Advice to Management

Its no wonder Pret are always employing staff. I haven't been working long but it isn't worth the hassle involved. Managers treat staff like idiots. The image of the happy enviroment is a joke. It would be good for the BBC or Dispatches to go under cover and work in a shop for a week to show the world what really goes on behind the scenes.
