    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Pret A Manger full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity for bonuses and advancement (although the best one for the job is often not the one promoted in a timely manner). The company promotes a very lively, social environment.

    Cons

    The management plays favorites more often than not. Also, if you are overweight, older, or unattractive you can forget about even getting past the interview stage (exception often made for relatives of said favorites or management). Key roles and shift leaders must have open availability, which makes it impossible to have other employment. Overtime isn't allowed often, and managers often send employees home early if it...

    Advice to Management

    Act a little more like management and a little less like the employees. I worked in 4 different shops and the song and dance was the same in each one.

    "It Was an Okay Headache"

      Doesn't Recommend

      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.
