    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I saw a post on craigslist, so i applied. I was called back the next day for an interview.
    I went to their location in 42nd st and i was honestly impressed. Everything looked so professional, and the lady that called me seemed really nice. She asked me to fill out an application on their computer and when i was finished i was interviewed by another lady. I feel like she had her mind made up before even talking to me. She seemed uninterested the whole time, which made me not really care about my answers. I realized that the girl interviewed before me when into the office with another guy, and was filling out papers. In my opinion she was hired. So when the lady who was interviewing me said she'd call to let me know, i knew what that meant. I was never called back.

    Information Technology Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Was contacted through a recruiting firm. Interviewed with HR, went very well. She was very well versed with company culture and painted a good picture of what to expect working at Pret. Was asked to come in and meet the VP of Finance \ IT, who was much more Finance and very little IT. He asked questions about how to solve their current-day issues. The VP of HR left the company just after the interview and the recruiter's response regarding my candidacy didn't seem to make sense (clear to me that they confused their candidates).

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were fair, nothing particularly challenging or difficult. Notable question asked by VP of Finance was "What would those who worked for you say about you if they were asked?".   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Very professional, quick and efficient. Three rounds of interviews with different leaders from the company. Many questions are asked from work to what do you do for fun. Everyone is great and makes it easy to relax and be yourself. Ask questions and do not be afraid to talk pay, benefits and bonus, get the right picture or you might be disappointed afterwords. Ask for as much as you feel right+ some.

    Negotiation

    Negioate for more in your base salary!! The bonus structure is based off of your base salary PLUS, you most likely will not get a raise and to achieve a bonus of any "decent" size per quarter you will need to work 60+ hrs a week. You will not make the bonus they tell you that you can make, almost guaranteed.
