    Pros

    I love hooters I owe them so much. They gave me a job when no one would because of my lack of experience. This job has taught me so much and I have met so many wonderful people. I moved up pretty quickly to lead corporate trainer and now I have an offer to be a manager. Because of hooters I learned how to deal with customers. How to stop being so shy and reserved and how to work hard. This is a great job to get you through college it's also a great job to have for life because they hire from within.

    Cons

    If you don't have good management then your experience may not be good. But luckily I have had great managers. I look forward to going to work.

    Advice to Management

    If you're a male manager you should have at least one female manager who understands females and their requirements.

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for. Everyone was so nice. I made very good tips and everyone was oh so friendly. Very nice place to work for.

    Cons

    There was a lot of hocus pocus and focus with your mom she gave me a very nice job. I was soo impressed by her silly smile it was so great like I can't even.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them to have a good day and to make sure that my stomach was extra full. Like i dont understand why you must have a good day off the blue.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the girls that work under you. Also pay more attention to the cooks that aggravate the girls on a daily basis.

    Great tips, fun atmosphere, and close coworkers.

    Cons

    Terrible management, clientel lacked quality, high turnover with servers and management. Did I say terrible management?

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to run a store properly. It is unprofessional to gossip with your employees, choose favorites, or wait last minute to send out schedules.
