We are always looking for people to round out our circle. Go ahead, take that next step in becoming a part of the Max & Erma’s family and APPLY.

A Better Place to Eat and Work

PRIDE

We are a company that consistently gives back to the communities we serve, is mindful of our citizenship responsibility, and continues to pursue sustainability efforts.

ASCEND

We maintain a promote-from-within mentality with advancement and transfer opportunities. We’ll help you get to where you want to be. Both our President and COO were once dishwashers with the company.

We’ve got a REFERRAL Program that can put extra cash in your pocket and your friends’ pocket. Any job is better when it’s done with friends.

FOOD

We love staying on top of or even ahead of food trends – and you get to eat it for FREE. A ‘shifter’ around here means an entire meal. On top of that, we offer additional generous discounts at all of our restaurants…even when you’re not working.

STORIES

There is no better place to people watch and gather stories than the restaurant industry. If you know, you know.

MUSIC

Listen to catchy music while you work, dancing encouraged.
Bonus – you can hit your daily steps goals without even noticing it.

PURPOSE

Your ultimate goal is to make others happy. And full. And sometimes a little extra happy and a little extra full.

FLEXIBILITY

We offer hyper flexible scheduling. It’s also super intuitive – receive your schedule, trade shifts, request days off all from your phone.

CULTURE

To us, ‘Work-Hard Play-Hard’ not only means we love to surround ourselves with people who work hard on shift and who also have passions outside of work. It also means that work and play can co-exist. Work should absolutely be fun. 

My purpose at Max and Erma’s is to keep guests coming back! My guests are truly like family to me and I want them to feel that we will always be there! We share moments, not just good food. Another perk is I work with my best friend.
