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

    Pros

    I work very close to the home office, there's always a feeling like we have to be the best restaurant, but it just makes people strive to be the best workers we can be. Everyone is friendly and this is the cleanest restaurant I've worked in so far.

    Cons

    Management can be a bit egotistical. If you don't have a good per-person-average (PPA) you won't get shifts, and the PPA is entirely lucked based since sometimes people only want salad bar and water.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the requirement that PPA determines the schedule. Other than that everything seems to be running smoothly. I overall, have no real complaints, it's a fun place to work.

    Pros

    You can make money if management doesn't hate you.

    It's not that bad if you are strong and can see through the b.s.

    Cons

    management
    coupons
    management not standing up to guests

    Advice to Management

    Stop bickering within each other, come together, boss up and be professional. End favoritism, make all of your workers great so you're not depending on a select few.
