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

Pros

Panda offered a great bonus program (that is if the company had a good year). Also, Panda had a gym on-campus so associates could work out after work or during their meal break.

Cons

The worst about working at Panda was the work hours we were expected to keep. At time, my department was working 12-hour days and many times we were expected to work weekends on a moments notice. While I was employed with Panda, my life revolved around work.

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

    Pros

    Higher starting pay than most other fast food restaurants.
    Good tasting and fairly healthy food.
    Decent breaks.

    Cons

    Management focuses more on what the higher ups want instead of great customer service or employee treatment.
    Too much pushing of the brand identity and corporate lingo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on providing a good environment for employees and customers instead of forcing some dumb buzzword-filled corporate identity onto your hourly workers. Let's be real, it's FAST FOOD. Employees want real word, practical solutions and advice for the here and now, not meetings where we discuss "what panda express means to us."
