Popeyes offers job back to employee who was robbed at gunpoint at work

Popeyes Offers Job Back To Employee Who Was Robbed At Gunpoint At Work

It's gonna take more than biscuits and Louisiana fried chicken to make nice with one former Popeyes employee. This week a manager at a Popeyes in Texas claimed she was fired after failing to pay back money that was stolen from the establishment at gunpoint.

Marissa Holcomb sat down with KHOU 11 and said that her manager told her to pay up or pack up. She refused to pay.

The following day a member from Popeye's parent company offered Holcomb her job back along with $2,000 in back pay.

But, the pregnant mother of three says she isn't sure if she's willing to go back. Last year an employee at Autozone was also fired following a robbery. But this time, the employee actually stopped the thief with his own personal weapon.

Devin McClean managed to thwart a serial bandit who was robbing local businesses by pulling a gun on the robber. Even though McClean said the manager was grateful, he was still fired days later. Autozone cited a zero tolerance weapons policy as the cause.
