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

Working for edible arrangements is a fun job! I loved my bosses and co workers. We listened to music and joked around and talked. They care about you and what you had going on in your personal life. I dipped fresh fruit into chocolate. Making sure the product was the best for every costomer. We have excellent costomer service, and care what their needs are. The fruit was prepared fresh daily to ensure the best quality. Great place to work.

I've learned and gained more patience. Greeting customers as walk-ins over the phone was a must always smiling on my end made sure customers were satisfied with what they've ordered. Management was excellent i say . I was very comfortable in the position i was in.
everything about the job is easy and laid back. except the management is not good at all. the owner does not know how to run a business. she doesnt ever pay us on time. doesnt follow food safety steps as you are suppose to. she is never around or never answers her phone for any kind of answers that we may need. its a real headache working for her.
Customer Service / fruit expert (Former Employee) – Dartmouth, MA – June 15, 2019
Just know every single holiday for the whole week you’ll be working in a small kitchen with about 10-15 other people who are just temps because their to cheap to hire regular staff which is about 13 people between 2 stores including managers. EVERYONE works alone besides for about 2 hours in the day where someone will come do the easy work and peels out on normal days. So while your taking orders from the phone plus the computer you’ll have walk ins as well. It seems like a pleasant job but it’s really not. I thought It’d be a nice place for me as I am very creative and enjoy customer service but this ompany takes advantage of all their employees pays min wages even though Dartmouth makes you relocate to Fall River at least once a week. They’ll say schedule will be given a week in advance... Everyone receives schedule Friday in a group text to come in for Sunday or Monday which is not even 48hrs notice and to top it all off because of this issue the “owners” will text throughout the week changing shifts AGAIN. People have life’s, children and they really just do not care not one bit. My grandmother died and they STILL wanted me to go in the day of her wake. Also they’ll put you down for not doing something right but then go right behind you and do the same if not worse. Last but not least there’s a person who does not wear gloves most of the time they’re there “voluntarily” for holidays and is extremely rude but because this person is family it doesn’t matter what this person does or says. If your willing to be treated poorly and for penny’s then go for it.
You work alone unless holiday week
You just another number to them, min wage, relocate

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.

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

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
