I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very good salaries within the industry, compared to other big chains, great meal allowances,
opportunity to work within a team of people from various countries, great opportunities to step up within the ranks of employment, strong customer service orientated job

Cons

Tends to get very stressfull during busy periods with lots of pressure from the management, deadlines to keep throughout the day, time limited tasks, sometimes late payment of the over time, working 8days in a row according the rota, calls to come to work on your day off if other team members calls in sick, not fair salary rates for all the team members

Advice to Management

it would be great if employees wont be treated only as a work force that helps make money
