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.

Pros: understanding management
Cons: limited hours
Bakers Delight was my first job, and I have remained here as I advanced, and finally graduated High School as well as begun my time at University. It is a good starting place for employment and many important and fundamental skills were taught here, that I will continue to carry through to every work experience I have in my life.

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.

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.

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.

sales and customer service (Former Employee), Sydney, NSWOctober 12, 2014
My co-workers were friendly from the start and supported me throughout my time working for bakers delight while the management always informed on new promotions or events as well as providing me with training that would in the future help me deal with issues that arose during my shifts. The most enjoyable part on the job was the people that worked there, they were welcoming and always willing to help. The hardest part of the job would be the early morning shifts. Throughout my time working in Bakers Delight i was taught how to use the cash register, deal with customers, calculate stock and overall communicate with the customers.

Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Melbourne, VICJune 3, 2014
Pros: free bakery goods
Cons: working at different stores
Bakers delight is a very popular bakery with multiple stores around Melbourne, Australia. I believe that being a sales assistant at Bakers delight was a great learning experience as I was exposed to an environment where I had to adjust to customer needs and also the needs of my fellow employees.This is where I learned my customer service skills and how to deal with different kinds of situations during the course of a day.
I have always been a well organised person therefore being on time or getting the requirements of my job done wasn't hard for me.
During night evening shifts, once the day had finished all employees had to clean the whole store including shelves, the floor and the emptying the bins. This was due to hygienic reasons as we were dealing with freshly baked items. I found this to be the hardest part as it required a lot of lifting.
Other than that, I enjoyed communicating with different customers and received great satisfaction once customers left the store with a smile on their face as I knew that I had done a good job. Additionally, I enjoyed helping my team mates when they needed assistance.

Good fair workplace
Customer Service (Former Employee), Hampton, VICMay 14, 2014
Pros: alternating campaigns, free bread, kind manager
Cons: busy workplace
Bakers Delight was a really great first job! I was hired just after turning fifteen and my manager was very kind to me.

A typical morning shift would include packaging bread, bringing bread to the front of the store, merchandising, entering production on the register, serving customers, sweeping the floor, washing wires and mopping the floor.

An evening shift entailed serving customers, mopping floors, counting wastage, entering wastage on the register, assisting the bread collectors, sweeping the slicer, cleaning the counters and throwing out the rubbish.

My co-workers were mostly friendly and we completed Relay for Life together. There was also a Christmas party at AMF.

The hardest part of the job was learning how to operate the cash register and fix errors on it.

The most enjoyable part was recieving free bread and packaging food. It was also exciting when a new campaign arrived.
