Teammate

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.

Assistant Coach

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.

Head Coach

every great team is led by a great leader. you lead enthusiastically, with a focus on exceptional customer service and results. your responsibilities include everything from mentoring team members to managing all front and back of house operations to architecting the ultimate customer experience. you are a quick thinker, a problem solver, a skilled communicator and a world-class motivator.

Trainer

you are a true "people person", responsible for educating and training all new associates. your extensive knowledge of front and back of house policies and procedures, along with sweetgreen's culture and core values, make you invaluable to the onboarding and store opening processes.

Area Leader

you support head coaches across a number of sweetgreen locations, helping them achieve their labor and sales goals and keeping them aligned with company objectives. you coordinate store repairs and maintenance so the team can focus its attention on architecting the best guest experience possible.
