They expect you to follow six key points of production and have passion in making items. When you follow this they then moan that you are to slow and need to hurry up as everyone in a Pret kitchen says choppy choppy which is the worst thing beause it only makes you less motivated.

Quit hiring friends and then only give them the hours so many other people need to make ends meet right now.
Leaders will work you endlessly and make you feel bad if you called out.

They won't help but expect you to help them and tell you all of the things you done wrong but they won't compliment you if you do something right.

People always called out, they never had anyone to cover shifts, terrible overall attitude.

Avoid.
Cons
Management, pay, long hours, cramped staff area

At first you're told that the company values you, this is definitely not the case. Pret is not trying to build a better community, they only value numbers. You will never feel supported or appreciated, you can easily be replaced by someone for less pay.
Pros
Location, customers are nice which makes a difference, some colleagues who become friends
Cons
GMs do not care, lack of training, double-standards
