I worked at Pret A Manger full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I can't tell too many Pros. Just that they give you free food depending on the hours you work, but nothing else.

Cons

Lots of pressure, and work colleagues shouting at you. Starting the shift at 5am. I haven't got paid. There're too many opportunities in London so don't end up working here.

Advice to Management

They should take care a bit more of their employers.

    I worked at Pret A Manger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is alright i guess
    Some employees are nice
    Free food
    They have charities
    Theyre usually in central areas
    Thats it theres actually nothing else

    Cons

    One of the ones in oxford street, they 'help out' a homeless guy by giving him coffee bit when people want to buy him coffee they say he wont drink it
    If youre young and look young (im 17) they will be difficult with youre last payment
    They always make mistakes like 'adjust the rota' resulting in me not being able to work
    They dont tell you what you're entitled to food wise
    Some of the management are rude or never show up
    The team leaders make younger employees do the worst jobs

    Advice to Management

    Fix up or some of your shops will lose on customers
