Our “5 Questions With” blog segment gives you the inside scoop on the inner workings of Edible Arrangements® by bringing you an exclusive look at the work lives of some EA corporate employees. In honor of Administrative Professionals Week, we talked to our Office Clerk, Suzanne Anderson, to find out what it’s like to be involved in nearly all the happenings at our corporate headquarters.
1) What are you working on right now (if you can tell us)?
I’ve recently switched roles from Receptionist to Office Clerk, and in my new role I am having an absolute blast! Learning new and different tasks in a total effort to support different departments in the building is always a pleasure. This week, I’ve done everything from filing reports to preparing fresh chocolate dipped fruit for meetings! The diverse nature of my new role is what makes it exciting each and every day!
2) What’s the SWEETEST aspect about being an Administrative Professional?
I enjoy the variety within the job. Things are constantly changing and there’s always something new to learn about the company. The fast pace makes the days fly by, and it’s fun too!
3) What’s your favorite kind of chocolate dipped fruit? Toppings?
The dipped bananas are my favorite! My second favorite would be the Cinnamon Chocolate Apple Wedges®. I could eat both at any time of day.
4) Tell us something you’ve learned while working for Edible Arrangements®?
I’ve learned that hard work truly does come with great rewards. Staying focused on tasks and getting them done leaves you with such an incredible feeling of accomplishment.
5) What’s the best part about working for a company like Edible Arrangements®?
Having worked for the company for just over 7 years, I’ve met so many amazing people. Between the staff at corporate, the franchise partners and vendors, everyone is very dedicated to helping the company grow. It has been such a wonderful experience getting to know so many people throughout the years.
