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

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.

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.

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.

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.
