be accurately followed, and basic arithmetic skills are essential.

Workplace safety and food safety are paramount. The work of a baker involves both heavy lifting and
repetitive motions, and you must be able to clearly demonstrate how to safely accomplish these tasks.
You will be trained on how to safely operate all bakery equipment and tools, which must be strictly
followed at all times. Food Safe procedures will be trained and must be adhered to, and the facility is to
be kept at a high degree of cleanliness at all times.

experience in a restaurant, work camp kitchen, or other food production operation, or participation in a
culinary training course or program. An interest in creating food with your hands is essential. Supported
