    I worked at Pret A Manger full-time for more than 3 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, there was no charity collection, as they always use in their marketing.

    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.
