A waitress who works at Hooters has left people practically begging for jobs at the restaurant chain after she revealed how much tip money she made after a week at work.

TikToker Jona decided to share an insight to her life as a Hooters waitress after being inspired by others doing the same, but even if users had seen similar videos before, it's clear many hadn't ever seen quite as much tip money as this:

Jona, who is also a university student as well as a waitress, explained that she recorded her video on a week when she had shifts booked in for each of the seven days.

Things got off to a 'slow' start, if you could call it that, as Jona explained that she worked just five hours on the Monday as the restaurant wasn't particularly busy.

In spite of that, she walked away with $320 (£266) dollars after a shift of waitressing.

Jona had a bit of a change of pace the next day as she was bartending rather than waitressing at the restaurant, but that definitely didn't impact her earnings as she racked up $436 (£362) with the help of a 'good tipper'.

It was another 'slow' day on Wednesday, but Jona again secured more than $430 (£357), followed by $650 (£540) on Thursday.

Things dipped down again slightly on Friday as Jona earned $514 (£427), but Saturday's tips quickly made up for that as the employee secured $820 (£681), followed by $601 (£499) on the Sunday.

Though Jona admitted it was a 'long week', she said the work was 'worth it', and viewers agreed.

TikTok users flooded the comments section with their shock at the fact Jona had made a whopping $3,772 (£3,135) of tips in one week, with one responding: "Man I need this kind of money," while another wrote: "Literally making me wanna work at Hooters."

"I don't even make that in a month," a third wrote.

Jona noted that she's worked at the same restaurant for four years, which has allowed her to form relationships with regular customers who are then more likely to tip her well.

She also later said her tips came because she tries to be 'personable' with the customers, telling her followers about how she was 'cracking jokes', taking pictures and taking 'such good care' of them while they were at the restaurant.

"People will bless you if they get outstanding service," she said, though she admitted that 'not everyone' makes such good tips, and 'not every day is the same'.
