    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.

    Pros

    Nando's is a place where you can be your true self where there is no pretence or typical corporate aliases. It's a company with a heart and true sense of purpose far beyond balance sheets. It's fun, vibrant and yes we do work hard. Ever striving to do better for the right reasons. Free lunches, team trips, conferences.

    Cons

    There are no cons in my opinion

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to voices of your teams

    I worked at Nando's UK part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Free Nando's on shifts worked for or over 4hrs
    - 40% discount Mon-Thurs and 20% Fri-Sun
    - Free refillable drinks on shift (or a hot drink)
    - Great staff parties
    - Friendly atmosphere and everyone got along in my branch
    - Flexible hours, you can choose the days you can and can't work and your preferred hours

    Cons

    - As it was a centrally based Nando's, if you finish work after midnight (which sadly was often the case) you would struggle to get home in reasonable time, as the tube isn't working anymore
    - Closings always took longer than stated on the rota, usually due to being understaffed or customers not leaving promptly
    - When you stayed longer than time stated on the rota when closing, very rarely you'd be paid the extra time that you spent there. I think I only got it paid twice, and I stayed late every single close. But if you were 5 minutes late you'd get death stares
    - No sick pay

    Advice to Management

    - Hire enough staff so the floor isn't constantly struggling
    - Pay your staff until the exact minute they work
    - Listen to your staff and try to work with them, maybe then the turnover wouldn't be so high
