    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

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


    I got an interview fairly quickly, they called me and I was interviewed the same day. The interview was at the location I applied to. I never heard back, and calling for an update didn't lead me anywhere.

    How do you handle disagreements in the workplace?
