Mission: Deliver exceptional Asian dining experiences by building an organization where people are inspired to better their lives.
On average we open a new store every 3 days, which means every 3 days you have an opportunity to grow with the largest family-owned American Chinese Restaurant concept in America. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ7Hf
We are happy to collaborate with the Brooklyn-based artist Jing Wei to bring the traditions of Chinese New Year to life.

I worked at Panda Express part-time
-At least in my store co-workers were very nice, as well as Manager
-For the most part weekends were the busiest, you had that work rush while weekdays were chill days
-Manager was understanding and was very helpful in developing you as an employee
-If your in High school you have to take the afternoon shifts and if your new for the most part you'll get the afternoon shifts on the weekends as well
-You rarely get morning shifts unless you specify with your manager
Advice to Management
Panda Express takes claims from customers very seriously. There was a time where a customer called corporate complaining that one of our employees (name was mentioned as well) was rude to them. But that employee did not even work at our location. What I understood is that our store could've gotten fine and our manager got the blame for it.
I applied online. I interviewed at Panda Express (Chicago, IL).
There would be several HR representative who are going to have phone interview with the candidates. In the mean time, the candidates would have an opportunity to have an in-person interview with the regional manager.
