Cookies, cakes,'s a sweet deal with Dierbergs!

You love multitasking, are equally comfortable working independently and interacting with customers who are happy to see you - hello, it's a bakery! You take pride in what you do, and it shows. You have a creative side that is nurtured in a positive, pleasant environment

You're all that - and more - which makes you perfect-as-pie for a

  • A friendly, customer service-oriented personality to provide best-in-class service that Dierbergs is known for
  • Basic math and computer skills

  • Good penmanship and steady hands (no baking is involved, but you'll write messages on cakes)

  • Willingness to take on more responsibility as needed
  • Ability to work in varied temperature-controlled environments (refrigerator and freezer)

  • Ability to follow safety and food-handling guidelines to keep the work area safe and clean
  • Flexibility to work a varied schedule that includes weekends and holidays

Physical Requirements

  • Lifting & Carrying - Up to 35 lbs occasionally

  • Medical insurance ...401(k) and pension plans...paid time off - even for part-time Associates

  • Automatic, scheduled pay increases to reward your awesome performance

  • Work/life balance and flexible scheduling so you can have a life, too

  • Training and growth potential to help you reach your career goals with us

  • Discounts at the Starbucks kiosks inside some of our locations
