    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekly pay, most employers are friendly and nice to work with

    Cons

    Too much stress for poor pay. They expect you to work like machines so if you’re not fast enough you are not worth it for them. Managers are abusive and take advantage of team members. No balance between life/work, you spend all the time in there. Overtime is not payed.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t give all the job to one person when the store has a ton of employees.

    I worked at Pret A Manger part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Job can be easy if working at front of house. Free lunch and paid breaks. Easy coffee calling system. It is nice to make someone's day by giving them a free hot drink.

    Cons

    Not much flexibility when working at the job, depending on your area you may be assigned to stand at the cashier all day. Pressure from managers to smile all day

    Advice to Management

    Customer service is important, but some people don't like to carry a conversation or ask question for such a short interaction.
