Worked at this company for a good amount of time, worked really hard to do everything they gave me. We would lose people and I was one of the people they turned to in order to cross-train and take the job that we were short at. Management is severely lacking at the location I was at.
50% off food.
Short breaks, Not guaranteed your hours, very hard to advance
General Food Service and Trainer of New Employees (Former Employee) – Westwood Village, CA – January 9, 2016
Corner Bakery is a significant experience for a job to learn about the food and beverage career environment. It is a daily busy work force that gains leadership and teamork. It takes tremendous vitality to work on basis full time schedule. From working to and from seven days a week, enforcing three person jobs done at one person ability, propaganda for subjectivity than community with employees and management. However a job one can do with patience, teamwork and mutual understanding for customer service in food and relations with compassionate behavior and responsibility.
Catering/ Coordinating Supervisor (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – November 11, 2015
if you want to hone your skills with marketing and communicating to high end corporate accounts, this is a great place to get your feet wet. the catering job is very fast paced and you must be willing to work under stress. this is not a place that you can build a long term career at. pay compensation is low, but the experience you gain is valuable.
Head Cook (Former Employee) – Chino Hills, CA – November 1, 2015
Early morning shift start by turning on my Panini grills, stove, and warmers. Collecting all ingredients for the day. In charge of making sure kitchen is up to and has all ingredients for the day. Communicating with FOH making sure everyone from cashier to the servers. Not hardest but would a little hold being short staff, having head cook pick up the extra responsibilities. Having awesome feed back from our guest made the smile fro the day.
Barista and Cashier (Current Employee) – Warwick, RI – October 4, 2015
Every day I go in loving what I do. I know nothing short of exceptional services is required of me, and I love the drive and pressure it puts on me.The most enjoyable part for me is I don't just sit in one position all day I do many things through out the day. at one point I'm running cash and making drinks, then I'm in the back baking cookies, just to run out in the dining room and serve tables or helping to make sure catering is out the door on time, personally delivering catering orders. its what motivates me everyday I don't know what I'll be doing but I know its going to push me to my limit and I'm going to smile throughout it because I'm truly happy doing it. Hours are limited but they work with your schedule and are flexible. if you need a day off they understand and will make sure you have as many days off as you need. My managers work with you not against you.I love how they realize you have a life outside of work and encourage you to make sure you work to live not to live to work. We hire people not only based on experience but personality. I can truly say I love every single person I work with. this is the first job I don't go into thinking of away to avoid a certain person. Our personalities meld to gather so perfectly which helps us in our production. Production becomes so easy because everyone truly has each others backs we learn and teach each other everything we know. the only con that I can think of is I need more hours they cant provide. everyone one has less than 35 hours and it isn't enough to sustain a living.
Vindictive management to be overworked and underpaid without steady hours
Cashier/Server (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – September 10, 2015
Upon being hired, Corner Bakery loves to give the impression of a future of gainful employment. They pitch a great story about how if you try hard, you'll succeed and get what you want. They tell you to set goals and ambitions and work towards them. However, within a month of being employed there, you learn that it's a facade. They'll call you in to cover a server shift, knowing that's the number one thing you're working towards. When you get in, they'll tell you that they're moving you to cashier and putting the cashier on serving, even though they told you over the phone that you'd be taking a server shift. My general manager began a campaign of harassment against me. When I finally called HR and filed a formal complaint, the HR manager was floored at what I told her. However, when the investigation was launched, it went nowhere because my general manager was buddy buddy with the area director, who struck the investigation down. Shortly following that, my hours were cut from 46 hours per week to 12 hours per week. That's when my employment with them ended.
