Terrible workplace, very uncomfortable atmosphere, lazy managers
Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) –  New York, NY16 April 2019
I worked only a few months and hated every moment of it. At first I was excited to start my job as I heard about how pret values customers. But than I understood why, we have to display fake smiles and happyness and it made me depressed. I wanted to advance my career but the managers I worked with made difficult because they only chose those they favored. Pret is not how they sell themselves to the public and new workers. I recommend to join a union asap! I left pret and dont want to work in this type of environment again. Better off working in lower paid for less stress. Terrible company.
Pros
free lunch breaks
Cons
lazy managers, toxic environment, too many hours having to remind managers to pay for overtime, badly paid

Neurotic environment - a living nightmare
Team Member - Part Time (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London13 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.
Pros
the food is nice and free at shifts
Cons
neurotic managment - harsh and stress all around - terrible workhours tiring and no fun
