Then you might be interested in a work-from-home job.
We found one that starts next month and doesn’t require any particular experience or education. All you need is a functional home office and an ability to provide great customer service.
Better yet, you get to help spread joy to mothers around the country!
You’ll be working as a “Seasonal Work at Home Consumer Direct Associate” with Teleflora, a national broker for local florists.

How You Can Make Money Selling Flowers
Mother’s Day is huge for floral sales, and Teleflora needs work-from-home customer service representatives across the U.S. to help them keep up with demand.
The position isn’t necessarily just seasonal, though; there’s “potential for long-term or permanent employment for our highest performers,” according to Teleflora’s careers page.
So, work hard, and you could end up with a permanent work-from-home job!
Your duties will include “interacting with customers to place new orders” and “working behind the scenes to ensure that order is delivered successfully.”
You’ll need to have “dependability, good typing and computer navigation skills, excellent customer service and active listening skills; and the ability to learn new computer programs quickly.”
If hired, you’ll work 20-40 hours per week.
“Agents should all be prepared to work on Mother’s Day if needed,” Pam Henrion, Director of Customer Experience at Teleflora, told me in an email. “Not all will work, and we most certainly won’t work all day.”
During training, you’ll be paid your state’s minimum wage, at least $7.25 per hour. Then, you’ll earn $8 per hour (or more, if your state’s minimum is higher).
Training for Mother’s Day positions starts in late April and early May, so get your application in soon if you want to be considered!
