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

    Pros

    You get major discounts and free food. You meet a lot of people that are regulars and it’s nice to know a face.

    Cons

    Unorganized, they aren’t fair in pay or in acknowledgement for achievements. Last minute stuff is a daily thing, it isn’t a place I would work again.

    Advice to Management

    Organization please, and try to make it a place you want to work. Right now it isn’t.

    Pros

    Great local owners! The owners and and managers all are real down to earth people who care about their employees and their product. They seem to love what they do and work hard to please customers. They offer flexibility of hours based on who you wok with. The owners/managers work hard to make the work environment a pleasant, cohesive hard working team.

    Cons

    The salary is highly dependent on your owners. Like any food service job the amount of business can fluctuate depending upon the season. There is a large learning curve to go up for basket making. The smaller ones are reasonable to learn in a few attempts but to successfully make a larger basket it takes several months to get to the place where they look presentable. Dry hands from hand washing all day. No set positions, everyone learns everything and is responsible for everything. This leaves room for some to slack and others to work extra hard to keep things running. It requires highly self motivated people who are willing to fill in and do whatever task need be done whether or not it is their favorite or their strong skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate overcharges the stores for all of their supplies, do not put out proper advertising and blame the owners for the lack of sales. Commercials outside of Facebook, of ACTUAL ARRANGEMENTS would be really nice. The marketing team needs to improve their strategy. The nexus program for the edible to go menu is not user friendly for certain items.

    Pros

    Super fun, fast paced job that requires great customer service skills. Your goal is to "WOW" people every day.

    Cons

    It all depends on your local owner. He or she is the person who will have the most impact on your day to day life.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking away the cute containers!

    Pros

    Working by yourself can be peaceful, putting arrangements together could be nice if they actually had good quality fruit to work with rather than feeling guilty about having to use bad strawberries.

    Cons

    You work by yourself with no help and working by yourself is overwhelming because you are responsible for everything. Poor quality to bad fruit, unhappy customers, rude co-worker and manager literally yelled at me

    Pros

    Nothing - this company seems to push people to their limits.

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid. Expected to work almost every weekend and at odd hours.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and stop treating everyone like they are robots.

    Pros

    Working here was interesting, you don't always have an opportunity to work with fruit. I liked the duties I performed and they weren't difficult at all

    Cons

    The owner was very money hungry. She would over work her workers during the holidays and wouldn't payout for overtime hours worked.
