    You walk into the room and sign in while waiting for your name to be called along with other people in the waiting room. After they call your name, you sit in a booth and wait until an employer sits down to interview you. They’ll tell you a location to go to for your next interview or they’ll tell you that you will receive a call or email the next day by a certain time to let you know if you got the job or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pret A Manger.

    Interview

    Went to the hiring headquarters in Manhattan. Did a very easy interview and was told to move on to round 2. However, when I did the store interview, the manager said that she didn't have my availability since I'm in college. So, she said that she'll call the other pret's to see if they have my availability, but she failed to call me to update. So i completed the second interview for no reason.

    Marketing Position Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pret A Manger.

    Interview

    They called me and asked me a questions regarding my resume (out of the blue, didn’t ask me if it was a good time, and it was pretty much an on the spot phone interview). Then I received an email asking me if I could come in for an in person interview the following week. The interview was very formal and wasn’t really conversational at all. The interviewers took notes on everything I said and I didn’t really feel like they were genuinely looking to get to know me. They asked me both basic and hard questions, and mentioned they were conducting second interviews the week after and that they will be in touch. Never heard from them after that. Very unprofessional and quite rude.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Was only 15 minutes. I had the interview in the summer but they didn't hire me because I believe they had the idea that I only wanted a seasonal job, but I told them I wasn't completely sure if I could work during the fall as I commute to college, but I was willing to work that out with them. They said they'd get back to me and emailed me a while later saying I didn't get it. I already knew when I left the interview that I wasn't going to get hired though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I completed the application online and a few minutes later I received an email for an in person interview at the recruitment office. I went to the interview 2 days later and it was very simple. The recruiter was friendly. Only took about ten minutes. Later that day I received a call from the same recruiter to schedule my shop interview. I did the shop interview the following week. The shop interview was pretty much a brief interview with the store manager then I shadowed team members for about 2 hrs. After that the manager told me I could go home. The team was very welcoming & informative. I honestly had fun so I left pretty confident. A few days later I got an email with the job offer. The whole process took about two weeks.
