I have been working at Panda Express part-time

Pros

Pay,Free food,Flexible hours,Great Employees,Bonuses.

One thing that I really do like working for Panda Express is my co-workers. We were a family and we tend to stick together and help each other out when one would fall behind.

Cons

Chinese manager tends to favor chinese employees than other employees who are not chinese. From my experience, I had to learn to use the cash register in two days and on top of that I had to learn to close and open the store within a month. The new chinese people that my manager hired are horrible. One girl hasn't even learn how to touch the cash register. And the other guy spends his time in back just talking to my manager and to this other chinese guy. My manager loves them for god who knows why. My manager even gave him a raise when he all he does is talk. But anyways, I wore white socks to work one day and he yells at me in front of my co-workers. He even told me that I will never find another place to work even if I do quit when I told him that I won't be staying there forever. It's degrading and I never felt so embarrassed in my life. Sad to say, I had enough and turned in my resignation letter the next day.

Advice to Management

Treat everyone fairly please. I am sick and tired of working hard for someone who treats me like I'm some worthless being.

    Pros

    Decent pay, owners love their employees, they take all GMs and up to Hawaii every 2 yrs for a conference

    Cons

    All upper management in west Texas are lazy, and want us to do what they say not what they do! They create a huge hostile environment. "100% intensity and work ability" is what they want but how can we put 100% when the Mum, ACO,rdo, VPO and zip only put 50%? Something is not right! And when we don't put 100% they threaten our jobs... Who would want to work in that environment?!

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and stop being hypocrites! Stop the politics and favoritism! Focus on your stores and GMs! Take care of your employees!! Put 100% and the employees will too!
