I worked at Pret A Manger full-time

Pros

Good contract hours, free food on shift, 50% off shift.

Cons

Not for British people or young people. Very strict at some stores. Big divide between team leaders/managers and team members. Managers just want their massive bonus will work too like a slave.

Advice to Management

Relax it's coffee and sandwichs

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

    Pros

    Pret as an organisation really care about their employees. Able to approach Head Office for anything you need. They appreciate feedback. Pay is good

    Cons

    The management at individual branches isn't great - they seem more concerned about hitting targets than managing their staff. I worked at five different places - two managers brought in from outside were good, the other three were terrible managers.

    Advice to Management

    Train your internal managers better
