When you work at Homeroom, you're part of something special.
Homeroom is way more than just big bowls of mac and cheese. Want to know what truly sets us apart from most other restaurants? It’s our people. The hard-working, passionate, talented people that make up the homeroom family.
When you work at Homeroom, you’re part of something pretty special. You have a voice. You are empowered, and you have a chance to learn, observe and be part of what it takes to run a business.
Our mission is To Be the Best Part of People’s Day, and we mean it equally for guests and employees. Join us and see what it’s like to work at a truly employee-focused company.
Here’s a look at just a few of the awesome benefits of working @ Homeroom:
Fair Wages and Benefits:
Every single person who works at Homeroom earns a high, thrivable, wage, and has the opportunity to grow within the company. Whether you start as a busser or a manager, everyone on our team is compensated at a rate higher than industry standard. And, we offer health care benefits to all full-time staff, and paid sick days.
Get Paid to Learn about Business:
Homeroom is an open-book finance business, which means we share important financial metrics with all of our employees. Every week, we hold a meeting called “Recess,” where we teach you about the inner workings of a successful restaurant, and we encourage you to take ownership over a financial metric to help improve the overall business. Recess is also where you get to sample new products and monthly specials, and discuss all important issues facing the business. And, we pay you to attend.
Some of our greatest managers started as hosts, and our most talented servers started as bussers. We love watching the people on our staff learn and grow into whatever positions they aspire to have.
$500 Monthly Employee Fund:
Every month, employees at Homeroom get a $500 stipend to spend on fun outings, parties or treats for the entire staff. We have a whole employee committee open to everyone that’s dedicated to figuring out how best to spend this money.
