Panda Express

April, 2015

15-April-Panda-Express-01Panda Express is go-to favorite for so many of us in Hawaii. And the company that just happens to be famous for delicious Chinese American fare, and especially for its Orange Chicken, is also one of Hawaii’s best place places to work!

John Zhang, the regional director for the Hawaii region—which includes 32 locations across Hawaii, Guam, and Alaska—is proud that his company works hard to create opportunities for its team of 600 employees. “We’re focused on our people and empowering them to make a better life for themselves.,” he says. “Our associates don’t just come here to get a job, they come to grow their careers. We promote from within, and many of our managers get recruited to other locations throughout the country.”

Associates enjoy a solid benefits package, very competitive pay, a bonus system that applies to each and every team member, the ability to grow within the company, access to education funds, and scholarship possibilities. “When we work, we take care of business and we grow together.” Zhang says. “When we’re not working, we’re enjoying time with our families and in our communities.”

The company is also enthusiastic to unveil a new concept later year. Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake—a playful grab-and-go with over 100 locations in China and Japan, featuring the beloved Japanese-inspired variation of cheesecake—will open its doors in Waikiki in August. “We will be hiring for our new concept,” says Zhang. “And for all of our locations, we look for people who are proactive and excited to learn. We can teach anyone who is motivated the skill set that will help them to be successful with us.”

“Panda Express, family-owned since 1983 by Andrew and Peggy Cherng, is America’s favorite Chinese Restaurant. While we are known for our Orange Chicken and our wide-variety of entrees, we are are especially proud of our investment in our people and are committed to the growth and the great variety of Chinese American  of each of our Associates.  Each year, Panda opens over 100 new units and is looking to add great talent to the team. With so much growth, the career opportunities are endless. Panda offers comprehensive paid training, competitive pay, benefits and much more.”
