    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy to run your business the way you feel is the right way.

    Huge investment in the development of their people.

    As a Patrao I get to be a part of more around the region and have a positive impact not just in my restaurant but in the region as well as the company.

    Very well looked after with a strong emphasis on work life balance and some amazing financial incentives as well.

    Biggest thing is they embrace the differences in people and help you bring out the best in others whilst improving yourself along the way.

    Cons

    Genuinley cannot think of much other than it would be good to see more restaurants open in the north west.

    Advice to Management

    Be yourself and really push your boundaries because the company will support you 100%

    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.

    I worked at Nando's UK (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked with some amazing and fun people and had lots of staff parties which made the job bearable. Overtime was always available due to the high level of staff turnover. Progression is just about possible.

    Cons

    On the flipside the management was full on incompetent people with 0 to none leadership skills due to having a certain nationality. They have lost so many valuable people due to the fact that they were advancing people who spoke a certain lenguage where if you were doing 10 favours a week (coming in on your day off to help them on days when someone did not show up) it was considered basically normal.

    Advice to Management

    That would be too long so let me just say: Please look at the peoples potential and not on their gender or nationality.
