    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Panda Express (United States)

    Interview

    Two managers sat down with me and asked me about myself. Then they had a list of questions and I don't think they asked all of them. I think they asked me questions and based upon my answers, they asked follow up questions and also used that to gauge what other questions they should ask.
