Guest Service Coordinator/Supervisor - Full Time (Former Employee) – Germantown, MD – January 18, 2017
I worked almost all positions(server, bartender, garden bar attendant, dishwasher, busboy, and shift leader. it is not a well managed company but my immediate supervisors was nice and was willing to work with me on schedule and any personal problems I may have that effected my work. Breaks are not given, benefits were not heard of, but still up-selling and gathering rewards member was required. at the end of the day all you can look at was how much you made in tips and go home.
Server, Bartender, Bar Manager (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – February 11, 2017
Great place to work if you get the right shifts at the right restaurant. I suppose it's that way with every restaurant. I've seen quite a decline in the sales and number though and lots of Ruby Tuesday's have shut down.
SERVER (Current Employee) – Mary Esther Florida, Anniston Alabama – February 11, 2017
I learned that I love working with the public, and I hate not being able to advance more than I already have. the mangement was amazing and will/would do anything for anyone, but i do not feel the support from the company itself.
Wait Staff (Former Employee) – Bryant, AR 72022 – February 9, 2017
The day is very similar to other server positions. Bus your tables, keep your areas clean. But the management seemed to ignore staffing errors such as not accomadating the staff for holidays. The Store Manager in particular was prone to curse at employees or punish the entire floor for mistakes that were made consistantly by only a select few. I did not feel satisfied or respected.
Discounted meal, full service bar for guests, self-serve salad bar
Lack of customers, high prices for mediocre menu, childish managers
Garden Bar Attendant (Former Employee) – Litchfield, IL – February 8, 2017
Not a fun place to work. So much stress. Cooks don't wear gloves. Cooks pick there nose and are nasty and then they put there hands on your food. I hated working and seeing this. Horrible management also.
Come to work clock in greet and serve customers. Management was always nice and helpful when needed. the workplace was really laid back not a lot of drama. most enjoyable part was getting to work in a calm environment
It has always been a fun and energetic atmosphere. Ruby Tuesday has a very loyal workforce and very loyal guest.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Gulf Breeze, FL – February 7, 2017
Daily it is always a challenge to complete our tasks. It is very hard work but the team works together to achieve results. As a manager I learned many skills that translate to other service oriented businesses. The culture has changed greatly since the founder of Ruby Tuesday retired several years ago. We seem to be wondering right now searching for our niche in the market. I enjoy working with our guest and teams on a daily basis. The guest and teams are the reason I love theek hospitality business.
Working with people.
Expected to work hourly functions to make labor budgets.
Dishwasher (Current Employee) – Howell, NJ – February 6, 2017
Almost every day I walk into a mountain of dishes. Then people are telling me they need there stuff back but I just can't do everything at the same time. They help everybody except one person that this really putting an unfair burden on one person. I also wonder why they would expect one person to do both salad bar and dish that would be expecting one person to do two completely different jobs at the same time. I think they should open with a dishwasher and not leave so many dishes to do for me. Some things I do like about working here is schedule mostly consistent working Friday to Tuesday and being off Wednesday and Thursday.
I learned alot of management skills. Fast-paced environment. Great food. The company however, was more interested in stock-holders than their employees. Pay wasn't as competitive as it should have been. Lack of good labor.
