    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nando's UK & IRE (London, England) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The worst interview process ever.

    every interaction took at least 1 week, constantly had to chase the HR for a reply. which indicates how chaotic they really are as the HR is supposed to represent the best of the company to the outside world/

    the salary they offer considering the amount of firefighting and oncall duty you would have to do is very low compared to other roles in the market, its almost embarrassing.

    my suggestion is either to totally avoid or if you go with an interview, try to get an offer and use the offer to negotiate a better rate with a more reputable organization that you are interviewing with.

    Interview Questions

    • 1 phone interview just talking about the project, I was told that they had a terrible legacy system written in .net and they had to constantly firefight to support the daily business and if coming along on call would be just part of the job.

      1. coding test the usual, mars rover kata. the person who reviewd the code was totally unaware of latest best practices and so picky about the smallest things, basically unless you write the code they way he would you wont pass this stage, a total waste of time.   1 Answer

    Interview

    I had a Skype interview - It didn't last long and it was very relaxed. I got asked generic questions such as greatest acheivement and why, and some more specific such as if you were to add a new meal to the Nando's menu what would it be.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nando's UK & IRE (London, England) in December 2019.

    Interview

    The manager and one potential colleague asked me to talk them through my CV. They then explained a few things about how the company and the department works. The tricky bit is that although they seemed friendly, they then made unacceptable comments against me to the agency. They should have either said them to me, or not be insulting especially behind the candidate's back. I do not recommend

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Nando's UK & IRE.

    Interview

    They arrange a 4-hour trial shift on the day that suits you. They ask you to wear black trousers and shoes and you will get a shirt from them. Then during the 4-hour UNPAID trial shift, you are accompanied by a person that will explain to you everything that you should know and then you are left alone to see if you are enthusiastic and you are able to do some things by yourself, mostly clearing up plates and sometimes running the food. Then after four hours if the manager liked you and the way you worked they will hire you straight away or they will call you.

    Interview Questions

    • There is no formal interview. They might just ask you a few things about yourself and if you have previous experiences.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nando's UK & IRE (Manchester, England) in July 2019.

    Interview

    So, I applied through Indeed, and after approximately a week I received a call of the manager, he asked a few questions like, if I have NIU, my eligibility to work, and my age, then he asked me to go for an interview the next day so obviously I said yes, the phone interview was really chilled btw, and well on the interview I met the manager and he was actually really nice, he told me to sit and then asked me to give my ID or passport so he can make a copy, after that he then gave me like a questionnaire where you'll have to put the amount the name of the restaurant you will be working with, and things like "how do your friends would describe you in 3 words?" In general the whole experience was great, after the interview the manager told me that he really liked how I answered the questions and my confidence.
