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

    Pros

    Free food but all food companies offer free food for breaks nothing special. Nice collegues and hardworking team that deserve better

    Cons

    What a nightmare Pret A Manger is!! I can only recommend to join a union and study your rights. Managers and leaders for the most part are discriminatory, they favour who they like and bully those they don't like. Some leaders are great but they don't promote the good ones. Abuse seems their only leadership style. I don't recommend Pret at all. Too many lies and not enough pay for the stress. Don't start there.

    Advice to Management

    What is your training for managers?? Why are many so careless and some so rude and bullying?? What is your problem???

        I worked at Pret A Manger part-time (Less 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.
