Your best way is to use our online application form located at the Work for us section. We also make us of a Business WhatsApp, (060 369 7354) do not call the number as it is linked to a computer.

Do you have training that you can provide and how long is the training?
Yes, we do provide training for new applicants. Depending on your skills and basic knowledge it can take a few days to do the training. It is easy and straight forward learning and observing.
The standard Time frame for Training is 3 Days Training,
Day 1 - You will shadow a girl serving tables and observe.
Day 2 - You will receive a few tables on the floor 2 to 5, you will get to keep your tips made for the night.
Day 3 - You will receive more tables and the Manager on duty will judge your skills
I have no work experience, may I apply to work at Candys?
Yes, you may apply to work at Candy’s at any time. We don’t really fear if you have no experience in the hospitality industry. That’s why we can train you to do anything. The knowing how to waitress, serve or sell shooters is a bonus if you already have the skills.
I have never been to an interview. What if I am nervous?
There is always a first time for everything, so don’t get nervous and overthink the whole thing. Experience is everything so when you get invited for an interview at the club you will be given a quick tour and explained how things work. That way you can get a better idea of how Candys works and look. To be nervous before the interview is very normal, no need to stress.
How much money can I make working as waitress?
All the girls get paid a daily fee which is paid monthly.
(For example: If you waitress you get paid R150-R200 per shift and if you are training you don’t get paid the first 3 nights)
So let’s say R150 shift fee + R650 Tips + R200 body shots = R1000 x 15 Days = R15000
How much you make all depends on you and your attitude, how busy the club is and how good your service is. If you are going to be lazy and not make an effort to look after your tables don’t expect a big tip. Some nights you can make around R800.00 and other busy nights you can go home with over R2000.00 for one night.
Don’t think you going to be rich overnight it takes time and experience to be at a level where you make the big tips.
What is the dress code?
We have Candys branded outfits that you get at a small cost. It is your responsibility make sure it is clean and neat each day. Shoes you need to supply, like Black Nike or Tommy’s or any black shoes that you can stand and walk in. Your hair must be loose, straightened, long and neat.

Do the girls work completely naked?
No, we have themes and the girls work to display a fantasy to our guests. Like on a bikini Night the girls will wear a bikini for the night. The themes changes every night to be different to the next.
What if I need accomodation?
The club can provide accommodation on agreement with management and only if available. The club owns a few houses and flats that is located close to Walmer area. We prefer to give preference to dancers on available units.
