Hey guys, what’s up? Welcome back to my channel. Today’s video is going to be all about working at Twin Peaks. I currently work at Twin Peaks, so I thought I’d make this video because many of you have asked me on my Instagram about working there. I wanted to address a collection of questions and topics people have brought up, such as the hiring process, the work environment, the earnings, and more.

To begin, let’s talk about the hiring process at Twin Peaks. I joined Twin Peaks between March and April of the previous year. I’m not certain if the hiring process has changed since then, but when I applied, it was straightforward. I walked into Twin Peaks, asked for an application, filled it out, and was interviewed the same day. During the interview, they inquired about my availability and other standard questions. One thing I wasn’t aware of was that I’d have to change into the Twin Peaks uniform for photos, which would then be sent to the corporate office. About two to three days later, I was informed that I got the job.
Training consisted of four days, with the fifth day being a mock service where a manager would act as a customer in your section. During the initial four days, you learn the steps of service, which are guidelines on how to greet and serve customers. This is crucial because once you start working, there are secret shoppers who grade your service based on these steps.
At Twin Peaks, there’s a ranking system based on appearance factors like makeup, hair, nails, punctuality, and even the amount of jewelry you wear. For instance, you’re expected to wear at least two pieces of jewelry. I usually opt for two rings or a necklace and a ring. While gauges are allowed, I had to remove my septum piercing. The general appearance guideline is to look “date ready,” meaning you should look as if you’re going out on a date. For example, while my current foundation would pass, I’d need lipstick, eyeshadow, and my nails done to meet their standards.
Working at Twin Peaks doesn’t necessarily mean you need prominent physical features. Although you’re a server, you’re essentially a model for the brand, representing a certain image. The management at my location is understanding and approachable. If there’s an issue with your appearance, they address it discreetly.
One difference between Twin Peaks and Hooters is that Twin Peaks is more lenient about tattoos. I’ve never wanted to work at Hooters, mainly because I wouldn’t want to cover up my tattoos. Twin Peaks’ relaxed stance on this is something I appreciate.
The higher your rank, the better your work benefits. You get to choose your section first, which is essential for servers as some sections are more lucrative than others. Also, higher-ranked employees are less likely to close the restaurant.
The camaraderie among the girls at my Twin Peaks is strong. We’ve grown close, spending countless hours together, forming a sort of sisterhood. Currently, I work three days a week: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. These are typically good days, though summer can be a bit slow. However, business picks up when the school year begins.
We also have themed dress-up days, like Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and Christmas. Most are lingerie-themed, but they’re in line with the occasion. If you’re uncomfortable with the dress-up themes, you can opt out. But participating usually means better tips.
In conclusion, working at Twin Peaks has been a positive experience for me. The job is relatively easy, and the earnings are decent. If you’re considering applying, I’d say go for it. If it doesn’t work out, there are plenty of other opportunities out there.
