    Pros

    Flexibility in working shifts. Lots of free food at the end of the day. The meal allowance allows you to get free lunch during your shift, however read more about this in the cons.

    Cons

    No one cares about you, even if you get that impression, forget it! Especially people in charge like head office. Break unpaid. £6 allowance guarantees you a sandwich if you're lucky because the prices are expensive. They hire EVERYONE and I mean everyone. You don't speak English? Fine with us! You don't seem to smile or be interested in anything? Fine with us! They promote a lot and it might seem like a good thing but it's not, because sometimes you find a manager that knows less than you and is not able to be a manager. No way of getting a bonus! Only if your shop earns a lot of money and they like, and that surely doesn't depend on you.

    Pros

    Free lunch Provided - I cannot think of anything else good to say

    Cons

    The business has 2 clear areas of focus: , 1)to reduce its weekly labour spend, this unfortunately, is to the detriment of customer service and team welfare and well being 2) Pret, so focussed on what its main competitor is doing, no clear strategy of its own The senior management team create a culture of fear and pressure, everyone is afraid to speak out and have an opinion

    Pros

    free lunch, discount ...

    Cons

    Company totally forgot, they need people to run the business!!! There is so much pressure from area managers down to general managers down to staff... No support at all from AM, moment you speak out, your life will become hell. No motivation, no recognition ... Managers working too many overtimes, not paid at all ... Turnover of people in company is very high, everyone with clear mind running away ... This makes it even harder, as we just ending up with training new people ....
