HQ Bullies

Link People don’t seem to get promoted unless you are a bully or belittle your team members. The place is toxic.

2020-01-05 HQ Customer Service Team review

Link  The company doesn’t support their employees and think that it is okay for their employees to belittle, bully and intimidate team members as well as ostracise them from the entire team. … the actual manager of the CS Team was lovely but everything was out of her hands…

Link “This place is what hell must be like.”


My own experience with Pret’s HQ was when HR used a Development Manager to gaslight me. She supposedly had a brother who died and was not discovered for 10 days in his flat, like my brother died and was 6 days not discovered.

Link to article: Lila Tighilt Warren and her Brother Zain ~~~ and ~~~ Lila Warren, David Carter, Clive Schlee. My full story with Pret is in an interview at the bottom audio player on a podcast based in California.

In a nutshell: Pret A Manger is a very toxic, corrupt and bullying company behind that “happy” facade.


Former CEO Clive Schlee’s legacy, Glassdoor:

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 two articles in the Scottish Left Review: 1. “Late Night Girl’s” Story with Pret and 2. Pushing Back Against Pret.
Thank you for reading/listening.
