    Fun to work with chocolate & dip berries, you get to be somewhat creative, fun friendly staff, easy going environment, got to take home "unsellable" fruit.

    Cons

    Long temp hours, over 10 hours a day, standing for 10 hours with only a 30 minute lunch break.

    Pros

    I had a great manager/supervisor who hired and trained me for the customer service position. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    the proprietor of Edible Arrangements values currency more than individuals with a strong & dedicated work fabric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire & nurture employees for the long haul, not for a quick fix.

    Pros

    The creations you get to make. It's awesome to know that you are a part of someones day and they don't even know who you are.

    Cons

    My bosses were kind of crazy, but I'm sure they all aren't bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screen your store managers more, one of mine spoke like 5 words of english.

    The pay is better than other jobs, but they could care less about their employees.

    Pros

    Better pay than other companies. They don't pay you minimum wage.

    Cons

    No break. If your location gives you a break, consider yourself lucky. Management takes advantage of employees, including scheduling hours on end. My manager even asked if I could take the week of Valentine's Day and Mother's Day off so I could come in three hours before opening to prepare orders. The week. And I'm a full time college student!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the employees and their needs. Hire people who actually care about your workers.

    Pros

    Small amount of staff to manage, easy to navigate EA software, rewarding when speaking to customers and holiday bonuses.

    Cons

    Work every holiday without extra compensation, Completely underpaid and not recognized for exceeding sales goals. Most are franchised so there is no HR department or communication with Corporate or insurance with benefits.Raises are not given annually.
