    I worked at Ruby Tuesday full-time (more than 8 years)


    They believe in teamwork. Give you values that you can live by in your everyday life. It's a family there( in my case real family as well I have two blood relatives that work there all separate stores now), I spent eight years there and though the employees managers and districts grew as a person. Not many companies can offer that this one did. I worked at three locations in the Cleveland area and its consistent. There are guests that you value not just because they tip well but because you become a part of their family as well. They take a bit to pay well, but if you are willing to put in the work it's noticed by your entire team. If you want to learn they will teach you. I was a server, bartender, cook, assistant culinary coordinator before they took that job away, a GSM guest service coordinator or shift manager if you will, dishwasher, salad bar attendant, and a host. I could do inventory, reconcile numbers, count bar, do interviews. If you have drive they will teach you.


    Every place in the food industry has its share of woes. There are times your short staffed, times your tables are driving you crazy with coupons, times you let it just get to you. They do change the menu, and make adjustments. I've never seen it effect the core values. They do what I like to call the manager shuffle every so often, and sometimes you lose a manager who was amazing, sometimes your happy to show one where the door lies. In all the years I was there the faces around me changed here and there but managers came and went. They keep a core crew plus some for long periods of time and many former employees come back. They promoted from within back when I started, but changed it a few years ago and hired outside the company for salary managers. Districts come and go to other states so constantly your being asked to re prove why your a valuable candidate. That was hard and frustrating. But for all the bad the good out weighed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm truly sorry that I had to leave to find a salary job. I always wanted to move up there with people I loved and respected. Before my daughter I was working on moving up, I spent a long time learning your ways of doing things. Hourly managers want to move up too, after two years I had to find a way to better support my family. You have lost three people that were an asset in any store they were in. One went to Darden, one to houly house, and one to covelli. But all three would have done a far better job than some outside hires I've had the privilege of working with. Every one of those three put in effort to become a gsc, worked well at it, went to every weds meeting on their time to become a better asset to the company and after so long and you don't go anywhere more what are they supposed to do? Honestly it was agonizing to leave, I truly loved the company, but I love my daughter as well and as a parent want to better provide for her. But thank you, it is truly a remarkable company founded on good values. Please listen when your employees talk because to you about their fears and concerns. Don't lose people that would only enhance your development. Thank you for everything you've done for me over the years, not even close to the person who walked in eight years ago and most of that change was through this company. I will truly miss it
