    Disapproves of CEO

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


    - unlimited free hot drinks on the shift - free food allowance


    - hard to get a promotion. They will train you, say to be barista, then will make you do barista shifts for 3-6 months while paying you a salary of a team member. I.e., underpaying you by ~£1/hour. While promising you that they will send you to the training, approve your training, etc., next week, next next week. -had a chance to work in 5 different shops - most managers/assistant managers don't care.

      "It Was an Okay Headache"

        Former Employee - Team Member in New York, NY
        Doesn't Recommend

        I worked at Pret A Manger part-time (Less than a year)


        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.


        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.
