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

    Pros

    After working there only 2 months i've already been promoted and offered 2 more positions. I make $11-$12 an hour. good pay, awesome people, management can be a little to possessive at times. Again this is the restaurant business it's so up and down. So stressful.

    Cons

    NO work life balance if you're full time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more Hosts/Server Assistants

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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!
