    I have been working at Panda Express full-time (less than an year)


    You get free lunch break food
    You get Bonuses if the sales are very good
    You start at a fairly good salary
    The workers are nice and friendly
    Is a high chance to get promoted
    You get a lot of hours if you're free


    The customers are rude at times ( but thats everywhere)
    i worked almost every weekend so i was never free to do anything with family and friends over the weekend

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give everyone an equal amount of weekends off. e.g. One week some get the weekend off the next week the next batch of employees get the weekend off. because that can become annoying working every weekend and not having free time at the end of the week and is unfair for the ones working almost every weekend.

    Positive Outlook

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Panda Express.

    Interview Details

    After driving 100 miles to get to my fourth interview the district manager did not show up for our appointment...after waiting an hour the GM of the particular location we were to meet at informed me Id have to come back for a 5th interview to meet w the gentleman the appointment was originally set with and then for some reason conducted an identical interview to the 3rd interview that was also 100 miles away. During 100 mile drive home today Ive tried calling the "recruiter" numerous times to explain how disappointed I am and sent an email.
