enjoyable place to work and meet new people
Baker (Current Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 13 June 2017
A typical day at work in Asda would involve me starting at 5am and firing off (baking) that mornings fresh bread and rolls which I had made the previous day and put on re tard (controlled environment chill) while everything would be in the oven I would bring out the frozen products needed for that day. I would then make the remaining bread needed for that day, then I would start production of the products needed for the following day.
I've learned a lot really, how to work as a team, how to work smarter and not harder, I'm not saying it isn't hard work but you don't need to get stressed over the work load.
The management team are all mostly approachable people but like anywhere in life you might get a clash of personalities.
The job in its self isn't that difficult as I've been doing it for 22 years now, I suppose when I first started out I struggled to remember all the recipes and baking times etc..
The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the quality of my finished products.
Lots of friendly people willing to lend a hand if needed
different shift patterns.
