The higher you move up the more problems you encounter. The expectations versus the pay do not match. They expect perfection at all times, sometimes it's just not possible.

Assistant Manager AMK (Former Employee) - Various shops in soho, strand & city.
As an assistant AMK I was contracted to 42.5 Hours per weeks , but the reality we were all doing 50+ hours, week in week out. the extras hours are unpaid and not declared ( ghost labour) and if you complaint you're a trouble maker and and you will get left out of future promotion.Pret has reached it peak and now it's just falling apart.
Pros
Team discount ( gold card 50%)
Cons
Gangs like culture.

ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) - Manchester
I loved working for Pret, sadly challenging times during Covid-19, meaning lots of redundancies. I won't score on that because I don't think it's fair. The company before this 'plandemic' had amazing benefits, could always grown within company. Of course you get good and bad days.
Pros
Career growth
