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.

Panda Express is a wonderful place to work if you like customer service type jobs. The management is great and the most General Mangers are well trained for their positions. You will have a great time work at a Panda Express near you.

Management was terrible, no supervisor on duty, lack of team work, workers are not professional, workers were rude, too uptight. Management was never there only about 1-2 days and then management would be gone for the whole week.

I've worked at a couple of different panda expresses before just to get more hours and in each one had a horrible manager. They either don't help their employees, aren't there, or just standing around on their phones. The only reason I'm still working here is because I haven't found a new job yet. Regular employees are made to do things that only managers do and still don't get a pay raise. Managers have a habit of disappearing for hours without telling anyone so when a manger is needed they are nowhere to be found and problems occur. The breaks make no sense a 10 minute and a 30 minute break why can t there be just two 20 minute breaks especially if you only work 5 hours and cant get a 30 minute break.
Counter Help/ Cashier Handler (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA 91506 – January 18, 2018
Panda Express has taught me a lot about manage skills such as multitasking. Because I was in charge of cash handling in both the dine-in and drive thru, I was responsible for making sure my fellow associates and I are not over or short in cash. It was a very challenging job but I could have not done it without my co-workers lending me a helping hand every time I needed it. In conclusion, my overall work experience at Panda Express was amazing and would not think twice of referring anyone who would like to be a part of the Panda Express team.

The Panda Express that I worked for was located in the mall, and that was the most difficult part about the job.. that mall was always busy so the line was never ending so the only time you were able to get away from the line was to get a 30 min break time before you return back to your station.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – January 17, 2018
They uphold the highest expectation because of the high pay. You get many visits from your bosses and even visits from the owner. store must be clean at all time including the smallest details like the trash cans. because of the workload it is difficult to retain associates. determination and hard work can result in large bonuses
Assistant Manager/Shift Leader/Line Cook (Current Employee) – Stone Mountain, GA – January 16, 2018
Anybody can't just work at Panda. If you can't handle the heat, get out the kitchen. You need to have a friendly and inviting smile and personality. Customers attitude are to much at times. It's very fast paced and involves a lot of patience, multi-tasking, organization, and cleaning. This is a job that also help you develop and find yourself, by taking a bigger responsibilities and promotions. Bigger pay compared to most American Chinese/ fast food restaurants.
Panda Express (Current Employee) – Grants Pass, OR – January 15, 2018
I like panda because there is always work to be done. it keeps you on your toes at all times, and it's a very fast paced working environment. A day at work consists of prepping food, washing dishes,and cooking food.
