Hello,

I worked as a baker(approx. 25 hrs/week) in a franchise making dough(from scratch), baking etc. I resigned due to personal reasons. Now my previous employer wants me to come in to work just one shift. The baker(2) they hired don't seem to be able to produce the same quality. How do you charge if they require you to train a baker they have hired while doing the shift?

Probably what you were paid per hour?  Maybe a little more in case this person is not the brightest bulb around.....I mean what if they cannot absorb what you are telling them or refuse to do it right and you get frustrated?  I do not envey you having to do this.

$10 more an hour -- oh hell yes blush no, wait  -- start at twelve more an hour then go down to ten dollars more -- give you a little wiggle room -- if they want expertise you charge 'em for it!

I've had to train many people during the course of my working life (not baking, by the way) and it was just part of the job.  I agree, it is not the most pleasant task, so push it as hard as you dare!

sandra -- she's not an employee anymore though -- yes if she was an employee it's part of the gig -- but if you're called back in for a special assignment kaching!
