    I have been working at Hooters full-time

    Pros

    Hard workers, great atmosphere, managers work with you to give you the hours and shifts you need prior to being their for a few years.

    Cons

    Your always going to have those managers that you don't like. How the place is ran. Managers saying it's ok to pick wings off the walkin floor and clean them off. Managers all talking about each other to other employees

    Advice to Management

    Keep your outside business out of work leave all the drama at the door before walking in bad vibes attract more people to have bad vibes. Don't sell hope and dreams that's all

    Everyone is friendly and very helpful. Customers are super nice and layed back
    It's a great environment

    Expected to learn menu, tables, specials, etc.
    there's only two shifts per day
    You don't know when you'll be cut
    Side work takes long to get out of there

    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

    REGULARS. You can earn awesome money if you come to work looking your very best and being nice. They let you make your own schedule so I never ever had to work Friday or Saturday nights and still had money :)

    Cons

    some girls were very hard to work with, get jealous of you, some people do harass you and can be so annoying

    Advice to Management

    Please be up to standards when hiring!

    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

    Surprisingly professional atmosphere. Rules and protocols are very strict. Fun environment.

    Cons

    Requiring the use of mascara and other make-up, hair always down, no leeway for creativeness.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, opportunity to be creative, you meet and work with wonderful people.

    Cons

    50+ hours a week, corporate is constantly breathing down your neck, lack of communication between management, no consistency.

    Advice to Management

    We desperately need to bring back aspects of Texas Wings, the girls and guests really miss the games and specials we had during that time. Also, secret shoppers do nothing besides add unneeded stress to perfectly wonderful servers.
