Horrible but pays well

If you want to be worked to the bone with absolutely zero praise for your efforts and suffering then this is the job for you. Amazing in the beginning - showered with benefits and entitlements and opportunities to advance. Terrible once you see how horribly mismanaged and micromanaged the company is. Zero care for human beings and nothing but boosting sales and company growth.

Pret A Manger (Former Employee) - London
They just push you like a robot and, they give time to make sandwichs (unrealistic time). They count the minutes that you spend in the toilet. Long hours and sometimes work 12 days in a row.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Stressful. No work-balance.

Team Member/Team Leader (Former Employee) - Glasgow
Too many team leaders being rewarded, while staff members who carry out tasks are not. Cleaning tasks not carried out well enough, not enough attention paid to detail
Pros
Free lunch / drinks
Cons
Individuals not rewarded for hard work / effort
