Bakery Manager Interview

Bakery Manager
Fox Point, WI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Fresh Market in March 2012.

Interview Details – This was a new store opening so they set up shop in a local hotel and did a mass screening with store managers and district managers. Looked very professional and it made the news. They then went to another hotel to do the call-backs with HR manager and store manager. All around was a good process.

Interview Question – Did not ask me anything about actual baking experience or anything regarding the baking field.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was a bait and switch. I interviewed for Management on the first interview then when i went into the second interview they said they already hired a manager and wanted me to be a baker.
