    Pros

    Some people who got lured in by company PR

    Cons

    Manipulative and exploitative approach to employees as owners and senior management concerned about profit margin only. People are taken into account only if it makes a good PR. Genuinely fake and dishonest company.

    Pros

    I left my short lived career as to start a new chapter in life. The ideology of pret is tempting, your promised mystery shopper bonus free food, flexible hours, opportunity to grow within an expanding company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately for me its more like being in high school. The toxic work environment, favoritism, poorly structured and stressful work environment. Managers are always running around loosing their minds. People not caring wether they get their jobs done. Everyone who works here seems to only focus on getting their bonuses maxed even if it means working themselves into an early grave. Huge turn over, from the time I started to when I left almost ever manager quit. One store went through three managers from the time I started with them. I was asked to cover shifts more times than I can count. All while having a better position dangled over my head like a carrot and essentially doing the work of that position while not being paid the wage until my three months of training was completed and my online test were completed in order to receive the pay raise for the position I was already doing.
