    "Worst first day experience"

      Former Employee - Team Member in London, England

      I worked at Pret A Manger

      Pros

      Nothing at all..... Not even a 0.0005 star

      Cons

      Management don't speak one bit of English Staff in the kitchen don't speak English It's really hard to communicate Lies about family team vibes They don't recruit you for your work ethic So the team decides who gets in (I'm telling you NOW if you are not Italian, Hungarian, Spanish or polish they won't pick you in LONDON) Ethnic and racial issues (if you don't believe me go to few stores ask who's a white...

      "It Was an Okay Headache"

        Doesn't Recommend

        I worked at Pret A Manger part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Lots of free food, free coffee, they work around your schedule, and the pay is pretty good. Manager was awesome, but depends on the location.

        Cons

        Between grumpy coworkers, grumpy customers, and homeless people constantly destroying the bathroom, this place was just a headache. Definitely a job for morning people who don't mind hectic, robotic work that eats away at your soul one day at a time. The turnover rate was ridiculously high, and for good reason.

        Advice to Management

        No idea, good luck.
