    I worked at Pret A Manger part-time

    Pros

    The staff is usually very nice and friendly, I really enjoyed meeting them.

    Cons

    There's too much pressure.They overwork their staff with little compensation.Any bad move and you lose the bonus, and the work in the kitchen is incredibly difficult and they stay past their schedule but they don't get anything for it.Pret used to be about having a happy staff and happy costumers, now it's just about the money. They keep feeding people this image of "happiness, good times, best place in the world!!" that when you really start working there you become very surprised and disappointed.I quit my job just after 3 weeks because I was feeling physically sick and they gave me insane shifts to do without my permission.
