    I worked at Ruby Tuesday full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with great people. MOST managers were accommodating and helpful. I was able to meet a lot of new people that eventually became my "regulars".

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of support from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more involved. Make it a point to stop by the restaurant, not just when there are issues.

    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.

    Pros

    You can work whatever hours you like and it's not hard to serve food to people. All the people you work with are awesome.

    Cons

    You never get appreciated and are only as strong as your weakest link since everyone always sees the idiot and assumes everyone else is also an idiot.. you can never win

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate your employees better, especially the ones who hold everything together and know what they are doing

    Upper Management

    Current Employee - Salad Bar Attendant in Watertown, NY

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

    Pros

    Crew is fun to work with,50% off on meals whilst on shift,fast paced.

    Cons

    Upper management (RM) seems to have a vendetta against some of the crew,RM does the schedule and has cut back hrs and days from some employees,some only getting 1 day of work,feel like that is the RM way of trying to get those to quit so the RM wont look like the bad guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your personals feelings aside if there are employees that dont adhere to your way of thinking,punishing them by cutting their hours is wrong,we too have Bill's to pay,I have to get my drivers license renewed but cannot because the RM cut me down to one day!

    Pros

    Salad bar. Always an option to eat healthy at work.

    Cons

    Turn over is high (as in many restaurants), poor management, high level of sexism, and extreme use of belittlement by management towards workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that are capable and competent enough to manage areas of a restaurant and treat those they have authority over with respect. Give appreciation and credit where it is deserved without personal bias.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Updated POS's and software programs for daily operation were real easy to use. Overall a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Not enough managers per restaurant. Which stretched out hours per manager. A salary that seemed to get less by the hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the market value of your position and negotiate,
