The company’s mission and values truly resonated with me. I believe in living a healthy lifestyle by exercising and learning continuously by working towards my Associate’s Degree. Also, I was looking for growth within a company and Panda certainly offered that.
A day in the life of a General Manager
A typical day consists of spot coaching, inspiring others and learning. I do a bit of everything including serving guests, cooking, ordering and inventory. I especially love to cook.
What made you decide to stay and continue to grow at Panda?
This is more than a job for me; it is a career. I love saying, “We are in the people business disguised as selling orange chicken.” I know that as I grow with Panda, I will be able to add even more value to those that surround me at work and home.
How has Panda impacted your life?
Panda helped me see the possibility that I can do more every day. There is always a way to better myself, both inside the four walls of my restaurant and at home in my personal life.
What advice do you have for someone interested in Panda?
Just go for it! Panda is a great company that values their people. I left my previous company that I was with for four years not knowing what was in store for me at Panda. Now, I wouldn’t change my decision at all.
