1-800-Flowers is hiring 10,000 seasonal employees across its brands.

1-800-Flowers is on a holiday hiring blitz.

The online gifting company said it has started hiring for more than 10,000 employees nationwide — in line with last year — for seasonal positions across its brands as it ramps up to meet increased online demand during the upcoming holiday season. In addition to its namesake brand, 1-800-Flowers’ banners include Harry & David, The Popcorn Factory, Cheryl’s Cookies and more.

The company said it is hiring for both full- and part-time positions across high-volume areas such as production, gift assembly, distribution and operational support. Remote contact center positions also are available.

The majority of seasonal roles are being offered in Illinois, Ohio and Oregon, including some work-from-home positions. Year-round positions are also available and seasonal associates may be considered for permanent roles once the holiday period concludes, the company said.

"We look forward to welcoming our many seasonal associates each year as they play an integral role in helping us deliver millions of holiday smiles," said Steve Lightman, group president, gourmet foods and gift baskets, 1-800-Flowers.com "Our seasonal team members benefit from competitive wages, flexible schedules, product giveaways, raffles, a generous employee discount applicable across our family of brands, and more. With a robust incentive program and our commitment to fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace, we're providing a welcoming, safe, and fun environment where all our team members feel respected, valued, and empowered."
