Bullying at work

The manager doesn’t care about you. They have some favourites people and just care what they do. I worked in a racist place where also the assistant manager was racist. The company’s policies are good but the people who work there are very bad people.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Bad environmental at work

Not a fun, but deluded company

If you are a young person looking for your first job to get some experience and money, join Pret, for a couple of months. If you are not, trust me, you can find something better. Pret doesn’t value their employees whatever they’d want the public to believe. You will be trading your health and self respect for a near minimum wage. There are no raises unless you get a promotion, and there are only two steps from where you start before you hit manager level. So basically you could work for pret 20 years and, theoretically, get a little more than a pound more than someone who started one month ago. They will pressure you to work for free ( start early, not take full breaks), and if you complain about anything, your only option is to leave, they make it that bad for you. If you decide to join Pret, you will meat some nice people, but I have never met anyone who would have regretted leaving the company. So, make your own conclusions.

Pros

Easy to join

Cons

No life work balance, bad pay for what they want from you, upper management despise peasants (their employees), you will learn next to nothing

Not worth the hustle

Pret has gone from a great employer providing good money and benefits such as food on shift and training to treating employees like dogs and doing everything to fight the competition but a cost being employees wellbeing. You're definitely not paid enough for everything they require. They also stopped paying for breaks

Cons

customers, bad management, cutting wages

Depends on manager really

Used to be very good company in this sector to work for, after cuts due to pandemic it's just like any other in this sector. A lot depends on a manager, one can like you and you have easier life, then they change and you can get someone trying to get rid of you. Leaders are badly underpaid comparing to responsibilities

Pros

Staff food

Cons

Understaffed, no paid brakes, managers caring only about sales
