Working at Panda is a challenge every day. The day always involves you having to balance the needs of the restaurant with customer satisfaction. The ability to serve the exceptional asian dining experience customers want while producing the excellent dishes is essential. I have learned a lot about time management, and how to balance work with seeing my family and university classes. The culture of the restaurant is very encouraging and gives us the ability to efficiently work with great attitudes. The job can be difficult like when the days dishes pile up and must be done by anyone with the time to do them. The best part of my job is seeing the happy customers enjoying our food.

District managers are very race’s and rude if your not Korean they won’t promote you or even hire you. I was witness when they use to interview great different Candidates but they would just go for Koreans.
Pros

This is my 6 years working. The management team always change pretty often. Make more changes and the bad things are changes the schedule when they already put for a week a head without telling to the worker. The manager couldn't do anything cause the assistant manager made the schedule.

It's a good place to work especially if you like the food because you get up to 4 free meals. Also, the schedule are really flexible as long as you talk to your supervisor about your needs.

It's a fast-paced kind of work. It requires quick and efficient service towards the customers. It also requires wide understanding on different kinds of personality and people you can deal with in an everyday basis. Most especially I always have fun working with my fellow associates.

Promises of promotion and raises go unanswered. The environment is degrading and toxic. Look elsewhere, and take a job here only if that is your only option.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Awful management, disorganized, dishonest employer

on a typical day at panda we serve customers, table touch, and clean the environment. the management is pretty good, co-workers are almost like friends. the hardest part of the job would probably be the customers. and the most enjoyanle part would be the customers as well....you have your good and bad customers, its very bittersweet.
Pros
free lunch on break, health insurance benefits with 30+ hours

Personally, I believe it is a great organization where there is high opportunity to grow within. I have learned how to cook, regularly day operations, and how to become a leader throughout the establishment. Also, I have learned that upper management above me have great knowledge about the organization, but not everything so sometimes you will be at loss. I believe the hardest part of the job is the physical will that comes with working in the kitchen. Also, I believe waiting for promotion or growth is tiresome, especially when I know I can do it. I love people enjoying my company and my food I cook. Being fast and good at what I do I feel proud that I am part of a team accomplishing one goal. The goal to deliver exceptional Asian dining experiences by building an organization where people are inspired to better their lives.
Pros
Free employee meals, 401k, health benefits, family and friend discounts
Cons
30 minute breaks are not paid

I learn a lot about running a company here.
It was an accounting place.

Everyone was really friendly on their own way

I was working straight for the CEO who he became more than my boss, he became such an inspiration for me to keep looking up ahead. The perfect roll model.
