Hello! We are glad you’re back at the blog today. 🙂 We’ll be back with another plant care blog next time; but today, we’re dropping in to let you know that we’re hiring again! As our summer help has left to go back to school, and schedules switch around with our other employees–we find ourselves needing another Florist. Anoka is such a great place to work all year round–but, coming into the Halloween Capital of the World, right before Halloween, is super fun!
If you’re a Florist looking to change where you work, or you’re a motivated person who is excited to learn a new craft–we’d love to talk to you! We expect to train to our level of quality, and we don’t require a background in the floral industry–we just require you to be ready to learn, and motivated to grow your skill set.
Read below to see exactly what we’re looking for. Give us a call with any questions, 763.421.7411; or, email Dawn: email@example.com
Here’s a bit more of what we’re looking for:
We expect to train for our shops quality of service, product and policy.
-25-35 hours per week, daytime hours.
-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.
-Eventually help with wedding consultation and planning.
-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!
