      Pros

      Having prior experience in the hospitality industry I can confidently say that Earls is by far one of the best companies to work for in the industry. Management knows all of their employees. As well as headquarters comes in regularly and give fair opportunity to gain feedback on their management by speaking to any employee who would like to share thoughts, concerns or positive comments. The staff are beyond friendly and everyone works as a team resulting in a fun work place and very accommodating regarding swapping shifts. There is constantly opportunities for growth within this company and they want to help their employees strive.

      Cons

      *THESE ARE CONS AS OF COVID* The location is at the heart of the entertainment district therefore the traffic used to be business individuals. However with COVID-19 and the closures the traffic has been very slow and or a difficult crowd.
