Waitress (Former Employee) – Milton Keynes – 18 October 2018
A typical day at work was good. I had to come in and go to the till to serve the customers. I had also helped with the food and waited for any help. I had learned to work with large groups and I had gained confidence. The hardest part of the job was with the cleaning because we had to thoroughly clean the place. The most enjoyable part of the job was the energy and the good pay that they provided. They had also given us bonuses for our good work.
Waiter (Former Employee) – Leicester – 8 October 2018
it was OK I guess. we got free food every day but it was hard to work in that heat. I meet new people every day along the way my confidence went up everyday as I meet new people I had a team to work with
Waitress (Former Employee) – Widnes – 2 October 2018
I really enjoyed working at nandos and how each day was different there. all the staff where super friendly and I really enjoyed working there. it was like being a part of a family. nandos take pride in the culture and background which I find very interesting. when I started I was paired with someone else who showed me what to do which allowed me to then complete tasks as best as I could
Waiter - Part Time (Former Employee) – Orpington, Greater London – 1 October 2018
I did work experience at Nando's my job role was a waiter I was responsible for meeting and greeting new customers and taking orders. The employees helped me with my job role I enjoyed working at Nando's because I like the people that worked at Nando's they were very friendly and helpful to me I was able to have a good leaning experience.

Working at nandos has helped me to gain valuable experience and skills. It is a brilliant company who looks after you as if you are family, and that includes working in the many nandos restaurants I have worked in across the UK. I always feel looked after and I always feel I can talk to my fellow colleagues and managers if ever I feel there is a problem.

amazing as a social job and perfect for students, gets stressful but you get a free meal every shift you meet so many people and work along people who you can easily relate too. if youre good at working in fast paced environments then go for it, teamwork makes the dream work
Waiter (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 3 September 2018
Nandos is a good environment, its fast pace and a place i was constantly busy. I enjoyed the workspace and kept up to track with the weekly rota. i learnt everything i needed to know from running food to tills to working on the door. The hardest part of the job is closing up and making sure everything is perfect. i wouldn't count if as hard tho i would jut count it as ver time time consuming. The most enjoyable thing about the workplace was the people and the different characters that are regular customers.
Trainer/Waitress (Current Employee) – Tamworth – 22 August 2018
Overall I have enjoyed my time at nando's, the laughs with friends I've made but I now feel that I need to move on from the job make new friends and learn different life skills and hopefully a better paid job role I can enjoy more and have more free time instead of the constant changing of hours
Waiter (Former Employee) – Covent Garden, Greater London – 16 June 2018
Great job to raise some money good work environment can be amazing staff lot of improving opportunities if you have the right attitude and skills you can easily be a manager or a supervisor in like a month
Waitress/Cashier (Former Employee) – Leicester – 26 February 2018
It was such a good work place until all the best managers left and they hired new ones. They all act like they have been there forever making new rules and changes. Very unorganised. Managers being late to their own shift (1,5h) but they expect staff to be there on time! They send people home on a busy shifts - expecting you to do 3 people’s job.
Nandos if you want the restaurant to succeed you need to be careful who you hire as a manager because some can not MANAGE.
WAITER AND CASHIER (Former Employee) – Woolwich – 7 February 2018
First job I did after arriving in the UK. Easy to enter, because people tend not to stay long in this job as workers are treated like cattle (mere disposable units of production). Poorly paid hardworking shifts. Good spirit between co-workers. Horrible job culture.
Made some friends amongst my co-workers
Only one meal per day, even if you work two shifts (lunch and dinner)
