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

    Pros

    Meal every shift! - This makes living as a student much easier
    Team members/other employees- Everyone lives the Nando's values and are truly lovely to work with. It has become my second family!
    Shifts- It's shift work so easy to fit around your studies and it's very easy and flexible to swap shifts with your co-worker meaning you can still have a social life
    Investment- Nando's really invest in their employees. There is lots of room for development and progression and managers are always prepared to give you feedback and help you throughout your career journey
    - So much more than chicken and chips

    Cons

    - barely any.. except late nights when on a close which is expected in this line of work.

    Advice to Management

    keep being upbeat and positive- it's the people that make Nando's the best company I've worked for.

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

    Pros

    Good young workforce. Good team morale. Loads of free drink nights, events throughout the year like the Christmas Party, Summer Day out, Tournaments such as football- Peri Cup and many other events.

    Paid breaks, and free food on shift up to a certain budget.

    Cons

    High pressure environment, fast paced. Can be very stressful, often.
    Late night closes. Very busy throughout the shifts, although it is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Although usually they are very understanding and flexible with availability, sometimes they can be inconsiderate and it makes work life balance hard to work out. Also realise that the workforce is young (generally) and therefore coping with a lot of external stressors at that age.
