    I have been working at Pret A Manger part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice and hard working team members.

    Cons

    Very bad management. They treat you like a slave. You have zero value for them. They don't recognize your effort. They thread us and show the door if we don't work very fast. So many people are not happy. I wonder what kind of manager training they give that manager treats people like crap. She is new manager, she is trying to get self satisfaction in this way.

    Advice to Management

    If they give value to people, they will lose so many good worker. Worker circulation costs much more than bonus that should be given for motivation. They need to design kitchen ergonomicly if they want team work faster.
