Again, I’ve got little time to expand, but a new Manager review on Glassdoor just got dropped on my lap.
“Not the kind and caring business it presents itself as to the outside world”
“I worked at Pret A Manger full-time for more than 3 years
Some amazing team members and staff who give their all and are wonderful to work with
Kind and hard working people don’t get recognised
Those willing to step on others make it to the top
Talk the talk but actually don’t live by the values they preach” Link
Nothing more to add!
Except, a similar review from a Team Member recently, quote:
“Not as they present it”
“Too much stress for poor pay. They expect you to work like machines so if you’re not fast enough you are not worth it for them. Managers are abusive and take advantage of team members. No balance between life/work, you spend all the time in there. Overtime is not payed.
Advice to Management
Don’t give all the job to one person when the store has a ton of employees.” Link
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 starve and 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.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by The Adam Paradox, and wrote an article in the
Scottish Left Review.
Thank you for reading/listening.
