we’’re looking for the cream of the crop, those who never settle for mediocrity, the tastemakers and taste-testers, and the ones who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. sound like you? check out the video below to learn more about what it’s like to work with us and live the sweetlife.

we start all teammates at an hourly rate of $9.5 - $10.5, above minimum wage. as the face of our brand, you deserve it!

head coaches, assistant coaches and treehouse (corporate) employees receive competitive salaries and are eligible for cash and equity incentives through our bonus plan.



the sweetlife starts with a work-life balance. teammates have flexibility over their schedules to make time for the important things in life: family, school, extracurriculars – you name it.

we also have a flexible vacation policy: take as much or as little time as you need to feel happy and and fulfilled.



voted favorite employee perk: enjoy free sweetgreen while on the job. in case you're wondering, salads don’t get old.

(fact: on average, teammates eat at sweetgreen 4x per week!)



we offer health, dental and vision insurance to head coaches, assistant coaches and treehouse employees.

discounted gym memberships and free fitness classes are also available. make the commitment to be good to yourself!



working at sweetgreen is an investment in yourself. beyond learning how to make a mean salad, you acquire cooking skills, learn how to balance a budget, have access to amazing mentors – the list goes on.

plus, you’'ll have fun along the way.



there’s nothing more exciting or worth waking up for in the morning than a contagious company culture, so we believe in creating and curating amazing experiences for our team.

some highlights: farm trips, happy hours, holiday parties, retreats and complimentary admission to sweetlife, our annual music + food festival.


you are the face of sweetgreen. responsible for crafting thoughtful, personalized experiences for your guests, your goal is to leave people better off than when we found them. you are a true team player, willing to get your hands dirty and do whatever it takes to keep your store running smoothly.


as a captain, you are responsible for either service (front of house) or the kitchen (back of house) with the support and guidance of the assistant coach. the service captain sets and enforces the expectation that every guest of sweetgreen should have a sweet experience, while the kitchen captain works with teammates to ensure that all quality control and food safety standards are met.

you oversee daily operations and work side by side with the head coach to manage and maintain excellent financials, labor and customer service. you live and breathe goal setting, helping each of your team captains set and achieve their personal goals and grow professionally. your efforts directly correlate to a strong team and pipeline for internal promotions.
