The East Village Panda Express is hiring

The opening of the Panda Express outpost at 237 First Ave. at First Avenue inches forward.

Recently, a help-wanted sign arrived on the storefront. Depending on the role, hourly wages run anywhere from $17.50 (service team) to $38.19 (general manager)... 
This pre-grand opening has been a lengthy process. We were the first outlet to report that Panda Express was coming to this corner in January 2022In April, a PE rep said that the projected opening date was around June 5. 

As noted late last summer, there were issues with permits — as in waiting for the city, Con Ed, etc., to approve them. (One tipster told us that management here was very late in completing the necessary paperwork for the various licenses, etc.)

Panda Express launched in California in 1983 ... with more than 2,000 locations today, including a handful around NYC.
