I enjoyed working for Panda Express because of all the work experience i gained working there. My co-workers were all enjoyable to work with and gave me great job advice. The hardest part was working full 12 hour days but i managed. I enjoyed eating there.

Working under pressure because standards are high and in combination with executing daily operations. Management could be better.
What I learned: Self development and control of my own power
The most enjoyable part of the job was training new associates and seeing them grow.
The hardest part was being short staff
This is a very rewarding job if you are passionate about developing yourself and others. there may be some bad days but there are a lot of good days too. In the end, this job has help me become a better me.

Person In Charge (PIC) (Former Employee) – South Euclid, OH – February 23, 2017
The company is a great company to work for overall. The company is focused on education and encouraging betterment for their employees to take home the lessons they learned at work and apply to their everyday life. I do believe the only negative I've seen is some upper management not adjusting to the environment of the new expansion locations.
Free lunch and company encourages advancement in work and life
Some upper management not in touch with lower level employees
Cashier (Former Employee) – Tolleson, AZ – February 21, 2017
I enjoyed working at Panda Express. It was really fun learning how to make some of the food they serve. I would take customers' orders and make their plates. My favorite part was taking drive thru orders.
Counter Help and Cashier (Former Employee) – Carson, CA – February 15, 2017
Panda thinks by offering good wages, bonus, and benefits that it will distract associates from the terrible management. The managers are not up to standard. Majority of the management is corrupt and incapable of conducting themselves in a business setting. Most managers or even district managers are incapable of sending out a professional e-mail. I honestly could not take this job seriously for the simple fact that I felt more educated and qualified than the staff that was hired above me.
Associate (Former Employee) – Coeur d'Alene, ID – February 12, 2017
It was a great place to work. Management was a little on the strict side but otherwise, was fantastic. Was all around a great company to work for. We cleaned and organized the majority of the day when we weren't cooking or serving. I learned how to make chow mien. It was a good learning experience.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – February 9, 2017
Panda Express has strict rules and regulations that are a must to abide by. Working here I learned that having a strict system, whether it be regarding customer service or cooking the food, helps the day run smoothly and helps prevent disorder. I typical day at work is busy and consists of delivering great customer service as well as delectable food. I enjoyed the manner in which corporate as well as management treated their employees.
LEAD COUNTER (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – February 8, 2017
a typical work day consisted of constant cleaning and food prep with lots of dishes to be washed and cooked. i always learned something new from cutting and making seasonal dishes. management is the best here. easy going managers and supervisors. the hardest part of the job was keeping foods fresh and dishes washed. the most enjoyable part of my job was working with awesome coworkers and creating a relationship with loyal costumers.
free food, unlimited drink station, great pay and benifits
Team Member (Current Employee) – Tyler, TX – February 8, 2017
I have worked at Panda for almost six months now and I have had to fight hours every step of the way. Managers are extremely picky but never assist in tasks. The environment itself is extremely chaotic and stressful.
