Our second Merchandising Intern, Emily Bahr, shares her observations from interning at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM for the second consecutive summer. Here’s Emily’s story in her own words:
“I was certain that I would never feel such a strong sense of community and family as I had felt during my freshman year at Marist College, where the student body and faculty truly care about students’ future and well-being. Little did I know that feeling would surface again during my first year interning at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM in 2011. Beyond the feeling of comfort at the company, I didn’t think I would find anywhere in the business world that I’d feel as passionate about. But I did.
