HOW TO LIVE the “AT YOUR SERVICE” attitude with Hotelstaff.

Whilst each shift is different, each client has their own expectations, overall, the tips in our article apply ALWAYS.

Time, time, time ….. BE ON TIME! Need we say more!  All Hotelstaff shifts required you to arrive at your location 30 MINUTES PRIOR to your shift to ensure on time performance.

Communication of the nation – communicate! Always communicate with us. Provide us with feedback, tell us about your shift, tell us your availability and let us help you undertake the best opportunities in town.  You can contact us on

Work your shift – please don’t pull out of your shift. If you have accepted your shift, we and our client expect you to be there. When you commit to a shift, it is our expectation that you will be there. Of course, there are emergencies, we get this. Call us on 9650 1311 immediately in the case of an emergency.

Present well – look great, feel great. It is important that you comply with the dress code for the client. If you don’t, quite often you can be sent home. So this one is easy as pie. Wear your appropriate attire, wear it with confidence. Dress to impress!

There is no “I” in team – although you are a casual, you are still part of the team. We work as a flexible, diverse group with new faces and locations and fun each shift. Be part of that team, work closely with your peers, provide feedback and assistance where appropriate and always take pride in your work. This leads to a more satisfying shift, future offers of shifts and happy clients!

Hours – ensure you are compensated for the work you do, everytime ensure your timesheet is signed by your supervisor and emailed through to payroll as soon as you complete your shift –

We love our casual team members, we appreciate you and are always doing our utmost to get you the best shifts across Melbourne to suit you and to ensure our clients businesses run smoothly and everyone is having a good time and taking pride in their work.  If you take note of the above and leave a fabulous impression, the possibilities are endless.

Melbourne is home to many wonderful events, it always has been. Our Summer with hot, sun kissed afternoons and evenings hold us in good stead for tennis, festivals, the cricket, outdoor cinema’s and of course one of the most prestigious world renowned car races, the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The Formula 1 Grand Prix, a motor race held annually in Australia has been held 79 times since it was first run at Phillip Island in 1928. Since the 80’s, the GP has been a round of the FIA Formula One World Championship and is now held at the Albert Park circuit with a backdrop of the lake and palm trees; not too far from Melbourne’s CBD or the beach for that matter!

The circuit is a 16 turn circuit, measuring just over 5km. The drivers race a total of over 307 kilometres (58 laps). The noise, the buzz, the team work and prestige of the race and the days leading up to the race change Melbourne into a hub of excitement and activity. The roulettes flying over our office buildings and back yards, causing everyone to look up and gasp, to the commotion during the set up – Melbournian’s use the track on a daily basis! The ruckus of the practise runs and the hype of the celebrity race.

We love it. Melbourne loves it and we attract punters as well as the elite of motor racing from far and wide who love to eat, drink and spectate, whilst enjoying Melbourne and car racing at its finest.

Hotelstaff are privileged to be part of the crew who assist in staffing this wonderful event and are always looking for:

  • Food and Beverage staff,
  • Bartenders, Hosts
  • Baristas and Chefs

…to be part of this event and use your hospitality skills and work whilst having great time!

If you are interested in working at the Formula 1 Grand Prix from the 17-20 March we want to hear from you on 03 9650 1311 or
