    I worked at Pret A Manger full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great Parties, and nothing more

    Cons

    Not much support to the management from the Operations Team. Had to work there at least 12 hours, as there was no other manager in the store, due to some HR issue, and hadn't received the bonus, due to lack of staff which influenced my Family tree. As I worked in the satellite store, I wasn't able to manage my produce and was left with quite a lot of food waste, instead of having an ability to increase sales. As well,...

    Advice to Management

    Change the style of work, as well as try to listen to the suggestions from your workers. As much as they "Like to promote internally" you are still just a pawn for them.

    "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.
