'You're hired': Popeyes applicant foils robbery during interview, gets job

- Well, this is one way to nail a job interview! A teenager was interviewing for a job at a Popeyes Famous Fried Chicken restaurant in New Orleans when a thief tried to snatch money from a cash register and make a quick getaway.

Manager Danyanna Metoyer and assistant manager Dominique Griffin were in the middle of interviewing 18-year-old Devin Washington Saturday afternoon.

That's when Pablo Ciscart, 50, asked the cashier to make change for a dollar, reached into the cash drawer, grabbed a handful of cash and attempted to run away.

Metoyer blocked the exit and Washington grabbed Ciscart in a "reverse bear hug."
