I worked at Pret A Manger part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

None that I can think of.

Cons

Too many. Lack of defined management, finger-pointing, politics and poor organisation. Honestly, does anyone working at Pret ever look happy?

Advice to Management

Spend a shift with employees.

    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time

    Pros

    Discounts and they're not even worth it

    Cons

    Crazy work hours
    0 respect for employees
    Too much stress, let's face it pret, you're a sandwich shop
    Not that good wages anymore, everyone around you is raising the hourly wages, 10p is not enough
    Communication sucks
    Crazy standards impossible to follow
    0 motivation for staff, if you treat people like they're useless and worthless, they won't work so well anymore
    Employees are the blood of the company, not customers, not ingredients, not the shops, TREAT PEOPLE PROPERLY!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Just Rethink your whole policies, they sucks, get down from that high horse you're on
