Having a big—or small—party? You can scramble to get everything ready yourself, and spend the event making sure your guests have a drink in hand and great food to eat, before ending the night spending hours cleaning up. Or, you could hire QuadJobbers near you to give a helping hand. They’ll run for ice, they’ll stock up on drinks at Costco, they’ll stick the tiki torches around the yard, they’ll chop up veggies and cheese and put out food, they’ll serve drinks, and perhaps best of all, they’ll clean up. You’ll actually get to enjoy and have fun with your guests. What an idea!
Here are some tips for managing your team.
- Set a uniform. Feel free to ask your QuadJobber to show up wearing something basic, like all black or a white shirt and jeans. (Or best of all…a QuadJobs tee!)
- Make a list of tasks and write a schedule for the event. Jotting down a few things you want your QuadJobber to tackle will allow him/ her to take off and get a bunch done—vs. having to ask you after each task for the next.
- If you’ve hired multiple QuadJobbers, designate one as a point person. The rest of the team reports directly to him/her, and you won’t be interrupted with small questions throughout the evening.
- QuadJobbers are friendly and professional! You may want them greeting your guests with a special drink, or helping serve food. They’re also great for keeping an eye on kids, if it’s a family party and the little ones will be running around.
Regardless of how much running around you’ve done, remember to spend the last 30 minutes before your guests arrive relaxing a little. Have a drink, turn down the lights, turn up the music…and let your QuadJobbers handle the rest.
