hostess (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – May 1, 2016
When i worked at ruby tuesday in morton and decatur it was very unprofessional. the managers didnt know what they were doing, they let the coworkers pretty much do whatever they wanted. money was stolen from our pay checks and it was just not a good work environment at all.
dishwasher (Former Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – April 29, 2016
Working there was horrible. Hours got cut for no reason, kept overstaffing the whole place. Managers were lazy and horrible. The only good manager was actually the GM, who was always working and helpingout . That is one thing I will say about PJ, always doing something. The other managers either stand around IN YOUR WAY in the BOH on their phone, or just stand around and tell other people to do their job for them. Now that PJ is gone I wouldn't recommend going there now
Grill Cook (Former Employee) – Hampton, VA – April 26, 2016
I cooked on the grill, prepared orders, and worked off of an order screen. I was also helped with maintaining sanitation. I learned working on multiple stations at one time. The management was fair and looked for ways to promote. My co-workers and I worked as a team. There was not much hard about the job, you have to be dedicated to do work even if it is hard work. It was a friendly environment, and a lot of the customers felt like family.

Ruby Tuesday can be safely described as a good foundation to start on for the aspiring server. However, given the demographic of the usual consumers (a retiring home featuring the low-tipping walking dead, or a day-care with kids running up and down the isles), its hard to say the average person would enjoy working here for long, were it not for the spectacular bond you create with your co-workers who are sharing your time in h*ll just as equally.
Friendly Staff, frequent out of work activities...
...if you're even invited, Managers are too split in personalities and agendas, must pay for meal, low tips, guests are typically stingy, and pompous.

Host (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – April 20, 2016
Ruby Tuesday is an ever evolving company that changes policies and procedures frequently. The advantage to that management style is that it often makes life better for the guest and for the employee. The disadvantage is that it sometimes does not feel to be well thought out for the guest and for the employee. I am grateful for my 6 years with this company. It was not always joyful but there were always new people coming in and out providing opportunities to make ones own joy! One of the best aspects of the job was the longevity of the employees, providing opportunity for teamwork to become a major factor in the aforementioned longevity. On a particularly busy shift being a part of a group that welcomed new employees, providing them with the opportunity to work together to get all guests satisfied, was the high point of my job. I had never worked in a restaurant before so I value the experience although it is not one I want to do again! As for a typical day, as a host I would begin with ensuring that all tables were ready for the next shift. That was not my job but I wanted to make sure the guests were well served as they entered the restaurant. I would check for reservations, make sure the correct menus were ready and prepare my area for a busy shift. Guests would arrive and be greeted at the door with menus in hand and a welcoming smile and greet, many would be welcomed by name. They would be ushered to their table while mentioning specials of the day or the lovely aroma of food from a table we were passing. There was continual communication with the servers as to availabilitymore... and if they had needs I could help with. This continued throughout the shift until the end at which time the closing check list began. Set-up was done for the next shift, inspecting children's items, the host stand for the next host, the restrooms for everyone and then I went home. My Fitbit showed that for each shift I would walk about 5,000 steps. I was then ready for the next day.less

Ruby Tuesdays is a friendly environment for great dinning. With great food selections, and awesome salad bar with a variety of toppings can make the dinning the experience different from all other restaurants
cool environment, descriptions of what i have learned at this establishment
server (Former Employee) – Lombard, IL – April 18, 2016
Ruby Tuesdays was an easier, laid back establishment, with a cool and modern environment. here i was a server, and would mainly tend to customers, i was big on customer service, i enjoy to stay organized and prioritize my tasks at hand, especially being a server. I feel a majority of server positions are essentially around the same thing, so considering i had some years of experience as a server prior to this i feel i didn't learn much, except for a new system, new beverages, new menus, and serving alcohol.
easy hours, made decent money in those hours, normally fun environment
minimum benefits, no hours, management was sub par but i have experienced much worse
Hostess, Server (Former Employee) – Stillwater, MN – April 13, 2016
Overall, I loved working at Ruby Tuesdays, the coworkers were very much like family. It was flexible with hours, plenty of opportunity to pick up shifts. I think if i were to have worked at a better location I would have enjoyed the pay much more.
Garden Bar Attendant & Cook (Current Employee) – Wilmington, NC – April 10, 2016
I have worked here for about a year and a half now. In this time, we have gone through two general managers, three salaried assistant-managers, and countless other staff. The turn-over rate is extremely high. Typical day: A lot of busy work Learned: Patience and how to work quickly Management: Needs to be more steady Co-Workers: Some of the best and worst people I've met Hardest part: Unity among the back and front employees Most enjoyable: Seeing people eat the food I cooked and smile
