Fun and fast-paced environment with great people
Assistant Baker (Former Employee) – Northampton, MA – January 29, 2014
Tart Baking Company is a great little bakery in Northampton. Most days involve getting up before dawn, mixing doughs to be used for breads later that day, baking pastries for the cafe when it opens, preparing special projects.
It's a great place to learn; all of the employees are available to answer questions ranging from where ingredients are sourced to how to finish a wedding cake. Everyone is warm and friendly and interesting to talk to.
The hardest part of this job is that you are expected to be multitasking throughout the day: if you're baking, wash dishes in-between the timers for the ovens; never stand around waiting. Plus, getting up anywhere from 2-6am is never easy.
The people who work at Tart are undeniably some of the friendliest people I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
