Sales management members act like robots
Interview process is extremely easy. You go in, the interviewer might comment on how overdressed you are, and you are granted an opportunity for a working interview. If you are a sales assistant and show up in uniform, you will most likely be offered a job the next day. Your wage is not negotiated upon initial interview and minimum wage may be in your contract depending on your location. I did not receive an employment contract. In fact, I did not receive one until 2 months into my employment because the store manager had “forgotten about it”. You will begin doing extremely mundane daily tasks such as scrubbing dirt off the floor while customers step over you, and probably expect responsibilities to eventually become less trivial the longer you work here. However, they do not. This is what the job is. You slice bread, heat things up, make the product look nice, and if you have nothing to do, management comes over like a leech and says, “don’t just stand there, do something!” Besides entertaining management, the customers and the product are actually the best part about this job. My location happened to have some awesome regulars and phenomenal product, so it’s a shame I had to write this. The environment was decent until there was a turnover of half the staff, at which point I began to appreciate what I did here much less. Near the end of my employment, I was being watched like a hawk for every mundane task they told me to do. I didn’t expect questions to be encouraged any longer. When they were understaffed, my scheduling manager said, “don’t ask questions, you’ve been here long enough to know!” despite the thing in question being completely new information. I was handed a sheet containing the job description and sales staff expectations on my first day and I still keep it around; two point that stand out to me are, “adapts to changing circumstances,” and, “maintaining a good attitude”. Maybe the management should take their own advice. After I left, they threatened to withhold my last paycheque. The only decent thing they did after my last week was quickly backtrack on this statement, and I was paid.

Enjoyed my time
I worked at 3 locations in Edmonton, Callingood, Brewery District, and Leduc. I also did all 3 stations, bowls, production, and ovens. I liked the hours and being able to leave early if all jobs completed. Enjoyed Breaducate and their in store training sessions with the top Cobs Bread Baker of Canada. Felt I was highly trained for a position I knew nothing about with great Head Bakers and Owners.Really liked the fact that franchise owners are made to participate in in-store training.I loved my time at Cobs Bread and would go back to them again in an instant.

Bad management
You are always expected to work above your paygrade. Suck it up when you feel stretched to thin because you're going to be the unreasonable one. Management has very poor communication skills and plays favourites. If you have a problem with one of their favorites better suck it up because they will not care when they aren't pulling their own weight. You are expected to be available even on your days off. And it's seen negatively when you won't come in on off days.

General experience questions. Wants all employees to "echo" the baker every time something comes out of the oven. Asks you to practice yelling in interview.
