    very neurotic environment - everyone is so afraid of little mistakes - management manipulate in fear and are always stressing us. very stressful not worth the pay -

    Advice to Management

    get some psychological help - your leaders are neurotic - what do you do to them?

      "It Was an Okay Headache"

        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.
