A day in the life of an Panda Express Associate
Associate (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – July 19, 2016
A typical day at Panda is constantly being on your feet and always doing something. Whether it be serving guests their food, handling money, stocking, cleaning, anything. You're guaranteed to be kept busy.
From Panda, I've learned a lot. I've learned how to balance work, school, hobbies, and how to be prepared for anything and everything. My management team is great, they push you to do better at your job which in turn will incorporate into your everyday life. Coworkers are awesome because we were or are students and working at Panda. So we understood the struggle of being a working student which created a solid bases for friendships making us a closer team and helps the store run more smoothly.
The hardest part of the job would be the most enjoyable and that would be the unexpectedness of it all. Because besides being physically on your feet all the time, you're kept on your toes so you're learning something new everyday.
Free food on shift, 20% discount, hours are good but can be grueling sometimes.
If you're not used to a lot of work very frequently, you can burnout very quickly.
