If they like you for sure, they'll move you up if they don't forget it no matter how hard you try you'll never advance.

The environment was very diverse

The culture is you work hard and harder to prove yourself. You do online classes, attend meetings and conference calls weekly if you’re trying to be a manager. If you’re not, prepare to either:

1. Work in an extremely busy store and have swollen hands and a broken soul

2. Work in a slow store and deal with the DUMBEST drama you could possibly imagine.

PS, trying for management? I’ve seen people get denied assistant manager off of nothing but not having a good enough personality. If you’re not a textbook definition of American business leader, go-getter, team builder, or any other of those buzzwords... save yourself and find another 60k+ job for less stress.

It’s very fast paced and clean

Fast, busy, exciting, caring, encouraging

The environment is stressful depending what time it is (rush hour) and the people are nice for the most part…but if FOH needs anything they don’t always project their words so it’s sometimes hard for BOH to hear.

The manager is sometimes fun to talk with but not all the time, so I always keep my distance because I don’t want to be “buddy buddy” with them (cough**you will get taken advantage…promise)

Management is literally trained to help you develop and grow in the company and meeting multiple managers and even working at different locations throughout my career at panda I've noticed that they love to see growth and will help push you to be stronger especially when you ask and will do so at a good pace. Panda is a great place to work as long as you know how to manage your stress when there is a rush. I honestly regret leaving, but I would highly recommend panda to anyone looking for an entry-level job because they truly help you grow.

Fast paced

Theirs no team work everyone's on their own and have no interest in offering a hand, no communication and it would always be a mess for the next shift.

It is challenging but isn’t life? You grow as a person and with the company. Yes it gets stressful but what job doesn’t? Upper management is not about doing better it is BEING the best in people development. To be honest this job made a big impact on my life. So I can say I am grateful and I hope this helps anyone who joins.
