A Hooters girl has shared how much she makes in a week - and now loads of people wanna quit their jobs.
In a viral TikTok video, Jona Mustafaraj thumbed through her takings, which left a lot of viewers stunned. Watch here:
There is a lot of fascination online about the controversial chain, what it's like to work there and how much you can make, with employees often going viral on TikTok when sharing their insights - and income.
Jona decided to get involved, flicking through the wads of cash she earned in a week.
Captioning a video that has been viewed more than 700,000 times, the 22-year-old wrote: "Best job to have while in college ever no one can tell me otherwise."
Thumbing through her dollars, Jona said she started the week with $320 on a 'slow Monday', following that up with $436 working behind the bar on a 'very, very slow Tuesday'.
She pretty much matched this with another $431 while waitressing on Wednesday, before really topping up her income in the second half of the week.
Jona said she made $650 during on her Thursday shift, $514 on Friday, and $820 as a Saturday night bartender.
She then polished off a week of work with $601 on the Sunday, and in her caption, she said that came to a grand total of $3,772 in one week.
Naturally, the video had people reassessing their careers.
Commenting on the clip, one person wrote: "Literally making me wanna work at hooters."
Another said: "Meanwhile I make $55 from my 5 hour shift at a grocery store working produce."
A third added: "I'd work there but I don't have any hooters."
But before you go handing in your notice, Jona wanted to make it clear that these kind of tips are by no means guaranteed.
"Also disclaimer," she commented. "I've worked at the same location for almost 4 years so a lot of the money is from having regulars!!"
She added that she works hard for that cash.
"To all the girls saying, 'I'm going to drop out of school, or I'm leaving my job and I'm working at Hooters. It's my dream job,' no!" she urged. "Don't do any of that.
"Not everyone makes this [amount] of money and not every day is the same."
She continued: "Not to blow my own horn, I'm a very charismatic person. I walk around this bar singing and dancing the whole time - not every girl is doing that and they're not making that kind of money."
