Looney tunes
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  GTA, ON4 June 2019
To quote an old song ..."The lunatics are taking over the asylum."
The ones who regularly miss their shifts keep getting hours. Those who try to fix things only last a little while...

Great opportunity in a growing company
Plant Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 May 2019
It’s so refreshing to work for a company that cares about giving their customers the best quality. I love bringing home products from my place of employment and seeing my family enjoy them. The salary is very competitive for the industry and there is opportunity for growth considering the owner wants to expand and grow. The expectations are high to produce high quality pastries so sometimes things can seem intense, but it is ultimately for the greater good. Create a good product...retain customers...create job stability. It’s a fast pace challenging environment and I am looking forward to a long career here.
Pros
Competitive salary and an owner who is open to ideas to improve her business
Cons
Need to find more staff to fill gaps

A big joke!
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON7 December 2018
This company is a BIG joke. Everybody is leaving and the ones who are staying are not capable of finding another job!
The entire company is disorganized, new people are getting hired and nobody knows about them.

The owner is rude and arrogant, it is her way or the highway.
She and management are acting like real bullies.
Some people get all the privileges, like not having to work during the weekends although they are THE manager of the store.

People are in positions they shouldn't be in. Managing the pastry department when you are not even qualified to do so and in the meantime protecting some family members working there.
Well apparently it is all about buttering up the owner.
Plain ridiculous.
Stay away from this company and when you are working for them, try to find another job ASAP like I am doing!!!

Poor management
Packager/Cashier/Pastry (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON11 November 2018
Management structure is confusing and disorganized. New hires show up and nobody knows about them or what to do. New rules daily with poor training if you get any. Cleanliness is poor. Employee moral is poor. You are replaceable
Pros
Free samples
Cons
No saftey training, schedule comes out the day before the week starts

fun workplace for a few months
Barista and Sales Clerk (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 May 2018
hardest part of the job is standing for long hours at a time.
most enjoyable part of the job is learning about the pastries and sampling.
I learned a lot about traditional danish pastries like ingredients and how to pronounce each name of the pastries.
Pros
5% discount for regular staff and 20% discount for managers
Cons
unsteady hours, not enough staff
