Pret A Manger looks nice from the outside but when you actualy work there you experience a very differnet picture to what they promise. The pay is very bad for the amount of work and micromanaging were doing. Work for another company were you will be treated humane.

Long hours, unpaid breaks, the pay to effort ratio is terrible, only working with one other member of staff is hard when you have a busy shop on weekend, short closing time and a lot of other things to deal with, and then getting highlighted if something wasn't done properly. All the staff are overworked and underpaid, they get nothing for working hard / well. I haven't met any happy people in the company, they're either stuck there because they need money or haven't found another job yet.

Working at Pret A Manger teaches you a lot of things. For me it boosted my confidence and social skills, I also learned many new things. It’s something I’m glad I experienced.
