    Pros

    So much opportunity to grow! I worked for this company for 7 years. I was able to travel and work and I received a lot of opportunity within the company and outside of it too.

    Cons

    Sometimes I management gets on a “high horse” but hat comes with any job. Also customers can make nasty comments but don’t sweat the small stuff

    Pros

    Good hourly pay at $10 an hour to start.

    Cons

    It can be very seniority based and favoritism is seen.

    Don't continuously keep hiring new girls, work on maintaining and training the ones you already have.

    I have been working at Hooters part-time

    Pros

    The girls become your family. There is a strong sense of sisterhood. It's a very laid back serving job. Tough at times for sure, but you get to sit down and have fun while on the clock.

    Cons

    Sometimes customers can be creepy, for lack of a better word

    Advice to Management

    Management varies from store to store. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Good money, great customers, often very cool coworkers

    Cons

    Ranking and scheduling system, sales expectations

    Advice to Management

    The ranking system and sales expectations work only in favor of the same girls that always work on the bar side.

    I have been working at Hooters (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Scheduling, Free Meal, Good Looking girls, For the most part. Freedom to run your location the way you like to.

    Cons

    This company can be great, if Corp would know and CARE for there GM's and understand that people are first not last. Most days it feels they don't care what you go through or what you need. Expect to run with only 3 managers (GM) part of that, You will run shifts alone and you still have all your work to do. All Male kitchen all female floor insane. Staffing is difficult at best to staff.

    Advice to Management

    Put you managers first, stop holding them to a dead system and update the stores with technology and invest back into the units instead of pitching every penny you can get.

    I have been working at Hooters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hooters has been (for the most part) a great experience for me as a student. The pay is great (at least $100-$150 a shift, if not more). You'll meet great friends; the staff is professional. If anyone is bothering you or being touchy or disrespectful, management handles it immediately.

    Cons

    Long hours, scheduling gets tricky - they'll ignore requests and then when you tell them you're out of town or something, it's your responsibility to get it covered. Girls can be catty.
    The biggest con of all is the obsession with the uniform. It has to be perfect for every shift. No colored nails (or even pink nails, they have to be natural or french manicure). No colors in your hair, no visible tattoos at all, no piercings, shoes have to be perfectly white. Also, you'll get runs in your pantyhose ALL THE TIME and you have to buy $5 pantyhose at least once or twice a week. If your makeup/hair isn't "glamorous," they'll let you know.
