One the Job: Pretzel maker
By: Josh Shannon
Christopher Murrin started working at the Philly Soft Pretzel Factory in Elkton just two months ago. He must have done something right, because in that short time, he has risen through the ranks and now serves as the store’s manager.
How did you get your start?
How did you train for the job?
I’ve had experience doing retail management for about five years. You just get taught when you come in the door and that’s it, basically. You train with somebody else who has been working here for a while.
What essential skills are required?
You need a little bit of restaurant experience. We do have bakers here, so a little bit of baking experience. But, basically, retail experience – dealing with customers and things like that.
