Bishop's Stortford - Anonymous Review
I hope people will read this and take it into consideration before giving this Nandos their money or god forbid, let their daughter work there. As the mum of a teenage girl who has been affected by the management’s actions in this restaurant, I believe everyone should know what goes on here. First off, the manager didn’t do ANY reference checks before hiring people. This included a man in his 30’s who sexually harassed several underage girls. When several of the girls went to the manager, she did nothing instead telling them “you wouldn’t care if a fit guy was speaking to you like that”. The girls believed it was their faults it was happening, and it continued, thinking nothing would be done.
We found out this man had previously been fired from previous jobs due to the same thing. Had a reference check been sought, it wouldn’t have happened. Had the manager taken the complaints of the young girls seriously, it wouldn’t have escalated to the point where police got involved.
The manager herself has bragged to staff about having sex with a co-worker in the fridge and told others if they wanted to ‘get off’ in the store, to do it in the electrical cupboard as it locks from the inside.
One of the male managers, Cole, repeatedly sexually harasses female staff by telling them how horny he is and tells them they have to “flash their tits” before they’re allowed to leave. Again, this has been told to the manager Linsey, who just sweeps it under the rug as the male manager is a friend of hers.
The manager continuously sends abusive members to staff on their whatapps group (that they have to join, which gives staff access to everyone’s phones number. This is how male members of staff can get female staff members phones numbers). She has also sent this group drunken videos of herself at 1am and a photo of her own ass. At the recent staff Christmas party, she encouraged staff to binge drink and drunkenly hit on younger male staff members, making them feel very uncomfortable.
Nandos head office has been informed of ALL of the above complaints, but it’s just being swept under the rug. So PLEASE rethink going to this establishment and PLEASE do not let your kid work here.
