    Pros

    50% meal discount, Good hours, Better than fast food, SOME friendly workers! Good job experience, start there and move up! Hot schedules! Awesome!! Flexible with your personal life!

    Cons

    A lot of work, Hostessing, Bussing Tables, Greeting Guest, Seating Guest all at once. The servers should try to clear the stuff off of their tables so you can wipe them down and reset them but most don't! They think since you're a hostess they can walk over you. We're important too.

    Advice to Management

    Good management ! it would be nice if the pay was a little higher as well, my friend is a hostess at a different restaurant and she said the minimum pay in Fl for a hostess is 5.05$ , and I get 4.99.... Hmm.. Oh well! I do though love how the managers are flexible with your life outside of work!

    Pros

    I like working long hours, so If you like being up and going, left and right and up and down. This is the place for you. Friendly enviorment, great people to work with. Food is amazing.

    Cons

    The hours ARE long. You get on average, depending on your availability, only one or two days off a week.

    Pros

    Quick money before the mall expanded; good people to work with; ability for advancement; offer benefits to part-time employees

    Cons

    Inconsistency with money and management. Not everyone took pride in their job.

    Advice to Management

    Hold everyone to the same standards. Accountability is key. Hard working employees get very frustrated when you let the slackers get away with everything.

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Ruby Tuesday are the coworkers. I have made life long friendships & wonderful networking opportunities.

    Cons

    The downside is the company isn't managed to its best potential. There are also few serious opportunities for advancement & many incidences of micromanaging.

    Advice to Management

    My best advice for the company in general is to stick to what you're good at & not try to be something you're not. Trust that you've hired competent employees who can do their job without having their hands held.

    Pros

    Ruby's has really made an effort over the past few years to trim the fat in their management positions, bringing in quality team members from outside of the restaurant.

    Cons

    Like most restaurants, quality of life may vary greatly depending on location. This is the result of both inside and extrinsic factors. Mainly, general manager and clientele base.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Many managers are able to balance hard work and keeping up a fun, thriving work place.

    Pros

    The people you work with are friendly. The food is good when it fresh right from the cook.

    Cons

    You never get over time. You work like a dog for nothing. They call you into work all the time. The GMS are harbla.
