    Counter Help Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Panda Express (New York, NY) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I received an email about a couple days after applying, asking if I would be available for an interview the following week, I said yes and they gave me a time. The interview was held at another location since they are in the process of opening Panda Express in my city. The interview was easier than I anticipated and fairly quick. They were really nice and friendly. They told me they would let me know in two days if I got the job. Later the same day of the interview, they sent an email asking for information to conduct a criminal background check, and then two days later they called asking when I could visit the closest Panda to sign paperwork and discuss some things. When I went, I signed all the paperwork, we decided when I would return for training, they gave me the uniform aside from pants and shoes, and that's it so far. Overall really great! (:

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Panda Express in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online. A few days later, I received a phone call. The manager wanted to know if I could meet for an interview that day. I said yes and we agreed to meet at Starbucks. I got there not knowing who I was looking for, so I texted him and he found me. We sat in a couple of leather chairs and just chatted. It wasn't bad at all.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panda Express (Terre Haute, IN) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I only had one interview and was called back within a week which was nice. This is your standard interviewing process asking about your future plans and how you could contribute to their company from past experiences. It only lasted about 15 minutes and was probably one of the easiest interviews I have done.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me what I would tell a customer if they asked for orange chicken with extra orange sauce. The correct answer is that we don't alter our recipes. Its not the answer I was expecting since I thought the customer is always suppose to be right.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Panda Express.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straightforward. I had an initial interview with an assistant manager. I believe this was the "gatekeeper" interview. Your typical questions, such as your strengths and weaknesses. What you would do in this situation. About a week later I had an interview with the manager. I was quizzed on order tags and other values the company has.
