    I worked at Nando's Canada full-time

    Pros

    The front and back of house staff share tips equally and receive a minimum wage not a server's wage.

    Cons

    Management has favourites, they work you to the bone, not really a professional work environment, low standards on cleanliness.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all staff equally and fairly, provide more opportunities for career advancement, be more professional, maintain a clean work place.

    Waitress/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nando's Canada (Melbourne) in November 2011.

    Interview

    To get the interview, I simply handed in my CV to my local Nando's branch, on the Sunday. On Wednesday, they phoned me, and we arranged an interview for Thursday. This only lasted approximately five to ten minutes; we discussed what hours I was available for, and what the job involved. At the end, I was told to come in at the weekend - six hours (paid) training, and I could then select what days I wished to work. Weekend/weekdays. It was very easy!
