Cashier (Current Employee), Thurrock, ENG – March 6, 2014
Pros: free nando's, new social life
Cons: long hours, very late nights
When I started working at Nando's I was a shy and introverted 18 year old just out of college. They were the first company to offer me an interview and eventually my first full time job. Since then I have gained so much confidence. I can talk to anyone about anything, I made a whole new group of friends and the whole team I work with on a daily basis – more... are like family now. My management team so are supportive whether it be work related or personal problems, they help solve them. They are organised and persistent in getting high regional scores which results in the team winning a day out. Nando's Lakeside is the busiest store in the region (Essex) and can become stressful and this is the hardest part of the job because you may have to deal with 5 different tasks at once but there's always enough staff to help you out if it gets too much. I personally enjoy running around like maniac as it keeps me busy and has taught me to become organised. – less
Front Griller (Current Employee), Wembley – February 12, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: burns from the grills
my day a nando's would start at 5 pm and thats where the fun starts, I have learnt how to baste the chickens and how to cook and grill too. all of the management staff are very supportive and we all have a good laugh, not only the managements staff but also with the other staff too. the hardest part of the job is cleaning the grills at the end as they – more... are really hot and full of fat but the most enjoyable part of this job is working with people and that's different people, not just the members for the Nando's team but the customers too. – less
Cashier/ Store Representative (Current Employee), London, ENG – February 5, 2014
Pros: free lunches, 20% discount for staff
Cons: double shifts including night shift cover and then early start.
It's a nice place to work with, socialise and meet different people. I feel it's an initial stage wherein one seeks for an experience to advance further in hospitality career. My aim is to be a part of a customer service industry and not hospitality.
I gained the experience of a customer service skills, which will help me in my career.

waitness / chasier (Current Employee), London, ENG – January 10, 2014
Pros: free lunch ( and dinner if you close )
Cons: longh hours
that would be a really good place for start to work in London , because the most of the people who work there are not English , so you could have the opportunity to improve your English skills . the menages are severe and want the best from you every day , so you must learn fast . the work in general is really hard because is a really busy place so – more... you have to be really reactive every minutes of your shift , the hardest part is surely the closing ,because you would finish really late and would be a problem return home . But there are too many enjoyable moment , for example the staff meeting . – less
Waiter and Cook (Former Employee), Courtenay Place, Wellington – January 3, 2014
Pros: really good food
Cons: constant abuse and offensive language
Nando's - Courtenay Pl, Wellington
One can cook food, serve it to customers, take orders and clean tables. Each person does every job, no specialising, which is fine. Very good work. Enjoyable dealing with customers, easy cooking, good food.
The reason why I rated this job so badly was because of the lack of respect every staff member received from – more... the owner of the restaurant. This restaurant had a very high turnover of staff, who were constantly quitting because of the disrespect and abuse they had to suffer, myself being one of many. Customers also were turned away.
However, that was only because of a few individuals. The actual job itself was fine. Perhaps it is better now, I heard it has different ownership in recent years. – less
cashier (Former Employee), Greenwich, ENG – December 4, 2013
Pros: free meals
Cons: not enough staff
For me this workplace was really safety and humanity but hard aswell, particularly on the busy time. I'm learned a lot about customer service, and that how is working a restaurant in uk. My language is better now, because I communicate a lot with the customers and with the staffs.
Cashier (Current Employee), London – August 24, 2013
Pros: free lunches
I love Nando's because of a good food and the best management team. My co - workers are very friendly and helpful. Only in this job I understand what does it mean team work. Also everybody can develop their skills individually as well. We have parties or Nando's family day where everyone can know better each other. Unfortunately, closings, coming home – more... late and long hours it's the hardest part of this job. – less
