I worked long enough to deserve a promotion. I worked 60-70hour weeks filling in for missing team members particularl in the kitchen. I decided to quit, Pret is a terrible company with so many lies and promises just to have you work to excaustion. The team deserves better then this

I have worked in different stores in Pret and the company follows high standards from food preparations and employees behaviours. Mostly the teams are very friendly and collaborative. It maybe demanding in busy time and if you do your best you won’t have any complaints. Almost all Managers in Pret are very kind and flexible. They look after the team members and company got good benefits. I loved to work there.
Pros
Kind managers, food allowances
Cons
Might start early if fully flexible as 5 am.

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
