    I worked at Pret A Manger part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Uniform washed for you. Fridays free drinks are great if you get on with your team. Plenty of free food and coffee Great for people who want to work in restaurants in the future

    Cons

    Too much pressure. Too short/ irregular breaks. Shift patterns.

    Advice to Management

    1. Hire a cleaner/ re-stocker, it's too much multitasking, sometimes the managers and team members have to dash off to clean toilets etc at busy lunch time. 2. Allow an extra 18 hours before throwing fresh food away, you'll save money. 3. Raise the general salary a little per hour and only give a generous bonus to the team member who got it. This will boost morale not 'dangling a carrot' and peer pressure... "motivation".
