Quote of the day: “The training should be more about encouraging people than shouting and shaming them. … it has been the most stressful job I have had in a couple of years.”
Dear Pret Leadership,
why are you doing this to your staff?
You need more money?!
I have a few pennies in my purse
I have some water to quench your thirst
I have more patience to help your patients
who are left behind after the grind
on a psychiatric ward
What about those who want to end their life
while you continue to thrive
in your millions and billions
and whatever …illions that are left
Are you enjoying yourself?
I hope so.
Life is short
Be kind to yourself and to those who make it happen

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
An incomplete list on what other Pret staff say about Pret’s bullying environment: Caught in the Act Bullying at Pret.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review.
Thank you for reading/listening.
