    Great way to start working for new HS grads if no prior work experience

    Pros

    Besides the various opportunities to climb up the ladder, working as a team member at Pret is a really nice way to start one's work experience. Pret teaches you to be a fast yet efficient worker, allows you to hone your communication skills, and offers flexible shifts. Had the opportunity to have my hourly salary increase within the first 6 months of employment.

    Cons

    It is not so much the company's problem, but there are days when the store you're stationed at will be severely understaffed so you are forced to take on roles that aren't part of your job description. But it's a great way to learn the ropes of all Pret positions.
