    Pros

    Food is tasty, usually good business.

    Cons

    Management in some restaurants is terrible while good managers are always moved to new locations. If its not broke, dont try to fix it!

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

    Pros

    Was able to interact with various people each day, which I thoroughly enjoy, and serve them to the best of my ability.

    Cons

    Too much side work assigned by non-managerial personnel for the hourly wages given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have someone else do some of the side work or pay servers more to stay and do it after they've been cut from serving tables.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The co workers try their best to make it work so it was a team effort. Nice people.

    Cons

    Everyone washes a lot dishes although this is not part of the job description. In an 8 hour shift you do not get one break, no lunch or dinner. Concerns are met with attitudes. I never received my last pay check and apparently this is a habit of theirs, cheating employees. They pretend to care about their employees which they obviously do not. Some RT might be good, the one I worked at was bad. kind of like buying a used car, ask questions during the interview, make sure they know what YOU expect and it might work, once again, it depends on the franchise you choose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be there for the employees. Stand up for them. And then be ready to have a heavy hand come down on you for doing so.

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Food discounted. Work with people that I can relate with. Good place to learn some basics about cooking.

    Cons

    Years ago this was a decent job. Now, management wants more and more out of their hourly employees with no compensation. Cooks will have to work shifts with no dishwasher. Often leaving the line to go do dishes. Management has cut back on cook hours meaning there are often times when there is no prep cook in the building in the morning. Cooks must set up the kitchen, prep all the food, cook all the food, wash the dishes, clean the dining room in the morning(part of the new AM utility program), take out the trash ect. ect. Money is not enough. This is a company that thinks 12 dollars an hour is high end for a cook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in the shoes of an hourly employee just one day of your life. Just one day I want to see a manager come in and do the AM utility program. Set up the dish machine. Set up the line and do your line check along with any catering orders. Prep food while cooking and doing dishes. Take out the trash and do pull thaws. I bet managers couldnt do it for a week and they make 50k a year.

    I have been working at Ruby Tuesday

    Pros

    I enjoy the atmospher, my co-workers, my mangers and the coustomers, most of the time. The times are flexiable and easily accomidate to you You get paid everytime you work, simply because you make youre money through tips, which is very nice.

    Cons

    Altough i do love the people in charge and the co-workers and pay in tips, Hourly pay rate sucks, we only make 3.09 wich isnt anything espcially once all the tax and everything is removed. Also in the area not everyone likes to leave tips, even if you aare good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay minimum wage.
