    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panda Express (Redlands, CA).

    Interview

    It was an open interview that started at 1pm so i got there around1:10. I was the first applicant that arrived so i just signed into a roll sheet and put my name, number and email. The GM came up to me and asked for my name and he printed my application that I've submitted online. Two people then came and interviewed me for a while, it's one of the longer interviews that I've had. They were easy to talk and were really interested in the things you said and why you've said it. Definitely bring your resume because they really asked me questions about the things I put on my resume. They asked me a good number of questions and it was really nice. When we were done they said they would contact in 2 days if I got the job, but they never contacted me sadly. But it was one of the better interviews I've had.
