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.
