We used gigsalad to find servers for our wedding on 09/22/18. The staff from ShortStaf (company) arrived promptly to serve food. We showed them how to portion the food when serving however they still were giving out too much food. Also, after serving, the servers were seen in the kitchen area eating our food and packing it up to go without permission. Then one of the servers (a male) walked up to my mom stating the servers had not been paid for this event. My mom turned to a female server and asked if that was corrrct and she stated, NO, we have been paid. After the wedding was over and my mom shared that with me, I felt some type of way and don't think I would ever use ShortStaf again.
Response from ShortStaf:
Hi Shana! Thank you so much for your honest review, we really appreciate your feedback. We are happy to hear that our staff showed up promptly and sorry to hear about the other discrepancies. I have talked to several of the servers at the event and was made aware of the one that asked your Mom to get paid. That was his first event working with ShortStaf and we are so sorry for his confusion and any stress that caused. The staff is paid directly through our app, after the event is complete. Regarding the food, our staff left all of the food out, per instructions from your mother, who told everyone to please eat. The venue staff (separate from our staff) was seen eating in the back, and ShortStaf left the building before any boxes were out. So, I believe there may have been some confusion. Either way, we aim to provide a stress free and helpful experience to every one of our users and are very sorry that did not happen this time. Please reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
I will definitely recommend for future & I'll more than likely hire them again.
Response from ShortStaf:
Thank you so much Clara! We had an amazing time working your Birthday party!
