Cook (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 2 April 2019
Art Is In is a super intersting place to work. With 4 departments to work in, there is always something new to learn. Everything is made from scratch with a very high standard of quality expected from every employee. Kevin is so knowledgeable about bread and pastry and he does some killer specials. There are a lot of people who have been there for a long time and it creates a nice environment to work in. Staff parties are really good! Pay is above average. Hours are usually flexible within reason.
I would advise anyone who is thinking of working here to avoid it at all cost. Management only starts checking on employees when they notice that the company is starting to get internet hate. Nepotism is real in this company. The FOH manager has no clue what she's doing and lacks the skills for her job. Its honestly really sad to see them hire employees and get rid of them when they don't need them anymore.
The longer you stay you stay here the more you start to notice everything that is going wrong with the company. Its a game of favouritism here. Management might not want to admit but the company lacks diversity for a reason. They usually hire and decide to keep the same type of people.

Not worth the 30+ min wait, as well as the horror stories of the employees that work there. I feel genuinely terrible that a family run business treats their staff with little to no respect. Highly recommend anyone to go to Bread By Us. They dont have hiring sprees just to make it through the "tough seasons" then fire any employees that weren't good enough. Disgusting.
long wait, The owners are rude to their staff, expensive
