    I worked at Earls Kitchen + Bar full-time

    Pros

    Honestly the company is truly about growth from within. They placed a heavy emphasis on cultivating talent.

    Cons

    Working at the bar from opening day just left a negative taste in my mouth. It felt as if the bartenders were the step children.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIQ33

    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: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIQNQ

    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.
