I worked at Pret A Manger full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You Get Hired Fast because they fire fast and people quit fast

Cons

I Can Give It No Stars Is Possible
-Too Much Work For The Pay
-Schedule Varies Every Week
-Felt Like A Slave
-They Want You To Make 12 Itiems In Less Then A Hour
-Management Is Horrible
-Misscomunication
-Low Pay For The Job
-Too Many Unreasonable Rules And Restrictions
-They Expect You Not To Have A Life While Working There
-People Quit Every Day
-No Fairness
DO NOT WORK THERE YOU WILL REGRET IT!! DONT LET THEM LIE TO YOU WITH THE PAY OF $10 A HOUR NOT WORTH IT
I FELT MISTREATED, FELT LIKE A SLAVE, THEY LOWERED MY SELF ESTEEM BY TELLING ME I DONT WORK HARD ENOUGH EVEN THOUGH I WAS THE FIRST ON TO FINISH.
THIS JOB SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE DEPT OF LABOR

Advice to Management

Fix Your Attitude care about your employees dont over do the staff be reasonable be fair try everybody equally and so on such a bad experience.

    Make more positions permanent, everyone should have a chance to keep their position.
