    Pros

    Decent money in tips, 50% off employee meals, easy going management.

    Cons

    Disorganized, dealing with harassment from patrons, female drama, high turnover rate, bad hourly pay and absolutely no room for growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful about who you hire, most importantly treat your employees with respect and not like a slave you can dispose of.

    Pros

    Fast money, fun work environment, laid back,

    Cons

    Low pay unless super busy. If its not super busy, you will make about 20$ for a 6 hour shift. Which I don't even think is legal.. But its whatever

    Advice to Management

    Hostess should make at least minimum wage.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. If you are tired of the stuff shirt environment, you won't have that problem here at HOA. Very supportive of breast cancer awareness. And very supportive of families. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Salaries for non management is well below industry standards. They are not competitive at all. Years of experience seems to not matter at all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay at minimum industry standards. This could avoid some of the turnover as the economy improves.

    Pros

    Overall cool job to have to get through school... -Fun environment -Made many friends -Met a lot of people in my community -Great pay, especially if you are a bartender -Easy to choose your hours because the schedule is made weekly -Easy to get shifts picked up if you have an emergency -Decent benefits

    Cons

    -Lots of favoritism, which seemed unfair to some girls -Medical benefits offered for some reason couldn't be used -Wish the staff could have been a little more mature

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should up the age of employment from 18 to 21. I started at 18 but not all 18 year olds are as mature as I was. Hooters tries to be a "family" restaurant, this could be more possible if the staff would act more mature on the floor. A lot of the younger girls are more careless, playful, reckless and sometimes vulgar. A little more maturity on the floor could work better and give the younger girls something to look up to. I believe a team lead of some sort could work because they simply do not listen to management and try to get around whatever rules they can.
