      Pros

      Lovely manager and all colleagues. Makes working there a nice experience.

      Cons

      Quite a hard work. If you start at 5 am there is a lot of heavy lifting as you need to sort out delivery. After a while back pain stars to be a normal everyday thing that no one should get for a minimum pay.

      Good pay and flexibility - but too many demands

      Pros

      Pret is a great job to have if you don't commit too much. It is especially worthwhile for university or college students part time. The pay is good, great flexibility but your experience is very much dependent on having a good team and manager.

      Cons

      There's a lot of pressure and accountability with minimal training and support. Particular as you go up the ranks. The added pressure of your weekly pay being dependent on a mystery review makes it difficult. Kitchen staff are also unable to experience the benefits that come with Mystery Shopper bonuses as they are not customer facing which could reduce motivation.
