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

    Pros

    Good pay, good food and good upper management. Easy menu and duties to learn and (mostly) good co workers

    Cons

    Terrible immediate management, some horrid co workers who could actually try to physically harm others who they think are in their way to management. lt's not easy to move up from runner to other positions if a manager deems you not good enough or too good.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites even if they are good performers. A nasty personality is a nasty personality no matter what--but this does reflect management. If there are divisions between co workers find the causes, and solve them. Schedule certain people(prone to actual harmful physicality with others)away from others who actually do their job.
