Former Employee - McDonalds Crew Trainer

I worked at McDonald's part-time

Pros

Such a laugh, never put in danger

Cons

Long hours on overnights, but worth it if you can hack it as you get paid more

Current Employee - Team Leader

I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time

Pros

Team members make a big difference - I had a lovely team (was a team leader there). Boss cared a lot about me and rest of the team. Worked in a nice area of London with many regulars returning each... day.

Cons

Hours can be tough and can move in irregular patterns Other Pret shops/bosses can give Pret a bad name
