    Interview

    I applied March 27, 2017 and got called for an interview on March 28, 2017 for a one on one interview and I was very scared not knowing the questions that would be asked so I did a quick briefing on the company before I headed to HR located at the back of the store.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Smile a lot and try to crack a joke or two. Hiring process (including applying) took about four days. Was called in for an interview at the recruitment center in NYC. Everyone was very nice & knowledgeable. I was interviewed by a recruitment manager and, the interview went well, so I was then sent to another location the next day for a 2nd interview. This is standard procedure, don't freak out. I ended up meeting with two separate managers that next day and, after discussion, they decided to give me the job. Usually they'll have you shadow an employee before making the decision to hire but in rare cases they'll make the decision without that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I went in to the recruitment office. I had people get interviewed before me that had no appointment. I guess they over looked my name and the fact that I sat in front of them for an hour. There was a second interview, where I met with the manager of where I could be working, it was like a shadow day and they basically want you to work for free. They rely on the employees to say whether you should be hired or not, which is very very dumb for many reasons..so it's like your being interviewed by the employees too. the manager could of cared less that I was there, she never ask for my resume and even when I asked her did she want it she gave no answer, I should have left then.She was so awkward during the interview with her laughing after I responded to questions. Not sure why I wasn't hired, waste of my time; I should have kept my first mind and not have went. A few employees look like they didn't want to be there. And i didn't know plastic bag soup classified as natural.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Started with an interview at the recruitment center. That part of the interview went great. I was told that they wanted me to start shadowing team members immediately so they sent me to another store. I was shadowing 3 people. The first woman was great, upbeat and provided me with a lot of info on her job. She even quizzed me at the end! The other 2 had very little to say, even when i asked questions. It was also pretty uncomfortable being in the kitchen where everyone was speaking Spanish amongst themselves. The girl i was shadowing in the kitchen wasnt really interested in me being there but socializing with everyone else. After that i was called into the office and was told that I would not be getting the job after they talked with the other employees. Not exactly sure why I didnt get the job or what they were looking for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Pret A Manger (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Two interviews: A one on one with a manager, then you have what they call "shop interview" where you talk to the employees in the store and get a feel of the work.

    I don't understand what happened in MY case because I got offered the job then was told by manager to apply to a different location because of my "availability" and had to go through some type of interrogation with the other manager and didnt get the job. Never applying here again. The other workers were cool though.
