The pay is great but the work is fast paced and the hours are long but flexible. The environment may be challenging and stressful for some , but I believe it is well worth it for the benefits and opportunities provided.

Pros

Free employee meals Non-management team sick hours

Cons

Overworked. Work here and you will be overworked because “panda pays you a lot” so managers love to throw that in your face to reason why they over work you. Hard to hire new people because they all quit because of how demanding this job is. They pride themselves on work life balance but trust me that is just a figment of their imagination. I applied for part-time but was constantly working full-time when I tried to reduce my hours I was told to wait. Is this not based on my availability? I worked 5 days a week and had to fight tooth and nail to stay at 5 days. Their benefits? They charge you every pay check for your health care coverage. I’ve only had health care coverage for less than 6 months and they have taken out for my coverage each paycheck since totaling over $300 Management team needs to really go over the panda mission and values all over again because they certainly do not embody what they preach. Because they hold power they abuse it so often that they put more work on their associates so they can chit chat and be on their phone. And you can forget about your 10 minutes breaks. Panda has already been sued twice for this since I’ve started working about 4 years ago. Management team does not allow you to take your 10 minutes break. We are told to prioritize our 30 minutes breaks first and that we will get our 10 minutes breaks during preclosing which never happens. If you work an 8 hour shift you are lucky if you even get one 10 minutes breaks.

Advice to Management

Lead by example and learn to not abuse your power.
