Summary

Prior call center experience preferred. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and have a high school diploma or GED to apply. Good typing, writing, spelling and math skills, with strong communication skills required.

Scheduling Requirement

The nature of the 1-800-flowers.com workload is dependent upon the number of customers that are placing orders. We typically have a steady flow of workload, however during peaks periods such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day our workload increases significantly. We refer to these periods as our "Gold Rush Periods." During Gold Rush Periods, we require Home Agent Specialists to work 8 – 10 hour shifts on gold days. Gold days are generally 2 – 4 leading up to the day of the holiday and 1 – 3 days following the holiday. Based on your availability, there is a possibility that you could work many more hours during the "Gold Rush Period."
