      I worked at Nando's UK part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - Free meal either on break or after shift. - Flexible Rota - Easy to shift swap

      Cons

      Management aren't capable of managing effectively.

      Advice to Management

      Being one of the senior figures of management doesn't entitle you to throw orders around to make your life easier. Get involved with grilling, kitchen duties and don't ask anyone to do something that you can't do or wouldn't do yourself.

        I worked at Nando's UK full-time for more than 20 years

        Pros

        The best reason to have worked here was it is a great company to work for. It thrives on looking after the people. “ it’s the people that makes the chicken”

        Cons

        Long hours, After a few years one feels burnt out. Also, some of the people make it not a great place to work due to their behaviours and how they treat others. Which is not the company’s culture.

        Advice to Management

        Most MD’s and GM’s show great leadership behaviour and understand the core value of what the company is about.
