    Interview

    I interviewed at Nando’s in York in late September 2018. The process took just over a week. I applied through Facebook and got a call a week later inviting me to an interview.

    I enjoyed the interview, I spoke to a very nice guy and I thought it went really well. He said that, if I was successful he’d call me and arrange a trial shift, if I was unsuccessful I wouldn’t hear anything. I never heard from them again so I obviously didn’t get the job, however I think it is a bit unprofessional to not contact people even if they haven’t got an offer because there are people out there more desperate for a job than me and they’re left hanging. I called the restaurant just over a week later asking for feedback and they never got back to me. Luckily I found another job but I was a bit annoyed they didn’t contact me at all, especially since I saw the hiring sign back up in the window a week later!

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nando's UK & IRE (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.

    Interview

    My interview was relatively informal, just the manager of the store getting to know me better and seeing if i had any experience in waitressing. It was very reassuring that the interview was casual as it set the vibes for the restaurant

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nando's UK & IRE (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Went to a recruitment day, started at 10am through till 1.30-2.00pm, at first you filled out a application form and then handed it in and got a name badge in return, Took a seat and waited. (There was also hot and cold beverages you could help yourself too)
    When everybody arrived we watched a presentation on nandos which was quite interesting to be honest! And all the staff who was there told you a little about them selves how long they'd worked there what they do etc. Most of the staff had worked there for 5-10 years which means it must be an amazing company! We then had a break and got onto our first excersise of the day, building a paper tower. We were split into groups of 8 and had 10 minutes to make a paper tower. These are important because there are staff in the room with you assessing you on how you work with others, if your shy etc and it's pretty much the deal breaker on if you get the job or not. Then there comes excersise 2 which is in your Same group you get 15 minutes to write and perform a jingle, in this particular recruitment day our jungle had to have these 5 words in "Boldon, NANDOS, Peri, Saucy & Chicken"
    They also watch how your interacting and stuff. Then you perform it in front of everybody. When everybody's jingles were over we then had our 1 on 1 interview, which wasn't like an interview at all it was more like a 5-10 minute chat, I had a really nice guy just asked me general questions like why I want to work for nandos and 3 words my friends would describe me in and 3 words my old manager would, Stuff like that. All in all a really fun laid back day but unfortunately I didn't get offered the position, I asked for feedback and it was because in the paper tower excersise they felt I took over too much, now I personally don't think I did all I said was lets get started and do this and that then I stood back and let everybody else get on with it. I would say I took over much more in the jingle but they were different assesors and loved me! So it's kinda mixed reviews. So basically I done a lot of research about the interviews cos I was so nervous and every single one said to be confident and loud and make sure your point has been put across in the group activities, Evidentaly not haha! So be confident but not too much! However the girl did say there gonna keep my cv because my interview was great and they loved me in the jingle! Which I'm happy about I suppose just really wish I could go back in time and re-do the paper tower excersise. Good luck to anyone who has a interview! Just be yourself.
