    I worked at Hooters part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I got to focus on interacting with customers and forget about school stresses.
    Meeting new people and and coworkers was always fun.
    Great environment, especially in the summertime.
    Management was extremely helpful and great to work with.
    They were extremely flexible with me as I had school and extracurriculars!

    Cons

    Often under or over staffed.
    Not a lot of room to move up.
    Some of the employees were very difficult to work with.
    Slow days resulted in less than minimum wage tips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was great! Maybe try a different staffing approach as it was hard to make money when we were overstaffed.

    I worked at Hooters full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with amazing women who ended up becoming close friends, but I have heard that our store was an exception. I most definitely came home with more tips than friends from other restaurants. Sometimes hundreds more. If you get over the stereotype of the uniform, work can be a lot of fun. If you want to get into bikini modeling or fitness competitions, the pageants are a good start. The national level campaigns are for long time employees and are politics from there on out. Once you've worked there for awhile or have some girls under you, you can almost make your own schedule, which you don't see a lot of in the service industry.

    Cons

    80% of management enjoys being able to tell "attractive" women what to do, eat, say, etc. They are by far the worst part of the job....minus middle aged, drunk men. There is a military-like standard for your image (down to your lip gloss color), but no surprise there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiding in the back and speaking to us like we're children. If you want a bunch of clearly confident and poised women to respect you, earn it. We may be your employees, but we are the reason your customers are here. If you're having trouble dealing with a customer, trying be their personal Hooter's Girl.

    Pros

    Hooters is very fast paced, fun, and sports-themed atmosphere. If you like interacting with lots of people this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Great job for a young up in coming manager. There are no real cons to discuss. The only real one is Upper-Management is always changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have lots of patience!

    I worked at Hooters

    Pros

    Easy money. You get your paycheck every work day. Makes you more outgoing. Great high school/student job.

    Cons

    There are no decent benefits. There are very little career opportunities. Lots of people have bad idea about Hooters girls, because of a wearable uniform.
