    I worked at Pret A Manger full-time

    Pros

    Clocking out and going home

    Cons

    My manager is in a bad mood everyday. I have very few hours. I am capable of giving my best and give my best at work but it is not appreciated. The hardest part of my job is staying in position were you are treated unfairly and disrespected. I learned that I need to work with employees that have high energy and that are hard workers like myself. The most enjoyable part of working at Pret is clocking out.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time

    Pros

    Food and coffee while on shift

    Cons

    I feel humiliated all the time and treated like a slave. I love to cook at home but at pret I'm treated like I can't even make a sandwich. Favouritism of certain team members who make friends with leader.

    Advice to Management

    It is too stressful to work at pret. Stop humiliating workers.

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

    Pros

    decent lunches, 50% off when purchasing outside of work. It's ok for a few weeks to get started in a job but not long term

    Cons

    I felt like an outsider in my own country. I admit the European workers are the fastest hardest workers but felt excluded as I couldn't speak their language. The work is exhausting, loud, dirty. If you don't fit in you are an outsiders. Management seem stressed and treat certain team members better as others. Not for me, not for british. Pret expects too much for low pay. It was good to see how Pret works, but I'm disappointed didn't expect it to be so hard and stressful

    Advice to Management

    Slow down!! Train your managers! They look unhappy and stressed. I kept a low key to not become a target and just left. I have support to travel to see other options in my career choice. Take a good look on how to approach leadership in shops.
