Featured Review

Current Employee - Counter Staff

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

Pros

Panda Express is a great place to work in my opinion. The location I work at, everybody is friendly and helpful, they always have your best interest. The company is truly a wonderful place to grow... and somewhere you’d want to see as a 2nd home. I like how professional and well-managed it is. They see everything you do wether it’s good or bad, and they work with it.

Cons

Panda has very high expectations. You have to be on your 100% everyday at work, their isnt any time to slack, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Advice to Management

Understanding your employees situations makes work a lot more enjoyable.

Former Employee - Store Manager

I worked at La Madeleine full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

As a former Manager for 14 years with La Madeleine here in DFW area, I loved it, everyday was a challenging to get better, fast paste, you learn a lot as a manager. More support is available when... needed, constant training. It became my second family. Long hours though, with young family with kids, I had to take a pause a little bit. But I'll recommend anyone to apply and work for La Madeleine especially if you have a Management Experience.

Cons

Long hours, but worth it.

Advice to Management

As a manager, be ready to work, roll down your sleeves and work. You don't give orders, but you must be a team player, help your associates, maybe in the kitchen, cashiers, wash dishes when necessary..., clean tables when necessary, be ready to deal with customers by being pro-active and use the tools to help client. You never say NO to the customers, you make it happen.
