Bakery Clerk Reviews

What is it like working as a Bakery Clerk?

Bakery Clerk in Neptune:
"Bakery clerk."
Pros: Helping customers talking with them doing a great job and being told so . Getting a rewarding feeling when you truly help someone and can tell you made a difference in their day.
Cons: A lot of stressed out people around me. Very poor area. A lot of our sales only based off of food stamps. We also have tons of people that come and go way too frequently I think I've been through about 20 different clerks and we're now on our 4th new bakery manager in the past 2 years!
