I have been working at Panda Express part-time for more than a year

Pros

Better pay than other fast food restaurants. Great benefits. Free food. Paid Training. Panda provides the uniforms for you

Cons

Room for advancement is tough. Work around food a lot so you might smell like food at the end of the day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure to set rules and regulations in order to provide new employees with the proper tools to succeed in the workplace.

    I worked at Panda Express full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Culture of People Development. Many classes and opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Culture. Anything over done is just that - over done. Many of the classes, while not "mandatory" are MANDATORY. The CEO gets overly involved in people's personal lives and in a judgmental manner. If one is not ready to do EXACTLY as told, this is not the place for you. For those who need or want an almost cult-like environment - you've found the right place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really care about people's development, there has to be an environment with no fear. Where people can develop in more than the one way dictated by Panda. This is said to be acknowledged but is not. Be honest with your employees. Have the integrity you ask of them.

    I worked at Panda Express full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free meals, that's the best

    Cons

    worst job ever, this place was terrible they expect one person to cook chow ming, fried rice, teriyaki chicken while all the dishes have to be washed without even a spray gun all that for less than 9 bucks an hour, I mean I wouldn't be complaining so much if they at least play 15 bucks an hour. The place I worked was very busy there was no time to breath only work and work all day everyday . if the location was slower this would have been better.
