front of house leader (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – February 6, 2019
I work in pret for a couple of years and can't figure out why it's so stressful. Job in itself is not difficult to understand but managers treats you like idiots. I wanted to go on the job ladder was a team leader but was always blamed for everything even manager mistake. Team members who where lazy made friend with manager and get promoted. I was not trained but expected to do job perfect. I worked in many shops because they always have no team members. Teams have no respect for managers who are not helping and don't care. I go back to my country where I found job. All I learnd in pret was to try to cope with stress but i don't want this kind of stress again. I was a fun person before pret but now I'm just tired and depressed. I can not recoment pret. To much stress for nothing and bad paid. Better work in lesser paid with less stress.
some nice colleges, free food but I can't eat much as I'm vegan, and to much cross contamination in kitchen
bad managers in most shop I worked, dirty work kitchen don't wash hands, no real training, blamed for everything, no support, bad paid
