I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time

Pros

nice co-workers that try to help as much as they can
free nasty food

Cons

super biased managers most of the girls in my store are from the same place even the assistant manager and FOH so they tend to group together against people they don't like even if they don't know them.
Won't let anybody work over time even if they want to and tells them this because they don't want to pay anybody more than they have to.
 No tips and will get you in trouble for receiving any type of tips
horrible training and won't listen to employees

Advice to Management

return tip
talk to new employees
make sure the store isn't just a bunch of biased friends that if you aren't part of their group they'll make your life hell
