Baker
March 20th, 2014

A baker is someone who bakes and sells bread. Cakes and similar foods may also be produced, as the traditional boundaries between what is produced by a baker as opposed to a pastry chef have blurred in recent decades. The place where a baker works is called a bakehouse, bakeshop, or bakery.

No, I haven't actually, though I know most of the shops around the center as I am around very often.

The main grain is special because all of your products are made from the freshest local ingredients. Your employees are also kind, hardworking, dedicated, and very involved in the bakery. In most other bakeries, employees see their job as JUST a job. But I feel like here, it's more like family.

Sometimes our bakery gets crowded. Will you get stressed out if a line starts forming?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I'd like to think that I would not. I'd stay calm and spend appropriate time with each customer, while getting their orders done as fast as possible.
 
2.
No I handle busy times very well.
 
3.
First off, remain calm, breathe, and smile. No one will be able to tell you're stressed if your smiling. Second, work as fast as possible while still maintaining neatness and persiceness. If there's other people working, have everyone doing a different job of keeping costumers satisfied while they wait.
 
4.
No I just stay busy and motivated don't really worried about it.
 
5.
Certainly not stressing means you are not fit for this work or business customer are always the same but being polite and make them feel special is all what they want so be generous and serve them.
