    I have been working at Pret A Manger

    Pros

    Money is better than competitors, paid breaks, free food while at work, and good 50% discount when not at work.

    Cons

    Manager at my shop treated everyone really poorly. Expect you to stay longer to complete your job for free when not enough time is given. Constantly missing hours from extra shifts taken. Have to ask every week to see if they have repaid those hours and in some cases takes months to chase back.

    Advice to Management

    When a current staff member quits Pret, the head office should find out why they have left via a survey or questionaire. If they did this in my shop the manager would have been sacked a long time ago.
