    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Pret A Manger

    Pros

    Good pay Free meals Traveling Work Parties Training For all levels of employment

    Cons

    Favoritism with management Hiring is based on looks Long hours expected No work life balance All push with no support No integrity A lot of show and dance for support center and president/ceo

    Advice to Management

    Your employees will respect you if you offer genuine support. It is all about what your shop looks like when the CEO is in town. Stop favoriting managers, no one respects you for it.

    "It Was an Okay Headache"

      I worked at Pret A Manger part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Lots of free food, free coffee, they work around your schedule, and the pay is pretty good. Manager was awesome, but depends on the location.

      Cons

      Between grumpy coworkers, grumpy customers, and homeless people constantly destroying the bathroom, this place was just a headache. Definitely a job for morning people who don't mind hectic, robotic work that eats away at your soul one day at a time. The turnover rate was ridiculously high, and for good reason.

      Advice to Management

      No idea, good luck.
