    Pros

    The people are possibly the biggest perk of this job. You create lasting friendships with the people you work with. Benefits of the job include paid break and a free meal every shift. Between 3/4 regional parties with free drinks and travel for all staff Management wise, you can get up to £4000 bonus depending on restaurant performance, as well as trips abroad sometimes.

    Cons

    It always seems unorganised... the same problems are still happening 3 years later. Understaffed on shift as the budgets won't allow for more staff. Long hours, a 12 hour shift is not unusual, and usually get out at 2:30 AM on a friday/saturday due to all the cleaning at the end of the shift. At times it can feel a little 'clique-y', in order to progress there must be a position available, so it depends who knows who...

    Advice to Management

    In terms of general manager in the restaurant, spend more time with your staff and management team. In terms of regional manager, really spend more time in your restaurants! Some staff don't know who their regional manager is.

    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    -Free meal on shift -Company ‘seems’ to care about your wellbeing -Salary -Wage % budget doesn’t include salaries -Paid trips abroad for regional assistants to bond -Christmas and summer parties paid for with drinks -Store day outs together all paid for to bond with team and managers

    Cons

    -Long hours -Rare to have 2 days off together when fulltime -Patrao (General Manager) never does PM shift and your rota has to fit around their set rota -Wage % seems great until you have to save hours to pay for staff to clean after the shift -They don’t employ cleaners, staff are expected to stay sometimes until 2am to finish, sometimes meaning you have completed a 12-14 hour day -Customer Care team will give away vouchers...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to assistant managers more and make it anonymous so they don’t get treated differently. Work life balance to be better. Days off together. Pay people of the same level more fairly as some vary massively for same job title and role.

    Former Employee - Second Assistant Manager in London, England

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nando's UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Free meals on shift - Career progression (conditional)

    Cons

    - Literally have to live and breathe the company to a ridiculous level, in order to get quick career progression - Poor pay for 2nd Assistant managers, £24,000 in Central London! - Just because you have a ping pong table in your head office, doesn't make you a fun and/or non-corporate company

    Advice to Management

    Less managers! Stick to a General manager and 1 or 2 Assistant managers, as it confuses the operation in terms of roles and responsibilities, as well as adding to the hierarchical structure. Top heavy... not good!!!!
