I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The contract is fixed and not 0 hours
Lunch is free and breaks are paid
Your uniform is supplied for you

Cons

Low pay for the level of work expected
Management bonuses are profit driven so hours are cut often
The £1 bonus is often used as a threat to keep people in line
I would recommend joining a union

Advice to Management

Team Members deserve london living wage from a company that has the means to supply it
