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

    Pros

    Paid weekly
    A free meal every shift - sometimes twice if you work long enough
    40% friends and family discount Mon-Thurs and 20% Fri-Sun
    Shifts can be flexible if you find someone to cover you

    Cons

    Can become very busy and repetitive, which can be exhausting and leave you feeling like a robot at the end of the day
    Work unfavourable hours - can finish at 1/2am if you are closing and sometimes have to work weekends

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you give out breaks fairly and legally - sometimes I've had to work many hours straight and was not been allowed to have a break, even-though I was entitled to one

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

    Pros

    Working in Nando`s is great if you are studying in the meantime. The working hours are flexible and most of the workers are students too so you gain lots of nice friendships.

    Cons

    No career opportunities. The company hires young and younger managers which don`t know how to manage people correctly. Awful management.

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

    Pros

    The values of this company and those they help the employees work with are amazing. Its basically a big family. Everyone is friends. They give the head office people free lunch every day just like the restaurants. We get a trip abroad once a year as a thank you and team building once a year. Plus a conference abroad in places as far away as south africa and brazil, all expenses paid. you get 4 weeks paid leave xtra once every 5 years. The training is great, as is the internal development. Honestly, this is one of the best companys i've ever worked in!

    Cons

    The company is maturing fast. That can leave some people by the way side. So a little more help with that would be good.
