      Pros

      They'll accommodate you with your time and give you free food.

      Cons

      Not enough closers, so they end up leaving three or four people to just do it.

      Absolutely dreadful.

      Pros

      Free food on every shift.

      Cons

      Lack communication between managers and staff. Staff are forced to work long hours with barely any time for breaks, an example would be working a 9+ hour shift with 30 minutes of break time. Ridiculous rules like keeping phones in the staff room and restricting the access to staff possessions. COVID guidelines are often ignored. In my particular case, a staff member tested positive and management took the decision to keep the restaurant open despite massive pushback from staff members on duty. New staff are not adequately trained on how to work the tills and are very very lazy. If you think staff safety is a priority, think again, security is lazy and on one occasion there was a machete attack in our restaurant and no counselling or support was offered to anyone. Managers constantly belittle and patronise, and on occasion even talk down to you. You will be asked to put life on hold and be expected to work shifts outside of your availability. To sum up, avoid Nando's like the plague (or covid), its not worth the stress, pay or therapy bills once you realise how much your mental health and wellbeing is ignored.

      Not paid enough for work demanded from managers

      Pros

      Get to have free food on your breaks

      Cons

      Not paid enough for the hazards you face at the job as a griller, you cut, burn and hurt yourself just to serve some chicken. Irresponsible team members that don’t care about their jobs sometimes not showing up or calling in sick constantly leaving the rest of the members overworked and underpaid.
