Management has been improved on since I worked there. Glad those days are behind me. Working with others is fun as it isn't too strict. Decent music plays, not in English though.
Pros

disoriented shifts

Fun workplace
Cook/Server (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 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.

Great co-workers, needs better management
Prep/Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON14 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.
Pros
amazing co-workers, good family working environment, amazing food
Cons
long hours, late nights, bad management

Ganged up or fixed
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON3 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.
Pros
Half price food
Cons
Bad work schedule

Fun place to work
BOH and FOH (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON3 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.

Local Marketing Representative (Current Employee) –  Oshawa, ON17 August 2016
I love working at Nando's, even if it's for a few hours a week.

Nando's is a great place to work if it's a side job. The hours suck, but the environment is great. My entire team gets no more than 10 hours a week..

Company advancement is great there's always room to move up in the company. Managers actually care about their employees and their potential.
Pros
Amazing family environment
Cons
Very few hours
