    I worked at Earls Kitchen + Bar part-time (Less than a year)


    I met a lot of awesome people through Earls and that more than anything kept me working there as long as I did. The food is terrific and Earls as a company is very organized


    They openly prefer to have women as opposed to men take many service roles. They would straight say they would not train any men to tend the bar even though we were in need of new bar tenders and had volunteers.

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to the little details that customers probably don't even notice like if there are more women or men serving in the lounge or tending the bar, most customers do not actually notice or care

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Earls Kitchen + Bar.


    I applied online and had face-to-face interview a few days later. Both people I interviewed with where extremely nice. First meeting was with the current office manager and then the second was with the general manager. Both were very easy to talk to.

Company Updates

  • "Create a problem of an extraordinary future and watch how it changes what you see." - Mo Jessa, President Earls Kitchen + Bar:

    Achieve an extraordinary future by creating context

    The lesson this week came from my business coach. To maintain the energy required to achieve an extraordinary future, I have to recreate this future in words and actions everyday. This was a massive insight. The future I want is actually my context. As we learn in leadership development at Earls, "context is decisive."

  • "For any outcome you want, there is a way of being and acting that can get it for you. You just have to be willing to do it." - Mo Jessa, President Earls Kitchen + Bar:

    Be willing to do the work to get the outcome you want

    If we start with such caveats, we have little chance to build lifelong relationships. When people ask me for advice on how to deal with failure, I always go back to the same adage: "For any outcome you want, there is a way of being and acting that can get it for you.
