Amazing and so convenient!

I loved this app before, but now with the updates it’s even more user friendly and convenient. I love being able to find work on my own schedule with no hassles. ShortStaf makes the hiring process so easy and I can only imagine it’s the same for the hosts. My experience with hosts have been nothing but pleasurable- Shortstaf does an awesome job monitoring their hosts and hires for the best possible experience on both ends. I have only worked as a staff member until now but based on my experience I think I’m going to have to try hosting an event!!

Convenient, Easy, Helpful

This app is such an excellent idea. Never realized how easy it was to actually be able to enjoy myself at my own party. I just posted my event with my details and the applicants are flowing in. I can see their profiles and qualifications and choose the best Staf member for my Party. My guests were very impressed and I was able to spend time with my family during a party where I would’ve normally been stuck cooking and tending to drinks etc all day. Would recommend to all my friends and will definitely use again!

Best staffing app out there!

I needed servers and bartenders for my husband’s 50tb birthday party. Not only did ShortStaf fulfill this need, they were polite and courteous from beginning to end! I was able to enjoy the party without lifting a finger. Staff were very professional and went above and beyond expectations. I will definitely use this app again and encourage anybody needing help with staffing needs to do the same.
