Bakery Jobs

Hospitality Bakery Job Overview


Bakery jobs refer to any position within a bakery although the main position would be an actual Baker. They make everything from bread and savory dishes to cakes and sweet pastries. The hours are often long, and most workers find themselves working late at night after the bakery closes or early in the morning before it opens to prepare fresh products for customers. Other positions available inside the bakery include Cake Decorator, Cashier and Delivery Personnel.

Hospitality Bakery Education Requirements


While there are some positions open to those with experience alone, most employers look for Bakers that have a college degree. Applicants can complete an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts or Pastry Arts before applying. Some schools offer a joint program that sends culinary students to bakeries and restaurants to work in kitchens before graduation. Other bakeries hire workers with no experience and offer on-the-job training with a more experienced Baker. Front-of-house positions, including Cashiers and Clerks, must have the ability to speak with others and strong customer service skills. Not all positions in a bakery require working in the kitchen, but many of those positions include work in the back of the house.

The employment opportunities for those with more experience and a college degree is slightly higher.
