Hooters Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Hooters is the registered trademark used by two American restaurant chains: Hooters, Inc., based in Clearwater, Florida, and Hooters of America, Inc. based in Atlanta, Georgia and owned by two private investment firms, TriArtisan Capital Advisors and Nord Bay Capital. The Hooters name is a double entendre referring to both an American slang term for women's breasts popularized by comedian Steve Martin on the hit comedy series Saturday Night Live and the logo (a bird known for its "hooting" calls: the owl). Hooters also had an airline, Hooters Air, with a normal flight crew and flight attendants and scantily clad "Hooters Girls" on every flight.
Former Employee - Assistant Manager says"Long work hours, constant conflict management, and unable to understand not every market is the same. Lack of professional development, and career opportunities are very limited. I would not recommend this to any seasoned manager"
Server (Former Employee) says"Management was lacking and the employees suffered due to poor leadership. Girls were hired that did not meet company standards and service was lacking. It was difficult to make any money when the kitchen was consistently backed up and the managers all had different opinions on the Covid-19 protocols. The GM had no respect for the Covid-19 protocols and frequently broke county legislature and company policy. Cons: No breaks, incompetent boss, horrible staff"
Waitress (Former Employee) says"This was not a good job for me. The girls here are really snobby and rude to one another. They talk about each other and customers behind their backs. The management team is no better as they allow this and also do the same."
Host (Former Employee) says"The girls are mean, competitive and outright bully other girls. Management is run by men that have no idea what we deal with and belittle the girls foe doing their jobs. Horrible experience."

Kitchen Manager (Current Employee) says"Upper management doesn’t care about anything but numbers. It was like pulling teeth to get any repairs done to aging building and equipment. Will not pay hourly employees a fair wage that is comparable in the area. Cons: Under staffed poor upper management no communication"
Line Cook (Former Employee) says"do not work here unless you want to be over worked. and be stressed out all the you working. there is little to no support of growth in the place. unless you are a female."
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) says"The company is all about “setting up for success” but that never happens. The GM is awful and has no sense or logic. Can’t keep a kitchen staff they quit after a week or so because they see what really goes on here. Absolutely no work/life balance what so ever. Be prepared to only work nights unless the GM likes you. And don’t bother applying if you have kids you won’t get to spent the time you want with them. Overall horrible place to work."

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) says"Spent a total of 5 years with the company. It's a joke. Low pay, unfair treatment and harassment run rampant while the owners turn a blind eye. As an Assistant Manager I worked at 3 different locations, only had one raise for any of the hard work I did. And it amounted to an extra 3 dollars a day on my yearly salary. The owners will neglect their stores in all aspects, and pretty much let you fend for yourself when it came to store maintenance."
AGM (Former Employee) says"They laid off most of their managers and employees with NO NOTICE!!! Most of us traveled to work before being told on a conference call that we were all laid off immediately!!! Federal law requires 90 day notice of lay-off for companies that have more than 100 employees so now we go to court!!!!"
Server (Former Employee) says"Terrible location, terrible clientele, terrible management. You won’t make any money because the Orange Park location is never .

Daily Review says"Located in: Southport Address: 12710 Westport Pkwy, La Vista, NE 68138 01/09/2021 19:00 There were three dumb Chinese males who came by to try their luck with the nasty black girls. When the dirty Chinese is not looking to steal votes from the Dominion machines or to send them all the way from China or Canada to cheat the election. You will see those morons looking for ways to sell fake COVID-19 vaccines to dirty white boys who will always lie when it comes to hook up with a white girl. Those English dirt bags are the worse, they have no idea what they are talking about but they sure can smell one hundred dollars from miles away! Now that all the Democrats have won the Election thru the help of low life scum bag English males who got paid to sell out the Irish President Trump thru Ballot frauds from diseased residents. Chinese male thieves seen at this location tonight along side with the Democrat leftists are out in town to celebrate their victory over the ballot fraud! Those stupid losers are trying very hard to control much smarter Vietnamese U.S. citizens so they can steal all their winnings at the Casino by encouraging a white female Nebraskan bar tender to pretend that she cares. At least the super clean Vietnamese male does not have the coronavirus because he knows better not to get close to a black waitress. The pregnant bar tender white female is very messed up in her head due to being brain washed by her fascist white boyfriend who has a limited intelligence. Those liars white males customers don't like a manager like myself telling the truth to the public of how clever they are when it comes to fool other customers who are looking for a white Caucasian girlfriend who can even send text messages once in a while to show that she cares but rather to listen to controlling pathetic white male manager who will lie to the public in order to cash in big. Stop trying to be who you are not. People like people who are themselves and not some liar who wants to deceive the public by telling lies and sleeping with dirty black waitresses for sale because most of the hot white girls are reserved for the young white male thief extremist who thinks he is better than everyone else. Because of Joe Biden's Open Border Policy. The Cartel will be able to transport drug, sex trafficking, and weapons across the United States. Many American women who live near the Mexican border will be raped by the Hispanic males. The only way to change all that is to apply the 25th Amendment on Joe Biden's unfit to carry out intellectual duties as a President so Kama Harris can take over our country. A woman as a President will better understand the consequences imposed on rape and to prevent the murder rate increased before it happens once our border will initiate this open door policy."
Amber Heard Fan Club says"12/04/2020 Hooters Located in: Southport Address: 12710 Westport Pkwy, La Vista, NE 68138 A Representative of the Hilton Inn and the Hampton Inn visited this particular location a third time and has noticed new worthless black female waitresses. The owner decided to give a trouble maker black waitresses a shot at the spot light with far more cleaner and brighter white teens with higher education. The problem at this location is that a goofy unqualified Hispanic supervisor is put in charge to train the bar tender. This Hispanic assistant manager only holds a High School diploma and should not be given such title due to an illegal vision to use young innocent teens to gain profits from hooking up with potential white male customers with deep pocket. That's usually the case whenever you give Hispanic and black staff members the opportunity of a lifetime. Those hypocrites will take advantage of the white girls to either advance in their career or to engage in fraudulent quick hook ups. I am an investigator for the Hilton Inn who has visited several Hooters locations for the past 10 years as to preserve our brands and the integrity of our malls. We will continue to ensure full compliance from each small business so they won't try to intimidate our customers for higher tipping or to sell hook ups at our malls. I would be very cautious of the old white male manager loser who possesses no Degree due to his lack of integrity for the Hooters's brand. Italian old white males are well-known for playing with themselves in front of a young teen during the pandemic "that's crazy just like an old desperate stupid white truck driver". 12/05/2020 Before the Representative of the Hilton Inn departed back to the Hotel, he gave $200 tip to two white teens for Christmas because he hardly heard those teens complain about anyone but only from the crazy black waitresses losers Alias "Kamala Harris", ballots rip off who will sleep with the management in order to advance in their career, everyone knows about Mrs. Harris's tactic to lure prominent white males in bed."
