Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panda Express.

Interview

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.

Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Panda Express (Wheeling, IL).

    Interview

    Just asked about personal interest and problem solving. They generally want to know if you'd be a team player or leader. They want people that like to learn and that don't have attitude (especially for back of the house).

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Panda Express.

    Interview

    It was very laid back and easy going. They gave me a water cup and instructed me to wait for my interviewer. The interview lasted around 20-25 minutes. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I talked about myself and my passions and why I wanted to work there and where I saw myself years ahead.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panda Express (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    Applied in stores for the position. Got a call from the manager to come in and interview. What they are looking for is a person who follows their company mission, so google that beforehand. Why you are interested in working with the company. And # 1 trait they look for is a pro active person! In all my years their, that is what they love most and look for in promotions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panda Express (Lake Worth, FL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    1 week of waiting for a phone call, ended up having to call myself. Employer could not figure out how to use the website so I had to come in and help (before I was hired, so no pay). Had to call back because he didn't know what to do after. For the interview, I came in and I learned more about his life than he did about mine.
