Things You Wanted to Know About Working at Hooters (But Were Afraid to Ask)

Did you hear the one about the naked waitress? No, seriously, there was a naked waitress serving customers at Roberta's this weekend (she apparently thought the birthday suit was a good outfit for her last-day). These sort of shenanigans may bring to mind the happenings at certain other restaurants (or breastaurants, if you will), but a piece published by Business Insider about the life of a Hooters waitress shows that it's not really like that at all.

The anonymous employee sets the record straight about what it's like to work at the chain. No, the company does not pay for breast implants, yes, customers ask the staff on dates but not more at a typical eatery and the pay really isn't that much better than at a normal establishment. The most common misconception: "People act like working at Hooters is a stepping stone to becoming a stripper. That isn't true at all. No one there is using their bodies to make money, they're just servers in a restaurant. Like anyone, they're working toward a better life."
