Okay job for younger people, got worse as I got older
Sales Staff (Former Employee) – Mount Eliza VIC – 26 February 2018
A typical day was very repetitive. Rude customers, very underpaid, horrible management and boss, making us do out of work homework unpaid. the most enjoyable thing about the job was the people i made friends with. With a new change of management it became very unorganised and the workers became annoyed and confused. workers had been pushed to their limit for a part time job in a bad way and due to this 4 of my co workers had left in my 2 years there.
I have worked at Bakers Delight for nearly 5 years, and i am happy to say that i look forward to working in such a fun and friendly workplace. Great customers and even better staff. Typical day at work is serving customers and slicing bread, working in such a comfortable environment makes it easier to interact with customers and enjoy the day. Very fair and understanding management, always wanting the best for there staff.

I worked at the bakery for 4 years and got consistent shifts which worked with my availability. All of bakers delight are owned individually however being in a franchise they all followed the same rules which overall made the work experience good.
a typical day at work was pretty good, slicing bread for customers, providing good customer service and always having a positive attitude toward customers. The pay is not great, they do tend to underpay employees and the managers were not too pleasant to deal with.

The job was hard on the body with all the strain of lifting heavy things as a baker,but the coworkers were good. The pay wasnt that good to live off. So over all it was hard work and straining the body for not much money out come.
Team Leader/Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Mill Park VIC – 5 February 2018
Management did not care about staff, often showcased favouritism which contributed to resentment and poor morale within the workplace. Management did not see fit to tell staff that the store was closing until it was already closed, leaving loyal staff members unexpectedly without jobs.
My first job working in sales and I learnt so much... I learnt about merchandising, upselling, opening the store and setting it up, closing and working with junior staff.. Banking, floats and even counting change back something I had never had to learn in childcare. I enjoyed talking to customers and making relationships with regular customers.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Auckland City, Auckland – 17 December 2017
I would often get shuffled around and called on with short notice, I often felt pressured to take shifts that I didn't necessarily want to take. My manager had this store as his first business endeavour and it showed, the bakery would rarely make its targets.
We were also made to wear Santa hats during the summer, along with the heat from the sun the heat from the ovens was at times unbearable.
Baker (Former Employee) – Point Cook VIC – 12 December 2017
Work at bakers delight is a good way to spend a morning as a team member as a baker it was easy to work in production or on the ovens I would always be interested in more work in a baker delight store. the hardest part is getting up early mornings.
i have learned all about customer service and have gained heaps of experience in handling money. Good workplace culture. The hardest part of the job would be merchandising. The environment is the best part of the job.

It's a great first job. Its easy, but teaches you responsibility along with team work, communication, and food safety skills. It's also good that it's very hands on and you get to know all aspects of how the store runs.
I really enjoyed working at Bakers Delight although it was a short-lived experience. Both managers were really helpful and positive people and I got along with them both, and they taught me some great skills such as cleaning and working with cash registers. I was really frustrated and upset to leave because it really wasn't something I wanted to do, however I did not really have a choice as my transport options were scarce and my school work was being effected.
really helpful staff, everyone positive and outgoing, was able to take bread home
really difficult to get to, began to clash with my school work
