    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nando's UK (Birmingham, England) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I phoned up my local Nando's and asked fi they had any current front of house vacancies. I was then handed over to the recruitment manager and was told they were having a recruitment day the following Sunday. It was quite hard to prepare for they day as I was just told there would be some group tasks which would help them determine whether I was right for the job. I did a lot of preparation for the interview, in hindsight too much. I prepared answers for typical interview questions and researched Nandos itself. On the recruitment day, there were 12 of us but only 3 part time positions available. We had 2 group tasks and then a solo interview. All in all we were thee for probably 3 hours. The group tasks we had to do were decide in what order we would save six people form a cave and why and then we had to made a bridge out of marshmallows and spaghetti! I would definitely say make sure that you get your opinions across and don't appear too quite but then you don't want to be the opposite. For these tasks we were divided into groups of 3 and one of the guys in my group was very over powering so I sometimes found it hard to voice my opinion however I did make sure I did. Make sure you contribute to discussions but don't over power the conversation because it doesn't come across very well. After the group task we had separate interviews an I must say it was quite easy! I only had to answer 3 questions, one was what do i think good customer service is and the other two were scenario based questions. Then I was just asked when I would be available for work.

    About 4 days later I was told that I had a trail shift. It was a four hour shift and I was basically just cleaning table and asking customers if there food was ok. I also had to deal with quite a few customer queries but they only involved basic tasks such as getting takeaway bags. After my shift I had a review with one of the managers who after getting feedback from other staff members thought I had done very well! I had to fill out a review form and told that someone would be in touch soon.

    A week later I got a phone call saying I got the job!

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nando's UK (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through indeed.co.uk and received a phone call to arrange an interview about a month later. The interview itself was fairly casual and consisted of general questions about availability and a few standard interview questions (why do you want the job etc). I was also told there would be a four hour 'trial shift' to see how well I worked in practice.
