    I worked at Pret A Manger

    Pros

    - Better salary than McDonalds or Costa as long as you keep your fake smile up - Interiors look pretty - Monthly Pret Party - Highly Predictable mystery shopper (free bonus) - There are many career paths you can take if you decide to stay for * 50% discount on food

    Cons

    - Staff with more experience cuts corners on Sanitary rules because otherwise it is impossible to finish your batch on time. - The coffee calling system is broken. During busy times it is nearly impossible to keep up with the orders without hating everyone around you. - after finishing your job at 1am be ready for your 7am shift - stay longer than your shift requires, because your lazy team leader can not close the...

    "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.
