I work part time at hooters and my co workers are mostly female. When I came in I noticed everyone had their own cliques.when I dist startrd my job i was friendly but kept mt distance. Now all of the sudden,the girls are being rude to me for no reason. They all hang out and talk about their personal lives and I just stay quiet. Should I had tried harder to fit in in the beggining, so I could be more likeable??? Why are they treating me like this, when I treat everyone with respect??

Well from personal experience, they probably feel threatened cause they can't size you up just yet. Nice but distant is good. I do that and I wouldn't have had my job this long if I hadn't kept that up. It will feel good to not be apart of the he said, she said later. They will get over it eventually once they see you are consistent and not trying to partake in on the job politics. However if making friends at work is important to you then by all means befriend them but watch what you say.

As a rule Hooters girls are expected to be White & smoking hot, if you're a negroe female naturally you'll be cast off & shunned as you should be, nobody comes to Hooters to see colored gals, I mean really, we see enough of you welfare slags in public, we damn sure don't want to have to reckon with you where we eat too.

I hate clique to but the only thing is, when you are the newbie at a job, it is up to you to open up a little about yourself and also take any interest in others if you wish to work on a casual friendly basis with others.
