Pret undervalues employees, not enough to survive. Wrong people made redundent. Manager rip off customers, we had to lie all the time about subscibtion.
Pros
Literally no pros for working here. Some of the people I worked with were cool.
Cons
Team members are promoted based on personality or looks, not competency or hard work.

Poor treatment from the management. The staff are not looked after as should happen in a business. Promises are made but not kept. HR was not helpful. High staff turnover.
