I worked at Hooters part-time (Less than a year)
Hire on the spot, no former employment required, not too much work, nice managers, and work around school schedule. You get half off the kids menu and half off alcohol when you are not working.
No tips except if someone tips on a take out order, only five hours shifts, and you make minimum wage. They post the schedule on Sunday for the next week so unless you work Sunday you have to call and ask for your schedule. Some have set schedules, but it might be hard to make plans if you only know one day before if you are working the next day.
Advice to Management
Have hostess learn about the menus like waitresses do.
I applied online. I interviewed at Hooters.
After a phone screening, there was a casual sitdown with an easy to talk to interviewer. Asked good questions about operations and employee relations and offered honest insight on company workings.
