    Pros

    Fast, flexible money and hours

    Cons

    Being clocked out while still working, long nights, overtime, and strawberry lemonades for days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better cooks that are more consistent as well as hostesses and other wait staff, no one likes to be the person always picking up other people's slack.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday

    Pros

    fast paced, tips were everything, managers were helpful in every aspect, typical benefits of 401k, management really helped in scheduling,

    Cons

    upward movement extremely limited, favoritism (but management was moved around if it was noticed), no gratuity on large parties, kitchen despised the front

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you're doing! maybe work on better unifying the back of the house with front

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday

    Pros

    The location was in a mall, so you had access to the mall on break or before or after work.

    Cons

    The management treated employees poorly. Employees were dissatisfied. They change your schedule constantly. It may have just been at this store.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for a small town... Fun environment when corporate management wasn't trying to get Assistant Managers to "tattle" on the GM.

    Cons

    50 hour contract, 60+ hours/week realistically
    Store management and Corporate management did not see eye to eye.

    Pros

    Decent work for a young 20 something. I enjoy getting to interact with different people everyday and getting to work closely with my coworkers who are like family.

    Cons

    Business has been bad for awhile now. The company seems to be in a slump. It's been really slow and hard to make money.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday part-time

    Pros

    I actually like the food and salad bar. There did appear to be career opportunities for people who wanted to stay.

    Cons

    The rules were stupid and counterproductive. It sucked that I couldn't ever eat or drink at the bar, for example, even on days when I didn't work and was wearing street clothes. I like to feel like I really have a stake in the place I work and it is a second home to me...Ruby Tuesday policies actively countered that sentiment.
