”

Gabrielle Pitre - Be kind to your fellow man.

Johnnie Phillips - Let’s all fight for World Peace.

What is your favorite restaurant?

Ren Cheramie - Double D in Larose, LA – Can’t beat those banana splits.

Melanie Toups - Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse

Amanda Reeves - Irene’s in the French Quarter, it’s classic New Orleans

Tina Lasala - This is probably the hardest question for me. I love to eat out and have lots of “favorites”. However, one that is at the top of my list is definitely Jacques Imo’s in New Orleans.

Andrew Rodrigue - Toups Meatery

Gabrielle Pitre - Hard one. My favorite restaurant would be out of PF Changs, Big Mike’s BBQ, or Cochon Butcher.

Johnnie Phillips - Red Lobster

Why do you work for Danos?

Ren Cheramie - To be able to come to work every day and work next to people that are closer to friends and family than just co-workers.

Melanie Toups - Because I love what I do. I am very blessed to say that I am happy to wake up everyday knowing that I have a great job with a great company. The fact that I work with some pretty awesome people helps, too.

Amanda Reeves - Because the people I work with are so nice and they bring me donuts.

Tina Lasala - There are definitely many reasons I work for Danos. I truly enjoy the family oriented atmosphere and people here. I also see how Danos provides opportunities for the future as it grows and expands, allowing its employees to advance along the way.

Andrew Rodrigue - Because I wanted to make an impact within a company that holds the same values that I do.

Gabrielle Pitre - My previous place of employment had a wonderful family-like atmosphere. This was one thing that I was really looking for in my new place of employment and that has proven to be true here at Danos. I feel valued and respected as an employee and as an individual.

Johnnie Phillips - It’s a better paying job for me and I like the challenges and the personnel that I have had the pleasure to meet.
