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

    Pros

    Good food
    Pay a little more than minimum wage.

    Cons

    Are asked to work above your position but do not promote because they do not want to pay you more.
    They want you to be very fake and follow their values.
    Most managers are very lazy and expect you to do their work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people who do not know what they are doing and try promoting from within people that have been in the company and know how the company works. Just because someone has a degree does not mean they can work as a manager in food service. Most of the new managers hired are lazy and have no common sense.

    I worked at Panda Express part-time

    Pros

    The pay is usually above minimum wage which is great, food is free on breaks, and the company tries to uphold to their values.

    Cons

    Working the front is easy but working BOH can be really hectic. Managers expect way too much from the employees at times. Additional training programs are constantly "recommended" by superiors. Overall working part-time can be great but I wouldn't recommend staying with the company too long.

    Advice to Management

    Try to uphold the values that you promote. Stop nitpicking and criticizing at every little detail and tell us that we did a good job once in a while.
