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

    Pros

    Competitive pay for entry level positions, professional work environment

    Cons

    You really need to make sure you work at a somewhat busy location, otherwise they'll cut your hours because they just wont need you around. Scheduling can be kind of a joke at times, and you may find yourself going back and forth with management to try to get a concrete schedule down.

    Advice to Management

    Someone should advance from Counter help to Lead Counter faster generally because the training and experience needed for the promotion can be acquired very quickly, given that the employee is a consistent worker.


  2. "Iffy working conditions, but they definitely give you great restaurant experience"

    Pros

    Free food, patient with training, will tell you what you're doing wrong and how to improve, decent pay, good hours, your uniform is given to you for free besides the shoes, belt, pants, and socks, customers are understanding and friendly for the most part, breaks, you stay busy all of the time so your shift goes by fast, friendly manager, great pay

    Cons

    Favoritism, the favorited coworkers usually stand around and do nothing besides talk to the manager, some coworkers will belittle you while you're training but they are just trying to make sure you're doing everything right, lots of cleaning, long hours so expect to work twelve hour days with two thirty minute breaks, lots of competition between coworkers, coworkers not communicating and telling you to do multiple things at once (ex- work front of the house and clean the parking lot), experienced a coworker grab my arm and hit me on the side with the back of her hand twice.
