    I have been working at Pret A Manger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food during meals. Free coffee all day. No need to wash uniform since they got a service that does it. Weekly pay. 401K and insurance for full timers. Pret party i guess.

    Cons

    Unreliable hours. Minimum wage. No Holiday pay at all, just 8 hours of PTO AFTER 6 MONTHS. No actual training, everyone is as lost as a recent hire. FAVOURITISM leading to lazy employees getting all the hours and good shifts. Night/closing crews hours suck, they have to do every thing morning people dont do and get on trouble if something is missed. Meanwhile morning people do the bare minimum and get praised and bonuses for secret/mystery shopper.

    When the Irish interns come for two months, they get 40 hours. While actual employees get their hours cut for two months.

    Pret parties are an excuse to get drunk on the companies dime while pretending that stores arent a dirty mess.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your managers responsible and actually do health checks in shops because my shop has had cockroaches and ceiling leaks and busted ACs and no help from upper management at all.

    Fired people, dont let your actual hard working employees quit, for NCNS and repeated offenses.

    Hold thiefs accountable! Many of my coworkers take food home without wasting it outside of what os is permitted like juices and fruits. Or take multiple meals home after already having their lunch meal.

    Promote the ones that work hard and have experience, not just the ones that are friends with upper management.

    PORTION CONTROL in th kitchen. There are no standards upheld. Everyone just does what they want in the kitchen. And take complaints seriously!
