$50K for a company like Citi in a data analyst type role, or something like that, is worth a lot more than $50K from waiting tables at a typical restaurant.
I know they give waitresses a 1 month gym membership if they are out of shape

Re: Too FAT for Hooters?

I waited tables for a couple years while in school and once i worked my way up to good shifts and preferred sections I would make around 300 a week working around 15 hours. This was at a chain restaurant in Richmond that closed down. People working the same chain in the DC area were supposedly making at least 75k a year working full time.

But i didnt have to worry about health insurance at the time. But i also only reported like 30% of my credit card tips (which was the minium) and 0% of my cash tips (which wasnt much anyways). That said most people i know at other restrurants had to report different because of the way the tip out system worked.

Not in a cash/tips business like Hooters. They aren't going to claim over 60% (usually more) of their tips. That's 60% of their income tax-free. Basic single person health insurance is about $ 90-100 per month. The waitress nets out ahead.

Per year yeah, but when they're not so pretty anymore and ready to start a family, they'll wish they could even get a bank teller job.

Agreed. But they can make very good money while young to finance an education. Unfortunately many who start out in the bartender/waitress industry get used to the quick cash and don't plan ahead.

Indeed. I know a few Hooters girls that used it to pay their way through college. I know a few that got pregnant, became cheating housewives to servicemen, etc

1000% agree. She looks like she smokes two cigarettes at a time.

Re: Too FAT for Hooters?

It is the Detroit area what did you expect. I have a Hooters only a few miles from me in Taylor MI. It opened up I think about 10 years ago. Of course for the grand opening they brought in the hot southern babes, then after a week brought in the local girls. Most of the waitresses look similar to the girl in the pic, with very few actually above average in looks. Thing about Hooters is the food is fine, but too pricey for what you are getting. If the girls looked like the babes from Fla, GA, or the other deep southern states, then yeah I wouldn't mind higher prices to get some extra eye candy, but not for some average dumpy looking gal.

That is exactly who waitresses there in Downriver Detroit, college gals needing money or their not so lucky unwed mom coworkers. The girl in the pic looks like the average Hooters gal in the Taylor restaurant.

Re: Too FAT for Hooters?

My city has the same standards for police officers....you have to be fit and you get free gym membership along with you badge and glock. This chick needs to hit the gym if she wants to work at Hooters.

Too funny. I always get a good laugh when they show the old highlights of Bird/Magic/Dr. J/Barkley and the other commentators give them grief for the shorts.

I miss those pickup games, can't ball anymore, but had a decent game back in the day. My kid can't take the old man yet though. When he gets too close to beating me I'll retire, undefeated, from father/son hoops.

If she's so embarrassed, she wouldn't have went to the media.

John Stockton was the best, he wore "nutters" as Jim Rome always put it.
