A typical day would consist of running food orders, cleaning and preparing tables, greeting customers with a high quality customer care. Very fast paced job, menu is constantly updated so it keeps you on your toes learning the new items. The hardest part would be the stress of managing several roles at once due to lack of staff. Working as a team definitely has its perks, they are a great bunch of colleagues who are always very friendly and welcoming.

Good Company. I had a very good experience there. The job is easy, you just need to learn the standars of the company and then everything flows. If you work in the grills or coordination is harder than the people who work in the floor, hosting or tills. In my opinion grillers and coordinators should earn more money than the rest. So, it is a good company but needs to improve in that thing. Salary could be better in general.
Free lunches, flexibility, good atmosphere.
Grillers and coordinators should be payed more than the other positions

This job can be fun and a nightmare at times, staff are very friendly as well are the managers but it is clear that managers have favorites and it creates tension at times within the working environment.

Nandos is a great place to work and have their employees in their best interest. It is an easy place to work from day to day, and even offer an easy route to advance your skills although can also be the perfect place when in-between jobs or to work alongside studying. The management are understanding and fair, however, this can depend on the restaurant you work in. The most enjoyable part of the job is the family atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff.
Dependability from managers on harder working staff

I have worked at Nandos for over a year now and the mood there goes up and down. The typical day includes serving customers and serving the food. I learned how to communicate with customers as well as how to solve problems. The management varies, sometimes they will leave and be replaced meaning you may end up with someone more or less friendly than the last manager. Sometimes managers are unprofessional and make work life harder for some staff members depending on their friendships. The hardest part of the job is closing the restaurant, if you are short on staff then there is a lot of physical work to do alone. Closing the restaurant can result in leaving hours after your shift has finished and getting home at early hours of the morning. The most enjoyable part of the job is having parties and work gatherings on occasions.
Great fun to work, with fantastic job security. I've learned a lot being here and moving up the ranks pretty quickly. Management team are great, everyone is. (Apart from one or two, but that happens everywhere) It's like a big family.
Free food when working, great discounts when not. Brilliant perks and holidays.
Nando's its all about family, staff are trained in house and if you are an ambitious individual you will go far.A typical day at work starts off with the manager setting out the store plan how the shift is going to be run, who does what when people going for breaks.Depending on the location of the store it can be very busy this at times is the hardest part of the job.If you not good at the time and staff management this is when managers break down or walk out during a shift.But as long as you deliver the Nando's experience to the customers which is the Nando's believe.The most enjoyable part of being an employee of Nando's is the staff drinks eve, the company have these sort of night every four months.The company hires a nightclub for only one night pays for the drinks for all staff sometimes there will be over a thousand these sort of nights happen across the UK.As for the managers, the company would take us for free holidays all paid for.

Fantastic place to work. especially if its part time alongside something else. There is definitely room for progression if wanted. Everybody sticks together and brings you into the family. The customers can sometimes be challenging but you will be taught to deal with these situations.
I worked at Nandos when I was at university, the place is like a big family. You can start off working on the grill and 6 months time be the manger of the store if you have the right attitude and enthusiasm.
