The Earls Experience

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 people are passionate about hospitality and food. Above all else, we just love what we do. In fact, Earls Kitchen + Bar was voted as the #1 place in Canada to work in 2016 by Glassdoor.

Every second Friday, each head office team throws a pretty epic themed party (wine is always involved). It’s a great kickoff to the weekend and a chance for everyone to connect and give recognition for a job well done.


We have a serious case of culinary wanderlust. Our Culinary + Development team travels all over the world to find inspiration and discover new flavours and ingredients for our globally inspired menu.


We’re all about rewarding awesomeness. Every year, we recognize our top performing General Managers and Head Chefs at the Earls Experience Awards. Lucky winners are rewarded with a coveted culinary food trip. In 2014, winners feasted their way through Hong Kong and Japan. Partners and leaders are recognized regularly through our Partner Recognition program and annual regional Leader Partner Awards. And, everyday, our people recognize each other for a job well done by tweeting an #EarlsKudos.

We live with purpose


Through the Vision + Goals program, you will learn how to create a vision for your life and write, speak and share your goals to become your best self.


Our benefits program promotes health and wellness. Salaried leaders and head office partners receive a personal spending account to help support a healthy and green lifestyle. From gym memberships and car share programs to energy efficient products for your home, we’re all about helping you live a large and purposeful life filled with fun.

It’s the essence of entrepreneurship at Earls. You won’t find any bureaucracy or red tape here. We want you to love your job so each and every person is encouraged and empowered to make their own decisions to support the business in the best way possible.


We offer financial support to kitchen partners looking to pursue a culinary career and their chef certification through the Red Seal program in Canada and the American Culinary Federation (ACF) in the US.

Looking to experience a new city? Big things are on the horizon and there is a ton of opportunity for our people to grow their careers through promotions and our Brand Ambassador program. While we started in Canada, we’re continuing our US expansion with upcoming locations in Chicago, Tysons and Orlando.


Leadership development courses

Our people take responsibility for continuous learning and development and we support you 100% along the way. You will hone your leadership skills and learn how to effectively lead your team onwards and upwards.

You will always be in the know of what’s going on company wide. Our company intranet myEarls is where partners access the latest company news, connect with peers, learn about new menu roll outs and access continuous training.
