Hello! Spring is here, Prom season is in full force, Mother’s Day is just around the corner–and, we are hiring! We’re looking for a couple great people to add to our amazing team. Of course we prefer experience in the floral industry–but, we are very willing to hire someone without experience too. In fact, some of our best employees walked in with no experience–we thought they’d be a good fit, and they were super eager to learn it all, so they were hired! Working at a flower shop is quite the mix of creativity, customer service, and, of course, everyday [boring] tasks, too. (Aren’t all jobs, though?)
Anyway, here is a quick description of what we’re looking for…
-25-35 hours per week, daytime hours. (We close at 6 during the week, 5 on Saturday. We are closed on Sunday.)
-Great listening skills, focused, enjoys working with others and customers.
-Able to work through peak times and holidays. Some Saturday’s will be required.
-Good with customers, quick learner, perceptive.
-You will be on your feet all day and do minor lifting and moving of flowers buckets, trash, larger plants.
-Able to prioritize work with good time management skills.
-Plant and fresh flower rotation.
-Customer service and sales floor maintenance.
-Support design staff, clean and process flowers.
-Keep stocked on supplies.
-Help customers to find the right flowers, colors and arrangement, or plant for their need.
-Potential for designer work if you’re interested, willing to learn, and excited to create.
-Eventually help with wedding consultation and planning.
-Email your resume to Dawn@MainFloral.net or call 763.421.7411 (and ask for Dawn) if you have questions before applying.
Floral Shop and/or Customer Service experience preferred, but NOT required. If you’re ready to learn, and we think you’re the right fit for this position, you’re the PERFECT candidate for this job.
We expect to train for our shops quality of service, product and policy.
We are looking to fill these positions ASAP, so hurry and apply!
OH! P.S. Here’s a little bit about us, in case you’re curious:
-We’ve been in business here, in Anoka, for a over 25 years now.
-We’re owned by a brother/sister duo and have a small, dedicated, and super talented staff. (It’s actually more like a family around this place.)
-We recently moved into a brand, new, location! We used to be right on Main Street–now, we’re just off Main Street. (We’re in the building that used to be the co-op building–right across from Two Scoops Ice Cream Shop.) We share the space with Sweet River Candy Company and American Bistro. We’re a flower shop/candy shop/cafe, basically. It’s an energetic place to be, that always seems to have something going on! (And, the coffee’s always fresh. 🙂 )
-We are closed on Sunday, and major holidays. (Plus, we close early, most days, before the major holiday–we don’t want to be here either on those days. 😉 ) We’re only open regular, business, hours; so, you won’t be here past closing, most of the time. (Sometimes customers come in late; so, we stay. Also, around Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day–we stay late. It’s just SO busy.)
-We really love what we do; but, we also love your suggestions, and we welcome them. We value creativity around here highly. Working with us isn’t like you’re working FOR someone–it’s more like you’re working WITH someone.
Anyway…that’s just a little about us. If you’re looking to find a job that feels good to you–or, if you’re looking to switch gears completely, send us over your resume–we’d love to meet you. If you feel like you’d fit in great here–even if you feel like you’re lacking the experience–we still want to meet you. If we feel like you’d be a good fit for the shop–we’ll gladly train you!
