Attitude Is Everything

Here at AYS, "Attitude is Everything." From the first interview, to the 100th event of the season, our team takes pride in the idea that how they interact with our clients and their guests is bigger than anything else we ask them to do. Most staffing companies can provide you someone that can carry a tray and pass food, but can every company send you people that truly want to make an impression on your clients and have you remember their name? 

At AYS, we value (and make note of) someone’s attitude with as much importance as we do their skill. During our hiring process and at our orientation, our team takes the time to observe not only what the potential candidates already know how to do but also their desire to learn more about how we do things as a company for our clients. Although we can train someone to do the technical aspects of this position, we cannot train someone to care for others. The preceding is what we feel truly makes the AYS Difference.

We recently asked a few team members what they liked most about working with us. The common thread in each was that they enjoy knowing they can make a difference; that every time they go to a client is a chance to, in the words of Hamilton, "not throw away my shot."  Our team strives to be remembered by our clients for their smiles, their work ethic and, most of all, for making a true mark on our clients’ guests and our clients themselves!

We can't wait to show you how much we care and how attitude has truly helped us make our mark in the service world. Be our guest, be our guest, put our service to the test! To partner with AYS on a future event, contact us here.

How Attitude is Everything in Hospitality

Our Long Island Account Manager, Caitlin Havron, reflects on how attitude is everything in hospitality.

Our motto here at At Your Service Staffing is “Attitude is Everything.”  At Your Service Staffing was built on the concept that you can teach new hires how to set a table, take a dinner order or make a drink, but you cannot teach someone to have a good attitude.  While that concept may be universal across many jobs, it is particularly important when it comes to the hospitality industry.  The word “hospitality,” is defined as “the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers.”  We are in the business of making sure people have a good time.  You cannot do that without having a positive outlook and a friendly disposition.

CEO of Union Square (and AYS hero) Danny Meyer told New York Magazine, “Service is delivering on your promise. Hospitality is making people feel good while you’re delivering on that promise.”  We are not just an exchange of services – it is our mission to make sure our staff are able to provide you with the assistance you need, and they do so with a smile on their faces.  AYS does not provide food, entertainment or linens – we provide people.  We add the human element to each and every event.  The right people are the key to making a guest or client feel welcome, so it is imperative we are providing happy and willing individuals.  We fill all kinds of waiter and bar positions, so it’s vital that our staff are flexible to do a multitude of job descriptions and maintain an upbeat attitude.

Hosting an event, no matter what type of party it is -  a wedding, shower or even a conference - should be a memorable experience for everyone involved.  Let us help you remember your special day by bringing in staff with the “right stuff” – a great attitude!
