The INTERNal Perspective of Merchandising Intern Emily Bahr

August 3, 2012

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.

It’s no surprise that the upbeat, family-run business is headed by Chris McCann, who is a fellow Marist fanatic and alumnus himself. As a Marketing Intern in the summer of 2011 in BloomNet, and this summer on the brand side as a Merchandising Intern, I quickly became part of the team with my own cubicle and responsibilities, making me feel like I am actually contributing to the company.

Every day I see how similar working here is to going to Marist; working alongside my friends in a warm environment, sharing laughs and stories. I am so grateful that Marist led me to such a wonderful opportunity.
