    I have been working at Panda Express part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -you do not have to talk with customers if you work in the back as a cook,
    - if you work in the front its easy
    -time goes by fast

    Cons

    So much work for one individual to do. You have the responsibilities of: cooking chowein,white rice, and friend rice OR cook the entrees on or the other. but on top of that you have to ; mop and sweep the floor, cut vegetables throughout the day, wash the dishes throughout the day, constantly moving non stop even if it isnt that busy. Makes you feel you deserve more than 9 dollars an hour for doing so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put another person in the back to help out, it will greatly help

    I have been working at Panda Express full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, high growth company. There is a huge focus on growing and learning. The founders do not simply solely focus on the money (but that is always a high concern as with any company).

    Cons

    While the focus on continious learning is great, the founder likes to dictate what learning you should do - it is "optional" and "highly encouraged" in other words - if you want to stay you had better do it. And you are expected to pay for the seminars yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes senior management does not behave in line with the mission and values - don't expect others to "do what I say, not what I do"
