Workplace Bullying_An Interview with an Ex-Pret Employee

      Today's podcast hosts a special guest Late Night Girl. Due to the hardships in her personal life, work became another source of hardship to what was already a difficult time. You will learn exactly what bullying in the workplace looks like from her story and how you can overcome and deal with these troubling matters.  
     After interviewing LNG, her thoughts and the way she spoke was with complete sincerity. I first learned most from her blog and chatted with her via email for a few days and couldn't wait to hear more. Let's just say that despite all the blogs, the emotion and compassion doesn't quite convey itself in text alone. You have to hear it from her yourself.  If you are going through workplace bullying and feel you are alone in this, then listen to this. You will no longer feel alone! 
Late Night Girl can be found on Twitter and other social media and more specifically her blog listed here ----------------->
     Pret a Manger is an international sandwich shop chain based in the United Kingdom, commonly referred to simply as Pret. Founded in 1983, Pret currently has over 450 shops in nine countries. 
  Pret A Manger, 1986 onwards
Beecham and Metcalfe started a new operation, using the Pret A Manger name purchased from the former company's liquidator. They opened their first Pret A Manger in July 1986, located at 75b Victoria Street in London. Beecham and Metcalfe had met while studying at university.[14] 
The pair developed the chain's menu of handmade natural food, prepared in shop kitchens, and they remain significant shareholders in the company. The iconic logo was created by Adrian Kilby, founder of The Formation Creative Consultants Europe Ltd in the 1990s. 
In 1995 Metcalfe and Beecham set up the Pret Foundation Trust with the aim to alleviate poverty in the UK. The Trust receives donations from the sale of products and collection boxes in shops. The donations fund Pret's "Charity Run" vans which deliver unsold food to homeless shelters at the end of each day. 
The first shop outside of London was opened on Broad Street, New York, in 2000. In 2016, there were 74 Pret shops in the United States. 
In 2001, McDonald's bought a 33% non-controlling stake in the company, which they sold in 2008 to private equity firm Bridgepoint Capital.
The company opened its first shop in France in 2012, and had a total of 19 shops in France in 2016.[18] 
In 2016, its group sales were £776 million. 
On 19 March 2018, the company opened it first store in The Netherlands located in the central railway station of Utrecht. 
On 29 May 2018, JAB Holding Company announced that it will acquire Pret A Manger from Bridgepoint, with the deal expected to be completed during summer 2018.
The company emphasises the use of natural ingredients and advertises that its sandwiches are made on the day of purchase in a kitchen at each location (with the stated exception of a few small outlets).  Food left unsold at the end of the day is collected by charities.  Sandwiches are packaged in paperboard rather than sealed plastic.[24] 67% of its trade is in London, where around three-quarters of its stores are located
