Florist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Florist?

Florist in Clemson:
"Queen of Floral."
Pros: I love the small town college atmosphere, friendliness and family. I love college football and the Clemson Tigers, 2016 National Champions. It is great to be able to drive down a two lane road and get coffee, stop at the post office, get gas, go to the library and the grocery store. Having the students here is exciting. I love it.
Cons: I would love to see a movie theater here, but the town of Clemson is great. I can't think of anything I don't like.

Florist in Circleville:
"I love it."
Pros: Working with flowers and customer service, creating and helping, wedding work.
Cons: Newer shop so not very busy days, not a lot of designers work here and often alone doing all the work for a dollar above the unskilled employees.

Florist in Scottsdale:
"Bridezillas."
Pros: Working with plants on a daily basis.
Cons: Constant stress from difficult Brides and their families during weddings. College didn't prepare me enough for the job and I needed retraining from the company I worked with. I was fired because of lack of design experience.

Florist in Columbia:
Practice makes perfect. Love what you do.
