What do wait staff services include?

Hiring a Tasker for waiter service can help grow your business and meet expectations on days when there is so much going on. It doesn’t just have to be during the peak seasons for the hospitality industry, like Christmas and Valentine’s Day. It can also be on days when there’s a lot of foot traffic coming in. This can differ for every type of business. 

Bars and fine dining restaurants can need more people in the evening, while more family-friendly places may need additional servers during lunch hours and weekends. The trick is finding part-time staff that already have experience in what you need. This saves you time in training them and gives you more peace of mind. When putting up a task for wait staff for hire, here are some positions that you can look for:

Hosting staff

In most establishments, the wait staff and manager double as the host or hostess for the meal. However, there might be days when the table seating is more challenging to manage. Catering for special events done in the restaurant or conference room may also need more people to welcome guests, explain the menu, and ensure that everything goes smoothly. Some Taskers specialise and have years of experience in making clients feel like VIPs during their visit to your restaurant through excellent service and accommodating attitudes.

Serving staff

The serving staff is the backbone of your operations. The work is not easy, either! However, it is possible that hiring twice the number of your full-time team might hurt your financials. If you’re noticing orders getting switched up or staff members taking sick days, they might be not getting enough rest. Take time to review when the bulk of heavy work comes in and put up a Task for those hours. 

Depending on the type of your establishments, you can find entry-level and highly trainable Taskers who are looking to make additional money during their free time or experienced wait staff with years of working in fine dining restaurants. Your current team will be happy for the extra help, and you can be sure that guests are adequately served.

Bartenders and baristas

It’s not a complete meal without drinks, whether a fine cocktail in the evening or a delicious coffee concoction in the morning. There are so many talented bartenders and baristas here on Airtasker that you can work with. This can be when your regular guy (or gal!) can’t come in. 

Another instance is when you’re only in need of the service for special occasions like closed-off events or in-house promotions. You may also want to test out hiring a part-time staff before committing to a regular employee on payroll to ensure that it’s well-received by the guests and that the expense is manageable. 


Busy hours mean more plates coming in and leaving the kitchen. If you’re constantly running out of plates, glassware, and utensils during lunch or dinner, it might not be an inventory problem. You might just need more hands shuffling the plates and making sure they’re clean. Hiring a Tasker to help in the kitchen, whether specifically for dishwashing or in general, can also help you avoid a customer becoming irate for seeing a stain on their dinnerware. Avoid the embarrassment and the risk of losing your health licence by investing in a Tasker who can help.
