    Pros

    It was a fast paced environment that was very fun and positive. Everyone that walked into the door was warmly welcomed, and the upbeat attitudes everyone carried made it an awesome place to work.

    Cons

    The Hooters that I worked at specifically required a lot of hours because we were short staff. This was difficult to me because I am also a student.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible with the waitress! Most of us are working to pay for something.

    Pros

    Laid back environment
    Sweet co workers
    Amazing managers
    Management keeps you happy so you can keep guests happy.
    Play games or chalk in downtime
    Hometown celebrity feeling
    Able to win prizes such as ulta gift cards depending on your sales. Shift pick up and exchange was simple. Promotional trips.

    Cons

    Not everyone tips well because the assume your a hooters girl already making bank. Girls like to get an attitude when they come in with a boy. Nasty comments, when their slow(buisness) it's really slow.... Too many girls on floor at one time. Not enough inventory when needed

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the hootersgirls are telling you. Take action.

    Pros

    Money, meeting new people, making friends, it's a new experience

    Cons

    Some of the disrespectful & rude customers, sometimes management can change & not care about what you want.

    Advice to Management

    To be open to change & talk more to the girls. Don't get stuck in your own ways & want to work together to build a better team.

    Pay is not that great. It takes a while to get a raise. The waitress training is not that great it makes it harder in the kitchen staff.

    Pros

    Great tips, training prepares you for jobs the rest of your life. Corporate locations have the best training out of any company I have worked for and also formed me to be one of the highest performing employees at other jobs.

    Cons

    favoritism shown, even when those employees aren't the best employees.

    Pros

    Always had fun at work. Played games at the beginning of shifts to pick sections

    Cons

    Hooters isn't as popular as it once was, and other restaurants with similar themes stole a lot of business (Tilted Kilt).
