Most of the bakeries are franchises, so you're at the owners mercy.
Dishwasher/Utility Worker (Current Employee) – Arizona – July 22, 2018
Something they do not tell you is these are franchises which means the owner pretty much controls everything. This is both bad and good, good because if you get a good manager or owner this is a great job. The coworkers are the best and it's very laid back. But if you have a bad owner or manager your hours will be cut if they have a bad day or feel like your not doing things perfectly. Also they expect you to schedule your days off 2 weeks in advance, and you have to schedule your off days with them. Yes, your off days they claim this is so they'll know your availability. Also expect to cross-train, they expect you to be able to do multiple things. And they will fire you if you don't want to cross-train, because the more you know how to do the longer you spend in the bakery helping. They will expect you to help even after your 7 hour shift on your feet if you cross-train.

expired cakes expired ingredients. unorganized work place rude employees the manger and owner is rude and dose not know how to keep her employees under control. they call their freezer a chiller and the other employee will make you do all the work and you will get no appreciated for all the work you do.
The typical day at work would include, always staying on task, having something to do at all hours, and also being able to help customers with their needs. Also, you must pass a secret shopper test even though you would have no clue who that person may be. I passed my secret shopper report with a 100% and I am very dedicated to do every part of that test with every customer that walks through the door. Every customer should be treated with the same respect and knowledge that the person in front of them had and I made sure every guest service representative understood that. I was very honored to get to go to events that the owners invited me to as well, such as a Gala, 5K events, and most marketing events held. The hardest part of the job was making sure every stayed on task, although every one understood that I made the workplace a fun environment so it really didn't seem like hard work. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing customers faces light up with joy when they saw their cakes come out looking spectacular!

For the different positions I was in, it really did make it fun because I always learned something new and it made it better. How it started was nice but over time it got too much for 3 different positions I had with being short staffed often.
Crafter (Current Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – July 12, 2018
I’m fairly new to nothing bunt cakes. I work as a crafter and i love working and decorating the cakes. The time flys quickly which is nice. Sometimes it gets slow but i have things to do. I’m an artist so i wish there was a bit more of a differnce in the work i do. It’s a bit repetitive although its very calming and fun. I couldn’t have asked for a better manager and friendlier team. The store is huge on softly and i feel very comfortable here.
Baker (Current Employee) – Orland Park, IL – July 11, 2018
A typical day would be coming in at noon to finish up the day and pick up what the head baker left for me. Since I was a closing baker there would sometimes only be one of me. So depending on how much the head baker wanted to do before I got in constituted the amount of work I had left. It usually wasn't bad, but sometimes it was a bit much for one person. I would get help until about 2 or 3, then it was just me. Members of the frosting team would help when they could but they were usually busy with orders, events or keeping up with the store. I know how to properly manage my time so it would always be completed by close. Even with having to make frosting when baking was all done and put away. The environment was a great one to work in. Every employee was friendly with one another and would have conversation as we worked. Management was very understanding and open to everything you had to say to them, whether it be good or bad. I learned proper baking techniques and how to accurately scale out and measure ingredients for the batches being produced. I learned time management skills and how to better work as a team. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was the team. They were always smiling and ready to cheer you up if you weren't having the best day. This includes management. The team made the work day enjoyable.
Guest Service Representative (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 6, 2018
Started working here straight out of high school, left, and came back because of how great an environment it was for myself. Our owner and managers go above and beyond to make employees feel comfortable and to accommodate them.
Back of House Lead (Current Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – July 6, 2018
Working with nice people and wonderful cake, Nothing Bundt Cakes is a great job for people of any age and background. Productive work environment that focuses on efficiency, safety and cleanliness. Decent working hours and always closed on Sundays, which is great for a family oriented business. Hiring could be a lot better, but mostly the problem lies with people not willing to put in the effort to actually do a job well. Overall, a good place to work.
Froster (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – July 4, 2018
Great place for a first job. Low wages, but fun and relaxed atmosphere. We got to take home any cakes that were messed up! I Always tell everyone I wish I could go back to work for this company, but unfortunately they don't pay enough for me to be able to go back.
Guest Service Representative (Current Employee) – Temecula, CA – June 27, 2018
It's a perfect place to work for students in high school or college. The hours are flexible and the store hours are good. They're not open late. The managers are amazing and they work well with everyone and are understanding and helpful.
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 27, 2018
Unless you are just looking for something to do or you are a high school student, I do not recommend working here. Hours are scarce and management does not mind cutting your shift. The location is nice and so are most of the employees, but that does not fill you bank account. The hardest part of the job though is holidays. Every holiday is disastrous and disorganized. The most enjoyable is trying every cake flavor, being able to switch departments easily, and making a little family with the workers..
Bakery Associate (Former Employee) – Arizona – June 18, 2018
They want you to work 10 hour days, no break. No reviews. No raises. Jyst be their Ni$$a doing the job of two or three people for minimum wage and no raise ever, while most girls there receive food stamps and wash clothes in the bathtub...meanwhile owners and all fat grown kids go on cruises all year...
