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, pet, 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 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

At First Watch, we take a creative approach to Daytime Dining led by a focus on and commitment to freshness. Each item is made-to-order and prepared with care - you will not find microwave ovens, heat lamps or deep fryers in our kitchens. Every morning, we arrive at the crack of dawn to slice and juice fresh fruits and vegetables, bake muffins, brew our fresh coffee and whip up our French Toast batter from scratch. Our award-winning chef-driven menu includes elevated executions of classic favorites for breakfast, lunch and brunch, along with First Watch-specific specialties such as our protein-packed Quinoa Power Bowl(r), Farmstand Breakfast Tacos, Avocado Toast, Morning Meditation (juiced in-house daily), our new Vodka Kale Tonic, Chickichangas and our famous Million Dollar Bacon. While our menu constantly evolves, our focus on - and commitment to - freshness never wavers.

We're always searching for culinary-minded people who are proud to serve fresh food. It's all about quality, and we love that. Our managers have to love it too.
