Chef (Former Employee), Prattville, AL – November 2, 2013
Pros: enough coworkers to have a relaxed work environment, a lot of help, and friendly staff.
Cons: store and general managers were extremely biased. asked me to train a new chef, repeatedly reminded me that he was my replacement.
Working at Ruby Tuesdays was difficult at first. I was new to the cooking industry and was given a lot of tasks day once. After my first week it became second nature. My coworkers were all older than me, but treated me as an adult even though I was barely 18. I was always complimented if I did something right, and if I made a mistake it was forgiven. – more... The primary chef in the kitchen was the only person I had to take orders from and he had faith in my abilities because he trained me himself. – less
Very interesting and productive day while working with the company.
Line Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee), College Park, GA – August 22, 2014
We are a Franchise restaurant. I enjoy the respect of my fellow employees, managers and the owner. My co-workers are a great group and I find easy to work with. In this slow economy it seems every customer is on the edge. It is nice to see the managers, working side by side with us, to help out
Host/Busser/Food runner (Former Employee), Council Bluffs, IA – August 19, 2014
Pros: free meal on every shift. nice co workers.
Cons: no breaks
Working at Ruby Tuesday was all right. On busy nights it was kind of fun only because it was so busy that time went by faster. But on slow nights it was boring everyone just stood around, we didn't have to do anything the managers stayed in the office or behind the bar. They didn't think of extra things for us to do so on the slow nights time drug on. – more... When I worked there I learned how hard servers really have to work. I didn't think it took as much as it does until I saw it first hand. The tips are their paychecks. Tips are how servers pay there bills. The managers were okay for the most part. All of the employees got along pretty well. The hardest part of my job there was the really busy nights when we were on waits and I had too tell guests that I couldn't seat them right away and they would look around and say well theres an empty table right there and I would have to explain that it is being cleaned off and there was people in front of them that got to sit there and they would get mad at me and leave or get mad at me and ask for my manager. – less
Great place to work. Great hard working motivated team!
Bartender (Current Employee), Arvada CO. – August 17, 2014
I thing I love most about my job is that I am never bored. I have been employed at Ruby Tuesdays for over a year, and it that time I have made my own signature drinks and shots, gained some great regulars, and marketed happy hour to bring in more business. I like the team effort in the restaurant; it makes for a great experience for the guest and makes – more... life easier. I have learned that if you make people feel welcome and take good care of them they will come back! – less
Professional Bartender (Current Employee), Daytona Beach, FL – August 15, 2014
Pros: co-workers are a family, supportive management, great tips during high seasons, taking pride in serving high quality drinks and food.
Cons: salary is up and down depending on weather, tourism, and any events that may be going on in the area.
I have really enjoyed my time with Ruby Tuesday. My current location is in a tourist area and the only way to make a salary is to work all evenings. I need a more steady income and lifestyle. Management is extremely supportive in my location and they approve any vacation time I have requested. The most enjoyable part of my job is building and maintaining – more... my customer base. I am very much a people person and love interacting with my guests. The hardest part of the job is predicting income. Its very difficult to make really high money one evening and the next, is slow with no customers. Working in a tourist area is rough. – less
Trainer - Bartender - Server - Expo (Former Employee), Quincy, IL – August 13, 2014
Pros: assistant managers are great to work with
Cons: new general manager doesn't know how to talk to employees or guests. she is very unproffesional
had an ok time working for years. Management at the store was great and always listened to concerns. Room for advancement just doesn't exist and when it does, its not what was promised or close. Benefits package is way too high and not worth it.
Host and Server (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – August 12, 2014
Pros: great friends and environment
Cons: slow work, no benefits
I did hosting, serving and bussing, bar stocking, and mall food deliveries. I learned customer service skills, serving, and how to efficiently seat customers. My co-workers and management were great people, and Ruby Tuesday had a very family-like work environment. I really loved working with customers and serving great food, and giving people an awesome – more... experience. The only part that wasn't great was the mall was starting to lose traffic and businesses were closing down. – less
