    I worked at Ruth's Chris Steak House full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours are not too crazy, schedule flexibility, team environment, shift meal, incentives to sell wine and add-ons. Top pay.

    Cons

    Place is enormous, a lot of walking and heavy lifting. Sidework can be overwhelming. Tip out is one of the most aggressive in the industry. Work holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Numbers are very important, but people make those numbers. Guests rule the place through opentable without much control from management. Managers are too at the mercy of higher powers to deliver numbers. In the end is all about people.

    I worked at Ruth's Chris Steak House full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The buisness was always constant, so never a shortage of hours or tips. Management was always very understanding, fair, and knowledgeable. Performance based schedules, which is how many places should implement in my opinion. And the majority of my coworkers are still great friends to this day.

    Cons

    There was a little bit of trouble with prompting from within. If you were good at your job, but wamted to move up it seemed to take forever because they would hire a new employeeb first.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    tip out distribution could be a little more server friendly by paying support staff more than the 2.15 per hour
