Can be chaotic

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
My experience working there was a 5/10 or maybe 3/10. Somedays its was good , not many people come and not very busy. But other days a while bunch of people come and it be chaotic and alot of online orders you also have to keep up. At the end your work area is a mess

Ya what a joke

Stop exit out of this application for this job and go somewhere..no work life balance always understaffed close and owners do not care about employees well being mental health or covid health. I would rather work in a Nike Sweat shop than Popeyea in Sioux City

Pros

Non

Cons

Well the whole establishment in general

Fun place to workFree lunchOvertime

I haven't worked at Popeye's long and when I started the job I told the hiring manager not to put me on the shift with teenagers and he did anyway. But since I've worked with the teenagers, they're not as bad as I thought they would be. We have fun while we work, and we help each other out. The managers are pretty cool too and there are no favorites, everyone is treated the same.

Pros

Free lunches Overtime Good pay

Cons

You only get to choose 1 out of 3 different break times. Either a 10, 15, or 30 minute break

Alot of favoritism and very uncomfortable work environment

Horrible work place. Very unfair rules are not the same for everybody and you don't get to pay that you are promised. Theyll tell you everything you want to hear to get you in the door and it's different once you start working

High school/college job

I can say if your a high school or college student and need a place of work pays decent but you’ll get and have experience within the work force something to place on your job history is better then nothing.

Pros

Location and chilled staff and management team

Cons

Unruly customers

Fast paced and stressful!

As a Popeyes employee, you are expected to be a jack-of-all-trades and basically do everything with minimum help along the way. Where I work, we get paid $12 per hour, 18 minute unpaid breaks, and half off food at those times. The customers can be so rude, they don’t understand how long it takes to prepare chicken. Once you get used to it, you can find some light at the end of the tunnel.

Pros

Half off food, flexible, free drinks on shift

Cons

Short breaks, fast paced, rude customers

Stressful

In the end with minimum wage, given the amount of stress and workload, pay is lower than living costs. Unprofessional is running this franchise.People from 10000bc working at the Louisiana HQ

Great place for you and you all need help with a lot and more stuff to help you get it out or do something else to help me with the stuff you want me lol I don’t know how to get

Cons

Less money
Was this review helpful?

Awesome people to work with definitely a new way dishing out chicken to the multitude.

I had really fun working with these friendly people. However I don't feel that they pay you adequately. You basically marinated all your chickens defrost chicken then cook chicken make tender patties and bone-in chicken then clean up after yourself.

Pros

50% off meals

Cons

$13 an hour

Çok kötü bir çalışma ortamı

Öncelikle yorgunluktan dolayı işin sürekli olmasının imkansız olduğunu belirtelim. Bir başka önemli husus eksik personel. İş yoğun... iş yoğunsa neden maaş verilip personel alınmıyor? personel sayısı normalin yarısı kadar bile değil. Mola 30 dakika o da mesai başladıktan 1-2 saat sonra zorla cıkarılıyorsunuz yoğunluk yok diye. başka molanız yok. yoğunluğa göre mola dileniyorsunuz 15 dakika onların insiyatifinde.

Pros

hiç yok

Cons

Eksik personelden dolayı iş yükü fazla yorucu, Kılık kıyafet genelde unlu yağlı terli oluyor, Sürekli ayaktasın ve harıl harıl çalışıyorsun, makina gürültüleri sürekli sipariş takibi stres koordinasyon eksikliği, her işi yapmak bulasık hamburger tavuk kızartmak temizlik sevkiyat, sürekli aynı yemekleri yemek ve dengesiz beslenmek, çay yok, oturmak yasak

Great place to work very rewarding

I just loved working at Popeys, it really opened my eyes to what blue collar work was. I am so glad to have gotten a good pay otherwise I wouldn't have made it!

It’s ok for someone looking for an entry level type job. It’s like any typical fast food restaurant.

Management was a joke. A lot of work was expected from certain employees while others didn’t have to do much. Favoritism was big there. It had its days of good and bad moments.

Pros

Employee discount

Cons

Working there

Underpaid and overrworked

My time working here was Okay. Work was hard but fun. I quit because I was horribly overworked and very underpaid. Popeyes needs to update their application process.

management never stays long

good place if you just need a job. This store stay very busy so the day go by fast. the custimers are rude and managers do not care. They only want to meet sales.

Pros

free food on the clock

Cons

unstable management
Was this review helpful?

Great environment but the pay is not enough.

Popeyes has a great culture but poor training and management does not understand business mindset. They are very flexible with school and family but the hours can be long and very busy. The upper management do not know much about the tough work we do inside the stores but they are willing to help out with whatever they can.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Low wage
Was this review helpful?

decent pay

it’s okay, working there is kind of stressful like any fast food restaurant. Overall the environment is friendly and you will be able to move up quickly

Food for free and they work with your schedule

It’s ok, it has a lot of things to improve. Poor management, poor security. If you don’t have nice coworkers it’s going to be a really stressful job.

Don't expect to have a life outside of work...

50hrs a week they tell you... Thats one of the biggest lies you will ever be told. Ive worked more open to close (16hrs) then I have the 5 10s I agreed too. The pay seems fair based on a 50hr week... But when its 100 its not so great! No chance of advancement. AD works herself to death too. I know every store is short handed right now but you cannot expect 1 person to keep it above water. Even if your the only one there... Hold on... The calvery is coming. But they never arrive.

Pros

Salaried managers do receive a free lunch, The job is not difficult

Cons

No home life, not enough pay for the hours.
