Great customer service willing to go extra mile for customer satisfaction and they donate their food at end of day instead of reselling products. Food always fresh

They company completely forbade you off your first amendments rights to free speech, continues need to fake a smile and creating distrust between employees. The casual need to lie about hiring the best people and over working people, while yet constantly asking for more. The constant support of racial favoritism specially downtown area. The employees are busy bodies and constant degrading, objectifying and Mal-intended means to cause other problems. As for the management, they are highly focus on the desire to ignore people's request and fore-go only the companies need (Slave mentality much).
Prejudice, bias, no respect for confidentiality, stealing of vacation time and worst of all management themselves break their own policies. Did i mention, social media of employee is also monitored (German Stasi police anyone)

It was okay could of been better. They will let you know how replaceable you are.. if you work there be careful. The customers are nice but the managers and general managers aren’t that helpful.

To be honest there’s nothing wrong with this company in my eyes , everything about the company from the staff to the guests is an amazing experience. Only thing I’d say is you’d get a better experience earlier in the day rather towards the evening which is kind of disappointing.

One of the enjoyable part of this job is meeting new exciting people. I also enjoy making people’s day on a daily basis. The hardest part is management. A typical day consist of being energetic and bringing good, happy vibes to share with crew and customers.

Every position at Pret gets paid a different amount hot chefs get paid more than team members yet as a team member I was made to hot chef, be a team member trainer, and an A team member, and was only being paid minimum wage whereas those key roles get paid more money. I was harassed by a male and female coworkers who were dating and threatened me when I went to HR I was suspended and terminated. Wasn’t treated fairly at all.

This job was easy and not stressful. Everyone was a team and worked as one. We would have breaks and lunch. We were able to get lunch and breakfast for free at the time I was working there. It was so cool working for this company.

The coworkers are very demanding and rude. The managers don't fix issues with coworkers properly which causes a hostile work environment. Labor is not spread evenly between team members, trainers, and leaders.

Great place to work if you want to move up to higher ranks at a fast pace, and if you can deal with the tasks at hand that require a tremendous amount of attention. In addition to this, kitchens are always busy, and the most stressful. Flexible hours depending on your manager.
Pros
Free lunches, healthcare, 401k
Cons
Fast paced, high maintenance
