    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.

    Advice to Management

    Although family is one of the Nandos values it should be though about within reason. Sometimes work relationships can seem to effect judgement. I know of people who should have been treat in certain ways due to whatever reasons, and because of personal relationships they have been dealt with in an improper manner. I am guilty of this myself as I was close friends with management and sometimes was not dealt with properly.
