Intern Work Perks
Our internship program is also seeded with networking events to help each student get well acquainted with fellow interns and employees. Weekly "Lunch & Learn" meetings allow for interns to hear about different areas of the company from senior leaders, including conversations with Executive Chairman Jim McCann and CEO Chris McCann. Partaking in philanthropic initiatives such as volunteering at Smile Farms, a non-profit organization creating opportunities and jobs for disabled adults at local farms, helps interns have a good time while doing good. A competitive team project with fellow interns will allow each student to present innovative ideas to top executives, with a grand prize awarded to the winners! Fun off-site activities are also common, where lasting friendships bloom. We value our interns so much that many have gone on to work at 1-800-Flowers.com full-time.
