The coworkers were great, the computer system was easy to understand how to use, and I got to work with fruit all day! Plus if we made too many orders of something, we could take it home at the end of the day!! Great management but poor pay
Fruit Expert (Former Employee) – Chambersburg, PA – June 11, 2019
Loved working at Edible Arrangements. Started as delivery driver then moved to kitchen and arranging. One of a few jobs I've had where I actually didn't mind going to work. We could listen to music. Co-workers and supervisor where very pleasant people.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Lutherville-Timonium, MD – June 9, 2019
A typical day at work consisted of getting to the workplace at 7 am. Opening up the store (sometimes alone) and getting everything ready for the day,
At this job I learned how to work with a certain computer system, learned to make sales over the phone and in person, learned how to negotiate with customers and sometimes convince them to spend more money than intended.
The workplace culture was great, I worked with all of my best friends so I had a lot of fun working there.
The hardest part of the job was the long holiday hours and over-stressed holiday and busy shifts.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with my friends and my managers.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Windsor, CT, Avon, CT, & West Hartford, CT – June 7, 2019
Ask if it is a franchise. Franchisees do not give benefits to you even if you are full-time. Only way to recieve full benefits is to work for the corporation in Georgia USA. Also pay was way down for someone who went to college and has certifications in the industry. I was not satisfied there. Better off at a Mcdonalds.
Fruit Expert (Current Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – June 6, 2019
This is the first place I've worked at and actually enjoy the women I work with. They work around/ with my schedule. The owners of my store are terrible though. They hardly know anything about running a food business. They care more for the other two stores they own. Pay starts at $8.50 really hard to get a raise.
30 min. Lunch break, willing to work with school or other jon schedules, willing to train, great management
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bridgeport, CT – June 6, 2019
I was with three actual company for about 11 years. I enjoyed the fast pace in the am and then how itd slow down a little in the afternoon . the people i worked with were great and my bosses were very sweet there is just no advancing once you reach a certain pay there's no more raises. Great job for high school kids or to get thru college
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – June 4, 2019
I personally needed something temporary i put in many man hours to get paid very little. I did not appreciate that. The schedule was flexible. The boss gave unpaid time off when my brother passed in November of 2018. Didn't like how the work ethic was when i returned
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE/FOOD PREP (Former Employee) – Los Gatos, CA – June 3, 2019
Most of the people I went into the job with had quit after a few weeks. A new manager was sent in. He was new to the job, but had experience. We were low on people, so I had to work a lot of overtime even though I was supposed to work part-time. It was tiring and there was so much to do.
Designer & Customer Service (Former Employee) – Lansdale, PA – June 3, 2019
It was fun to make arrangements & smoothies. Around the holidays it got very busy, but on a typical day, the work was slow & steady. I would have stayed had I been paid more. The boss is awesome & is flexible with the schedule if you need to switch up work hours. Definitely recommend it for a high school or college student.
Fruit Expert (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – June 3, 2019
My manager (the owner of the Allentown and Bethlehem branches) was wonderful! She was caring of her employees, hands-on involved, and took great care in training and working with us. It's a great place to work, especially for college students or older ladies, or just someone looking for an enjoyable job.
Manager (Former Employee) – Fairview, TX – June 1, 2019
A typical day at work was easy. We had great managment that train us properly and trusted us to do what we thought was best for the customer. The most enjoyable part of the job was delivering an arrangement and seeing the happy faces of the recipients.
Driver/Delivery (Former Employee) – Berkeley, CA – June 1, 2019
I enjoyed working at edible arrangements because I loved to see the finish of the bouquets. The facts that the employees are able to create all these shapes and sizes with fruits was beautiful and quite fun to watch. Customers usually get them for their loved ones to show appreciation so it was a plus as a driver to see the receivers reaction to getting the delivery.
