My Job at a Panera Bread Cafe is very simple. I am responsible for ALL of the bakery goods you see. The Breads, Sweets, Pastries, and Bagels. My night starts at 8pm, and I begin prepping product for baking. I am trained to work alone and process up to $2,500 worth of product alone in about 11 hours.
Also responsible for all Bakery Cleaning tasks weekly, sanitation is a Must.
We work to meet Franchise standards, and get rewarded for our efforts. Baker inspections happen on a Monthly basis.
So, I am no stranger to High Volume Production.
My manager and myself communicate via e-mail, and I see asst. bakery ops. manager many once every two weeks. I hold a lot of responsibility on my shoulders for an entire cafe.
