Hard work but fun
Fun place to work but very early starts and very demanding. Not bad pay and good benefits. All online training. Like most companies, a mixture of different types of management .

Exhausting
Nobody communicates or cooperates, and they don't pay well at all. Almost demanded me to work 60hr weeks with no overtime pay when I was a part-timer. The most toxic staff I have ever come across in my life. Upper management does not care for store management. They ignore away any issues until it’s bad and then it’s only on you.

A lot of demands, very little recognition
Difficult work environment. Shop can get crazy busy and there always trying to keep costs low meaning everyone struggles. A lot of pressure on managers, always seems to be some problem meaning extra hours or extra work with no pay. A lot expected to be done but very little thanks.
Cons
Unsociable and irregular hours. Monotonous stressful work and little opportunity to advance.

Long hours with heavy work!
Sexist, abusive and incompetent management! No support from management! Stressful environment!

Refuse to pay people for the hours worked means they actually pay well below minimum wage! Run by complete control freaks!

Lack of support
The Job has bonuses, however they often forget to pay you.
No support,trust and respect from the managers. Badly done rotas,short staffed on busy shifts and being expected to do many duties in the same time.Not being given time to train new people,polish spoken in front of other staff even managers do that. In general a very bad managed place.
Pros
Some foods are nice, good team
Cons
Pay your staff better, improve benefits, sort out discrimination!

3/5
LLEGUE a Londres en el 2012 y durante dos años trabaje para ellos.

Realmente la entrevista fue sencilla ,y el ambiente de trabajo fue bueno, te dan la oportunidad de ascender pero trabajas con mucha presión, al final me daba la impresión de ser un poco secta ,es decir para ascender tenías que vivir por y para pret .


La comida gratis para empezar en una ciudad como Londres es un top
Pros
Posibilidad de ascenso
Cons
Rollo secta

ready to leave!
With the lockdown during coronavirus I had some distance to make decision to leave pret. We are so exploited and used for profit. Pret was my worst experience in the industry.

Personally, the experience from working there was overall enjoyable. The team were extremely friendly and supportive.
The team were very supportive and friendly which was helpful as I had just started working there. The actual work I had to fulfil was stressful and fast paces but it was also relaxed at other times. I definitely learnt a lot of employable skills during my experience.
Pros
Team was very friendly, tasks were not too complicated, a lot of employable skills were learnt during my experience such as communication.
Cons
Working with customers can be challenging at times.
