    I have been working at Hooters part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The managers are extremely flexible with scheduling hours. Throughout my undergraduate to current doctoral educational career, they have allowed me to work the weekends I can/want too. The income when I do work is decent. Several skills are attained that translate to the "real world" such as, marketing, dealing with the difficult customer, sales, fundraising experience, etc.

    Cons

    The outfit is not the most flattering, needs a major update.

    I worked at Hooters part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They will hire you if your cute even if you have no past serving experience. And they will train you.
    The girls are a lot of fun and you can meet really cool people there.

    Cons

    Once they do all that, they will probably fire you because they have secret shoppers and if you don't do you 16 step you will get fired. A lot of girls do their steps but the shoppers don't understand the survey so they still get fired...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing Managers so often. Rather than focusing on what girls are doing wrong, focus of what you can do to make the company better.
    - Make sure your Tap machines are working properly
    -Make sure paper Towel dispenser works properly.
    -Don't over sit your servers if you want them to get all the 16 steps right.
    - If a girl gets double sat or triple or quadruple sat (it happens) if one of them are shoppers the shop should not count. It's dam near impossible to do a perfect shop in that situation.
    -(The previous two comments are only a problem because you keep firing GOOD working girls and don't have enough working. STOP doing that.)
    - Sitting at the table should not be one of the 16 steps. Some people are really creepy, and we don't wear a lot of cloths....
    - Selling Merch really takes away from time we should be spending with our tables. Someone else needs to be in charge of dealing with that. Birthdays, discounts, and photos, needy table are also part of this problem.
    -if those are things you want us to do while have 8 or more tables (with parties of 8+) you really have to adjust your times on the 16 steps.
    -Also hiring managers and assistant managers who know nothing about the company is so wrong. They only slow down the process and cause errors. Girls would be happier and customers would be too if girls who knew the system progressed upwards to managers.

    Pros

    Every store is different, but I made very good friends with a lot of the girls at my store.

    Cons

    At the location I work at the managers never really show appreciation towards employees. And especially not towards the ones who deserve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like a vacation. I have not had a vacation since the day I started working for this company and I have boyfriend and family who I would love to spend some time with outside of my days off that I am in school.
