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

    Pros

    Autonomy to run your business the way you feel is best, fully supported by the senior leadership team.

    Great opportunities for career development and progression.

    Very competitive salary & bonus scheme.

    Best of all - business is run through people not profit & the values aren't just words, they are the pillars that hold up every decision made.

    Cons

    Nothing negative I can say about Nando's.

    I have been working at Nando's UK part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun staff roster with a good friendship spirit

    Management are all young so sometimes feel as much your friends as your bosses

    Fairly regular socials and rewards for those who put in a lot of effort

    Free food with every single shift!

    Cons

    The bread and butter of the job (waitering) gets very tedious when done for long hours over long weeks, because it's inherently quite boring and there is very little challenge

    Often overstaffed on the restaurant floor which can lead to a lot of walking around looking for things to do

    Often do split shifts to avoid having to give you a paid break

    Afternoon! Thanks for your comments. We would suggest speaking to your Patrao about your comments around your shifts, as they will be able to help with that.

    I worked at Nando's UK full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is on par with industry and bonus is achievable.
    Food and Drinks, Parties, trips for all levels, which has changed from just mgt
    Good training right from the beginning and you can progress very quickly if you have the right determination.
    People focussed at the Nandoca level, not so much Asst Mgrs.

    Cons

    Work life balance for Nandocas
    Move the goalposts sometimes
    As it has got bigger it is more around control rather than the entrepreneurial spirit from a number of years back.
    Micromanaged at times.
    No consistency between RD regions, can do some things in one region and not in others.
    Job is getting more and more complex for Nandocas and Mgt. Started out with limited menu paying minimum wage, now the grillers have lots and lots to do and it is extremely high pressured especially now they have added delivery

    Advice to Management

    Always remember where you came from. Stop being afraid of sticking to what you are good at.
