The Krusty Krab Employee Hat is the Krusty Krab uniform, which is worn by the Krusty Crew. This hat is mandatory for all workers at the Krusty Krab.
This hat is given to anyone who works in the Krusty Crew, most notably, SpongeBob SquarePants and Squidward Tentacles. The hat is fully white except for a blue anchor in the center, a black ring at the bottom, and a blue curved peak. In several episodes, the hat has a slightly different appearance, such as having a white brim instead of a blue one. The manager-employee hat has almost no difference with the regular employee hat, except it is slightly taller, and has the word "MANAGER" on it in black, instead of having the blue anchor on it.
In the credits of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, a similar hat is worn by SpongeBob after becoming the manager of the Krusty Krab 2. This hat is larger than the standard employee hat, and in place of the anchor is "Manager" in capital letters, going vertically. The video game of the movie's version of the hat is red with yellow letters, but it's otherwise identical to the one in the movie.
The Krusty Krab hat has a tendency to disappear and reappear on characters' heads over a few scene shots.
In the episode "Squid's Day Off," Squidward gives SpongeBob two Employee Hats since Squidward was giving SpongeBob the duty of operating the cash register and making Krabby Patties.
When employees wear this hat, it mysteriously stays on even if it doesn't fit. Forces such as wind and water are capable of pushing the hat off.
