Productive Work environment with great customer service
Trainer (Former Employee), Montgomery, ALSeptember 19, 2014
A Typical day at work is always exciting because i always learn new things. I learn great communication skills among people. Also to get better at the work i do to further myself with my skills. My co-workers are very friendly and open to conversation whenever we not on the clock. That makes the work environment more easy to flow at a better pace when – more... you around great people. The hardest part of my job was to get through the day when i was tired. Most importantly i stay motivated. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to interact with my customers and make money. – less

very busy and over whelming
line cook (Former Employee), south st. louisSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: long breaks
Cons: sexist
A typical work day is over whelming for men, I also learned how to become a line cook and properly wash dishes. My co-workers were nice and hard working most were women. The hardest part was multi tasking and I didn't enjoy no part of being there.

Diverse company that demands friendly service
Cashier (Former Employee), Norcross, GASeptember 11, 2014
Pros: free/discounted lunches, meeting diverse people daily
Cons: this job requires you to be up on your feet all day, undergoing temperatures that fluctuate between really hot and really cold
Typically as a cashier at Popeye's, you may take orders at the drive-thru or at a cash register. Your main job is to deliver fast, correct service and assistance to every customer who comes your way. The job is fairly easy and you are always acknowledged or rewarded for your hard, consistent work. Working for them I learned how to operate a cash register – more... system. The management for popeye's in New York seemed discriminatory but the management for popeye's in Georgia seemed just fine. In New York, I was often criticized for not being able to pick up the slack for my co-workers even if my work was not completed. I never saw my supervisors criticized anyone else for not helping me though. My co-workers were not nice to me, someone stole $50 from me and when I brought it up to my manager nothing was done about it or said. The hardest part of the job was continuing to work with co-workers who I could not trust. I felt like they deliberately antagonized me and made me look bad. In Georgia, my co-workers were friendly, helpful and conversational. The one or two co-workers who were rude to me did not seem to bother me that much. The three managers I encountered were always understanding and polite. Overall, what I enjoyed most about being apart of the Popeye's team is that it really felt like a team. Whether I liked all aspects of it or not. – less

Fast paced workflow environment
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Mountain Home, ARSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: flexible hours.
Cons: healthcare, management, stressful.
A typical day consist of keeping my employees focused and ready for rushes, keeping things prepped and organized. I've learned that each employee has different learning abilities and to be patient and kind. Also I have learned how to work with my employees at their level to relieve stress (not using power as a crutch). I'd say the hardest part about – more... the job is keeping things prepped during rush periods as we sometimes run out of certain foods on some days more than others. What I mean by that is food that we normally don't sell as much we sometimes sell more on other days which we base off sales. The most enjoyable part of my job is providing good customer service in a timely manner and also connecting with my employees and understanding their limitations. – less

Best learning experience
Manager (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXSeptember 5, 2014
This may have been the best educational learning experience I have had. The management placed their trust in an early stage of my career and because they did, we were able to increase sales annually throughout the year.This was only possible because they trusted my ideas and allowed me to project it into sales.

Management was a great team, this is – more... where i learned that attention to detail and trends were the key factors in dominating the sale industry.

The most enjoyable part of this job was the fact they believed in me and let me run the job I saw fit to increase the value of the company. – less

Needs new management "team"
Manager (Current Employee), Gresham, ORSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: free lunch for managment
Cons: the list is so long that there is not enough room on this line!!
This is a business that even for fast food needs lots of work. There are many kids that just don't care about their jobs and the management team or lack there of is awful. There is no team, its a few people that are against each other and devious. There is lots of pot smokers and lazy people and the upper management doesn't care because they are all – more... friends which makes it really hard for anyone trying to join this atmosphere. – less
