Alright so here is my orientation story!!
I showed up looking cute again, but not as dressed up as the interview just enough to show that I know how to dress myself but not enough that I wasn’t going to be comfy for all the signing. My orientation was at 2 pm so I made sure to show up about ten minutes early. I had one other girl applying with me so we had to wait on her-but hey I was early so I didn’t mind! She was this cute little barely 5 foot something 16 year old and seriously she was adorable. Me being 5’9 I felt like a giant next to her but im used to it so I didn’t mind so much, most of the girls there are pretty dang short so I can just be the cute tall one! :) A different manager this time came over to talk to us about what we would be doing, and this one was pretty cool too so I was glad we wont have any mean managers so far to deal with.
We had to sign a butt load of papers that seriously took FOREVER. No joke, by the end my handwriting was awful. Me and the other girl joked that by the end it looked like someone forged our signatures because they looked nothing like they did at the beginning. After we signed a million and ten papers he came over and talked through the employee manual with us. And I know some of the manual was leaked and posted online and everyone flipped out about it but really it isn’t bad at all. It just talks about how we have to look good for our shifts and take care of ourselves and blah blah blah. There was a long part of bullying and sexual harassment that seem pretty legit. Hooters doesn’t mess around with sexual harassment which is very good. Everyone loves to joke about how the girls dress like skank-mobiles there but really I wore less to the interview, and wear less every day than the girls wear every day. So I wasn’t too concerned about his at all.
After we went over the whole manual and everything we watched a short movie basically all about Hooters history and answered some questions, which were super simple anyways so it should be fine. Then we got a tour of the place and finally UNIFORMS!!! :) The other girl is going to be a hostess so she will wear a polo top and khaki shorts so she only got the top and then I got mine! I was a little bit skeptical when he handed me my xsmall shorts and xsmall top. Don’t get me wrong I am not a really big girl but I am 5’9 and 140 pounds with a 34DD chest and am usually a 4-6 in jeans. So I kinda stared at him a second before I figured hey whatever lets try it! And what do you know! It fits! And I was looking sexy. It’s the truth what can I say! Here is what all I got: Xsmall shorts in orange, xsmall white top, tights (size E because I needed the long ones), and a pair of socks. I will get the black ones in a few days.
Then we went out and planned our training schedule! The other girl needs 3 days of training to be a hostess and I will need 5 to be a Hooters Girl. I was pretty surprised how quick it is all going, the orientation was on a Monday and by the Sunday of this week I will have had all five days of my training in. It was pretty dang exciting! I will post about my first day of training next!!
