    I worked at Ryan's part-time

    Pros

    Always had plenty of hours available
    Every day when you come in you know what you will be doing
    Mangers will help when someone gets behind

    Cons

    You have to pay for food even though a bunch of food gets wasted at the end of the night
    Pay is low and it is very rare you get a raise
    Some of the managers treat you like you are below them

    Advice to Management

    Treat your team members better and they will make more effort.

    I have been working at Ryan's full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    For staff it is fine unless they are cutting hours. For management they get the short end of the stick working over 60 hrs per week and not getting pay to show for it.

    I worked at Ryan's part-time

    Pros

    Money was good. Flexibility was good. Days off were the best. Always had dollar bills and loose change. Salad bar good

    Cons

    Corporate management is a joke! Everything about corporate management is a darn joke. No wonder this place has went under so many times.

    Advice to Management

    Shut down, clean house, and start all over. From President, Marketing, to HR let them all go. This place cares nothing about "actual" customer service

    Pros

    Grea staff, friendly customers, easy work, opportunity to be trained in alot of areas where help is needed.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, bad management, unsanitary, felt bad serving old food in a dirty store but not enough hours or material for fresh food every half hour

    Advice to Management

    Communication( staff and guests) should have store cleaning floor plan to where everything gets done. Focus on job.

    I worked at Ryan's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great insurance, good, loyal customers. Decent food. Other than that there is nothing good I can say about this company.

    Cons

    Extra long hours. Open 365 days. Top management is clueless & greedy. Too many chiefs in top management. They are not a proactive company. Every day they react to what other competitors are doing & usually copy them. Felt like a glorified employee instead of a manager because every day we had to send people home & run their positions to save on labor for the entire company.

    Advice to Management

    You may have sold your soul to the devil. We have families that we would like to spend our time with away from work. My world does not revolve around the business. This is what happens when you have incompetence for upper management. Multiple bankruptcies, you don't even make your food from scratch! Don't think they will survive for too long.

    I worked at Ryan's (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Area Director didn't mind helping when busy.

    Cons

    They are trying to save money by cutting benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about the employee's. Cutting out accumulated time off was awful.
