Food Preparation Worker | Washington, DC | Nov 20, 2019
Management is terrible
The management is a complete mess, pret used to be a great place to work for but after they changed the operations manager everything became a disaster
Team Member | Strand, IA | Mar 12, 2019
too loud, too fast, too stressful, manager is shouting, not many team members, worked more then 50 hours all the time, team member calling sick all the time, not enough people, they cut benefits, not enough money, nightmare place to work. Brexit is my way home.
Prosnothing. I don't like the food anymore.
Consbadly managed, hard work for minimum pay, depressing.
Customer Service Representative | Chicago, IL | Oct 3, 2019
Management is lacking
My typical work day consist of Ops Manager yelling and cursing at my manager. Ops manager says he wants things done a certain way and when that way is executed he Decides to change his mind and say that’s not what he wanted from them. Managers cry in their offices because of how stressed they are. You can’t get a raise unless you have it good with the ops or they see you doing more than you are qualified to do. Managers are secretly looking for new jobs right now to get out of Pret. It’s a very stressful environment with people who are lazy.

Customer Service Representative | New York, NY | Jun 5, 2019
Nice people, tedious work
It was so hard to learn all the products in order to use the registers at a fast pace. You are doing the job of three different positions because they are low on staff. Friendly workers but tough around breakfast and lunch.
ConsEverything else
Prep Cook | New York, NY | Sep 7, 2019
Its ok
Team leads has favorites, cool place depends on location. I was at Rockefeller center location very mixy in the culture, made the best out of it if you like to work then it's a job for you
ProsFree selective food
ConsHad to be there at 4 in the morning to start the shift
Administration Manager | Washington, DC | Apr 21, 2019
Productive and amusing workplace and environment for employees and customers.
Upon entering a day at work, I would first speak to my team and management. Then I would change in my work uniform and clock in. As soon as I head to the store floor, I would check the selection and make sure everything is neat and organized. I would then assist the line of customers and when there is down time, I would clean and organize as necessary. This would continue for the entire shift as I assist customers with refunds, disputes, or any other problems with customer service. At the end of the shift, I would delegate closing tasks to staff members in order to ensure everything is closed and cleaned properly. I would soon take all of the registers to the office and count the cash and the safe to make sure all monies are accounted for.
Retail Assistant Manager | New York, NY | Oct 15, 2019
Nice coffee shop with potential for growth

Conslong hours, lots of labor

ProsGreat team but burned out from too much stress

Do a research about them & be honest

-Be yourself and be honest, and also please be professional as soon as walk you walk in the door.
