Never hated anything more then walking into the office on time, and not being acknowledged for at least an hour or two until I was told how many stops I had if I had any at all. Never dreaded a job more in my life. Imagine the whole company getting blessed with residential deliveries while your stuck with all the businesses because they are “hard”, and the boss knows you can do it well.

Better management, and more florists to get the job done. More owner operators with large vans should be hired so that large orders and funeral sprays aren’t damaged when they’re put in the vechicle, ensuring the flowers are in the same condition when they left the warehouse. Most vechicles used are cars (smart cars, and jeeps). Other drivers laugh and say the flowers dropped in the car and all the water spilled out, and flowers ended up breaking, because they didn’t have enough space in their vechicle, flowers are squished.
Ensure funeral orders are done on time and are open when the delivery driver arrives.

Hire dispatchers to organize routes, not the florist printing out routes and dispatching in the middle of creating a flower arrangement.

Properly do inventory so that specific holiday pieces are preordered like chocolate covered strawberries on Valentine’s Day. Drivers had to wait an additional 2 hours for strawberries to arrive for valentine’s day orders.

You only really work about 3 hours total a day, yet you’ll be waiting for about 6 hours just to receive your flowers. Mind you drivers get paid for the amount of deliveries not hours they work.

There is no pace. Everything is extremely slow no rush only for the drivers. The florists take hours to complete the arrangements and the drivers have to wait until everything is done before they can leave. Mind you all business close at 5 pm so whatever stops you get can’t even be delivered and flowers just die and have to be remade the next day because of terrible planning.

Where do I begin? It’s stressful getting phone calls throughout the weekend at 7 am to come in because other drivers took off, then to get yelled at for not helping, and being punished for not coming in on your day off by being given a smaller amount of stops as punishment. It’s stressful waiting 4 hours for flowers to be made when I’m on time and not getting paid hourly for my time. It’s stressful having to pick up the slack for other drivers and never getting acknowledged. It’s also stressful to watch other drivers with smart cars leave with more stops then a person with a large vechicle. All the flowers are squished and the management can careless. Such a lack of care for flowers when the priority should be making the flowers gorgeous and have them delivered in perfect condition for the clients who ordered them.

Vacation? Haha. I never was allowed to even take off for my wisdom tooth extract appointment. My vechicle broke down for half a day and alsmost lost my job just for my car breaking down. Vacation... didn’t even bother asking because you can barely get a day off.
