    This is a great place to start a career. I've leaned so much and the people that work there are awesome. Culture is a lot better than it use to.

    Not your work and life balance type of place. You will work your butt off at this place and will learn a lot.

    I have been working at Edible Arrangements

    Pros

    I love the people that I work with in all the departments. The Company having grown as quickly as it has, has had some bumps along the way but the people I work with are working hard to improve in all areas and I have seen many great people join the team that will make it happen. Benefits are competitive

    Cons

    Flex time is still an issue with regards to the work-life balance, but we have seen some positive changes in the leadership in the last few years that will continue to lead to improvements and hopefully flex-time being one of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We consist of many employees with families and/or long commutes. Flex-time would only enhance the work-life balance culture we are striving for. It will increase productivity and overall moral a win-win situation and will make "us" a more desirable employer for additional talent as the company and needs grow.

    I worked at Edible Arrangements part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    great flexibility in day to day schedule and opportunity to perform several different tasks throughout the week. Free food is always nice too.

    Cons

    Holiday season can lead to certain days having 12 hour+ shifts and driving in dangerous weather is unavoidable if deliveries are to be made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave some incentive to allow employees to work longer hours instead of just shoving hours down their throat when they are understaffed or overwhelmed.

    Lower Pay, High Customer Traffic, Difficult to Remember All Arrangements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Edible Arrangements part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Part time available, can eat unsellable fruit.

    Cons

    Low pay. Heavy, sticky work. If you are a driver, you will work hard. You will drive up to 250 miles daily, then be told to empty garbage and clean up the floors. Also, if an order is placed at 5 minutes before closing, you will be required to deliver it. You will also be called an hour before your shift to inform you to come in later, thereby losing paid time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Using a professional approach with employees would go far. Acting like a child and talking about smoking illegal substances reflect poorly on the company. Cutting employee hours, 1 hour before shift start is unprofessional. Designers should be cleaning up their own mess such as fruit on the floor, garbage and doing the dishes they create. Adult people clean up their own mess.
