Restaurant Manager (Current Employee), Lancaster, PA – September 11, 2014
I've worked for Ruby Tuesday for several years. I've moved up and become a manager. The top leadership has made many massive changes over those years. At first they were great. Eventually they went to far in the wrong direction, many stepped down or were let go at the top, and now under new direction are back on the track to great things
Hostess/Waitress (Former Employee), Mason City, IA – September 8, 2014
Pros: discount on food after work
Cons: short breaks
The food is probably the best experience of Ruby Tuesday. Anything you get is delicious. Especially the chicken parmesan pasta and the asiago peppercorn sirloin. The garden bar is delightful as well, I love the croutons they make.
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee), Kissimmee, FL – September 3, 2014
Pros: free food, education
Everyday was different in the restaurant business. Each day consisted of team meetings, ensuring customer satisfaction and a clean environment. Some days included creating a schedule for team members or making projected goals for the month/week/day. The hardest part of this job was staffing. The area in which the restaurant was located was hard to staff – more... with great team members. The most enjoyable part of this job was the customers. I love to put out fires:) – less
Host/Server (Former Employee), Columbia, SC – August 29, 2014
Pros: schedule flexibility
Cons: host had to clean the bathrooms/clean windows/dust
The most enjoyable part was greeting the guests, both newcomers & frequent patrons. I learned that working on Saturday nights was a challenge because it was usually crowded. The hardest part was trying to please the guest while trying to make sure the kitchen did not get overwhelmed .
Waitress/ host (Former Employee), Sanford, NC – August 27, 2014
Pros: interacting with others and 50% off meals
Cons: short to no breaks, poor management
Waiting on tables was fun, getting to connect with others. the job itself was not difficult even though at times there were set backs and customers who were hard to please. Sometimes we had to work at a fast pace which I enjoyed for the most part. Ruby Tuesday had a poor management team. Managers were unprofessional and showed a lot of favoritism, and – more... were sometimes inappropriate. With my experience at Ruby Tuesday I learned to focus strictly on my work, and I learned how to create way to satisfy customers. The schedules although they were flexible they were always changing. – 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
