Why Work at Ruth’s Chris Aruba

Empowering Benefits

Ruth built a reputation for legendary steaks and premier service by hiring passionate, hard-working people like herself – and treating them like family. For her that was more than a business philosophy. It was a personal promise. At Ruth’s Chris, this promise begins with a solid benefits package, which includes:

  • Competitive compensation packages
  • Management Incentive Performance Plan
  • 401(k) Retirement Plan
  • Medical, dental and vision benefits
  • Life insurance
  • Excellent training and a leadership development program
  • Vacation
  • Short-term and long-term disability benefits for management
  • Hourly team member benefits at a 24-hour or more work week

A Culture of Caring

Ruth dreamed big and worked hard, but she knew she couldn’t achieve those dreams alone. From the beginning, she made a promise to take care of the people who helped her achieve her dream, which is why Caring continues to be one of our core beliefs.

And while Ruth was always one to insist on perfection – another value still ingrained in our culture – she also knew the importance of celebrating wins in the spirit of laissez les bon temps rouler, a nod to her restaurants’ New Orleans roots to “let the good times roll.”

Keeping our values firmly in mind ensures that we evolve in ways consistent with our heritage and build a future of which we are proud.
