    I worked at Nando's Peri Peri part-time

    Pros

    It's a very friendly place with most managers being on the young side - every one is friends and it is a good community. Nando's company beliefs are very accepting as well. The food is also great and you earn a tip on top of your wage (starts at 8.50 for most). Everyone gets a free staff meal at the end of their shift and also get 50% off when dining off-shift. Also, it is very easy to move your way up at Nando's. Many of the managers also started out as part time cashiers.

    Cons

    While most managers are great, some are just terrible and corporate does not do anything about it until multiple complaints are made, even if it is plain obvious through sales and complaints that the person does not know what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more thorough about hiring managers.

    I have been working at Nando's Peri Peri (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason for me is that I like working with other people and the public.I get the joy of meeting new people,able to tell them about my job and making them good food so they will keep coming back.

    Cons

    The only down size of this job the hours are up and down.If your schedule says 8 hours u might do 6 and sometimes the breaks are 2 to 3 hours long.

    Advice to Management

    Treat every body equal.Make people feel that you appreciate them and for having them on your team.The employees are the one's that helps make the money...
