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

    Pros

    You get money on the daily. Dress up days are cool as well. Its fun taking pictures with customers almost every day.

    Cons

    There are alot of issues. For one, they dont even pay their host a min wage. They get a tip out from the servers percentage of SALES. Some hosts walk out with $30 make $2 an hour just like servers. How much sense does that make? Tip out is 2% of your total sales. Some
    customers dont tip according to the 15% thing that they are suppose to do. So you could be tipping out $16 and walk home with only $60. There is no gratuity anymore. So big parties can come and be difficult and only leave you $10 on a $300 tab. Also at the end of the night, you HAVE to declare 14% of your sales as your tips. Even if u dont make that much. Since thats the case, you wont even get paid the difference if you didnt even make min wage. The hours are long and you get no break. They will schedule you for doubles and wont provide you with a free meal or break. You may get cut early. Its just bad business period. The worst job i have EVER had.
