    Pros

    Good people once you get to know them, it really feels like a family.
    Very good management, they don't particular shout at you, but firmly correct you if you made a mistake.
    Very nice atmosphere and environment to work in.

    Cons

    Bonus system is a little harsh, but understandable I guess? It is devastating for the person emotionally if they were responsible for losing the bonus for the whole team!
    People who have an earlier shift tend to have it easier than the person closing. There is a massive workload pushed on to the person who close the store. Yet Pret is unwilling to put more than one people at the front and one person at the kitchen to clean up and close!
