    I have been working at Nando's UK part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really good, above-average pay equal to every employer (not supervisors);
    Free meal up to 10 pounds after each shift;
    Great quality of food;
    High focus on teamwork;
    Facilitation of personal development and growth, if wanted;
    There is almost always something to be done that can keep you busy if wanted;
    Often challenges arise depending on present customers number and overall situation with available stock, places, time of day, number of available staff, etc.

    Cons

    After a while the tasks everyday become very dull and monotonous, depending on which area of the restaurant one is working in;
    Some tasks are very tiring and/or particularly disgusting (but then again, they have to be done)
