Hooters Waitresses Reveal What it Takes to Wear the Orange Shorts (Video)

It's not just about the wings.

No shorts are shorter and no tank tops tighter than those of the famed Hooters girls. They’re a tightly knit squad of pep and hair extensions, but no one is more fiercely proud of their day job.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the hot wings-centric breastaurant chain, Business Insider took a camera inside one of Hooter’s Manhattan locations to interview their employees about what it takes to be a Hooter’s girl.

The responses are surprisingly down to earth. The video features Christine Rosario, a waitress who discusses moving from New Jersey, stereotyping, and movement within the company. ”Just working, man,” she says with a smile. “That’s all it’s about. Hustling, right?”

Many of the girls in the video reveal that they aspire to higher management positions and hope to stay with the company for a long time. One girl hopes to follow the career arc of Kat Cole, a former Hooter’s waitress of 15 years who, at the age of 34, is currently president of Cinnabon, a $1 billion company.

So there you have it: while you were staring down their shirts, the Hooters girls were networking and quietly advancing their careers.

Watch the video to see what it takes to be a Hooter’s girl.
