Server (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – April 5, 2017
Working at RT gave me many new opportunities to improve my serving and customer service skills, learned how to work quickly and efficiently, and tackle difficult problem with the quickest and best solutions. Lackluster management was a problem, as well as favoritism with work schedules.
Fast paced, great people, good learning environment.

Ruby Tuesday was a solid work environment and the experience helped my service skills grow. Interacting with my customers and understanding how the food industry works were a few top reasons I enjoyed this job .
Very high volume resturant with little room to move up in the company but a somewhat rewarding atmosphere
Kitchen Coordinator/Cook (Current Employee) – Limerick, PA – April 7, 2017
Ruby tuesday seems to be the underdog in the resturant chains, we are located in a shopping center like many other RT's, so we have very high traffic easily 50k weekends during peak seasons. The job can be very rewarding from the perspective of the amount of people we service. Overall the company has very little room to move up through the company and it seems like most managers are hired from outside. General cook requirements of preparing food and cooking food with accuracy. Management tends to care very little about the workers and more about the effectiveness often skipping breaks or even changing schedules the day of or day before.
50% meal comp when working otherwise 25% off. Rewarding experience based on volume
Short to no breaks, hours dip low in the off season, general lack of care for workers, during peak hours you could work 12-16 hour shifts. Doubles with no breaks.
Chef (Former Employee) – Clinton, NC – April 7, 2017
My review will be short and sweet. Pay was not good enough to support my family nearly working 38 hours a week. You couldn't get overtime and a lot of times were understaffed. I was taken off the schedule while under doctors care due to a severe intestinal issue. Was fun working with staff great people . Management all but one was terrible.
Restaurant Coordinator (Former Employee) – Lithonia, GA – April 7, 2017
Amazing food, fun experiences at work, and great networking opportunities. I had the best managers out of the two different locations except for two. They showed favoritism which hindered my income, forcing me to find another job. Thankful for the lesson
kitchen manager and general manger uneducated in kitchens
Chef (Former Employee) – East Greenwich, RI – April 6, 2017
the Kitchen and General manager were not educated in the kitchen and proper use of equipment. cooks were understaffed and overworked. rarely hired new cooks even when desperately needed. very little fresh food most was frozen. a lot of flash thawing was being done.
lack of breaks when pulling double shifts. lack of kitchen employess

I LOVED working at ruby Tuesday. The management was fun to be around. The other employees were helpful and nice. The restaurant was ALWAYS clean. If we had an unexpected rush, the kitchen staff and FOH staff always held it down without missing a beat.

Ruby Tuesday isn't that bad of a place to work but the organization and management sucks big time. The hardest part of this job is carrying heavy plates but the most enjoyable was taking good money home every night,
Server Assistant and Garden Bar Attendant (Former Employee) – York, PA – April 3, 2017
As I watched my male counterparts move up in the workplace before they started school, I was left as a hostess despite my many requests to be trained as a waitress. When I was trained as a Garden Bar assistant, I was paid less than others in the same position.
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, VA – April 2, 2017
Not a great job for a career. Corporate does not do a good job and I wouldn't be surprised if the company goes out of business soon. It is decent work for high schoolers and college students who are hard working.
Server-Bartender (Current Employee) – Dillon, CO – April 1, 2017
I've been serving for roughly six years and your fellow coworkers become like family. This is true for Ruby's as well. The management however could use some work. I've seen more people in and out of this restaurant than anywhere. One manager fires people for personal vendettas. It can get busy but the managers need to hire more but instead they work their current workers to exhaustion.
