Alvin "A.J." Jordan
When did you join Royal Talens North America (RTNA)?
I started as a temp around Thanksgiving of 2015. I was here to help Jonathan (Warehouse Manager) put the master scale in place.
What is your role here?
I am Warehouse Lead. I can find anything at any given time as long as someone didn’t move it on me and not tell me. If it’s in inventory, I’ll find it.
Where did you work prior to RTNA & what did you do there?
I used to work security at Six Flags New England. You’d be surprised what people tried to bring in there.
What is your favorite aspect to working here?
I like the people. The people are very nice.
What is your favorite Royal Talens product? Why?
They’re all my favorite products. I can’t chose one and risk another getting jealous.
How do you spend your time away from work?
With my family, my children, my wife, and a nice cold one.
As a child, what did you want to be as an adult?
It was hard growing up in the Bronx, you just wanted to stay alive. My mother died when I was 19 so I wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to help people. When I was 21 I had my first son. Now he’s 21 and going to college.
If gifted an all-expenses paid trip, describe your dream vacation.
I would love to go to the Netherlands to see their warehouse and how they operate.
