BAKERY CLERK (Former Employee), Sydney, NS – June 3, 2013
Pros: was able to eat some of the freshly baked good and was allowed to try new items.
Cons: very fast paced and a lot of stuff to do in a short time period
I packaged freshly baked goods and labeled them and stocked them on the shelves. I floor sheet was looked after every hour and must have been maintained because managers had checked it. Had to deal with unhappy and happy customers on a regular basis. Removed expired goods from the shelves. Generally worked alone, but communicated with other departments – more... and night shift managers and trained other employes to work in the bakery. Items had to be removed from the freezer and put on the shelf for the next morning and amount of product choose to be displayed was by me viewing the shelves. Also every item had to be inputed in the system to know how much had to be made for the following day. Made sure that the department was always displayed well. Had to have a thorough clean every night. I learned how to work at a fast pace and get everything done to the standard need with the time given. The hardest part was the amount of work that had to be done for the morning shift and the short time given to complete all the tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to meet new people and talk to co-workers when I had time. Everyone including the managers were very kind and very understanding and I got along with everyone quite well and never had any problems with management or co-workers. – less
