    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.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with high quality colleagues. Free food and payed breaks. Managers are normally easy going people.

    Cons

    Shift ours are not well organised, even with a low hour week. Low numbers of staffs in busy days and not well organised break distribution.

    Advice to Management

    General view in busy days, stress is like a chain and envolves all people, so if you give the right amount of care for each person of the chain, all will feel busy but will also feel that someone are looking after them, just that is enough keep everybody satisfied in busy day.
