Pret A Manger Employee Review
Very B*tchy team in the customer services team
I came across some homophobic bullies within the customer services team.

Upon trying to put in a grievance after months of being bullied and having documented it all, they disregarded this and implemented a 'mediation meeting' where we were unable to discuss what had even been said and done to me. The day of when the meeting was meant to be happening I was informed it wouldn't be happening because the other party who I put the grievance in about didn't want to do it and no further action was taken.

This used to be a great place to work and mostly the people are great people but becoming more and more corporate. The benefits aren’t that great you might get free lunch but good luck trying to get a pay increase or even paid fairly for your level. People don’t seem to get promoted unless you are a bully or belittle your team members. The place is toxic.
