A typical day at work (for the porter position) starts off by checking the stock in the shop and making sure the arriving bakers have everything they need and that the porter clocking out has left the kitchen in a stable condition. The rest of the day consists of cleaning any dishes the baker needs or will need shortly, making sure the back of the house is well stocked with milk, sugar, chocolate, etc. The trash must also be taken care of every 1-2 hours. Each shift has a specific task associated with it and this task must be completed before clocking out. The staff is mostly young, so I found it very easy to communicate with co-workers. Management was very poor. Periodical raises would not arrive on time for workers, schedules would change without notice at times because of the lack in communication. I felt needed, but not appreciated or noticed for my work. I felt I could still be fired at anytime. The hardest part was having to prove to your managers that you were working. The most enjoyable part of the job was the staff. My co-workers kept a nice family environment in the store at all times.
