Since there is a new CEO in this company Pret is just going deeper and deeper. Team are stressing a lot, lots of incompetent poeple in management, which is also extra stress for the staff. They dicreased the minimum contracted hours, and also cancel a lot of benefits. Sended away thousands of people, without checking who they are and what they done for this company. Now they calling back them, but noone wants to work for them anymore.
Such a shame you are Pret.

They want you to work like a machine 24/7 with no time off for personal life, they don't care if you have children you, have to work like a horse! Managers are really bad mannered, not professional at all, bullying you all the time, they choose favorite people and some of the managers don't even speak English! That's a worst company avoid it if possible . Honestly I don't know who is hiring them for the manager role.

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.

Things in Pret are changing with new management. They are changing policies to cover their back.It depend on your shop management if you are lucky or not.I ve been working in many shops,where the atmosphere was amazing. Where ai work now,it is a disaster:too much stress,for everyone. MANAGER is ...like this they ruin everything. THey only think on their bonuses

There's alot to learn to be an efficient team member at Pret a Manger.The work is fast paced and the company has very high standards but all of this in a fun kind of atmosphere.
As there is alot to learn, the work itself isn't too hard, the people are nice and you get to wear jeans and listen to music while you work.

That's what working at Pret a Manger is like, in my opinion

Mi tienda se encontraba en el aeropuerto y hay que tener en cuenta que los horarios no son como las tiendas que puedas encontrarte a pie de calle, además mi tienda era 24h.
El ambiente laboral muy agradable y los compañeros geniales, muy buen rollo y trabajo en equipo muy bueno.

Promocionas rápido y hay mucho terrenos que explorar, "barista", "Hot chef", cada Pret tiene su cocina donde se elaboran los sandwich, son muy exigentes en la calidad del producto y más en la elaboración del mismo, hay que tener muchísimo cuidado con los alégrenos.

Es una empresa que piensa mucho en sus trabajadores, el sueldo es realmente bueno, para ser una cafetería y ademas hay bonus y "Friday Night" que corren a cuenta de la empresa, lo que es muy buen momento para establecer una relación con los compañeros fuera del trabajo.

Busy environment,stress,happy team,customers,overall ok,but sometimes situations come and you can’t control them. Shops are always busy,shifts start very early on the morning. Teams are amazing,working super hard every single minute of the day.

Pret always says they pay more then the competition - YET WE WORK LIKE DONKEYS and have to run after our money. Managers ALWAYS 'forget' to pay overtime

Pay the LIVING WAGE and allow a UNION!
Pros
Nothing
Cons
No union - no living wage - slavery work!!
