Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 June 2017
terrible customers, with terrible management who don't pay you enough, you make $11 to clean tables and serve people who don't tip you whatsoever but there is a lot of work required all while your boss yells at you
Customer Service Representative & Cashier (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 30 May 2017
It's been a learning experience for me. I got a chance to learn different aspects involved in the administrative management of the restaurant. We work as a team to provide the best services to the clients.
Cook/Server (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 April 2017
Everyday at work, there were always smiles going around. Even though it was a day with chaos, there would always be smiles going around and coworkers encouraging us to do well. I learned a lot about teamwork in Nando's. There are days where everything is going downhill. Especially when the day is very hectic. When there are a lot of customers, that is one of the hardest parts of the job. Sometimes coworkers get angry because of being stressed out and sometimes orders get wrong. But in the end of the day, everyone always smile. And at work or even outside of work, we find time for each other. That is the most enjoyable part of the job. spenind time with people you got trained with, and just having fun at work.

Prep/Line Cook (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 14 February 2017
Nando's as a whole was pretty good place to work. Typical day would depend on what shift you work and what day during the week. I learned a lot of things that I will be able to carry to other jobs with me. Management on the other hand wasn't so good. They were all over the place and didn't always treat employees with respect. The hardest part of the job was working through weekend dinner rushes as it gets very hectic and stressful as well as the long hours and late nights you would have to put in sometimes which is hard on students. The most enjoyable part though was defiantly the people i worked with.
amazing co-workers, good family working environment, amazing food

Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 3 January 2017
A good cooperation provided full paid training. Good manu selections with unforgettable good food experience and accompanied with excellent service. However equipments and set up were out dated that affect productions and services. New restaurant managers and supervisors were unorganized and were easily misleaded. Schedules were unfair and based on favouritism. Full timers were scheduled to work around part timers conveniences. Some new managers and supervisors mostly not quaified for the positions and got hired, either they have to work with eyes closed and ganged up or got fixed. Most coworkers were helpful with exception of some old timers.
BOH and FOH (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 3 November 2016
Fun place to work, however pay for work expected is low. Expect around minimum wage to start even if you work full time. Management is good, however they are not afraid to show favoritism and have rookies jump ahead of experienced workers because they are friends with management. 50% discount on food while on shift Fellow workers are generally good and fun, however overall time management within the restaurant structure is an issue. Good place to work for parttime highschool students.
