The Creeps
7. The Creeps

"Luckily there are fewer creeps than you'd expect, but I have perfected the passive aggressive comebacks and letdowns when necessary. There's no touching, no crude comments and if a girl feels uncomfortable the manager will ask the guest to leave."

8. " I get asked for my number several times a day."

"I get asked for my number several times a day. For the most part I'll ask for the guy's and then just throw it out. Sometimes you get cornered into giving out your number, but then you can just ignore the texts/calls until they get the hint.Usually you can tell the super creeps and know when not to give out your number."

The Regulars
9. The Regulars

The Managers
10. The Managers

"In my two years with the company I've had more female managers than male. But either way, all of my managers have been incredible. The girls are awesome because they're previous Hooters girls who know what we go through. The guys have always been super cool too, nothing like the creeps on 'Undercover Boss.' Theres a chain of command; we can bypass our manager and contact the regional manager if we ever have any kind of problem, like sexual harassment."

15. "The Best Thing To Do When A Girlfriend Comes In..."
