    I worked at Panda Express full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked here through high school. Easy restaurant work except for the dishwasher. The sauces get stuck to the trays and you pretty much need boiling water to take off dry sauce off the tray! Went from fried rice/chow mein/dishwasher to prep and main cook. As the main cook, you will be making everything on the menu except fried rice and chow mein and spring rolls/veggie rolls. Very fast pace during lunch hour and drive through is always busy! Our boss also gave us coins from the year of the chinese calender.

    Cons

    Restaurant pay.
    When done with shift, you will smell like oil/orange chicken.
    The aprons are provided but they always have a funky smell.

    I worked at Panda Express part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hourly rate wasn't too bad compared to other fast food companies.

    Cons

    Under staffed.
    Worked you to the bone.
    Lots of regulations broken.
    Management was terrible at scheduling.
    No funding for required uniform other than the hat, shirt, and apron.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be wary of your employees and their whereabouts. Check on management to see that the schedule is fair and rotating. Let employees take there breaks and lunches on time and never let an employee work off the clock.
