It all started in 1987, in a suburb of Johannesburg called Rosettenville. A man named Fernando Duarte invited Robbie Brozin to a humble eatery to try some mouth watering PERi-PERi chicken. The rest, as they say, is history. Five years later, Nando’s landed in the UK ... Read more

    I worked at Nando's UK part-time

    Pros

    - Fun, friendly, and youthful atmosphere amongst staff
    - The tips went towards "Nando's Family" days out, which helped boost morale. These were days given off to everyone in the store to hang out i.e we went bowling, had a BBQ etc. (other Nando's store staff cover the restaurant)
    - Even if you're under 21, you earn the minimum wage of a 21 year old
    - You get free chicken

    Cons

    - Other restaurants tip better as you don't take orders at the table, so it's not as personable
    - I experienced some rota issues with the person in charge of organising it, but nothing that couldn't be sorted out

    Advice to Management

    More chicken.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Nando's UK (Dundee, Scotland (UK)) in September-2016.

    Interview

    Personally went into restaurant and handed CV. Lucky to have one of the supervisors there who asked me just a few personal questions on the spot, then said they'd contact me. One day after got a phone call from manager asked to come for a face-to-face interview. 2 days after the interview, got a call to be informed that I got the position.
