Apprentice Baker (Former Employee), Perth, WAJuly 22, 2014
Great Job but unstable within management.
Having been a young apprentice I was left several times with no trades person on site (in store) to lead the team in delivery goods for the morning. In which I worked myself in over taking and leading before the Apprenticeship Board took over

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 – more... 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. – less

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 – more... 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. – less

This job wasn't flexible for casual employee's
Counter Service (Former Employee), Lismore, NSWJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: shifts were usually short and the amount of labor involved was minimal
Cons: it was hard to make up enough shifts to get a decent wage and you didn't get holidays
This particular stores working hours weren't flexible for casual employee's because there were minimal employees available also there was no way to work your way into a permanent position, casual positions were all that were available. I found the work to be monotonous but the employees where friendly and I thought they taught you good customer service – more... practices. – less

Good to work for, very bad wage
Baker (Current Employee), Karingal Hub, VictoriaNovember 20, 2013
Pros: free food
Cons: long and early hours, bad wages
A general day working for bakers, Really good co-workers some can bully from time to time, once all the baking is done the most dragging part of the day is the cleaning as it takes longer to clean then it does to bake.

Customer Service (Former Employee), Cranbourne, VictoriaOctober 29, 2013
At Baker's Delight I would serve customers and clean the shop.
Also helped prepare the dough for the bread.
The hardest part was remembering the prices of the food.
But it was a fun time working there because it gave me a better understanding of communication skills
