DETROIT - Hooters had just given waitress Cassie Smith a glowing 2 year review.
But her bosses and two women on a conference call from the company's headquarters in Atlanta changed their tune when it came to her uniform evaluation
They were like, your shorts and your shirt size could use some improvement, said Smith.
Cassie, who is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 132 pounds claims she sat there while she was told if she wanted to keep her job she needed to drop some weight.
These women proceeded to tell me I had 30 days, they would give me a free gym membership, and if I didn't improve in 30 days I would be separated from the company, Smith said.
I was horrified, I was heartbroken, I was humiliated, she continued.
Cassie clearly doesn't have a problem squeezing into her skimpy uniform, an extra small tank top and shorts.
In fact she says when she started this job 2 years ago she weighed about 10 pounds more than she does now.
Questions to the restaurants general manager Rob Rice were deferred to Hooters corporate offices.
For Cassie the damage has already been done.
The 20 year-old feels like she's a victim of weight discrimination by a corporation with unrealistic expectations.
I don't want other girls to go through this. I don't want anyone to have to go through this.
Give her an alternative. You can keep the weight IF you get a boob job.
I’d hire it!
5’8” and 130 pounds is not too bad...maybe a bit plump
some Hooters gals here are much more plump than that
NOT THESE BOOBIES!
“58 and 130 pounds is not too bad...maybe a bit plump”
I bit plump is good. Real women have some curves. Skinny women just aren’t attractive to me.
Lady, you work for a company that makes money by indulging unrealistic expectations. Quit whining and do some sit ups.
I like “plump”.
Women should look like women, not the angular, curveless shape of a 14 year old boy, that the current arbiters of taste, the queers, have foisted upon us.
I see a nice Christmas bonus in her future.
Wow, they are going to fire her? There has to be more to this story, something along the lines of “office politics.”
Nice. She needs to get 2 15 lb dumbells and do side crunches. She would get rid of that quickly. Alternatively......
Yeah, she’s hot, this is dumb. OTOH, free gym membership!
Hell, I’ve seen fatter ones than that in Hooters! We’re talking muffin tops, almost resembling a DQ soft serve with two rolls, flat backsides, etc.
She’s fine, NOT guilty!
Can’t tell if she is overweight with those clothes on. New pics needed.
Hooters girls have plenty of curves at 110 lbs.
It’s the ratio of hip-to-waist is what makes a woman’s rear and sides look attractive -— specifically .7.
It also is an indication of peak fertility.
Are you effin kidding me....a bit plump?????
120 pounds was considered good for a 5'4" frame when I went for an airline interview in the late 70s....and I thought restrictions were lifted since that era
What did the cows look like that had to have a conference call instead of showing up in person?
You gotta be kidding me. They told THAT girl to lose weight???
Okay, telling that chick that she’s fat is just wrong!!!
BMI. It’s worthless measurement.
She’s paid to represent the brand, not to serve food, she is in essence a “model” and as such can be told things like lose weight or hit the road. The look of her body is why she was hired, not because she can speedily deliver chicken wings. I don’t think her claim is going anywhere.
130 lb Hooters; Waitress Told To Lose Weight Or Lose Job!
muffin top NO!
5’8 and 130 is not plump! Good heavens we are trying to make everyone into stick figures. My daughter is 5’7 and 130 and a size 3. She dances 30+ hours per week and not an ounce of fat anywhere. Us plump ones resent it when skinny people are called plump. I guess that makes me morbidly obese! NOT
I’m not big on plump women...not bone skinny but like girls were when I grew up in the 60s and 70s when a size 8 then would be a 4 today
women today are at at least 15 pounds heavier on average and that means bigger boobs which is nice
my wife is 5/1 and 106...that’s about normal to me
only tall gal I had was 5/9 and 128...she was about right
but God bless ya...have fun with them..everyone needs someone
Maybe what’s needed is simply a little weight redistribution.
Always here to help FRiend!
BMI is insane because it would require zero muscle tone and shape and ribs showing to achieve their stated results.
healthy gym rats laugh at BMI.
I watched Under Cover Boss when they featured the CEO of Hooters. Let's wait and see if he intervenes.
She has really small breasts, maybe that’s the real reason. She certainly is not fat.
5/4 and 120 pounds unless you have big boobs is not thin
i love how these threads bring out the indignant over women’s weight
this is one topic I miss old nopardons on...she knew this one up and down about how dress sizes had changed over the years
i had a girlfriend once...5/5 and skinny/leggy/high waisted...105 lbs
the defense of plump gals gets heated quick
don’t get upset according to this forum there are plenty of men who love curvy women
Real women have CURVES, not looking like a 2X4!
“My daughter is 57 and 130 and a size 3. She dances 30+ hours per week and not an ounce of fat anywhere.”
Yes, and your daughter has muscle. I’m almost 300lbs at 9% body fat (you can see my abs).
This lady is “skinny fat” -— as in bone and fat, no muscle.
She needs to hit the gym or dance. No muffin top.
Weight is meaningless, bodyfat percentage means a lot.
I see a little bit of a tummy, but other than that she doesn’t look fat.
You are unrealistic. 5’8” and 130 lbs is absolutely normal — ideal. The Hooter’s corporation is nuts. Plain nuts.
5’8 and 130 is NOT plump, not even close.
Yeah, I'm sure Hooters has been down this road a few times before and know exactly what they're allowed to do.
On a related note, I also have a job that requires me to maintain my weight within standards and pass a fitness test twice a year, a test that requires me to run 1.5 miles within a certain time and do a certain amount of situps and pushups. And these days my Navy is cracking down on fitness failures, showing them the door.
Yeah, she has curves, hanging over her hips.
Agreed, yet, I don’t consider that plump at all.
damn who knew?
That is rather funny when you think about the company she works for, and the atmosphere they create in their business!
I am a 5’7 male, 32 yrs old, and I weigh considerably north of 200 lbs.
The “charts” say I should weigh around 140, but I’d look like an anorexic at that weight...I weighed 175 in college and looked pretty good IMHO.
Yes, I need to lose weight, but I don’t need to lose the ~100 pounds that the charts (and my Wii Fit) says I should.
Where did Weight Watchers get that chart?
Their minimum weight number for my height is my maximum before I start looking fat-ish...
