In terms of your personal experiece of baking cakes for personal use, just emphasise your ability to follow recipes carefully, weighing ingredients accurately and not producing large amounts of waste. I bet training is given anyways so you produce cakes and bread within Sainsbury's bakery guidelines and procedures. They are more interested in HOW work - these are transferable skills(Original post by angryjobseeker)
Yo guys, got an interview for Sainsbury's as a baker but I have a question. At the very start of the application form it asked if I had previous bakery experience, I ticked yes.
I do have bakery experience, I have baked several cakes for myself and followed recipes but I think they meant bakery experience actually in a bakery.
I really don't want to waste my time if that is what they meant, is there anyway I can spin it to my advantage?
If they are looking for someone who has worked in a bakery rather than someone who has baked their own cakes for personal consumption they are not going to be too happy are they?
I am not going to waste my time if there is a non existent chance of me getting the position.
Top it off with a smile on your face and say that you regularly watch the Great British Bake Off (or some other popular cooking show). This gives a glimpse into your personality and talents
