Solid Restaurant Corporately, But the Store Depends on Employees
Server/Cashier (Former Employee) – Morgan Hill, CA – January 10, 2018
While working at Panda Express, I grew a lot as an employee. I took my small job seriously, and it paid off. Although I did not work there for very long-- I believe it was 7 months-- I was quickly a candidate for promotion. I frequently had compliments from customers, but those compliments were often dulled by criticisms from customers, directed not at me but at the store's performance in general. Sadly, the environment I worked in was not supportive. There was a lot of gossip and rivalry. My manager took her job seriously and did her best , but the majority of her employees did not respect her very much, and they didn't put all their effort into their job. I enjoyed learning new things and meeting new people at Panda, but I did not feel comfortable in that environment. Regardless, as a corporate company, they worked very hard to keep their restaurants up to standard, and it was clear that our store was not.
Free lunches, easy scheduling
Bad communication, many rules don't get followed
