    I worked at EAT full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free food at the end of the shift if you are closing and flexible hours. Specially if you are doing early mornings.

    Cons

    Poor management at area manager level. The pay is also very low. Customers can be demanding and rude. No real career progression.

    I worked at EAT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good opportunities to grow for the team if lucky enough to work for the right shop/area at the right time. Free food.

    Cons

    What started as a family business is now being run by a group of senior managers bullying their way into transforming the company into Pret. The team is expected to work unlimited numbers of hours, being paid peanuts and being given a hard time if refusing to do so. The company is clearly going south. It is not clear what the company is all about except a desperate attempt to make money copying competition. It seems pretty obvious that the lack of personality and originality is the reason why it doesn’t take off... who wants to go to the second rate version of a big brand? If people want Pret, they’ll go to Pret. The morale in the stores doesn’t help of course. Miserable, exhausted staff, working under pressure and fear to be the next one to go... which doesn’t seem to be a problem since an ex friend/colleague from Pret/Itsu will happily join to replace us.
