LINDA MOORE Asks: Should You Hire Greeters?

Posted on April 15, 2009 by LCT Magazine

MEET AND GREET STAFF: Do you get asked to provide airport meet and greet staff? When I worked in Florida, it wasnt that hard to find people to greet clients. Some were better than others and most were seniors looking to fill their days. Now that I am up north, I rarely see anyone doing greets. What do you pay your greet staff? The market in Florida dictated $15 per hour and up for greeters and more for coordinators. What do you charge your clients? I have heard that some companies charge as much as $50 per hour back to their clients. I have always found that having greet staff can save you if things start backing up. I am confused though why a company would want to gouge their clients to fund greeters, especially now that groups are smaller and less frequent.
