Hooters has been an all time go to restaurant for college guys and young adults for many years now. The name alone with the owl logo is a fantastic indicator to what the chain is all about.
We live in different times though and this isn’t the early 2000’s or 1990’s for that matter, so it is interesting to see what and if the handbook has been updated since its release. The Smoking Gun website released what it claims to be the Hooters Handbook for employees that are Hooters Girls.
If you want to see the highlights of the handbook you can visit The Smoking Gun website article So You Wanna Be A Hooters Girl? and see what they have published. We have just taken some of the ones that we found to be the most interesting, for whatever reason.
There have also been numerous videos made by former Hooters Girls. One Hooters Girl in particular that made a YouTube Video goes by the handle Ashlynn Racquel. She posted a video named Hooters Handbook:The Untold Truth of Hooters.
In this video she describes the rules and reads it straight from the rule book. Her video was posted in 2018 and can be viewed below.
