Finance Manager (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – January 30, 2019
Management has no direction. They are concerned about taking care of themselves and bringing on the "Good Old Boys". The good employees leave and the bad employees stay because they have protection by senior management. There always are the same position vacancies.
A week of training, mostly observing instructor and minimal hands on. Most of us felt poorly prepared to take calls, and we were. They focus on order taking, but most people order online and call only if there's a problem or discounts not given.
Different ways to answer the phone created confusion, both with employees, customers, and florists. If you need a job, go for it,if you're shopping for one go elsewhere. $11.50/hr is cheap.
Support roles here are dead ends. If you want a career go somewhere else.
MTAC Support (Current Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – November 7, 2018
All day i am taking calls to fix the point of sale systems, It has become very stressful due to the fact the tech is ageing and managment refuses to bring any new people.
Good health insurance, friendly people, Cheap vending machine food, We get the left overs from management when they have a party, Management understands morale is very low and tries to shield us from management
MTAC is run very badly, it has become burnout environment and sadly many talented people have left, Managers dont get morale up and dont to stand up to the director at mtac, HR is very close knit and recruiters only recruit from the outside., HR makes it mandatory to post only good reviews on glassdorr and linkedin
CUSTOMER SERVICE REP (Former Employee) – Centerbrook, CT – November 3, 2018
It was difficult as someone who needs frequent restroom visits, and the facilities are super limited. There were some really difficult aspects, such as no paper allowed at your cubicle, and the location of that changed daily. However, in fairness, they are great about suppling coffee and water. Often during the holiday periods there are snacks to share in the breakroom. They did their best to make dealing with the callers less complicated. I did like that the time passed very quickly most of the time.
Great entry level call center job, low pay, lots of OT if wanted.
Technical Support Representative/Trainer (Former Employee) – Centerbrook, CT – October 25, 2018
This job is fine for anyone who understands the call center model. OT is optional, but usually readily available. I personally had issues with my second shift manager who was just a terrible human being and spewed hateful rhetoric for anyone who would listen. Overall, not counting her, not a bad place.
Lots of free food and parties for holidays
Pay is minimun wage upon hiring from agencies that usually pay more. Some managers need to go.

Floral Sales Supervisor / Lead Designer (Former Employee) – New Windsor, NY – July 26, 2018
Probably the most fulfilling job I've worked throughout my career in management and supervision. Throughout donation arrangements given to Funerals, this company truly gives back in a way that's creative and respectful.
Breaks as needed, unlimited creativity, amazing co-workers
Fresh Flower Sales (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – July 19, 2018
New direction company is taking will remove most florist and my opportunity of continued success . Too many hands in the process of shipping product to florist/members causing many delays on perishable product.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Centerbrook, CT – June 29, 2018
If you are looking for customer support then this would not be the job, as it was mainly rating a person's ability to sell merchandise. I am not a sales woman so this was not for me and because I didn't meet the percentage required, I was let go.
I loved to work at FTD. The hours were as flexible as you want them, the people are amazing. We would get free lunches on days that were busy, especially the holiday seasons. The pay was amazing, and everyone was just so friendly.
Free lunch/dinner during different seasons, good pay, great environment, own cubicle.
