    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time

    Pros

    Paid breaks, free food and hot drinks. Better paid than retail. You can swap shifts if you need to. Quick advancement if you can work extra hard and also have a brain.

    Cons

    Boring and monotonous tasks. Management doesn't listen or care. High staff turnover. You get paid very little for what you are expected to do. No benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job more interesting. Have proper incentives and benefits. Invest more in team building and ensure proper training. Have proper career advancevent opportunities.

    "It Was an Okay Headache"

      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.
