Why Los Angeles Party Staff Should be Ordered Through an Agency

Julia's Blog about Event Staffing / January 20th, 2022 / ~ 8 minutes read
We get it. It's been a rough year for everyone due to high inflation on all fronts. Your bills are higher, food costs are exorbitant, and you still need to hire party staff in Los Angeles for your event coming up. Your brain is silently screaming Craigslist, yet deep down in your gut you know you should steer clear, and we couldn't agree more.

Gig sites, job boards, and other methods of sequestering immediate staffing needs have their allures, right? Instant hires of total strangers on the cheap. What could possibly go wrong? E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.

If you want to find out the gory details that can and will occur if you let your budget determine the quality of your staffing for events, then read on!

How You Can Ruin a Party by Hiring Poor Quality Party Staff

There is nothing worse than finding out the day of your event, that the party staff in Los Angeles you hired to provide excellent service to your guests are about to serve up an event catastrophe, instead of your triple-layer tiramisu.

This is the sort of high risk that event party planners have taken many times, by hiring party staff in Los Angeles by simply putting up an ad on a job site, and hiring the first decent-looking candidates that respond.
    So many issues can erupt to list them all, but we will go over the top 3:
    • Stranger Danger
      Who are they? Without a proper background check, you could be hiring party staff in Los Angeles that are less than desirable to be in close proximity with your esteemed guests. By hiring from a gig site, you won't find out until your event day just exactly who you have entrusted your event responsibilities with.
    • Fiction Writer by Day
      Their resume could just be a creatively crafted piece of fiction writing that even J.K. Rowling would be impressed by. Did you verify their personal and professional references? Do you have the means or time to verify their work experience? This is an important step that many people just don't pursue when they hire staff, and they instead hire based on how the resume appears.
    • Never Worked Events
      You need to make sure that the person you are hiring to work your event, has actually worked events in the past. Event staffing in LA is a completely different ball game from traditional hospitality jobs in restaurants, hotels, and bars. Your staff needs to have professional work experience specifically in this genre for them to be successful party helpers for your event.

    What an Agency Guarantees You When Hiring Party Staff

    An agency eliminates all of the guesswork and stress when it comes to hiring party servers in Los Angeles. They perform extensive background and employment verifications to guarantee that the staff they bring on board to be a part of their agency and to supply as party staff in Los Angeles, are skilled, trustworthy, and experienced candidates.

    Beyond this, if your staff encounters a last-minute emergency, or if you need to bulk up your staff to match your sudden increase in guest count, you can count on a professional agency to be able to handle those emergency staffing requests effortlessly and with great care.
