    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time

    Pros

    Free food, good coffee, company parties, some nice people

    Cons

    -Racist, non-inclusive environment that upper management and hr are fully aware of but ignore. The use of the "N word" and many other racial slurs are common every day. You wonder how some of these people got hired into a customer service job. -Very political when it comes to treatment of certain employees -Unprofessional and low class work environment, with coworkers treating each other horribly, and also being disrespectful and rude to customers. Sexual harassment is also common. -Terrible management training program for new hires. Very little follow through and proper instruction in the shop. You're basically on your own. Some decent classes at the training center with good instructors but there are very few of those. -Most outside manager hires and many other employees come from traditional fast food and are really unprofessional and have very low management skills
