    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Feel part of something special, from donating chicken to local charities to all the fantastic things the company does for its people - right the way back to the chilli farmers.

    Huge focus on being more than just a job for nandocas - life skills and personal development, as well as achievable progression career paths. Fantastic internal progression rate - from nandoca through to Patrao (general managers) and much more!

    A fast paced but fun environment - work hard, play hard!

    Your opinion matters, the managers at all levels want to create a fantastic working environment for everyone.

    Well above minimum wage for all nandocas in all roles.

    Free meal every shift!

    Nando's means it when they talk about their values, they are not just a motto!

    Cons

    Generally evenings and weekends are busier but rotas are flexible.

    I worked at Nando's UK part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free food on break, good pay, established development routes, amazing staff incentives.

    Cons

    Management is frequently rotated store to store so it can be a gamble as to how good they will be. A good store can be easily disrupted by ineffective management. Also the company can be more suited to younger applicants, students are hired regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep effective managers with their teams.

    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for:
    Great values
    Free food on shift
    Adequate breaks and paid breaks (Differ dependent on shift)
    Good rates of pay
    Flexible - shift swaps possible
    Friendly and generally young energetic staff
    A good Nandos manager is a great manager
    Regular staff nights out - both within the region including other local Nandos stores and store specific days and nights out

    Cons

    Weekend work and some unsocial hours - closes are finished when the job is done - not a bad thing - but does mean if shift is busier than expected or staff are slow, its an undetermined and late finish (possibly 2am on a weekend)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours suited to your requirements, if there are any problems it can be sorted out, decent pay for a student, paid breaks and free food per shift up to £10. Nando's strongly values family and everyone you work with are friends and act as a family. Many benefits including discounts (40% monday -thursday, 20% friday - sunday) and free food :)

    Cons

    Busy shifts, and long hours. Sometimes holidays can be hard to book as you'll be trying to take time off along with other colleagues (first come first serve basis).
