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

Pros

I liked working here as a first job because they seemed to be mostly okay with someone making small mistakes. They knew it is bound to happen so they're pretty happy to help out and fix your issues. You also get a lot of customer service experience.

Cons

Management can be a bit iffy. Sometimes the hours or hard but it's not unbearable.

Advice to Management

Please follow up with the store managers and check up on them periodically. It was a shame to see my store manager following company protocol a little too loosely.

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

    Pros

    Worked here through high school. Easy restaurant work except for the dishwasher. The sauces get stuck to the trays and you pretty much need boiling water to take off dry sauce off the tray! Went from fried rice/chow mein/dishwasher to prep and main cook. As the main cook, you will be making everything on the menu except fried rice and chow mein and spring rolls/veggie rolls. Very fast pace during lunch hour and drive through is always busy! Our boss also gave us coins from the year of the chinese calender.

    Cons

    Restaurant pay.
    When done with shift, you will smell like oil/orange chicken.
    The aprons are provided but they always have a funky smell.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees!
