    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Paid food, hot drinks, breaks. Discounts, environment, people, parties, bonus and some awards.

    Cons

    The pressure, targets and mystery shopper standards are extremely hard to follow. Every shop has less people than required as this affects shops profitability. After 2 years, I have realised that the company does not care as much about the staff as they did a year ago or more. There are less awards, pay is about the same as average now and shifts starting from 5 only increase health problems.

    Advice to Management

    Please have the staff send feedback more often about working within the company. Especially about the managers that come externally, as most of the time, their personality only is good for business, but not for the people that work under.

    "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.
