    Pros

    You make above minimum wage

    Cons

    Managers would gossip about employees, call them inappropriate names
    They don't like to train, so you will be stuck at the position your hired as
    Pay wasn't worth the way you're treated

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Since the employee turnover is high, it's pretty easy to get a job here with no experience. Meaning stay here a few months and you can easily advance to other positions or you can use that experience to get another, all around better job in a different restaurant. They're also pretty flexible with the schedules.

    Cons

    If you're a good worker, management and other employees try to take advantage of that by either scheduling more hours than you can handle or just not doing their job, leaving management asking (scratch that, forcing) you to do it, even though that other person is on the clock and not doing anything and getting paid more.

    Managers seem to care more about catering to abusive customers than treating their employees well. We don't even get to eat for free, only 50% off the crappy food they serve. And also b/c the food and service sucks, we're always REALLY slow, which means servers aren't making money and neither are hosts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the customer is always right rule and focus more on treating your employees well. Also stop hiring nasty people, who keep the restaurant in a nasty condition. Nobody wants to eat in a restaurant with dirty plates, sticky floors, and busted seats.

    Pros

    Have some great people that work for them.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless. Fly by the seat of your pants. Directors and Regionals need to be replaced. They don't understand how the daily ops of a restaurant work but point fingers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new leadership. All levels of management. GSM, CM;s lot of bad GMS too. But mainly directors and Regionals. Corp. has constant stick up there ass and thinks they are all mighty and never make mistakes. Its sickening the lack of focus, results, and especially accountability.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of locations in Alabama.

    Cons

    No appreciation for hardwork or their staff members. Constantly down sizing and demoting people. No clear guidelines that are constantly changing. No true identity on what they want the concept to be. Most cooking is done in microwaves other than grilling and frying. Nothing is really made to order fresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't work for Ruby Tuesday. In the year and a half I was there they went through 4 regional directors and 5 district managers in my area. my district manager was demoted and made our gm. higher positions hold grudges and managers were forced to choose between keeping their job or firing the people the gm wanted gone even if they did not agree.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay for management at the entry level was relatively high.

    Cons

    They constantly changed the menu and standards. Their systems were impossible to execute with the amount of labor dollars they allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go work in the restaurants your managers run on bare bones staff. See if you can do it.

    Pros

    If the staff is nice it can be bearable. Most of the time the company is willing to help with school schedules

    Cons

    Revolving door for management. Poor Morale. Poor Pay. Dirty Work Environment. Some stores have severe pest control issues. Management also seems to have trouble telling the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to take care of your employee's. Practice what you preach.
