Specialtys was a cafe and Peets Coffee combined. I trained for almost every aspect of a bakery including but not limited to: baking and decorating pastries, barista, customer service, training of new employees and supervisor / managerial tasks. Also accustomed to sandwhich, soup and salad making. At times of extreme pressure, I was constantly put in charge of directing the front of house staff so that shifts ran smoothly. I would multitask with cashiering, ringing / setting out food orders, and making drinks up to Peet's standard. At times, I was sent to other Specialty's locations in Chicago to train new employees and to be trained. I was expected to abide by both Specialty's and Peet's Coffees standards including cleanliness, and overall productivity. I pride myself on my phenomenal work ethic and integrity in this work environment. The cafe went out of business in March of 2019.
