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

    Pros

    Hiring process is robust and Engaging. Sadly its terrible beyond this

    Cons

    - Demotivating Team Leads.Grossly biased unless you are from their country/background. In the two weeks only heard 'you have to be fast' - to all new recruits,mind it. - Tasks used to be switched instantly from one station to another. Only constant was handling of trash - dispose it when you start, when you take a break or are closing your shift. - On the 8th day of joining - assigned to close the kitchen - with no...

    "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.
