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

    Pros

    Really good, above-average pay equal to every employer (not supervisors);
    Free meal up to 10 pounds after each shift;
    Great quality of food;
    High focus on teamwork;
    Facilitation of personal development and growth, if wanted;
    There is almost always something to be done that can keep you busy if wanted;
    Often challenges arise depending on present customers number and overall situation with available stock, places, time of day, number of available staff, etc.

    Cons

    After a while the tasks everyday become very dull and monotonous, depending on which area of the restaurant one is working in;
    Some tasks are very tiring and/or particularly disgusting (but then again, they have to be done)

    Pros

    Managers treat you with real respect
    Always option to extend hours if available
    Bonuses such as free staff nights out for bonding purposes
    Pay is well above minimum wage for me

    Cons

    High pressure when the restaurant is busy
    When it isn't peak time the restaurant can be very quiet which is tedious and can cause a lack of work ethic

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing as I am vey happy I really can not complain with this job.

    I worked at Nando's UK part-time

    Pros

    The restaurant was very busy but we had enough staff to match the demand, so we weren't ever expected to put two people's work load in. Friendly staff and usually good relations with the management, just depends where you work I guess. Tend to be quite flexible as well and put you before work, so asking for time off etc. is never an issue unless its late notice. Wage was 7.20 when I left, it rose with the new Living Wage. And the best thing is probably the free meal every shift (even the 4 hour ones).

    Cons

    Not really an opportunity to earn tips. All tips go towards a staff night out, which is good as well but I'd rather have the money myself to be honest.
    Not that I was trying to move up the ladder but it seems like it takes a long time with people having to wait years before going up to supervisor and then manager etc.
