  nothing extra tweaks are required to achieve this.

    <%= select_tag "days[]", options_for_select([ "Mon", "Tue", "Wed",
"Thu","Fri","Sat","Sun",], "Monday"),:multiple => true %>

This would ensure that your selection is stored into array "days[]".
You can store this as string into db with a delimiter of your choice
[preferably days.join(",")].

hope it was useful, else post me more details :)
