Hire Busboys

 

Hiring a responsible and energetic busboy lays the foundation for a restaurant’s daily operations. Finding a busboy begins with drafting an enticing and compelling job description that catches the eye of entry level job seekers. Hiring managers should be clear, concise, and detailed. Are you looking for candidates who live near the restaurant? What are the scheduling requirements? Is prior restaurant experience required or simply an advantage? Carefully outline the position's responsibilities as well as requirements. Do not forget to include details to highlight the unique culture and personality of your restaurant. What is the restaurant known for? Does it specialize in a particular cuisine? These details will help candidates picture themselves working in your restaurant. 

Busboys are also alternatively referred to as “bussers.” It may help if the job description also includes this term to widen the selection pool and appear in the search results of online hiring platforms. 

Aside from general job boards, it is prudent for hiring managers to post job announcements on industry-specific job boards, online groups, and community forums as well. Getting referrals from the restaurant employees themselves is also a good way to source candidates. Your staff may already know someone who would be a great fit, so let them know you’re hiring!

 

Bus Boy Responsibilities

 

A busboy is an entry-level member of a restaurant whose main responsibility is to support the wait staff to create a positive dining experience for customers. Also commonly known as a busser, a busboy generally ensures that tables are clean and ready for guests. Cleaning tables, removing dishes, and carrying them to the dishwashing area to be cleaned are the primary tasks. Restocking utensils, napkins, glasses, and other dining materials are also part of the job. During busy times, a busboy may be asked to assist in other areas of the restaurant such as washing dishes and alerting servers of any customer concerns. Lastly, busboys also should greet customers and try to answer questions themselves.

 

Bus Boy Skills and Qualifications

 

The ideal candidate for a busboy is someone who works well in a fast-paced restaurant environment, maintaining  a calm and friendly attitude at all times. 

 

Restaurants may require a high school diploma or GED, or look for certifications in food safety training on candidate’s resumes. Prior busboy experience is an advantage, but most restaurants are willing to train their staff for this role. 

 

The candidate should be able to meet the physical demands of the job, and be able to stand for long periods of time and carry heavy trays and bins. Lastly, the ideal candidate should be available to work in shifts, on weekends, and on holidays. 

A busboy serves as an extra set of hands for a restaurant. To help restaurants run smoothly, a busboy is an excellent addition to the team.
