Cashier/Waitress (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 18 May 2018
I'm a student so they were originally quite flexible with my work times and was able to change my shifts each week if necessary which was good. Pay was nice and some of my work colleagues were nice people. The benefits were the staff meals but there were a couple serious cons. They try to include everyone in staff parties and event day outs, but it's also quite 'cliquey' and often hired friends of friends or people they knew.
The lengths of the shifts sometimes could be horrible, as in 11am starts and I wouldn't leave until 1/1:30am the next day. Management can be extremely cocky and take the job too seriously, communication between them is often poor. Sometimes didn't listen when I said I couldn't work certain days and it took very passive aggressive messages before they listened. Eventually I realised it's not worth the stress for me because it was only part time work around school.
Staff meals, Good pay
Long hours, not enough breaks, stressful, awful management
Buddy Trainer (Current Employee) – London East, Greater London – 8 May 2018
In my time at Nando's I saw around 15 different managers in my Nando's every six month is like a whole new management team. But Nando's is very fun to work for and lots of parties. However, there are not a lot of benefits. One good benefit is you can transfer store depending on your location which is easy.
During my work experience to Nandos i felt like it was productive and helped me develop my skills through out the experience. The Nandos workers were also very friendly and helped me develop my social skills.
Perfect for Students who want a balanced work life and personal life
Cashier (Former Employee) – Camberley – 14 March 2018
Nando's are a really flexible company especially for students as they allow the employees a flexible work hour accordingly. The salary is also minimum wages for everyone regardless of age therefore young people who are searching for a good paying job, this is definitely for them.
Nandoca (Former Employee) – Merry Hill – 13 March 2018
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
Cashier/Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) – Sutton – 7 March 2018
Nando's is fun to work, however it requires a lot of hard work and you willing to take long shifts and to work weekends, mostly. There are opportunities for promotion. You get free food in your brakes, and they last between 20-30 mins long, depending on how many hours you're working in a shift.
Fun workplace with a young and energetic team. But paid under the London Living Wage.
Griller and trainer chef (Current Employee) – The O2 – 17 February 2018
Nando's Has given me the possibility to improve my skills through new learning instruments and good training since i began. This is a serious ever growing company give you the possibility to learn all the different positions in that you want to cover in the shop giving you the possibility to add new skills in your luggage and the possibility to do quick career in 4-5 years only!). Unfortunately all the positions from trainee to supervisor are paid less than the London living wage and you need to be available to work on weekends and bank holidays such are paid as normal shift and there is not service charge and the tips are very low. The good part is that most of the staff is happy and the management is very flexible to help you with every reasonable request about day off, contract hours, holidays, change position etc, The company offer periodically regional parties that give the possibility to the staff to know each other better! Nandoìs give you the possibility to cover in other shops in case you need to do more hours and you can get transferred all over UK.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Bromley – 16 February 2018
in a busy day is extremely hard, especially when the customer are expecting the food in a short time, so in this moment the job can be stress full, but in other hand, when the team is good, all can be soft and lovely.
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.
Staff (Current Employee) – Belfast, County Antrim – 25 January 2018
Paid breaks with meal allowance, you can work up your hours and swap shifts, flexible with holidays apart from christmas period, good management and you get the feeling the company cares for you. Only problem is the extremely busy days which are a usual thing and the minimum wage .The rest come along with this job's nature
free meal and paid break, benefits and discount on other nando's restaurants, flexibility
