Team Focus: Q&A with Sandy Chasteen, Office Manager and Human Resources

It’s time for another Team Focus, where we zoom in on one member of our fantastic team at Hay Creek Companies.

This week, we would like to introduce you to Sandy Chasteen. Sandy is our Office Manager and Human Resources person, but like many others at Hay Creek Companies, she wears many hats.  Sandy says, “Main focus is in human resources.  I also process the weekly payroll and am familiar with most of the programs we use, so when someone has a question on how to do something in a program, I can usually help them out.  I am always up to learning new jobs and tasks.”

Sandy has worked for Hay Creek for nearly 4 years. She is the leader of our Caring Team. Learn more about "Caught You Caring"

Let's get to know Sandy a little more with this Q and A 


Q: What is unique about working for Hay Creek Companies?  

A: The way they care about their employees financially, emotionally and spiritually.  


Q: What are the 3 most important things in your life

A: Family, Faith and Health


Q: Who has impacted you most in your career and how?  

A: My parents.  My parents were born in the 20s and both grew up on farms in hard times. They taught me that hard work is important and always do your best job.  


Q: What advice do you have for prospective Hay Creek Companies work candidates?  

A: Every day put out your best work effort. Work hard and do your best. The best feeling at the end of the day is knowing that you did your best and did not just do enough to get the job done.


A: What are 3 words you would use to describe Hay Creek Companies

A: Caring, Family and Fun


Q: What would you like to be famous for?  

A: For just being me. Sometimes I think of what my son said in a black belt essay he wrote. My son loves karate and took to karate naturally. When he was young, he enjoyed watching videos of Bruce Lee and of course like every kid, he wanted to be just like Bruce Lee. As he was approaching the time of him earning his first degree black belt, he had to write an essay about becoming a black belt. At the end of his essay, he wrote, “I don’t want to be the next Bruce Lee, I want to be Connor Chasteen.” His words remind me that I want to be remembered for being me. I hope that I will be famous for the impact I have made in other people’s lives.
