Entry-Level Bakers fill the offices of leading firms Panera Bread Company, Dunkin' Donuts, Safeway, Inc., Wal-Mart Stores, Inc, and Panera LLC. Salary cannot be beat at Hy-Vee, Inc., where median pay comes to $27K. The range seems somewhat confined, however; the lower end sits at $25K, and the higher end is not far away at $36K. Panera LLC, Publix Super Markets Inc, and Panera Bread Company are a few other companies that offer generous salaries, with Entry-Level Bakers earning around $26K, $25K, or $25K at each firm, respectively.
Dunkin' Donuts doles out the lowest salaries in town — median pay is $19K — not to mention workers can only make as much as $23K and scope of pay is rather limited. A few other companies with smaller-than-average paychecks include Casey's General Stores, Inc. ($20K), Safeway, Inc. ($21K), and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc ($21K).
