    It has been a roller coaster ride of good and bad, mostly good

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday

    Pros

    Large section, minimal side work, decent money, and there are a lot of good people that work there and are willing to show people new things

    Cons

    Management is garbage and is always changing and does not allow smoking at the present time. They will also write up people for doing essentially nothing wrong

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to your servers needs and don't change up so much.

  7.  

    Great people and management. It was a very fun place to work. The hours are a bit crazy but overall that is to be expect

    Pros

    Manager was very informative and worked with you to get the job done. The atmosphere was always positive and the customers were treated well.

    Cons

    The decor is still very old looking. The business should change their target market to a younger customer base. The bar needs to accommodate more for sports. The tvs are set up very poorly

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

    Pros

    The people I work with are amazing and the management are always there to help us out whether it's a problem with the computer system or getting the food looking just right. There's always a positive atmosphere when I arrive at work.

    Cons

    It's too soon to tell the cons of this company, but RT, in my opinion, needs to have a better way of handling communication from the FOH to the rest of the staff. As a server assistant on some busy nights with a wait of 45 minutes it's hard to determine what tables are clean or dirty because the computer system isn't always correct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that having a better form of communication from the FOH to the back would really help. The computers are a bit outdating and the seating system doesn't always match up in real time. Maybe have headsets or some sort of communication devices like that would help us out.

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Ruby Tuesdays has been a blessing. I enjoy dealing with the guest and providing exceptionally memorable service. I am involved in scheduling, purchasing, inventory management, loss prevention, cash management and deposits.

    Cons

    Home / Worklife leaves more to be desired, but hey this is retail management. If you can't handle that, go work from home. Seriously, it takes balance and understanding to work retail hours in a busy store. Forecasting is just that, forecasting. Days run long from time to time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the little people, and they will take care of you.

    Pros

    Great Leadership Opportunists. 80% internal promotions. Connect 2 Convert and the Ruby Way are the driving forces in the restaurant.

    Cons

    Hard work & Long Hours. Have to have a high tolerance for stressful situations. With todays younger generation of people its harder and harder to find great team members that will stick around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard and keep your head up and stay noticed. If you want advancment.
