Cashier and Server (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 May 2018
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, ON19 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.
Pros
Good discount on lunch, Long breaks
Cons
Long Hours, Harsh Customers, Lack of Management

Great company on the outside but not into promoting people of colour
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 February 2018
Nando’s Canada corporate does not have one black person as a manager or assistant manager but if you visit their GTA restaurants they have a number of black employees. Seems to be a disconnect.
Their head office has hired one black employee in the last 5 years. It’s seems like there is something strange going on.
They claim to be diverse but it only includes Asians/Indians.
Pros
Friendly employees
Cons
Lacks diversity

Fun place to work.
Host (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC2 January 2018
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.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours and no breaks.

Nice tips
HOST (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB18 December 2017
The Nando's I work at is constantly super busy. So that means there is almost always a wait for seating. Co-workers are very nice and friendly, like they are you second family.

Learned a lot from this job
Prep / Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Surrey, BC20 November 2017
Learned a lot of cooking skills and how to keep a clean work space. Management was alright, co-workers were fun. You have to work for your hours, sometimes you have to stay later than you intend to clean up.

Coworkers are fun and supportive.
Cook (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON16 November 2017
my review is short and sweet the staff is great except for the manager and that all depends how your shift is gonna go.
Fun Supervisor = Great Shift
Bad Supervisor = Bad Shift
Job is repetitive and if you don;t have a great crew you'll hate the job.
Pros
Tips, 75% discount on one meal, 50% for total, great Supervisors and Staff.
Cons
Hours can be from 5-9hours. Managers Tend to suck, open till midnight.

Good at first then management changed.
Cashier / FOH / BOH (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 October 2017
Working at Nandos was both good and bad. When I first started it was great, was a new location so the staff were all nice and management. Then management changed and it all went downhill from there, this location isn't doing well the new management is rude didn't look after staff, it was one rule for one and another for others. Employees new more than management so we was practically running the whole restaurant. Overall not a good restaurant to work at.
Pros
Not many
Cons
The list is endless.

Worst restaurant ive ever worked at
Cashier/Server (Former Employee) –  Bovaird and hurontario in brampton10 October 2017
The management is absolutely rude and inconsiderate. The manager in charge hires all of his own family members and allows underaged girls to serve alcohol without their smart serve. Your lucky if you get one day of training. The job itself wouldnt be so bad if they werent so terribly understaffed or scheduled more staff to work busy nights. Nobody in the kitchen speaks a word of english which makes it beyond difficult to communicate with them. Also if you make a mistake, be prepared for the management to get upset and begin speaking in their language amongst eachother which is just disrespectful. On top of it all, ranvir who is the manager, sits in the office and locks the door and just drinks, so hopefully you dont need him, or if your shift is over be prepared to be there for an extra hour every single time. If i could give this place zero stars i would, absoultely the worst place ive ever worked.
Pros
None
Cons
Dealing with management and kitchen staff
