Baker in Vancouver, BC
on 14 December 2022
Productive, smells great. Needs updating internal structure.
Great to learn baking basics and more skill. Worked about 2 years, with great coworkers and management/ test bakers. Good work ethics and respect at this location. My personal experienced as a part-time baker (3day baking day), once in a while sales. As an oven baker; very busy, hot, and rarely find solid 15min break or let alone 30min for lunch. Always be early is my advise: timing and always checking ovens and have good communication/ planning with your fellow baker on the Bowl. And safety and well being first report injury/ accidents, pace yourselves sales and bakers. (Eg. bread slicer, hot moulds, etc)! The location is old, as part of a strip of properties all connected side by side. Would suggest an upgrade or other (interior) to optimize work flow for bakers, improving sanitation stations with walls and floors for worker safety. Lots of bread. Honestly should donate gourmet buns/ challah to to those who need it (atleast on the same day you could donate to the soup kitchens/ handouts/ churches with the other donations), i know the have eggs. But still lots of waste, i see.

Poor management and dumb work schedules
Toxic work environment, and the work schedule changes sometimes without a heads up so it leaves you no room for a social life because of how unpredictable it is, also if you're anything like and you don't like being micromanaged that's another thing you need to keep in mind!

great coworkers, horrible management
There was very little communication between management and the staff, which led to many problems in the store regarding tasks and payment issues. Management would often flake and ignore requests or issues brought up by staff which would lead to even more issues. In specific, payment. Pay is very inconsistent and is often not even the right amount. Staff would also commonly be asked to either come in early, or stay late to tend to extra tasks that they were NOT trained for which would often lead to staff being required to work overtime. However, the pros to this job are that it is easy to get a hang of, it is not too stressful as a part time student, you get free food, and the coworkers are great.

Horrible place to work
Be careful if you work in this bakery. Costumers are nice but work environment horrible. You have to prepare to work hard and with out a break. Your Manager will never listen to you and you will end frustrated all the time
