Sales assistant (Former Employee), Melbourne, Vic. – June 27, 2015
Pros: Regular customers, great staff.
Cons: Hours can drag during off-speak times.
Working at bakers delight was enjoyable. The girls I worked with were helpful from day one, and by the end of it, I had become friends with them. It was an overall easy job and offered great experience, in terms of customer service, food-handling, etc.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Coburg, VIC – June 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.

I was employed as a casual sales assistant so I worked miscellaneous shifts. I did however work quite a lot of hours, up to 38 hours a week. My co-workers and managers were very respectful and communicated well.

Baker (Former Employee), Sydney, NSW – February 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.
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.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee), Rockingham, Western Australia – January 13, 2015
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.
Retail Assistant (Former Employee), Penrith, NSW – November 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, NSW – October 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.
