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

    Pros

    Very friendly environment with caring employers and employees. We sang Christmas Carols in a conga line at Christmas.
    Had Easter egg hunts for the kids at Easter. We had skilled contests and sales contests. Management was usually cooperative with those needing time off.

    Cons

    Some times the management would get a little stressed out...the GM liked to work EVERY day which stressed him out. We did have a sit down with him and his boss and discussed how he was stretching himself too thin. In the end he got a little more laid back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the job own you.
    You own your job.

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked with a great group of people and managers. That makes all the difference. I made some good friends and actually liked going to work.

    Cons

    Too many servers scheduled for the business we did. Apparently, a corporate rule. Servers can't make money if they are only getting one table every 30 to 45 minutes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep bartenders behind the bar!

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Laid back/relaxed
    Fair pay on busier days
    Fairly quick closing duties
    50% off and a good menu

    Cons

    Very slow a lot of the time

    Going downhill business-wise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rely less on coupons and more on advertisement and brand recognition. The coupons cut into the bottom line for both the restaurant and those paid via tips.

    Pros

    Networking,
    coworkers were nice and easy to get along in and out of work
    was a good first job, made decent money and stayed there for a while before moving on

    Cons

    you have your ups and downs just like with any job, but all in all not any issues when I worked there. I learned to let things go and think to myself if it would bother me the next day then it was an issue. very rarely did that happen
