Great place to work but not forever.
Senior Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 30 May 2019
I worked at Bakers Delight for almost 4 years. I remember it fondly, the bad parts for me were mainly the rude customers and working with lazy and incompetent people. I believe the pay is great if you're front of house staff as you also get penalty rates on weekends. There is always something to do when working, whether it's cleaning, merchandising, slicing bread, etc. so it's not boring. I wouldn't recommend the job if you're lazy, you're on your feet all day and constantly lifting, reaching and squatting.
As a young person I felt there was a lot of career progression for me; I learnt all kinds of skills that are benefiting me now in my later jobs such as banking, people skills, ordering and stock take, I also trained new staff and acted as a "Manager" (that term is put very loosely) for the front of house and worked closely with my boss. The job can be morally challenging at the end of day and you can get some really horrible customers. I do feel that as an adult there isn't much career progression as it is easier and cheaper to teach younger people.
Overall Bakers Delight is a fantastic place for a job in my opinion, I learnt alot, had great pay and was able to develop an important position within the bakery I worked at.
