Nandoca (Current Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 7 April 2018
People are fun to work with, management currently isn't the best at the one i worked with, but previous teams were a joy and pleasure to work with. Due to current team, I just feel like i've out stayed my welcome.
Nandoca (Current Employee) – Hamilton – 29 March 2018
I have always had a lot of passion for Nando's as a company to work for and I was never shy of highlighting my enjoyment towards my job. After working in Nando's for almost five years, certain aspects of the job started to change. These changes started to develop over the last year causing many staff members to lose motivation and the determination towards making our store great. The values that Nando's once had started to wear off on every employee, including myself. The only concept of our store that was keeping my own drive towards making the store better was the customers. Over the years my customer relations grew and delevoped, and i was able to help create a standard that promoted happiness for the customers that continued to use our store. The hardest part of the job is attempting to make other employees enjoy their job more,and trying to help the team work better together in order to provide a moral that everyone should promote. Other than various issues that occurred within the team itself, nando's as a whole is a fantastic company to work for and the management team are by far the most caring and understanding group of individuals, which is why i have hesitated leaving until now.
Customers, understanding and loving management team, opportunity to grow within the company
other staff members attitudes towards their job and the company

This was my second job. I was still at college and heading off to uni and they were really understanding and supportive. The staff are brutally honest but are always willing to help and train new staff. I loved working here and the wage was great, the only downside being the finishing touches. Good with hours, relatively flexible and lunch meals always provided.
Nandoca (Former Employee) – Wolverhampton, West Midlands – 7 March 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed the team I worked with and although holiday was difficult to book, every shift, including stressful ones were enjoyable. The pay was very good as everyone is on the same hourly rate (2017 - £7.20) which was brilliant as I was 19 at the time.
Free lunches, try to fit around your availability, fun to work at.
Sometimes shifts can be long and holidays can be hard to book
Nandoca (Former Employee) – Thurrock, Essex – 29 January 2018
Working in Nandos helped me to make new friends and gain experience in a new industry. The salary was well deserved, however you do not receive sick pay. Hours are ideal, as they are very flexible. Some tasks I was assigned to were not mentioned in my interview.
Nandoca (Former Employee) – London – 24 January 2018
my day usually starts with the food preparation or cooking, after that I have to clean my workplace. I have learned that with the organization, work preparation, hygiene habits and teamwork everything becomes easier and more secure, This culture that is practiced in this workplace. The hardest part of the job is when someone is missing, and that makes everything hard for the rest of the team, but in the end of the day we feel satisfied that the job is done The management is working well, taking good care of all the business.
Ok company as a stepping stone into something bigger
Nandoca (Former Employee) – Telford – 10 October 2017
Nandos Was a great company to work for to gain confidence in myself and what I'm able to achieve in my personal life goals, not so good at being able to progress within the company unless you fit in with a click of a few people. Seems to be they want to employee a lot of younger staff to keep up with Nando's being aimed at younger adults where as sometimes thats not always the case because of some of the staff being so young they don't take work as serious they see it as a laugh and joke and don't see why they should have to do some of the jobs expected of them but then also a lot of older members of staff are the same there is nothing in place for people not to just keep passing on jobs everyone just wants to pass it on until no one does it. the work life balance is awful! you can work one day 12-9 next day 10-2 following day 6-10 and always be all over the place and then the rota isn't normally done until the saturday or Sunday for the next monday so there is no way of planning, They don't actually stand by the nando's values
Nandoca (Former Employee) – Westfield Stratford City, Greater London – 21 July 2017
As a Nandoca you have the responsibility of looking after the customers in your designated area. I learnt how to time manage as well as to better my multi tasking skills. The workplace culture is great, the hardest part is dealing with uncooperative customers, people who don't speak English and children running around whilst carrying plates to and from the back of house. Management is questionable. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to the happy, appreciative customers.
at the start i found it hard and wasn't really a fan of it as i was more used to just being in a kitchen but after a few months they helped me get better with customers and i learned to like it, The management will do what they can do help you with everything to your personal life to making sure you can get to work on time.
good staff and management are nice
if you live far away from your store getting home can be a pain
Nandoca (Former Employee) – Stevenage – 19 May 2017
Typical Day - interacting with all the customers, serving food, cleaning consonantly Learned - Customer feedback and more confidence Management - Poor, didn't take into account that i couldn't work long hours as i was in the middle of exams, kept putting me on too many shifts. Hardest - Keeping track of orders and tables, difficult customers Enjoyable - Free food at end of shift
Nandoca (Former Employee) – Kilburn, Greater London – 19 April 2017
great place to go up, either as management or supervisor etc. Great team, very friendly, I enjoyed this job a lot, as I learnt a lot. the hardest part of the job would be working late and weekend shifts, however, the time goes by quickly due to the great and friendly team
