"Anton arranged a waitress ( Natali ) who was very efficient and also communicated well. Knew her job and took charge of the evening. I would surely use Anton again and Natali again."

"Daisy was really helpful on this task. Pleasant and proactive, exactly what I needed to make sure my party ran smoothly and so I could entertain my guests and give them my full attention. We had a bit of an issue with a previous task running over which meant she was later to get to me but she kept me informed at all times and we made it work. Would be happy to use Daisy again and recommend her to others for a similar task. "

Top Wait Staff related questions

Can I hire a team or a group of people through Airtasker?

Hiring a team is doable on Airtasker. You can put up a task asking specifically for a team of people and provide one fee for all of their services. On the flip side, you can also put up several tasks and hire Taskers for each to be part of a team. This way, you can identify the fees for each and indicate any specific responsibilities. For example, a cocktail waitress can have different duties from a barista.

Do I need to provide a uniform for the wait staff?

Ideally, the company provides for a uniform for the wait staff. However, if this is not possible given the time constraints or if you think it’s not practical for part-time employees, you can ask them to wear something similar to the full-time staff. It can be black trousers and long-sleeved tops for formal establishments and jeans and a black shirt for more casual places.

What qualifications should I be looking for in a wait staff?

There’s no specific degree required in applying as wait staff. However, those with a degree or studying hotel management or culinary arts may be more familiar with what needs to be done. They may also require a higher professional fee as compared to those with zero experience. Consider the overall situation. It may be better to spend higher on hiring an experienced restaurant waitress or waiter instead.

Is there a minimum number of hours needed when hiring a wait staff on Airtasker?

No, there is none! Airtasker doesn’t require a minimum number of hours. However, consider that a shift shorter than two hours might not be an attractive task for someone who still has to dress up, commute, and learn to do the task. An example to consider is hiring a Tasker daily for now but agreeing on an hourly rate.

Can I hire the same Tasker more than once?

Definitely. Some Taskers build a connection with clients, especially for services that require knowledge of menus, services, and pricing. Simply coordinate with your chosen Tasker regarding schedule arrangements. We highly encourage booking the subsequent engagements via Airtasker for the safety of both parties.

Can I book other services for my business on Airtasker?

Yes, there are plenty of professionals who can help you on our platform. If you’re struggling with reconciling some receipts, you can hire a bookkeeper or an accountant. If you need help filling out those tables every night, a sales staff, ads specialist, or a PR practitioner might help you increase reservations and walk-ins. 

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. 

Dishwashers

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.
