    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Free meal on shift
    -Company ‘seems’ to care about your wellbeing
    -Salary
    -Wage % budget doesn’t include salaries
    -Paid trips abroad for regional assistants to bond
    -Christmas and summer parties paid for with drinks
    -Store day outs together all paid for to bond with team and managers

    Cons

    -Long hours
    -Rare to have 2 days off together when fulltime
    -Patrao (General Manager) never does PM shift and your rota has to fit around their set rota
    -Wage % seems great until you have to save hours to pay for staff to clean after the shift
    -They don’t employ cleaners, staff are expected to stay sometimes until 2am to finish, sometimes meaning you have completed a 12-14 hour day
    -Customer Care team will give away vouchers for complaints sometimes instead of checking with the store as to what went on and if there is something that be done to help change for the future etc

    Advice to Management

    Listen to assistant managers more and make it anonymous so they don’t get treated differently. Work life balance to be better. Days off together. Pay people of the same level more fairly as some vary massively for same job title and role.
