My typical day is mainly good get a lot done as fast as I can!
I learned to do many things like boxing and palletizing also learned how to run a lot of the main machinery and quality checks on the merchandise to see if it would meet the desired condition before being shipped out.
the management was ok.(but could improve)
The co-workers were great they were helpful, funny and easy to get along with.
The hardest part was keeping up with the bread on the conveyor with out it over flowing.

Customer Service, Management roles (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 28, 2016
Even though my District and Regional managers BOTH said that my 5th manager Loved me one day and that the next day she hated me they took her word. Eventually they unloaded the entire staff but never called me back.
The coffee - I had a great D/M
Too quick to turn against you and too much movement
Merchandising (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – August 23, 2015
Management and overall job was good. The pay was above average but the working hours ranged from 65-85 hours a week. Shifts begin around midnight and can end between 230 pm and 630 pm. Hours are different everyday and you are on call 24/7 with only one off day a week. You also only get one week of vacation a year and do not have any benefits.

Home Agent (Former Employee) – Carle Place, New York – October 31, 2014
Answering phones from customers via your home who wouldn't like that. Except management isn't capable of handling all issues as they would if worked in an office environment. If you are tech savvy and can diagnose your own computer issues and compatibility issues as well as keep up the customer service side of the business that's great! And this is the job for you! Expect employees to buy upgraded equipment on a routine basis or upgrade internet services when deemed necessary. At $9.00/hr its not possible.
working from home, customers are sweet, product is great
no support, pay rate, pay incentives not timely and not very organized
Florist (Current Employee) – Bay Ridge, New York – February 12, 2014
Working at 1-800 Flowers was a challenge. Before working there, i thought that working with flowers were easy but they are harder than you think. I wrapped flowers and water vases, which was a typical day at work. I learned the process of actually making flowers in which I thought had been easy. The manager pushed me to work but also offered food and asked do I need any breaks. The co-workers sometimes took advantage of me but I always kept calm and did not show attitude. I always came to work 10 minutes before I started working. The hardest part of the job was to wrap some of the presents. The most enjoyable parts of the job was to water the vases and making boxes.
Florist (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 18, 2012
I started work at 9am closed & cleaned up around 7-8:30 pm. I sat outside to sell the plants and flowers. I learned how to arrange small packs of flowers and how to handle and cut roses, how to wrap them in papers. I worked alone all day, the owner would come by at night to collect the money and would leave. There really wasn't a hard part of the job just that business was slow and i never got paid my full amount. The part that i enjoyed the most about the job was that it was fun talking and meeting new people.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Bogart, GA – December 17, 2012
Unload trucks, and move items from loading bay to shelves with forklifts. Or transport some items to different warehouses within the company or showrooms. Family owned company that really looked at employees as numbers. Very little advancement in the company because a lot of the owner's family members had all the management positions. The most enjoyable part of the company was the benefits. They have very great benefits. You can accrue Time off that rollover into the next year.
Working third shift is sometimes difficult, but the worst is when some people are allowed to sleep while others work their tail off. The management do not seem to care about the shifts other than day shift, so the abuse of time goes unnoticed. Otherwise, the job was good, I learned a lot of things working there. Job security is ok, but it seems to take forever to get to another shift. The shops is union so seniority rules. I worked there 5 years on third shift. The benefits of working for the union were excellent, such as good pay, cheap insurance and good retirement. Unfortunately the retirement went into the red and it was frozen.
Challenging every day work extreme safety conscience, experienced management, the hardest part of the job was night shift but got used to it after some time, I enjoyed very much having a team of engineers that learned and appreciated in depth knowledge of equipments component designs and overall process.
A faced past environment where I can use my skills and techniques
