Horrible Company to Work For
Floral Designer, Austin, TX - November 15, 2015
I worked at Freytag's for a little over ten months and couldn't believe that such a successful business treated their employees so poorly. Firstly, the hours are ridiculous and never are you told before you accept the position that a "full time employee" to them is a 50-60 hour work week. If you'd like to work a typical 40 hour work week, consider working part time for Freytag's because that's what they consider "part-time". Secondly, we work 10 hour days Mon-Fri and they offer you an hour off the clock a day...but you're not allowed to take it all at once, or between certain times, they don't really want you off the clock period when you're there. They encourage you to eat while you work and to never give your feet a rest. Last and most importantly, the management is nonexistent. "Management" will curse you out, tell you you're replaceable and never show any appreciation towards your hard work. There's no room for advancing in the company and they rarely give out raises. It's an extremely toxic environment to subject yourself to. I have never seen employees treated with such disrespect by "management". The sad thing is, is that they really have an amazing team. I enjoyed working with my coworkers each and everyday and they are the reason I wouldn't mind going to work everyday. There's so much talent and potential and it's heartbreaking to see it go unappreciated. The only pros to working at Freytag's is all the gorgeous flowers, because they really do have an amazing selection, and the people you'll work with.
