    I worked at Hooters

    Pros

    Convenient scheduling
    Fun, laid back atmosphere
    Great money
    Tuition reimbursement
    This job is ideal for a college student. School comes first and with your work scheduled based on your availability.

    Cons

    Although it is a fun and laid back atmosphere, busy shifts will definitely test your strength as a server, and patience and understanding while dealing with rude or angry patrons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every once in a while you'll have a bad seed for a manager. You'll find that the professional ones that treat the girls with fairness and respect are always the best to work for.

    I have been working at Hooters part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Team spirit, fun environment, decent managers, really nice patrons, opportunity to make pretty good money, but all of these have now changed.

    Cons

    Petty management and their ridiculous rules that change as the wind blows. There is no consistency whatsoever, and they simply do not care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop ruining this restaurant!
