 “Life is what you make it, but Greyston  helps you achieve what you want to do in life”.   Dion Drew – Bakery Trainer

 

 

While baking 30,000 lbs of delicious brownies on a daily basis is no small task, Open Hiring is the hallmark of Greyston Bakery. For over 30 years, Greyston has proudly maintained an open door hiring policy, offering employment opportunities regardless of educational attainment, work history, or past social barriers, such as incarceration, homelessness or drug use. We believe that employment is the first step in an individual’s path toward success.

Here’s how it works: anyone that comes to the front door of our bakery is given the chance to work, no questions asked. When a job becomes available we hire the next person on our waiting list. During the apprenticeship period, our employees learn baking and employment readiness skills. Greyston provides resources, personal development tools and training in professional skills.  In 2012, Greyston Bakery provided employment opportunities and training to 181 residents within our community.
