What a Hoot!

July 24, 2007

I’m sure many of you are familiar with the Smoking Gun, the site that brings you exclusive access to what would otherwise be confidential information, documents, and pictures. Well for those of you who are not familiar, I always get a kick out of their publication of the Hooters Employee Handbook. I have taken the liberty of quoting some of my favorite excerpts below.

The essence of the Hooters Concept is entertainment through female sex appeal, of which the LOOK is a key part.” (pg. 4 of the Hooter’s Employee Handbook)

Our LOOK is wholesome, yet sexy, and the uniform is athletic by design.” (pg. 5 of the Hooter’s Employee Handbook)

The Hooters Girl uniform shirt is a choice of a tank top tucked in to the Hooters Girl shorts….All shirts must be sized to fit, NO BAGGINESS.” (pg. 5 of the Hooter’s Employee Handbook)

The Hooters concept is based on female sex appeal and the work environment is one in which joking an innuendo based on female sex appeal is commonplace.” (pg. 45 of the Hooter’s Employee Handbook)

I also expressly acknowledge and affirm I do not find my job duties, uniform requirements, or work environment to be offensive, intimidating, hostile or unwelcome.” (pg. 45 of the Hooter’s Employee Handbook)
