I went for 2 days and got the job. The baristas for some reason act like management and hurl abuse at you. I was then sent to another store in bath where no one had any idea what was going on and when I asked if i could get my inhalor more abuse was shouted at me. I left then and there, when I told the original manager what had happened she more or less said I was lying. bunch of weirdos

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
