    Anonymous Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Nando's UK (Birmingham, England (UK)) in September-2017.

    Interview

    I handed my CV directly to the assistant manger offered me the a place in the interview taking place two days later, 9am start. Around 11 people where at Nandos and then we all introduced ourselves by saying our names and a statement about ourselves that was either true or false, the others had to guess whether it was truth/false.

    We were then split into 2 groups and had to design and build a product that would stop the egg from cracking when it hits the product, after dropping the egg from like 1m. Some of the Nandos buddies watched us to see out team working skills and the ability to produce something cost effective. It was actually a really fun task just amen sure you voice your ideas.

    We then had to sit on spirit tables and had 15mins to rank some scenarios in the order on important and explain why they were ranked in this way.
    After the solo test, everyone had a 1:1 interview just about availability etc. - they are looking for people that will remain at Nandos for a long time and appreciate it when you show that you really want to put the effort in. They just go through a booklet of questions a couple pages long.

    They then give you a trial shift for 4 hours if they are happy with how everythingn went.

    As the restaurant was in Grand central and I applied for a full time position, I didn't end up getting the job because I live in Wolverhampton so if you were to have late shift, you'll end up finishing too late and will end up missing the tram/train.

    Nandoca Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nando's UK (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in September-2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual, however the interviewer was very disorganized. I was invited to a trial shift. The person who showed me where everything was could barely speak english (Immediate red flag). Although half way through I was told I was doing a very good job, after it was done, I had my free meal and everything seemed positive. A week passed and they didn't contact me. I sent them an email, waited a few days and had no response. I decided to phone them and despite being told I did very good they just quickly told me I was unsuccessful and hanged up on me. Would not recommend, they seemed very disorganized and incompetent at best.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Nando's UK (London, England (UK)) in August-2017.

    Interview

    After being screened by a recruiter. I was then interviewed by a member of HR and a manager. The Strange thing was the recruiter was adamant that the organisation was very 'Agile'. Yet the person that interviewed me said that most people use the waterfall methodology, which is not true, and I should have more basic project management qualifications as my agile qualifications were irrelevant.

    Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Nando's UK (London, England (UK)) in June-2017.

    Interview

    I had to go in for multiple interviews because the employee who hires apparently isn't the person that interviewed me the other two times. Though it was two different people, the other interviewers were quite lovely. The employee in charge of hiring demanded that he get an interview with me instead of the other people even though the manager of the restaurant already did. Once I had an interview with him, I showed up waited, he then canceled on me and told me to come back at a later date.

    Interview Questions

    • normal interview questions for the first one, get to know you plus what do you know about the restaurant. The second interview was situational questions for hostessing and waitressing.   Answer Question
