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

    Pros

    -There is a more flexible schedule with so many servers on staff
    -It's easily accessible from most major Subway stops, without having to walk through too much Times Square foot traffic
    -The managers make cuts in waves so it makes it easier to be social with coworkers who are getting cut at the same time.

    Cons

    -It's Times Square
    -Much of the clientele are aware that the company gives away free food/comps bills all the time if they just complain, and then don't tip on the free food they were just served
    -Tiny sections for servers, so it can be impossible to make enough money
    -Constant overstaffing during the slow season makes everyone bored and grumpy
    -Overtime comes out of the mangers' bonuses, so they will not approve picking up shifts that potentially run you into overtime (even though you might be the only one willing/able to help out another server.. also the servers aren't even making minimum wage, so it shouldn't matter)
    -Micromanaging happens all the time
    -Managers often hide in the office, but are required to approve many corrections to the bill, so handling issues takes significantly longer than it should, upsetting customers even more

    Advice to Management

    You have to work as hard as your servers if you want them to respect and work hard for you. They are your teammates, not children that you are babysitting.
