The management can be poor sometimes, they tend to change the manager at the store a lot. Also, they put a lot of pressure on you to make the production on time and take customer's orders quickly even if the staff is short. However, you will work well if there is enough staff to do the job. The staff is very supportive and the atmosphere is good. People are kind and friendly but each store is different. I liked working there because I learned a lot of things and I made good friends. Due to the pandemic, I was put on a furlough period but they paid me several weeks when they closed the store. Pret A Manger is a good and responsible company.
They company completely forbade you off your first amendments rights to free speech, continues need to fake a smile and creating distrust between employees. The casual need to lie about hiring the best people and over working people, while yet constantly asking for more. The constant support of racial favoritism specially downtown area. The employees are busy bodies and constant degrading, objectifying and Mal-intended means to cause other problems. As for the management, they are highly focus on the desire to ignore people's request and fore-go only the companies need (Slave mentality much). Prejudice, bias, no respect for confidentiality, stealing of vacation time and worst of all management themselves break their own policies. Did i mention, social media of employee is also monitored (German Stasi police anyone)
So as I come in the morning I turn on all the Equipment , I unpackage the fruit, brew the coffees , break down the boxes, take customers, make sure everything’s running
I looking for new opportunities and gan more experience. At this moment I lost being a manager and I love my employee. But I need to work somewhere closer. And with more pay.
To be honest there’s nothing wrong with this company in my eyes , everything about the company from the staff to the guests is an amazing experience. Only thing I’d say is you’d get a better experience earlier in the day rather towards the evening which is kind of disappointing.
Help us improve!

One of the enjoyable part of this job is meeting new exciting people. I also enjoy making people’s day on a daily basis. The hardest part is management. A typical day consist of being energetic and bringing good, happy vibes to share with crew and customers.
Short breaks, not a competitive pay
Every position at Pret gets paid a different amount hot chefs get paid more than team members yet as a team member I was made to hot chef, be a team member trainer, and an A team member, and was only being paid minimum wage whereas those key roles get paid more money. I was harassed by a male and female coworkers who were dating and threatened me when I went to HR I was suspended and terminated. Wasn’t treated fairly at all.
great benefits but recently company changed dramatically, it used to be people orientated company and valued your opinion, now its just profit profit and profit. no more investment in proper training
no life when you work for Pret
I wish I can go back to my old job. I learn a lot from this job and I hate that I life it. I was moving up at this job in only 8m and I know if I was there I would be something hire. Thank you for the opportunity. P. S can I have my job back. 💙💙🙏🙏
management is disrespectful, they fire people when they are having rough times in life even if they talk to a manager about it , i was penalized for calling out for a funeral. people who were stealing still work there but call out & youre fired.
short breaks, breaks start at 10 AM !
