    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy to run your business the way you feel is the right way.

    Huge investment in the development of their people.

    As a Patrao I get to be a part of more around the region and have a positive impact not just in my restaurant but in the region as well as the company.

    Very well looked after with a strong emphasis on work life balance and some amazing financial incentives as well.

    Biggest thing is they embrace the differences in people and help you bring out the best in others whilst improving yourself along the way.

    Cons

    Genuinley cannot think of much other than it would be good to see more restaurants open in the north west.

    Advice to Management

    Be yourself and really push your boundaries because the company will support you 100%

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

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with high quality colleagues. Free food and payed breaks. Managers are normally easy going people.

    Cons

    Shift ours are not well organised, even with a low hour week. Low numbers of staffs in busy days and not well organised break distribution.

    Advice to Management

    General view in busy days, stress is like a chain and envolves all people, so if you give the right amount of care for each person of the chain, all will feel busy but will also feel that someone are looking after them, just that is enough keep everybody satisfied in busy day.

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

    Pros

    Nando's is an amazing company that seeks to better the lives of its workers by offering positions to them within the company which might otherwise seem impossible to reach. As a journalism student who had an interest in marketing, I never would have been able to get a job in the marketing industry. However, as a Nando's Student Brand Rep I have gained more experience in the marketing industry than some of my peers who are studying it at college. I can finally pursue a career in the industry I want thanks to Nando's.

    Cons

    There are no cons to this role as it is an amazing opportunity for any Nandoca to be involved in. However, as I am in my final year of college as well as working in the restaurant and doing the brand rep role, I have found that my workload is extremely heavy. This is more on my part though as I have decided to take on a lot.
