What does a Coat Check Attendant do?
The Coat Check Attendant’s overall responsibility is to maintain and secure the coat check area during an event. The coat check process typically begins with collection of guests' coat, hat or accessories they enter a business or event. Typically, the patron is given a numbered ticket to use for retrieval. The checker then places the items in a hanger or in a specific locker assigned to that guest. When the guest returns with his ticket or to pick up items, the attendant retrieves them and returns them to him. This role provides your guests a safe and secure location to store their outerwear and belongings, giving them hassle-free peace of mind to enjoy your event. It also cuts down on trip-and-fall hazards associated with having belongings draped over chairs and left on the floor.
A few notes we ask our Coat Check Attendants to keep in mind:
How many Coat Check Attendants are needed for an event?
We typically suggest 1 Attendant per 75 guests - which of course changes throughout the year - but during this chilly New York City holiday season, our guess is that most guests and hosts alike will enjoy this event staffing option!
