    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    You can meet and work with some great people from all over the world.

    Cons

    The company is trying to brainwash you, they expect you to give up your life and be ready for Pret 24/7; they want to use you. There are a lot of favouritism, which leads to promoting incompetent people to more senior roles. The salary system is completely unfair; people who work for the company for 5,6,7,etc. years get the same salary as a someone who just started a few months ago. The management expects you to do...

    Advice to Management

    It's not the NASA, just a sandwich shop, where human beings work, not robots.

    "It Was an Okay Headache"

      I worked at Pret A Manger part-time for more 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.
