I worked at Pret A Manger full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Pay is good. That's it. The food is okay, fancy app to track your time punches and pay. Nice and clean uniforms every day.

Cons

Training sucks, people are treated like crap. Upper management do not care about you, will never recommend this company. Bottom line as a British company they treat employees as machines, they don't care about how they feel, expect too much for too little. Horrible environment

Advice to Management

Treat people with respect and appreciate their hard work. Stop using your British mentality when it comes to deal with people. You're people are horrible at this.
