    Panda Express has great benefits. We have 401k, health, dental, and vision health insurance. Also, we have life insurance provided to the associates. Just this year, we added a Flexible Saving Account for medical expenses. While you are working, you get to eat for free during your meal break and get 20% off for friends and family.

    The best thing would be the free food (during a break, you get a free meal with as much food as you want). The worst thing is the lack of any other benefits.

    If you work more than 30 hrs + per week and maintain it, you are qualified for the cheapest health benefit. Having health insurance through your workplace is better than struggling to find the best insurance which will cost too much alone. In the state of California, we are ALL required to have health insurance or else there will be a penalty. The penalty with no insurance is under $100 for the first year then after the fines will be doubled! Anyways, my benefit package currently is only dental and vision and both are the better packages than my previous job.

    The people (coworkers) are there to make you company, the salary is good, good hours, the customers can be really rude. But overall i enjoyed working at Panda. They have good benefits as well for dental, life and eye care insurance.

    I did not stay long enough to receive benefits. The plans required the usual 1+ employment with the company and I did not plan to stay that long.
