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

    Pros

    Easy work to do, with various jobs around the kitchen. There are few strict guidelines to meet, and hours are very flexible. Excellent job for a college student.

    Cons

    The job is fairly mind-less and doesn't contribute to an advancing education. The pay is near minimum-wage, but that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    It would be fruitful for management to have a heavier hand in guaranteeing shift replacements. Often parts of shits would be left uncovered because the employee was unable to find a replacement and management did little to remedy the situation.

    I worked at Panda Express full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay for fast-food, flexible hours, great job to have in college/

    Cons

    Work environment is determined by your GM and your coworkers. Coworkers will only work as hard as their managers. Higher ups have favorites and it is difficult to move up unless they have a special liking to you.

    Advice to Management

    Get a chance to know every single one of your employees and not simply have favorites because sometimes the one lowest on the ladder has the most potential to grow.
