Team Leader/Supervisor (Current Employee) – london – 24 March 2019
If it wasn't for brexit i might still be stuck in pret. the job is so hard and stressfull!!! the pay is not good although pret keeps bragging that they pay better but it's not living wage. there is never enough team members we have to work double and pick up the mess manager leaves behind. bad training. bad managment. not worth at all. if a leader its worse than team member. don't recomend.
some of the food is ok and free nice hardworking team
Team Member - Part Time (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 13 May 2019
dodn't know what it is with Pret, I worked in many restaurants and was recruited by a friend in management but worked with managers in different shops that are neurotic and driven with fear. every one is nervous all the time. I changed my shifts to evening and weekend to have more space to breath
the mystery shopper pressure is too much - every little detail is a problem - your hard work is lost by the smallest mistake. I still work but have other option now there are serios labour issues and I look for option of unions.
the food is nice and free at shifts
neurotic managment - harsh and stress all around - terrible workhours tiring and no fun
