Join Our Team

At First Watch, we believe that our managers are the most important people in the company. Why? Each manager within our four walls is tasked with being a leader, a mentor and a coach, while setting an example for the entire team to follow. Managers at First Watch carry a lot of responsibility and authority, which is why they are so carefully selected and highly valued.

Benefits Better
Than Bacon

By now, you’ve probably gotten a feel for our “You First” philosophy, referring to the importance of putting people first. When it comes to our employees that means offering the support they need, when they need it. That’s why we offer competitive benefits to all our managers - health, dental, vision, company paid life insurance and short term disability. We are committed to the personal and professional development of our managers, so we’re proud to offer an employer matched 401K retirement savings plan as well as educational development and professional advancement opportunities. And of course there’s the benefit of no night shifts, EVER. Not having to work nights allows our managers time to spend with their families. First Watch managers can be home for dinner every night - while it may be hard to put a price tag on that, it’s surely a benefit that’s better than bacon!

Culinary Masters Wanted

We’re always searching for culinary-minded people who are proud to serve fresh food. Our creative menu at First Watch takes an elevated approach to traditional and innovative dishes, including crave-able items like Avocado Toast, Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. We offer healthy, flavorful favorites like house-made granola and pico de gallo, organic greens, house-roasted vegetables and cage-free eggs as well as more indulgent, traditional breakfast, brunch and lunch offerings. It’s all about quality, and we love that. Our managers have to love it too.

First Watch is growing
– FAST – and so can you!

Yeah, we’re investing in real estate across the country, but more importantly, we are investing in our people. As we continue to grow, it is vital that we strengthen our foundation by hiring and promoting experienced professionals who not only have a track record of success, but also whose values are aligned with all of ours. After all, we’re in the people business!
