Meet John

In today’s world, it’s rare to find people who have worked at one place for an extended period of time.  Meet John who has worked at Barnes & Noble for 18 years!  John loves his job where he works primarily in the fiction and mystery sections of the store. John shelves new books and helps keep things in order.  

John is more than eager to talk about the challenges new technology and COVID have created for both Barnes & Noble and for him.  Although fewer shipments come into the store resulting in less work for John, he’s confident he will be able to return to his previous schedule once COVID is less of an issue. But, John adds, “Amazon is creating some real problems for bookstores.”

John is not a fan of cooking, but he hasn’t met a macaroni and cheese he doesn’t like.  In the sports world, he’s a fan of Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks who has a strong faith and ‘carries himself well.’   John’s favorite movie is The Avengers (especially Thor).  In his free time, John plays online video games with his cousin.  On occasion, you might find John at the bowling alley or sharing local weather predictions.

Sitting down and having a discussion with John will leave you entertained, enlightened, and eager to have another.  John is a kind, compassionate, and helpful member of the Green Level community.
