    Pros

    I was working at Pret for 3 months only because I just couldn't take it anymore and it wasn't only me that was thinking the same ! The only two good things: -Paid breaks -Free Food

    Cons

    -Team Leader who was working with me during the weekends (I was a part timer) was very rude to me , calling me stupid etc. , making me feel like I know nothing about anything and putting me down all the TIME. (with manager around she was changing into this nice bubbly lovely person and everyone knows why) -There is a a HUGE pressure on having a BUZZ in the shop, which made me feel like a clown and also in my opinion made very fake atmosphere in the shop. -You have to complete countless duties (especially when closing) in very very short period of time and I got shouted at if I didn't make it (for example: clean and mop the floor, bins, wash trays, clean toilet and chemical room all in HALF AN HOUR - still has to be perfectly clean) -Bonus that you are getting could've be taken away for many stupid reasons so don't be fooled into thinking that if you are qualified team member you are safe ! -Pressure on the Mystery Shopper and getting it 100% correctly if you serve him/her (if you miss it you are loosing your bonus) -You have to FLY around in order to prepare sandwitches and everything else in a way they want it and they want it to be PICTURE PERFECT at the same time. And I also ''love'' how the company itself tries so hard to create this friendly enviroment for the employers by putting these sweet posters around etc. etc. when in reality it is very miserable and stressfull place to work for !
