Pros: free lunch, hours, decent pay
Cons: short breaks, long hours (12 hour days sometimes), tough work, getting home late
A typical day was working a 12 hour shift, which is very grueling, difficult, and soul-sucking. The starting pay is decent and you're guaranteed a raise every 6 months, which is nice, but you start to wonder how much it's worth it. The management is pretty insane and obviously they don't care about their employees, but that's nothing that's exclusive to Panda. I adore my coworkers and frankly they're the only thing that's keeping me there, as I would be legitimately sad to leave them. We're like a family.
The hardest part of the job is probably dealing with the rude customers. I have to point out that it's always old/middle age people who complain about everything and never younger people. The most enjoyable part of the job is sharing the experience with my coworkers and having customers that aren't jerks.
I don't regret working here and I have learned a LOT about dealing with customers, work ethics, and compromising with your co-workers. It's definitely not a bad place to work, as you'll get the hours you need and the pay isn't too awful.
