    I worked at Ruth's Chris Steak House full-time

    Pros

    Ruth is an inspiration and someone you wanted to work for. Someone to look up to and work harder than ever. Great money for working 25 hours a week or less.

    Cons

    Appreciate more of the employees and management who are going above and beyond for the company with more than just +1 service. Has integrity, honesty and who loves what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Cons. Ruth’s Chris is not the same as it once was. You push the sizzle and the core values but you don’t practice them yourself.

    Pros

    Make a great amount of money. Great stepping stone to get to a better managed company.

    Cons

    Company does not care much about you, the business make money and good money based off the name and therefore it can seem as if it is ran by itself.
    Also benefits such as insurance is not the best.
