    Good people, lots of fun.

    No free meals only half price. Griller had too much work to do compared to other employees.

    Add another staff member to the kitchen to coordinate the orders.

    I worked at Nando's Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not many come to mind

    Cons

    Where to begin... Management is a complete mess. As an employee you are constantly undervalued and underappreciated. Constantly understaffed which made for long wait times for guests and stressful moments for staff. When dealing with HR over incredibly unprofessional management members, it's a complete waste of time. You are shown in more ways than one that you are not valued. You were also told on a consistent basis...

    Advice to Management

    When more than 6 people come forward about poor management. Maybe don't completely ignore them and fire the person? Ridiculous.

    I worked at Nando's Canada part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Paid hourly plus tips Paid sick days

    Cons

    Didn’t get any of my earned tips until 2 months working there 5 hour shifts, usually cut down to 3-4 hours One of the worst places I’ve ever worked at. You are trained to be part of a “family”, but in reality it’s just another low-end server job where you are expected to be a cashier/server/host/phone operator. “Buddy” trainers act like supervisors and micromanage you Management is more concerned with keeping...

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect Be honest when hiring employees about shift hours (5 hours) and position (I was hired as a closer and not told until 3 months into career) Discourage ‘buddy’ trainers as acting like supervisors Improve management communication (I was told different ways of doing one task by every manager)

    I have been working at Nando's Canada full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Growth in personal development is this companies focus! If you are fired up about self-development, and the development of others, this is where you need to be! You have courageous leaders throughout the organization who are always committed to helping. Family driven values is evident and lived- it's the Nando's way. Nando's is way more than cooking chicken, it's about impacting others globally! There is so much purpose...
