Former Employee - Team Member

I worked at Pret A Manger full-time for less than a year

Pros

Training Starting salary Pleasant environment

Cons

Sometimes 6 days a week initially

Current Employee - Barista

I have been working at Costa part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

* Good open-close hours, so usually the longest shift you will ever do there is 12 hours (including 1 hour break) * You can set how many hours you want to work, to work around you schedule * Great... team, everyone is happy and positive, as providing great customer service is our priority * Learn transferable skills, which can be used in other jobs Free coffee on shift, and 25% discount in other Costa stores

Cons

* Customers can be rude * Very focused on sales (but can't really blame a business for this) * Gets quite busy during some periods
