Cashier (Former Employee) – Manchester – 28 October 2017
It was very nice environment to work in with a family feel to the workforce. If it ever became challenging we all worked together to ensure the restaurant was able to function. Easy to talk to managers and voice your opinions as there was also a team rep.
Front of House Staff (Current Employee) – Manchester – 14 June 2017
Most people at Nando's are incredibly friendly and nice and you have a great laugh at work although sometimes its hectic. The management overall are great however sometimes one or two can be challenging as they often employ from outside Nando's and the standards are different and their managing techniques aren't the same. The hardest part of the job is closing and sometimes especially when staff are new you can leave work at 2-3 in the morning. The best part of the job is the people you work with and the laughs and stories you get to share with each other.
£10 lunch breaks that depending on how long your work are from 20-30 minutes
The rota system is outdated and can be unfair in allocating holidays and time off.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Manchester – 18 November 2016
such a great place to work. Pay is minimum wage however, you meet some amazing people and have a good time working.
You spend your day, serving on the tills, waiting on tables, getting to chat to customers. Only downside is the fact it is retail so you more or less work all year with no 'real' holidays. Although the more days you work, the more holiday hours you save up, that can be used to take time off.
Also they have staff parties every year and staff days out. Its the best company to work for they take such pride in their staff as well as their customers.
Plus free nandos on shift.
free food, staff days out, staff parties, good pay
long hours, only closed christmas day, working late
Griller (Current Employee) – Manchester – 16 September 2016
Although the workplace is extremely fast-paced and constantly busy, the staff have an undeniably good camaraderie which helps when things become stressful. Each team member has a fantastic input into an already well-oiled team machine. The management team are some of the most caring and professional I have ever had the pleasure to work with. It is honest to suggest that you will meet some very good friends whilst working here!
Griller (Current Employee) – Manchester – 8 August 2016
We have two hours to prepare for the open. I've learned how to work in a fast paced environment and had health and safety training. The co-workers are lovely and the most enjoyable part of the day is working with them and the good feedback from the costumers, The only issue is that the job devours all of your social life.
Fun environment but managers are difficult to get on with
Buddy Trainer (Former Employee) – Manchester – 1 June 2016
Fun environment, work with great people and opportunities to go to staff parties. Managers are difficult to get on with, they expect to much from you and don't listen to your opinion at times. They treated me like a student in school sometimes
Nandoca (Current Employee) – Manchester – 21 February 2016
Great part time work for students, as long as you don't set your availability to everyday. Great social life in work, with the people you work with, but mainly weekend work means people with normal, 9-5 jobs forget what you look like.
Some people may think that this job is super easy, but due to the popularity and high demand of chicken and chips, the work place is very fast paced and challenging, both physically and mentally. This means that you must work well as a team, otherwise the whole restaurant goes under.
Great regional parties, food on breaks, great pay (for the type of work) and chances for advancement within the company available to those who want it.

Waiter and Griller (Current Employee) – Manchester, ENG – 29 April 2015
Preparing and cooking food, give to the costumer more than they expect. i learned how to work in a big team. the hardest part of the job is in the weekend, busy all the time and you have to work under pressure and stressful situation.
the most enjoyable part of the job is the family environment and see the customers enjoy their food.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Manchester, ENG – 25 September 2014
A typical day at work would involve a lot of different things on my CV they are all included. I have learnt a lot since I have been working at Nandos. I get on with my management and co-workers very well, we are all very close and enjoy spending time together in and out of work. Each day is different at Nandos as it is a big working environment and you never no what your going to get from one day to the next. The hardest thing about Nandos is probably the late nights working till 12/1 at night can be very tiring if you have been there for a number of hours. There are many enjoyable parts of the jobs, one being a free meal when you do a shift, another being the enjoyment of working with a close net environment were we all get on, another one being short shifts on different days.
Free Lunch, Different Shifts, Good Working Enviroment
Cashier (Current Employee) – Manchester – 13 July 2014
A typical day would include providing customer with they require, cleaning and restocking. The best part of this job was engaging in lots of different people and meeting friendly faces all day. It is a very active and fun place to work as the job culture is very lively and there is never a dull day.
