    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
