Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panda Express in May 2017.

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. The manager told me that they're looking to get as much help as they can and they would call me if I had the job or not

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Panda Express in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by a family member who happens to work corporate for Panda. Once my family member got in touch with the GM of the Panda location I wanted to work at, she called me right way for an interview. The interview was scheduled two days after she called at a Panda Express. The day of the interview she was 30 minutes late. Little did she know that the Panda location of the interview was closed because of electrical issues, so we had the interview at a restaurant next door. The interview went well, but I think I messed up after the interview. It's been over a month since then, and I still haven't gotten a call back.

    Interview

    When the lady interviewing me asked me a question she would look around or check her phone when I was answering, very unprofessional. The questions she asled were average questions that you could expect at most fast food businesses.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Panda Express (Lodi, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied at the beginning of July 2016 and got a call two weeks later to go to an interview within a couple of hours that day. They made me sit down for over 20 minutes while the team was busy. Interview was just basic questions and information about yourself. Research on the company history as they tend to ask what you know about the company. Interview took about 20-30 minutes.

    Interview

    It was brief. Came in about 20 minutes early. Started interview before set time, lasted about 15 minutes. Manager didn't ask many questions about Panda Express, mostly about my availability and extracurricular activities. At the end he said they would contact me if they wanted a second interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Panda Express (Apple Valley, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I walked in and was told to wait for the manager and assistant manager to come out. The wait was no more than 5-10 minutes, and when they came out we went to a more secluded table, shook hands, introduced ourselves, and begun. Questions were basic generic interview questions. The interview was no more than half an hour, and afterwards they offered me complimentary food and drink. They were very gracious, even though I personally was socially awkward. Haven't heard back yet about whether or not I'm hired.
