I have been working at Panda Express full-time (More than a year)
Panda Express has truly changed my life. I’ve never been with a company that cares for its people as much as Panda does. This company constantly pushes us to reach our highest potential and to become never satisfied. Pandas love deepens within its people as its goal is to have all Managers become homeowners. They selflessly give us tools and resources to achieve this monumental goal. Best Company thus far!
Make sure to have Work Life Balance!
