    I worked at Nando's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very easy to make friends as you are in close proximity to your coworkers on shift! It is very easy to work your way up the ladder if you aspire for it but it takes a long time.

    Cons

    Restaurant managers are generally very narcissitic and tyrannical. The extensive cleaning at the end of every night and the exposure to harsh chemicals is too great of a risk compared to the pathetic pay rate. Why no overtime rates?? Restaurant and area managers always played favourites and treated their least-liked employees like crap, did not adhere to the company's values at all. Company needs to seriously evaluate who they hire and promote.

  5. "Casual, laid-back environment, poor pay rate"

    Pros

    Great company culture including inter-restaurant sports tournaments, and great opportunities for growth within the company. Opportunity for travel for company forums

    Sometimes there is some disconnect between the older management and the largely younger-aged (17-21 years old) restaurant staff
