Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Panda Express part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

One free meal per 6+ hr shift, 20% discount for friends/family, food tastes good and is regularly monitored to keep fresh, environment is fast paced with endless duties so you'll never get bored, frequent raises for an entry-level job.

Cons

Standard uncomfortable fast-food uniform, you feel gross at the end after working with greasy food all day, fast paced in kitchen environment so you're often vulnerable to injuries, food is very unhealthy, obviously no career growth on food service jobs.

Advice to Management

Aggressive promotion and sample offers are definitely great for marketing, however we should respect the space of customers who obviously don't appreciate it and let them order their regular favorites without distraction.

    Very easy to manage up
    Get raises every 6 months depending on how you work and your manager.

    Cons

    Too high expectations, you gotta be a fast pace person and quick learner if not they will let you go. Manager doesn't put up with slow working and slow learner person.
    Little time on training.
    Make you walk around all day and talk to customer nonstop. Sometimes the customer looks annoyed on how you keep on bothering them.
    Make you take an online class everyday, ridiculous!
    Make you do say this five rule thing every time you see a customer
