Family like environment but small town store equals drama
Baker/Cake Decorator (Former Employee) – Morinville, AB – 19 March 2018
Though I had a wonderful experience working here, not everyone did. It can feel very family-like in the way everyone is there for you but at the same time that level of involvement comes with the gossip, drama and petty conflicts. A select few managers are very proactive and well rounded, but a lot of "paper work" managers exist in which they disappear to do "manager work" and leave the employees to run the departments. As with most chains, the amount of new hires is fairly consistent and the ability to "move up" is not super prevalent.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with snobby customers, and the best part was the friends you make at work. The tasks are not rocket science and it definitely is less stress than a fast food service job and less labour intensive than a construction job.
