Working at Popeyes was a good experience to get faster at serving customers, and you always have to be in time with the food not getting cold and being fresh for customers.

a fast food restaurant
Often laid back but stressful and busy as well. Many of the employees are favoritized by management and work load is unfair. There is no respect for privacy or space for workers, you will not be given your worker's rights due by law.

way too much work for minimum wage
My location had everyone's training shift a day before we opened the store, meaning we had to become competent workers within a 4-hour shift a day before an extremely busy opening day. There were very nice co-workers in the first few weeks of working there but all the good employees quit for easier jobs with better pay. The main issue I have with the job is the management mentality of doing everything really quick, which don't get me wrong is perfectly good in a fast-paced environment to better serve customers, but when they ask you to do a 30-minute task in 10 minutes just so they can send you home early without having to pay you it gets old quick. The worst example of this was when they told me to do dishes and would periodically come to the back to tell me to go faster, expecting me to clean 15+ large metal trays and lids that are used to store raw chicken in 10 minutes, and ignoring my insistence on cleaning dishes thoroughly. The absolute worst thing about the job is they forced every employee to complete 10+ hours of online training with only an hour of it paid. So when I say that it is too much work for minimum wage, expect to work really quick to be sent home early, do tedious amounts of online training, and clean the bathrooms regularly, all for what should be an average fast-food job.

The most enjoyable part of the job is probably interacting with customers because I actually take pride in the quality of the food and it was nice making sure customers enjoyed their food, the managers left you alone in the lobby.


Small nitpicks:

-took two-weeks to put doorknobs

Although you learn different type of skills automatically by working in this field but this work is really hard as compared to other jobs.
My opinion about this job is that in the very beginning there are possible chances that you will find this job so stressful and you might prefer to quit job, but my friend this might appear hard for you in starting . Seriously it is not that difficult and you will know soon if you choose to stay long in this field.

High pressure and horrible environment
Super heavy load of work with less time. You need to rush to finish your job in time and in doing so you might leave the dishes in dirty condition. They have unrealistic expectation of your job. I always struggled to finish my job and no matter how hard I try, it never works.
Pros
50 percent discount for food
Cons
Everything

Okay job.
It was an okay job. Not the job I was looking to have but it was something that helped me out at the moment. Only thing I didn't like was I was told I was going to get more than 50 hours but that was a lie.

Fast Paced
Working at a fast food place on a University campus is as stressful as you can get. Long shifts and the lines are always long it feels like. You learn how to deal with pressure from costumers and even from managers.

Alright
I wasn't the biggest fan of working there. A bunch of teens was pretty much running the place and I was going through a rough patch in life when I started and ended.
