Stand Out Interview
At a Popeyes Famous Fried Chicken restaurant in east New Orleans, 18-year-old, Devin Washington, patiently sits answering questions with manager Danyanna Metoyer during an interview. Suddenly, and without warning, a customer standing in the line reached over the counter and grabbed the money from the cash register. The assistant manager tried to grab the robber’s arm to stop him, but still he managed to get away from him- that’s when Washington, still in the middle of his interview stepped in to help.
Devin told AP News, “I got up, and bent his arm back,” which effectively incapacitating the robber. They still didn’t know wether he had a gun or anything like that on him, “but I wasn’t scared,” Washington insisted. Both Washington, and the cook, were able to hold the robber down until the police finally showed up.
The manager, Metoyer said, “I had already made the decision to hire him, but didn’t have the chance to tell him when the theft occurred. She said after the whole ordeal took place she told him, “You’re Hired! You Earned it!”
