    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Panda Express in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and had an interview 3 days later on 06/05/14. I was referred through my family friend, whom helped me with the whole process. I came 2 days before the interview to drop off my resume. I was told the manager was interested in hiring me. I was surprised. I am a Senior in High School, with a lot of community service experience. The manager even signed my work permit, However, Work permits aren't supposed to be sign, unless they officially hire you. I thought I got the job, She even accepted my food handler certificate. I was even told to bring in a school id, and social security card. After that, I waited a week for a call. I called just to ask about the status of my application, 2 times. Each time, the manager wasn't available. 3 weeks past, 3rd time, the manager said that they have been busy with the other stores, training managers and such. She said she would call me back the next day. I never had a call back. My family friend called her on 06/27, she said that I have a SECOND INTERVIEW. On Monday, at the other panda location. I was ready of course, but I don't like how the manager doesn't call me herself. The other manager was nice. I came 15 mins early while he was interviewing someone else. He asked me questions while looking at my résumé, it was great, with familiar questions. I even asked my own questions, how did Panda Express affect you ?, and such. The interview went great, I felt confident. He even asked to keep my resume, AND ask if my number on their was the best way to contact me ! A week past, and I called the manager myself, I was asked about the status of my application, he said positions are full right now, but we'll contact you once available.....

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Panda Express in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Panda Express and about a week later received an e-mail. They e-mail said that they were having an open interview and to come in around 9 am. I got there 15 minutes early and waited outside until one of the worker finally opened the door. I was the second person to write my name down on the sheet to be interviewed, but was called last. When I was finally called, we went outside to a small table and the interview began. He asked some questions that was not relevant to the job. The interviewer was so rude! His phone rang just as I was about to answer a question. He answered it in the middle of the interview and had a full conversation for about 15 minutes before he came back to me. Then he asked if I had any questions and then the interview was over.

    I applied online – interviewed at Panda Express in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    That was the easiest and most relaxed interview I've probably ever had. And also the stupidest. I got there about 15 minutes before my interview was to start and when I went in to the restaurant, the people who were going to interview me were not ready at all. They didn't know my name and had to ask me for my last name because they could not find me in the database. When the interview finally began, it was really relaxed and easy going. The interviewer asked me things about my resume, like where I'm going to school and studying, where I went to high school, etc. Then they asked me "Why panda?" and when I replied, they seemed really shocked by my answer because I was prepared. Overall, they really liked me and was very impressed, but the only issue they had was that I was going back to school in the end of August, so it would be a summer job, while they were looking for a long-term employee
