Staff Profile: Flo

Written by: Jess Cooling and Flo | Saturday 11th August 2018

Flo tells us about her experiences working at Coolings Green & Pleasant as part of the Shop team. Her time in the Nature Trail Ticket Office is particularly special – find out more about Flo in her Staff Profile here!

What is your Job Role?

I am a Garden Centre Assistant, working on the shop floor looking after customers and stock, and in the Nature Trail Ticket Office.

What are your favourite things about what you do?

I love working in the Nature Trail Ticket Office and getting to interact with all the customers – I especially enjoy talking to the excited children!

How long have you been working at CG&P?

I’ve been “on the books” for around 5 years, mostly working part-time when I’m back from University.

What is a typical day like for you?

Most days I will spend a lot of time on the shop floor, sometimes unloading deliveries to price and display the new stock. At some point, I’ll cover the Nature Trail Ticket Office that we share with Willows, often around midday or in the afternoon.

Which part of the site is your favourite?

Definitely the Nature Trail. Whether summer or winter, it’s always gorgeous down there!

Where do you think customers should look more?

Customers should look more at our jewellery section situated by the front tills. Because it’s close to the exit, a lot of people miss it, but there are some really nice pieces.

What has been your favourite experience working with us so far?

Last year, I got to be an elf at Christmas in the Grotto with Santa! The children’s excitement and wonder was extremely contagious and so fulfilling!

Which is your favourite product we sell at the moment?

The Woodstock Chimes are so lovely – they always remind me of spending summery days in the garden when I was a child!
