I loved working for Rainbow foods
Cake decorator/ Bakery Manager (Former Employee) – Richfield, MN – February 23, 2016
My days at work were busy and I loved that. I played many roles and knew all the aspects of everything in that bakery and that meant in one day at work I could bake,package product, decorate cakes, and put orders in. It was a very stressful job,but I seem to work pretty good under pressure.
When I first came to Rainbow Foods all I knew how to do was decorate cakes ( I had about 12 years of experience at that time) I learned so much after that. I learned how to bake, manage people, do all the ordering, All the little details, such as cleaning, checking temps on all coolers/freezers. the importance of good sanitation standards.
I learned a lot from the managers. I liked them all, even the real strict ones because I learned the most from them and they had high expectations, which in turn made me have the same mind set. They taught me how to manage people. I also had good co-workers and miss them!
The hardest part of my job was the worry if i would be able to get everything done for the day. I did most days, and if not i knew how to arrange things so the most important things got done , and put off what couldn't get done until the next day. It always worked out in the end.
The holidays were the best part of my job, because I love the busy hustle,bustle, and loved helping the customers and wishing them a happy holiday (whatever holiday it was). I loved having the spirit of the holiday in the department and to have that cheer carry on to the customers.
Paid vacations, paid medical insurance, bonuses at the end of year whenever our store met all the standards. Paid holidays.
