    Very easy to get hired however it was a horrible training process. I was pretty much thrown on the floor and had to start before I knew the menu or how things really worked at the location.

    I applied online – interviewed at Ruby Tuesday.

    Interview Details

    Walked in and pretty much got the job based on previous experience. Not a lot of experience needed for the position, just common sense really and keeping in mind the tasks that you do have to do during the shift.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Ruby Tuesday.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call asking me to come in a couple days later (I applied on a weekend). I was interviewed by two people, the first asked me to answer some survey questions about how I have handled difficult situations in the past and such. The second interviewer was the general manager, who asked questions about my knowledge of the food service industry and why I wanted to work for the company. I was told I would receive some form of communication as to the status of my application, but have received word neither from a phone call nor from the company MyWorKFile for five days.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ruby Tuesday in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on a Thursday and got called in for an interview with the restaurant manager on Wednesday. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. He asked me basic interview questions for about 5 minutes then I asked a few questions. After he told me about the job he had the training server come over and talk to me so I could ask her questions and she could tell me what it's like working there. Everyone was very nice. He came back to finish up the interview and told me he had a few other interviews today, then he asked me if I wanted the job. So I said yes! Easy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ruby Tuesday in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a Wednesday, and was contacted via Email on Sunday. I arrived at the location and told the hostess why I was there. She was very nice, and directed me to sit at a nearby booth. After about 5 minutes, the manager came out. The interview was very relaxed.It lasted about 40 minutes, but most of this was just discussing things irrelevant to the interview. I was told that I would be contacted within a week to set up a second interview, and that if I did not, I should get back in contact with the manager. A few days after a week had passed, I emailed the manager. I received no response.

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Ruby Tuesday.

    Interview Details

    I walked into the restaurant and asked for an application. I filled it out on the spot and returned it to the the manager. Two days later, I received a phone call asking to set up an interview. I went in for my interview two days after I got the call. When I went in for my interview, I sat down with the GM in a corner booth and he basically asked me if I was flexible with my hours and when I would able to start. He asked maybe one or two generic "tell me about yourself" questions, but really nothing that I had to rack my brain about. When he asked me when I could start, I said I would be able to start immediately if I were to get the job and he replied, "Well, then I will see you tomorrow for orientation if that sounds good." It was a very easy interview and I almost didn't even realize that I got the job when it was over. It all just seemed so quick and casual.

    • Nothing difficult. You really have to be thick skinned to be a server. You will have guests that criticize you for all aspects of the restaurant. You can't take it personally.   Answer Question
