They will schedule you for 6 1/2 hours so that you ONLY get ONE ten (!) minute break!

They are tricky! They say that you get a lunch AFTER 6 1/2 hours. So, they schedule you shifts of 6 or 6 1/2 hours...that means you ONLY get ONE 10 minute break!!
Also, if you work in the bakery you are NOT allowed to eat, sample, or bring a drink into the bakery...unless, of course you have worked there for years, or are a mgr. or hide your Mountain Dew in the walk in cooler- (different rules for different people) . They company's policy on eating a cookie, etc. is that it is shoplifting- which is TRUE!
The other thing that they won't tell you is that frozen breads, etc. are HEAVY (about 50lbs.), and you do have to go down to the freezer when the truck comes...your reward? About 9 bucks an hour , and you get to work just about every weekend- at least one day :)
You go home smelling like cake, donuts and bread that you can't try.
ONE 10 minute break---NO sampling allowed when you work in the bakery
