Task-oriented, number driven, and a pretentious environment.

Allow creativity and individuality in your people to come through. Have trust in your associates, treat them well because associates will treat your customers the same. To create a loving environment, you must first love your associates unconditionally for they are your greatest assets.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Panda Express part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Better pay than most jobs for younger students. Free food during breaks! Good prospects of moving up in the company.

    Cons

    Very labor intensive and fast pace job. Constantly on the move, especially if you work at busier store. You have to be a quick and efficient worker, no slouchers, you will slow the line down and upset the managers and your team.

    Advice to Management

    Forced to say scripted greetings that sound totally fake. Need longer than 10 min breaks!


  2. "Nice place, hard work"

    I have been working at Panda Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    free food, nice customers, calm manager

    Cons

    It doesn't matter what your position is in the store, you will have to clean clean clean.
    Very tiring.
    Not ever enough staffing. Only 2-3 people serving food, doing cash-register and drive-through. 5 people total in the store, gets crazy during rush-hour.

    Advice to Management

    More of an advice to the company, get a vacuum and better brooms, it is impossible to get all the rice from under the tables and everywhere.
