Walter Knoll Florist is looking for a qualified, talented, and enthusiastic associate to join our floral design team and make consistently artistic designs with flowers. A “Florist” at Walter Knoll will need to be able to handle a wide variety of duties. These duties range from the building of the bouquets and arrangements (Designing), floral consultation (Customer Assistance and Data Entry), and Floral Display (This is encompasses all aspects of the retail experience, from service with a smile to understanding what the customer wants, to setting display areas and yes, even to cleaning as necessary). Florists are retailers who help clients by transforming flowers, plants, or artificial material into works of art, which capture and carry the sentiments of the sender. A florist in training is typically learning the trade for around two years under the supervision of a Master Designer. This trade is an art form that even after a lifetime of working in the industry new techniques and materials are learned and implemented.

(Full time is approximately 5 days/week ~40 Hours, Part Time is approximately 3 days/week ~ 32 hours) we do not work until the end of the shift, we work until the orders are filled.
