    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    party 2x a year with free food and monthly Friday drinks as opportunity to bound with colleges.

    Cons

    Stressful! Job require more and more attention and time with out ability to actually use more time to perform task as there time was already a short resource. Additionally shops are chronically understaffed what additionally increases workload per person. In my store only hot chef in store have to double tasks between Till duties and Responsibility for ALWAYS present selection, libelling, preparation of hot food, baking over 200 pastries. Most of staff members are required to work over 45 hours a week. Staff members are being denied holidays booked with several months of notice.
