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

      Pros

      Allows you to move around and speak to clients and team. Always doing something (or you should be), so time goes by pretty fast. Good opportunity for promotions, as long as you work for it. Co-workers at my location really enjoyed the work, or at least showed that to people which is what matters.

      Cons

      Other locations were filthy. Seriously... I worked at a relatively new location with staff that enjoyed themselves... but I was sent to a couple other locations at times if they needed help and ooooh was it a different story. There were some seriously gross violations, health and cleanliness wise, as well as duty and customer service wise.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to employees if we say there is something wrong going on... there definitely is.

              I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time

              Pros

              Various bonuses for providing excellent service, free lunch, room for growth for those willing to strive for excellence

              Cons

              ...unless you just get lucky and know somebody, then you can do a terrible job. Standards have dropped in recent years, growing animosity between team members and even their managers, training new employees is very sporadic and not everyone is trained properly, management standards have also lowered, if you're a manager, good luck trying to have a life.

              Advice to Management

              You guys really need to start training people by following a system, not however and whenever you feel like it. Also, keep on your people. Make sure everyone is working as a team and make sure everyone can respect you, or else everybody will gossip about you and give you the side eye.
