TELEFLORA INCREASES WORK-AT-HOME POSITIONS FOR MOTHER'S DAY
500+ Additional Work From Home Positions will help Deliver Exceptional Service to Teleflora Customers
LOS ANGELES (March 13, 2012) - With Mother's Day just around the corner, children young and old will come together to celebrate that special woman in their lives who has always been there for them.á Teleflora, the world’s leading flower delivery service has announced that it will be filling 500+ seasonal work-at-home Consumer Sales Professional positions due to anticipated holiday order growth. Seasonal work-at-home agents for Teleflora will help customers choose and order the perfect flower arrangements to celebrate not only Mother's Day, Sunday May 12, but other milestones such as birthdays or anniversaries.
"As Teleflora's business continues to grow, our work-from-home program allows us to expand with it while at the same time reducing our dependence on outsourced call centers in the U.S. and abroad," said Danielle Ezell, Vice President, Administration Teleflora. "Bringing on work-at-home agents gives employees the flexibility to discover the perfect work/life balance. It also allows us the opportunity to attract talent from all parts of the country and the capability to handle calls regardless of the time zone. Additionally, it reduces overhead by eliminating the need for office space."
The work-at-home phenomenon is rapidly growing as both employees and employers alike continue to discover the many advantages of telecommuting. Employees who work from home face fewer distractions than their typical office counterparts, and they eliminate some of the less desirable facets of office life such as long commutes and dress codes. Many employees find that working from home also allows for an easier balance of work and family time. Agents can enjoy the flexibility Teleflora offers to pick a work schedule that best fits their personal and family needs.
Applications for the Consumer Sales Professional positions are currently being accepted through May 3. The company is offering a $250 bonus for new and returning agents that finish training and work throughout the holiday period.á Interested applicants can find more information by going to teleflora.com and searching the careers section or by clicking Teleflora work-at-home positions. á
