An ex-Hooters waitress has opened up about what it’s truly like to work there and described the “weird” interview she faced.
Selena Silveira, a YouTuber and nursing student, shared a video documenting her experience working at the fast food chain “Hooters”.
The interview procedure, according to Silveria, lasted around “10 minutes” and began with regular interview questions, but there was one time that she quoted “strange.”
“Why do you want to work here, they questioned me? What do you believe you can bring to the position? How would you respond to a situation when a consumer was dissatisfied? She remembered. She added, “[Then] they pulled me outdoors and snapped a full-body picture of me.” Which at first I thought was a little strange.
But the former waitress explained why they did that. She continued,“But I later found out that it was so when they wanted to decide who they were going to hire they could remember what you look like,”
The chain doesn’t employ “waitresses,” according to Silveria, who is currently pursuing a nursing degree, but rather “Hooters girls.” She said, “It’s kind of like a model casting.” Therefore, it is up to them to decide the kind of workers they wish to hire.
A Hooters girl, according to Silveria, is “essentially a model” who has been hired “to perform a part.”
