Really? It is not a reasonable belief to build an organic artisan bakery without a great team to help make it happen. We pay for our staff team additional education, for health and first aid certificates, we facilitate registration for the Red Seal Training programmes and provide for time off to attend classes.
Your personal attacks on individuals will not be commented on.
Clearly it did not work out for you. Let's wish you the best of success at your next position.
As a baker, I appreciate your comments about the great quality of the product. As to your comments about breaks, we have breaks and our staff team is expected to take them. There are times that the breaks are moved to deal with the dough. As a baker, you would know that time and temperature control the flow of our artisan products. It is not a machine operator but rather an artisan baker that has success in our bakery.
As to selling your soul, I can assure you that we have no trade in souls and if you have lost your soul, maybe some searching will help you find it.
We did have an individual employed with A Bread Affair several years ago that "volunteered" to help with vehicle maintenance. And while it did not work out for that person, the contribution to vehicle maintenance was neither encouraged nor of use as the individual did not have the skill set to perform those tasks.
I am truly sorry things did not work out for you, but I am sure that you will achieve success in the future. Its been a couple of years now, but we still wish you the best of success.
I am very concerned that you have stated overtime is not compensated. A Bread Affair literally pays thousands of hours of overtime each year. You would have signed an averaging agreement when you started and it was explained in detail the basis of the agreement.
Hours are logged on a time clock. If you believed hours were missing, you had access to the time clock records to see for yourself.
Owners are not involved in requesting time off. As you would have been aware, the Request for time off policy was included in your starting package. You need to send in a request for time off and it would have been dealt with by your Team Leader. Neither management or owners are team leaders. We have had, on many occasions individuals requesting time off outside of the process and they are consistently advised to follow procedure. This is likely the cause of your concern, as A Bread Affair grants over 90% of time off requests we receive!
I hope your next position works better for your lifestyle.
Thank you for your kind words. With your attitude, success in the future is virtually certain.
Thanks for the note. A Bread Affair is a growing organization and we are recruiting for additional staff. We work hard to find the right fit and our administration team has a responsibility to be accurate with the orders, formulas and distribution. We need to ensure individuals have the computer skills to work with our enterprise software.
As to time off, you would be aware of our request for time off policy and the process. It was part of your hire package. When our staff team request time off following that process, A Bread Affair grants it more than 90% of the time.
As an office Clerk in Langley, you would not have dealt with owners as part of your work at A Bread Affair. I do not understand how you would be able to make comments on their professionalism.
I am truly sorry you feel that way. With a minimum wage for any position in the bakery at $14./hour, and a $15.00 an hour minimum wage for our retail bakery clerks, perhaps working a retail position is not really something you want to do. Our wages are significantly above virtually every competitor.
I hope you will be able to find a better position for yourself.
