Working in a Pret shop


All work and no play makes for a dull life. As a Pret team member, you’ll not only work hard and make the best food and coffee (using amazing, natural ingredients) but you’ll spend time with energetic people, engage with customers and have lots of fun too.


Our starting salary is $10 an hour (in NY, Boston, & DC) and $9.50 an hour (in Chicago). There’s also a chance to make a weekly bonus.

Pret people deserve (and receive) as many benefits as we can possibly give, including:

- Free lunch & coffee
- Discounts
- Legendary Parties
- Social Events
- Paid time off


Our recruitment center is located at 11 West 42nd Street directly inside our shop. We’re open every Tuesday-Thursday from 10am to 4pm. Come and visit or give us a call at 646-861-0441.
