Great and fun place to work
Senior Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Thornlie, WAJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Staff, Manager
It was always a fun place to work. I am still friends with 90% of the staff that worked there when I was there. I talk to all of them through Facebook. The management was very flexible and understanding. I got my most recent job through a customer from this workplace.

Comfortable workplace-challenging and fast paced
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Coburg, VICJune 17, 2015
Pros: great rewards and discounts
Cons: limited hours
My experience with Bakers Delight was enjoyable and rewarding.
I worked alongside friendly and helpful sales assistants, as well as hard working bakers who were happy assisting at the checkout if need be. I learned to manage myself under pressure- large waves of customers can be expected at Bakers Delight-and ensuring that each and every customer is served and satisfied before walking out the door.

I found upselling products the most difficult part of this job-as customers can easily become hassled and annoyed by the offerings.

A healthy work balance for a student-though pay was at the very minimum and hours limited.
Overall- a great workplace to learn how to IMPRESS your customers.

Work Experience (Former Employee), ParabanksMay 22, 2015
Pros: Good hours, friendly environment.

crew member (Former Employee), Perth, WAApril 24, 2015
Pros: get to take bread at end of day
Cons: workers talked to much- gossiped
the other workers worked well as a cohesive team, the workers all knew one another, the community of workers was tight. if somebody was unable to work, others would gladly take the shift.

Working at oven
Baker (Former Employee), Sydney, NSWFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: free drinks
Cons: 8-10 hours
While working at night is always very harder than working at day time. I find it very different. Sometimes you fall into sleep while working. You have to work at 250-300 degree temperature. So i have to be careful all the time to be safe.

Productive fun team with targets to work towards
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Melbourne Eastern Suburbs, VICJanuary 15, 2015
I worked on the register selling different types of bread, I had a wide range of product knowledge and used good customer service skills. I enjoyed seeing regular customers and catching up with them. I was a 'shift manager' training the new people, filled forms about balancing the tills, stocked the shelves and fridge, and i also closed u pthe shop at the end of the night. I learnt how to deal with people while I was in a senior position. The management changed halfway through my time working there, a young couple started and i got along really well with them and the rest of the staff. The hardest part of the job was when the customers complained about the prices or the way the bread was cooked and us sale assistants van not do anything about it. The most enjoyable was the regular customers and friendly team members at Bakers Delight.

Not enough experince
Customer Service (Former Employee), Park Center BunburyDecember 28, 2014
Pros: free food when your on the closing shift
Cons: long hours and super fast pace and trying to learn the cash register my self.
Dealing with customers and cleaning out the shelf and getting ready for the next day.

What i learned is not everything is fair in work.

Didnt have a manager around much.

Trying to learn by my self was the most hardest part of the job.

The most enjoyable part about the job was cleaning up after the shift.

Bakers Assistant (Former Employee), Sydney, NSWNovember 5, 2014
Pros: able to work whilst at school
I was unable to work for Bakers Delight for more than 2 months due to the fact that they were hiring an apprentice to do my tasks as part of a rearrangement of staff.

I learnt to make products and assisted the bakers wherever needed.

Great first job
Retail Assistant (Former Employee), Penrith, NSWNovember 4, 2014
Pros: obtaining a cert 2 in retail operations
A typical day at work was front of house customer service and cleaning of the shop once closed.
I learnt a lot from this job, I was only working there for 2 months and they offered me a Certificate 2 in Retail Operations so I learnt a lot about OH&S and customer service. I completed that certificate early as I really enjoyed doing it.
I didn't find this job hard at all. I was excited to be working as it was my first job after leaving school.
