Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 15 February 2019
Pret does not deserve even 1 star. I regret having worked there. Pret looks good from the front but once you wirk thete it's a lot of stress and dushonest managers. I worked in different shops and found most managers and leaders in general do theirown thing. They demand that teams do the impossibke, work to exhaustion and get blamed when things go wrong. I suffer depression now after having worked there. I was very hopeful whenI started because Pret looks so good from the front. Don't believe the hype,they will exploit and it costs your mental health.
free food, but every restaurant gives free food. there is no other posituve for me

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
