    I have been working at Pret A Manger

    Pros

    I have arrived in the UK to study last fall, and so far it's the best paid job I had (if you count the mystery sh bonus). Everything is extremelly clean, and the food is indeed as they say, fresh and healthy. The paid 30 mins break with free lunch is also a great nice perk. You also get 50% off on all Pret food, anywhere.

    Cons

    Pret seems perfect if you throw it a quick look. Great pay, great food, great team mates, everyone's so happy and friendly all the time... did you know that we have to? The "perfect Pret" standards state that the Pret employee is happy all the time, never drepressed. Not kidding, it's printed in our locker. Sometimes it can be challenging maintaining a natural smile on my face for 8 hours straight. Now, I should mention...

      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.
