Want to know what are the top 3 must-haves for finding the perfect event waitstaff in Miami? Then listen up!

It's no easy feat finding good talent these days, we all can attest to that. There are many people who work in the industry of hospitality as waitstaff, but locating the top talent that truly takes pride in their work and is good at their job, is the ultimate goal.

That is why it is extremely important that you know what qualities and attributes in your waitstaff that you need to look for ahead of time. You don't want to be left hanging, hiring someone who you thought was a rock star waitstaff employee on paper, but when it comes to the live run seeing them work at your event, and you find out that they've never waited tables before in their life, and your event is now a complete disaster.

To avoid this terrible occurrence, we have our top 3 factors that everyone should consider when looking to hire waitstaff in Miami.

What Determines the Number of Event Waitstaff?

The number of event waitstaff you will need is not a complicated calculation. It's actually pretty straightforward. It's based on the number of guests you are anticipating and the type of event you are planning to hold.
#1 Relevant Experience Is the Most Important
One of the most common mistakes that event planners and other recruiters make when looking to hire event waitstaff, is that they think that hiring any kind of waiter will fit the bill. This could not be farther from the truth.

You can't put a typical restaurant waitstaff member into an event that requires them to work a banquet for example. They do not have the required work skills, training, or specific experience in order to provide the appropriate level of guest service that you would need.
#2 Culture Fit of Waitstaff Is a Very Important Factor
Making sure the waitstaff fit together as a team, and suit the job they are taking on is an integral part of hiring. Do they have adequate knowledge about their job role, about the industry in general, and do they show a genuine interest and passion for their work? Are they able to hold a conversation easily with others?
#3 And of Course Personality
Personality is everything, especially when it comes to working in hospitality. We all gravitate towards others that show positive, charming, and warm personalities - someone who is a genuine "people person".

The wrong attitude can mean a team that isn't cohesive, and that stirs up problems for both the staff and the guests. You want waitstaff that is happy to be there and happy in life and exude that energy in their work.
