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

    Pros

    I had good management and a nice atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    I hardly made more than gas money to get to work as a host.

    As a chain, they have certain speels to recite to guests. As a guest myself in these chains, it's unnecessary and fake. Let's allow improvisation!

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

    Pros

    Some of my coworkers were pretty cool. There is a lot of downtime where you don't have much to do so you get time to socialize with other employees.

    Cons

    Management is really strict, servers can be very picky. Sometimes there is a large rush and you don't even have time to go to the bathroom for a while.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out a little bit. Give us free food everyone now and then if there is a mess up in the kitchen. Don't expect so much out of us.

    I worked at Ruby Tuesday part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's easy to make quick money. The shifts are (usually) pretty short, so it's a great job to have while in school.

    Cons

    Customers can be a pain, but that's true with every restaurant. Sometimes you'll get poor tips, but it usually balances out.

    Advice to Management

    I would say close down the restaurants that don't bring in much revenue, an for put that money into renovating the other restaurants, but they just did that.
