With Mother’s Day right around the corner, now may be a good time to watch for openings at these companies. Although the positions are generally temporary, it can be a fun way to break out of your usual working routine and most successful agents are asked to return for future events.

My Experience as a Season Floral Agent
Again, these are not usually reliable work at home companies for year-round income. But they do make for a fun few weeks a few times a year to make some easy money. Most people find the work is rewarding. I personally worked for ProFlowers a few seasons and enjoyed being a part of other’s expressing their love. I especially enjoyed helping them come up with something to say on the cards that are delivered with the flowers. Most people are in great moods when placing orders, but I did deal with frustrated callers who didn’t understand the promotions, were having website difficulties or if deliveries were not made on time. Thankfully I was equipped with the right tools and authority to make sure every one was taken care of and satisfied.
