Hired for holidays, she never quit: 93-year-old woman marks 75 years working for one company

Frances Moore was hired to help out for the holidays at an Alabama jewelry store in 1939 and she's still there.

The 93-year-old Birmingham woman is celebrating 75 years as an employee of the family-owned Bromberg & Co. She's the longest-tenured employee at one of the nation's oldest family-owned retailers.

Moore, then a teenager, was hired to polish silver on Nov. 21, 1939. By around 1970, she was managing Bromberg's multimillion-dollar jewelry inventory.

Moore says her parents taught her to work hard and Bromberg's is a good employer, so she never left. She retired from full-time work a few years ago but still comes in to sort and tag jewelry.

Bromberg's President Ricky Bromberg says Moore is still a valued employee. The company honored her with a breakfast Friday.
