    I have been working at Nando's UK & IRE part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Incredibly flexible hours. - Free meal - Lots of incentives - Staff parties are frequent - Genuine family feel between staff - More relaxed atmosphere in terms of how the staff interact with one another

    Cons

    - Horrific sense of nepotism (hardest workers are almost never rewarded in favour of those who are 'besties' with the managers) - General sense of unprofessionalism within managers - Overtime is an expectation - Constant focus on profit over service - Often understaffed and shifts can be stressful

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff members who don't drink or go out often, the same as you would those who do.

    I worked at Nando's UK & IRE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + Pretty good pay + You’ll very likely find people you like as they purposely hire similar types of people (bubbly, upbeat, friendly) + Everyone makes an effort with each other and you’ll have staff days/nights out which brings you closer

    Cons

    - Not allowed to accept tips - Very long hours (sometimes over 12) - Rota changes weekly so you can never really make plans until you know what days you’re working - You get assessed for 3 months on a lower hourly rate (£7.90) and may not pass so waste all that time - Can get extremely stressful and there’s a lot of pressure to do things quickly

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the hours just a bit! If I’m nearing the end of a 12 hour shift and it’s still busy I’m not going to be performing as well or quick as I could be...

    Current Employee - Waitress in Romford, England

    I have been working at Nando's UK & IRE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekly pay and the only thing I would say is if you need a job urgently take it! Free meals

    Cons

    Long hours,rude managers when are stressed take things out on you,hardly any training and then they will moan that you don't know how to do something,mangers who have favourite team members who then get away with doing nothing.i want to put so much more but this is word limit on here!

    Advice to Management

    Be professional,help your staff instead of sitting on your phone,don't shout at them we are ALL humans at the end of the day,and when your stressed staff are not an emotional punch bag,it's a hard job but shouting at putting staff down won't make people work hard for you and go the extra mile.
