“New challenges every day in the floral industry. Great to be on an experienced and talented team to take on these challenges.”- Mark Young
“I am one lucky lady. I have had a passion for flowers my entire life and have the privilege of being surrounded by them each and every day here at Dos Gringos and I get to work with a pretty talented team. As the DG HR Manger, or “Team Mom”, as I am often called, I get to engage with all departments and help people grow and BLOOM while making sure both the company and our teammates are safe, happy, and taken care of!”- Delia Mercado.
“My 12 years as part of the Dos Gringos team has been extremely rewarding. I particularly enjoy the daily interaction with the public who find our company and facility fascinating. Every day presents exciting challenges which our entire team continues to overcome as we serve our international client base. Our energetic leader provides an enthusiastic role model, ready to take charge while moving the business forward. It is a pleasure to be part of the team.”- Joan Saunders“I came to DG to help for a week to put binders together for a show, almost 11 years later I am still here with my current role as Production Manager. In my role I get to work with our production team and other departments in the Company. There are challenges that come with my job, but I have great teammates to help me out. I oversee the production of quality bouquets, when we have happy customers then I know we did a good job as a team.” - Raul “aka” Blue Mesa“I really appreciate the ability to work closely with my team and all departments of the company. They energize me and make me better at what I do. ” - Gabe Gill“What I like best about DG is that I work for a company with integrity.” - Jenny Butterfass
