A great place to learn important people skills and to appreciate the hard work that goes into how a restaurant operates.
Working at Ruby Tuesday introduced me to a whole set of skills I thought I would never need, but instead showed me that they are super important in a typical work environment. Customer service, guest appreciation, time management, speed vs. accuracy (when it came to either running food, talking to people and cleaning); these are a few of the skills I learned working here.
The co-workers are probably the best part about the job. If you ever came in with a sour mood, you were almost guaranteed to have a smile on your face by the end of the shift.
The hardest part about this job would be trying to balance out what I did in a stretch of time. As a server assistant, I had a list of "mini-jobs," such as bussing and cleaning tables, being a host and greeting people and running food to their respective table in a timely manner. It really keeps you on your toes, as sometimes you get pulled in multiple directions at the busiest of moments. The key thing I learned from this was to think, "what is the most important thing to do right now?" and just do it.
