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

    Pros

    I only planned to work for Nando's for a year to gain experience, but 5 years on and I'm still here. The culture and values above all are what keeps me wanting more, but it's an amazing company for learning and development.

    Cons

    Salaries aren't the greatest, but then again I guess taking us on trips to South Africa, Portugal, etc (basically been on a glamorous trip abroad every year spoilt by the organisation).

    Advice to Management

    Salary and benefits could be worked on. When it's benefits it's the financial side that needs working on.

    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family: People at Nando's are incredible. Every restaurant has its different story or background, but the people you will find are always available and friendly
    Integrity: it's awesome how Nando's as a company is able to deliver such a meritocracy system in term of promotion or opportunity. Wherever you from or whenever you join Nando's, you will be always welcomed!
    Passion: I love how Head Office, L&D, Customer Service, MNGMT are always trying their best to help Nandocas from every store to enjoy their time at work. The passion start from the bottom to serve great food to the top our CEO always proud about Nando's.
    Pride: Nando's it's always present at all events locals,regionals or nationals to give that extra kick of flavour and show how great as a company it is. Since your Journey at Nando's start you will be involved in so many activities that you will be easily caught to be part of more, then you will find yourself to promote Nando's at anytime (when you travel, when you are with your friend etc).
    Courage: That it's the main part of the job, being a risk takers will get you far, very far in the company, at one point I thought there were no limit, because Nando's is complete (QG,Marketing, Finance, IT, B&M, Customer Service, Social Media, Music, Films etc) and as a company can help you to reach all your dream or vocation. Feel free to Flyhigh!!

    Cons

    Career: Try to grow up as quick as possible, making question, being risk takers, positive and a leader. Travel: use wisely your day off and plan in advance, which will help your worklife balance. Media: try to get involved in all the events that Nando's is present and keep updating yourself with the Nandoca App, which is full of cool stuff! Food: It's great, but don't take all the leftover at home because Nando's is involved in doing the right thing scheme giving the ref overs on charity. Family: be nice with your team and sometimes try to hang out all together

    Advice to Management

    Grillers wage increase, try to have less turnover, keep being nice and more development course!

    I have been working at Nando's UK part-time

    Pros

    Meal every shift! - This makes living as a student much easier
    Team members/other employees- Everyone lives the Nando's values and are truly lovely to work with. It has become my second family!
    Shifts- It's shift work so easy to fit around your studies and it's very easy and flexible to swap shifts with your co-worker meaning you can still have a social life
    Investment- Nando's really invest in their employees. There is lots of room for development and progression and managers are always prepared to give you feedback and help you throughout your career journey
    - So much more than chicken and chips

    Cons

    - barely any.. except late nights when on a close which is expected in this line of work.

    Advice to Management

    keep being upbeat and positive- it's the people that make Nando's the best company I've worked for.
