What is Shiftgig?
Shiftgig is the easy way to hire your staff. Designed to connect people and places, it is improving the way bars and nightclubs hire talent.
“We’re committed to changing the hiring process through innovation and access,” said Eddie Lou, CEO and co-founder. “For most bars and nightclubs, hiring talent is ongoing and tedious and hiring the wrong staff leads to poor service levels affecting the bottom line. Recruiting needs to change. We live in a connected world in which identifying talent should be easier. Shiftgig is the best tool for improving the bottom line since electronic POS systems.”
Most job sites are simply a hassle to use, too expensive or not focused enough for the service industry. Shiftgig differs because its users want service industry jobs and upload photos, provide past work experience, request work testimonials and link to social media. Available in Chicago and New York, Shiftgig will be rolling out to major cities throughout the United States in the coming months.
Some of the hottest bars, nightclubs, and restaurants in Chicago are already using Shiftgig, including Japonais, Enclave, Chicago Cut, Nellcôte, Market, Roka Akor, Boka, Spiaggia, Benchmark, Stone Lotus, Bull & Bear, Underground and more.
