I worked at Pret A Manger full-time

Pros

To be a restaurant, it is a good place to work. Good compensation, bonus, great locations, and great training.

Cons

The company is very strong with their standards. PRODUCTION in the Kitchen is crazy.

Advice to Management

If you want to follow the company standards, you need to have enough labor. Do not kill your employees.

    Pros

    Free lunch
    Alright benefits
    Team Star awards (if your boss decides to use them)
    Company party

    Cons

    *Over worked with little pay
    *Manager didnt even use our team award money 2x! hardwork went to waste
    *promote people when it benefits them
    *everyone complains how much they hate this job
    *managers dont care about standards (manager was too lazy to change the meatball and the falafel sign even though there were many complaints)
    *manager told me how easy HIS "job" was (he's mostly in his office so he gets paid to sit and do nothing because he has his leaders do majority of his work)
    *manager spent one day on doing my (barista book) and kept telling me next week we will sit down and work on it...
    *everyone wants to get transfer out (from my shop)

    Advice to Management

    everyone should've started at the bottom and worked up.
