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

    Pros

    - weekly Mystery Shopper (+£1 per hour for the whole team if the result is positive, opportunity to get £100/£200 bonus for outstanding/superoutstanding service) - free meal and drinks during work - 50% discount in all Pret shops - Pret parties (Christmas Party, Summer Party, Friday night drinks)

    Cons

    - huge pressure especially on the higher positions - working overhours without being paid, no breaks (happened to me only while working on the Team Leader position) - lack of recognition from your own manager elimitates the opportunity of growth (basically only your own manager can push you up on the career ladder and the reasons for promotions really often seems to be based on personal preferences)

    Advice to Management

    Definetely have a deeper insght into the progression situation within the shops. You lose lts of amazing people just because they stay unrecognized due to personal preferences of manager.

    "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.
