“When I heard first heard about the chance to intern at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, I immediately took action. As a rising senior at Marist College, I researched the company, learned about their mission and values and immediately knew that the environment would be one which I could excel in.
“As a Communications major (concentrating in PR) with a minor in Business Administration, I was nervous about working in Business Gift Sales (BGS). Yet my experience here thus far has been the exact opposite. Learning how to work with invoices, create marketing plans to expand our business relations has taught me more than I could have imagined. The atmosphere here is extremely supportive and everybody is always happy to help. I have never met a better group of people than here at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM.
“Each day I come to work and I enjoy myself. Between the people I work with, the nature of the work we do, and the lessons I learn each day, I am now confident that upon graduating from Marist I will take what I have learned and find success.
