A former Chef, amongst his many other talents,  John Jones is an afternoon shift team leader here at FoodFlo. He seems to never be without a friendly smile and hello, and always focused on the job at hand. John joined us for a chat about the man behind the role.

John Jones

What do you like most about your job?

The People I work with and the different tasks within the role that you can do and the variation amongst those jobs.

What advise would you give to new staff?

Not to get frustrated at first. Take your time, take it easy and learn off as many people as you possibly can. Everyone has something to give to each other, and never think you know it all because you are always learning!

How do you recharge?

Get away with my wife and try new cafés and different towns. Get away… Road Trips! Best recent ones would be a toss-up between Napier and Greytown.

One memory you most treasure?

Marrying my wife!

Do you have a hidden talent?

I play the bass guitar and sing in a heavy metal/hardcore band, doing it since about nine years old. I have joined up with a group of guys, and we are doing more video online band thing, all originals, no covers! Inflicted is the name of the band. I love my music!
