    Interview

    I applied online and they called me the next day to schedule an interview for that very afternoon. I arrived 20 minutes early for my interview and had to wait for quite some time (like 30 minutes or so) . Interview Questions was simple and straight to the point.

    two in person interviews, both within a week. Then I got a call back really recently. It was all an easy process, Panda always needs workers anyways, it seems as if they're always hiring due to many people quitting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Panda Express (Oxnard, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was odd, because I sent in an unfinished application but they called for an interview anyway. Maybe they really needed more help or something, I wasn't told why even after it was brought up. It was very casual. I was wearing a dress shirt, dress pants, and a tie, but it was essentially a semi-formal loosely-scheduled conversation with the manager on one of the restaurant tables.

    The manager actually let me into the kitchen to try mixing up the chow mein for a bit. Didn't seem too professional or structured, and while the manager sort of teased and stuff, he was pretty friendly, and the interview went well.

    GM was cold and unfriendly and would not answer or reply to the first few calls. The actual interview was standard outside of his distant attitude. Afterwards, he said he would call back within 24 hours but did not do so after three days.
