Earls Kitchen + Bar – Why Work For Us?

WHY EARLS?

Our Soul: We believe in people living large purposeful lives filled with fun. 

The Earls Experience (aka our culture) is unlike any other. Our people live our soul every day and love what they do. When you combine passion, purpose and fun, magic happens! See for yourself.

WHAT'S IT LIKE TO WORK AT EARLS?

We believe in the gifts of being present, providing non-judgmental feedback, catching people doing things right and creating empowerment by asking questions to build trust, cohesiveness and commitment.


OUR STORY

Some 30 years ago, Leory Earl Fuller and his sone Stanley Earl Fuller had a simple idea: a laid-back burger & beer joint.

When the restaurant started, there was no question about what the name would be. It had to be called Earls.

The restaurant quickly took off because, well, who would say no to burgers & beer? So they hired talented people and travelled the world to taste, drink and get inspired. Then they came back and applied all of that to the menu.

And with that came attention and awards and even more talented people.

A lot has changed since those early days. But Earls is still a family business. And it’s filled with people who are genuinely passionate about great food and drinks served in an inviting environment.

    Pros

    Earls is such an amazing company that has taught me so much about how to be a better leader both professionally and personally. I've become a better communicative Individual and I have grown more in the last 2.5 years than I could have imagined. I received the chance only 1 year into working for earls to move from small town London Ontario Canada to Miami the biggest store in my companies history after being "just a shift leader and lounge girl". I did this through showing up as myself and earls recognizing that special quality in me I didn't even see at the time. Genuinely and deeply love this company for everything it has given me in the short time I've been there. Can't wait to stew what's next

    Cons

    The hours are long and the path will never be easy. This is not a job that gives you the answer but challenges you to find it yourself which can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your high level management more. We love the company and give it our all sometimes. I think from the top of VPs to regional to in store level management we need to Holla Back more when someone does something at the store level or whatever lives and breathes what earls is! Love you all though!

    Interview

    Always best to walk in. Never call during lunch or dinner hours, it just shows you are unaware of the business. Fill out the application completely and then ask if we are hiring when you turn it in in person.
