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

    Pros

    Hourly salary a bit higher of competitors Good training in customer service experience Paid break, meal free Discounts into all Pret A Manger stores Interesting to meet people from a different culture background Monthly social event

    Cons

    Too much pressure from the mystery shopper whence it depend the "bonus" Often happen to work "unpaid" overtime to finish daily duties Limited progression career if you're not in the state of grace of the Head of your working Area In many cases I've weighed up a big incompetence and lack of skills between Team Leader and Assistant Manager's position

    "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.
