Role as Bakery Clerk and Baker (Former Employee) – Port Moody, BC – 21 February 2014
A typical day at work for me was either baking in the back or packaging and helping customers. I learned a lot from thriftys, most of my baking experience came from there and my customer service. Management at thriftys goes as follows your department manager, store manager, branch manager and finally company manager. Being where I was I only dealt with department and store, my department manager was great and taught me a lot. My store manager was one of the reasons I quit as he never treated some of our employees with respect and he defiantly lost mine. My co-workers were awesome and I actually would look forward to work with them! We all got along and the atmosphere was amazing. The hardest part of the job was being able to do everything they demanded on time a lot of the time I had to work overtime and deal with a lot of workload. The most enjoyable part of the job was baking. I loved making all the yummy product and the smell and taste of them were great and knowing that I made that and that people are enjoying the product I made.
They usually worked around your life and its was a fun atmosphere
Pastry Decorator (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 5 February 2018
Quite honestly, I did not meet anyone within the company that was happy at work. The management was never kind to workers, which had a lot of then quitting after not working there very long. None of the employees enjoy their time at work, and spend their shifts wanting to go home.
