Pretty Decent Summer Job

I worked at Panda Express full-time

Pros

I was hired at a newly opened Panda Express to work only for my summer vacation as a university student. Pay was as expected and I received free meals. I'd always wanted to work in food service at least once, so this was my opportunity to do so. Got along well with my managers and coworkers.

Cons

Fairly intensive work initially, although as I got more used to work there, that wasn't a big deal. Restaurant was newly opened, so we were somewhat understaffed. Occasionally, there were lulls in activity during the day without many customers to serve.

    I have been working at Panda Express part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Better pay than most jobs for younger students. Free food during breaks! Good prospects of moving up in the company.

    Cons

    Very labor intensive and fast pace job. Constantly on the move, especially if you work at busier store. You have to be a quick and efficient worker, no slouchers, you will slow the line down and upset the managers and your team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forced to say scripted greetings that sound totally fake. Need longer than 10 min breaks!
