Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Alberta – 6 September 2018
-shifts never the same (restaurant) so either start with inventory, orders, pre-meeting then we open at 11 and its game time -i have learnt to be more sure of myself and that, no matter where you come from, we're all the same cause its legit a melting pot of a number of cultures/nationalities! :-)
-mgt has come and gone and so many have left now so its a little taxing but having great people rallying around you makes it worth the while -very diverse -being "smile-y" all the time. sometimes you want to be angry but can't cause it affects the biz and we have people that come in and are absolutely disrespectful, rude, arrogant that we can't always handle and since, "the customer is always right".... :-( -people i work with....getting in touch with my community, seeing new people come in, the skills i learn....
food discounts, work funded trips, recognition
long hours, inability to slap people rude to my younger team members ;-)
Cashier and Server (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 19 July 2018
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.
All restaurant positions as host, server, runner (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 5 July 2018
Training is non existent. Management can is not accepting if you are sick or if they made a mistake in scheduling. Managers have been inappropriate and unhelpful. It's all about cutting costs.... Managers forget to send people for breaks and blame it on you.

other than being ran on a skeleton staff most of the time and one supervisor making the shift excruciating to get through, it was a great place to work! easygoing management and great people working there.
Front of House (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 19 March 2018
Very successful but when it comes to life balancing I found it difficult to manage myself throughout this time. I enjoyed working with my co-workers throughout my time as Nando's. I got along with almost everybody including the customers who would walk through the door. I enjoyed everything about my time here.

he people you work with are amazing and fun but the job itself is tedious and unrewarding. Management seems like they care but they don't that much and you won't exactly notice that at first. Also, for a company this diverse they have a very shaky tolerance for racism and homophobia within the company... especially management trainees. Good for a short period of time but nothing else. The food isn't even free.
