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

    Pros

    The most important thing Panda employees focus on is customer service. To inspire people to better their lives and give everyone a great experience so that when they leave, it will be with a smile.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be very busy and a few employees do not show up. We may be understaffed but it is still our job to keep things going along. So we work three even four times harder than before.

    Advice to Management

    Really make sure your employees are okay, let them know "Okay TEAM you are all doing a great job!" Reassurance of our performance makes us want to keep it up and give us the sort of energy we need to push through. After all we are a team.
