Designer/customer service in Mississauga, Brantford
on 25 September 2021
Busy store but loved itActually worked at a couple of Forest of Flowers stores because I moved. Both stores were great to work in. It's a flower shop, it's busy. If you get that, then you will do great.Owners at both stores were helpful and I really learned a lot. Started out processing flowers and customer service. When I left, I was doing wedding flowers and funeral flowers.Sad that I had to leave, got too busy with kids (twins). Would love to go back when the kids are a bit older.

Productive, creative fun place to workA great place to branch into floral design if that is a trade youre wanting to go into. They offer training and they are a busy shop so you get lots of experience. The floral industry gets busy 5 times a year and be prepared to go into overtime and some very long days.

Wonderful enviroment to grow sales techniques.Good fast-paced environment but management is never around so you are essentially playing manager and sales associate at times for only minimum wage and disrespect.

Bad experienceI can see how other locations in the franchise would be a great place to work judging from what I have learnt about the franchise overall, but unfortunately I don’t have much good to say about my experience working at the Burlington location. The owners/managers seemed incapable of training me as there seemed to be no unity between any of the senior staff. They all trained me in different ways (some of which even I knew made no sense and were sloppy, and lots of corner cuts just to get the job done as quick as possible) and this was incredibly confusing to me considering they're a franchise and are soposed to have a routine way of operating to be on par with other stores as well. Because of all the confusion that seemed to be occurring, it was near impossible to understand or advance the skills I was to be learning. To top it all off, there is so much pressure being put on newbie employees to pick up the pace and hurry up, even after only training for less then 2 weeks, which I could never really understand because the store never even seemed to be busy, with only 1 or 2 customers coming in during most of my shifts. I was also told I had lasted longer than most after only being employed for about a month, and should have quit as soon as I heard that because from this point on the owner/managers began being increasingly rude. Overall, I enjoyed the atmosphere but this particular franchise is operated by people who do not care about how they treat they're employees, and probably need to all be retrained or fired themselves if the franchise heads actually witnessed the way they are currently operating/treating employees as well as customers.
