I have been working at Panda Express full-time for less than a year

Pros

Nice gym, discounts, plenty of learning opportunities and classes, stock options, 401k, health/dental/vision, team building events, halloween contest, easter celebration, leadership conferences in hawaii, nice coworkers.

Cons

Almost everyone was hired as a temp or contractor at some point. They will evaluate you for a long period of time before they hire you. You have to prove yourself that you're worth it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be truthful when you say we have a safe and empowering environment. Not everyone on the senior management team are open to take criticism. Stop the micromanaging!

    Pros

    The employees are friendly and easy to get along and the managers is great to work with. For someone who just started to work for the first time, this place is a good place to start off. It gives you a taste as to how to meet customer demands and above all team work.

    Cons

    It can become very busy and stressful.

    I worked at Panda Express part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One free meal per 6+ hr shift, 20% discount for friends/family, food tastes good and is regularly monitored to keep fresh, environment is fast paced with endless duties so you'll never get bored, frequent raises for an entry-level job.

    Cons

    Standard uncomfortable fast-food uniform, you feel gross at the end after working with greasy food all day, fast paced in kitchen environment so you're often vulnerable to injuries, food is very unhealthy, obviously no career growth on food service jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aggressive promotion and sample offers are definitely great for marketing, however we should respect the space of customers who obviously don't appreciate it and let them order their regular favorites without distraction.
