General Manager (Former Employee), Oswego, ILOctober 13, 2014
Pros: pay is very good
Cons: everything
No... Just no...

Worked multiple 100 hour plus weeks

They try to take over your life...

It is a flat out cult and if you do not embody there way of life you will be looked at in a negative light....

Very hands on... cleaning out grease traps, cleaning bathrooms, ALL BOH WORK and FOH work.

Fun working place.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee), North Miami Beach, FLOctober 12, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: heathcare, short breaks.
Typical day for me is open the store make sure everything is in order to be served, making sure all the registers are ready and counted.
I have learned that everyday is a different day and a different task, my co-workers are working as hard as me and the best part about my job is serving customers and making sure that they are happy.

Over all i did learn how to become a leader and went beyond with the skills i learned.
Lead Counter (Former Employee), Kapolei, HIOctober 3, 2014
Pros: free lunch. birthday cake. bonuses
Cons: low raises
A typical day at work is always friendly, cheerful and exciting to know what kind of day it will be busy or slow.I learned how to train new hires and also interview them. i learned micro soft word and excel, email inventory and ordering supplies, cooking, and preping ingredients. The management was like any other manager in any other food company polite – more... energetic and always willing to teach you new things. my coworkers were also very friendly and fun to work with. i cant think of anything that was hard about this job right now but over all best thing about the job was coming to work and knowing i have to and will beat the sales from last year today. – less

Opening the store within 30 minutes
Counter Helper (Former Employee), San Jose, CAOctober 2, 2014
Pros: free food during work hours
Learning to open a store is a challenge specially when you don't really have the experience in this case i had only 30 minutes to open the store on my own i was in charged of opening cashiers, setting up the steam table, putting the dining table chairs back into place, having to refill the buckets of new sanitized water. The hardest part of the job – more... at times would be when our restaurant would get super packed I've worked with some good co-workers who always knew how to help each other and make our line go faster. They enjoyable part was working as a team. – less

Pays well but comes with a lot of work.
Lead Counter (Current Employee), Kyle, TXSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: free meals, good pay, flexible hours
Cons: long shifts, irritating rules, and a lot of work
Panda Express can be a great place to work if you are looking to move up in the company or want a flexible well paying job, however the catch is that there are a lot of seemingly useless rules and a lot of work. Even if you have a cool manager it won't matter because it is a corporation and not franchised. There are many instances where you may need – more... to work 12-13 hour shifts, some people (such as I) liked that however others may not. Typically you will be serving guests and running the drive thru, while making sure everything is clean. If it is a "slow day", you will be detail cleaning, which at least makes the time go by fast, but can be equally tedious. You may feel unappreciated there, but that will depend on who you work for and who is the ACO and such. – less

Panda was my best job so far.
Food Server (Former Employee), Aurora, COSeptember 17, 2014
I loved working at panda this was my first job after I had my daughter.
In the beginning when the store first opened everything was good. I had good hours my pay checks where exciting. then my manager started hiring more employees. we got really bad over staffed. manager started cutting my hours to where id only work twice a pay period. so I moved on – more... to target. – less
