    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nando's UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid weekly
    A free meal every shift - sometimes twice if you work long enough
    40% friends and family discount Mon-Thurs and 20% Fri-Sun
    Shifts can be flexible if you find someone to cover you

    Cons

    Can become very busy and repetitive, which can be exhausting and leave you feeling like a robot at the end of the day
    Work unfavourable hours - can finish at 1/2am if you are closing and sometimes have to work weekends

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you give out breaks fairly and legally - sometimes I've had to work many hours straight and was not been allowed to have a break, even-though I was entitled to one
