    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.

    Advice to Management

    Although family is one of the Nandos values it should be though about within reason. Sometimes work relationships can seem to effect judgement. I know of people who should have been treat in certain ways due to whatever reasons, and because of personal relationships they have been dealt with in an improper manner. I am guilty of this myself as I was close friends with management and sometimes was not dealt with properly.
