A football stadium in the San Francisco Bay Area was preparing for the upcoming season and needed to hire 100 part-time food & beverage employees. Instead of spending valuable time sourcing and hiring the part-time staff themselves, the stadium’s leadership team sought a partner that would handle the recruitment and hiring process from start to finish. The Service Companies was selected to provide food & beverage staffing services due to its experience in sourcing, hiring, and onboarding large numbers of compliant staff at short notice as well as assuming employees’ liability and risk.
Source, hire, and onboard 100 concessionaires, cashiers, barbacks, bartenders, cooks, and dishwashers with up to 5 days notice
Run background checks and E-Verify each employee, even when not mandated by law
Assume the risk and liability for this employee contingent
Stadium Staffing Solution
Our stadium staffing strategy leveraged the company’s best-in-class food & beverage staffing recruiting team and its robust database of 64,000+ vetted food & beverage employees. We sourced new staff using online job sites, hiring events, employee referrals, and networking. We interviewed candidates and conducted background checks and E-Verify, ensuring each employee we provided was compliant. Additionally, we trained, onboarded, and conducted orientation for each employee.
To further support our client, we hired a Stadium Operations Manager, whose sole responsibility was to provide extra oversight and help with football game day logistics.
The Service Companies is the premier staffing service provider to the sports and entertainment, hospitality, gaming, education, and commercial industries. Utilizing exclusively legal, compliant labor, we also deliver best-in-class cleaning and managed labor services. We have the resources to fully support stadiums and arenas and their staffing needs, no matter how quickly or how large.
In rural North Carolina, a luxury casino resort was preparing to open a new VIP tower with 750 guest rooms. The property’s executive team sought a partner that could manage the casino’s housekeeping function while providing a solution that would ensure a fully staffed department of 140 compliant associates. The Service Companies was selected due to its experience managing housekeeping departments at casino resorts and recruiting in hard-to-staff locations.
For this casino property (in an area with only 4,000 full-time residents), the only way to succeed was to develop a non-traditional recruiting strategy. We developed a multi-pronged recruiting strategy that included a relocation program from markets with higher-than-average unemployment, an H2B visa program, a transportation and housing program, and a competitive compensation package. This yielded the following results:
At The Service Companies, we understand the unique complexities of casino hotel operations and ensure they run smoothly at all hours of the day. It requires a partner that works with the property’s management and senior leadership team to adopt the property’s brand standards and to deliver strong cleanliness scores and a superior guest experience, improve profitability, and save valuable resources managing relationships.
With our fully-managed casino cleaning services, we take full responsibility for the housekeeping, cleaning, staffing, and preventive maintenance needs of our casino clients, including various casino cleaning services:
We oversee the departments’ recruiting needs and compliance checks (background and E-Verify, even where not mandated by law). We manage the departments with a focus on efficiency and metrics, which we accomplish with our training, Quality Management Program, and Quality Assurance Program.
At The Service Companies, we can do everything from floating multi-million dollar payroll to recruiting out-of-market employees for casino housekeeping, stewarding services, and much more. We have all of the resources to fully support casino and gaming operations, and we are well-capitalized to be a strategic partner.
With 2022 in the rear-view mirror, we are looking back on all the accomplishments The Service Companies’ team celebrated and achieved.
We expanded into 3 new states: Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Kentucky.
We cleaned 2.9 million hotel and casino guestrooms.
We cleaned 75 kitchensevery day.
We staffed 3,155,000 hours between our staffing and managed services cleaning teams.
At The Service Companies, we push boundaries to provide 600+ casino, hotel, resort, stadium/arena, university, and commercial clients leading-edge services with exceptional attention to detail. In 2023, we will continue to be a strategic partner, expand our services to new markets, keep our clients’ facilities clean, solve staffing challenges, and more, for all of our clients.

With travel’s swift rebound, many casinos, hotels and resorts have been unable to staff their departments at the rate needed to provide a high quality, consistent service to their guests. Property leadership is turning rooms or rooms are left empty. Sound familiar?
If you’re looking at solutions that will enable you to focus on your core business and revenue growth, you may be considering a fully managed or supplemental staffing solution. With benefits to each, here are some key considerations to keep in mind when deciding which solution is right for your property.
Complete responsibility for your department (recruiting, training, performance) is transferred to your vendor partner
Opportunity to concentrate on your core business (occupancy, room rates, guest satisfaction scores, group bookings, etc.)
Ability to lean on your partner’s expertise to implement best practices and innovations
Supplemental Staffing Benefits
Ideal for properties looking to retain control of its departments, including recruiting, training and performance tracking
You and your team maintain oversight of specific standards, operating procedures
Ideal for properties and/or departments looking to fill positions on a short-term basis
For many properties, supplemental staffing may seem like the ideal choice, but in our experience, selecting a turn-key option yields better and more consistent results. Your departments are better staffed and typically have a higher employee retention rate, resulting in a higher guest service scores, lower costs, and a more engaged team.
The Service Companies has over 30 years of experience providing both turn-key and supplementary staffing solutions to the hospitality industry, serving some of the most recognizable and largest casino, hotel and resort properties in the country.
