Browse available Front Desk Jobs. A front desk at any corporate office, hotel or any other similar institution is an area where a visitor to that institution first arrives. Any personnel or staff there receives this visitor and helps out with any queries which he/she may have. Also, in the case of specific information that can only be derived from a higher authority, the staff at the front desk contacts the relevant person in the hierarchy and guides the visitor to that person accordingly. A front office staff is the first person that any outsider or a potential client meets, hence, his/her presentation and behavior may ultimately go on to decide the company’s revenue making process.
With companies and corporate institutions focussing more on customer satisfaction and hospitality, almost every sector is giving prominence to front desk jobs and personnel training. Hospitals, business areas, sports industry, hotels and even restaurants, front end working staffs are required everywhere. Customer service and interaction come as an integral part of a front end job. A staff may have to greet and assist any visitor initially and put in contact with any other relevant person in the company. Maintaining a guest register along with asking for visitor details and making a note of the same in the company’s database may also be a part of a front end staff’s work profile.
Any visitor to any company will first approach a front desk staff with their query or seek an appointment. A staff will then have to address his/her questions or put him through to contact any other relevant person in the company. The primary role of such a staff is to greet this new-comer and interact with him/her courteously. Basic computer skills are also required as most companies now prefer maintaining their visitor register on their computer database. This has to be done by a front desk personal. Providing a visitor card after verifying the person’s legal ID proofs also comes under this job description. Receiving telephonic calls or accepting a parcel and mail addressed to any particular department in the company are all responsibilities of front desk staff.
Front desk staffs have the following duties to perform:
The typical requirements for securing a front desk job are:
A high school degree qualifies a person to secure this job. However, to stay ahead of the competition, one may opt for joining foreign language and hospitality management classes. Candidates with previous experience as part-timers in retail stores are also preferred at times. A basic vocational training on computer database management may also come in handy. An on-job training and grooming session will definitely be carried out by the recruiting company, so learning and retention skills of a candidate may also be tested.
The annual salary of a front desk staff typically starts from around $18,440. The figure may increase based on the recruiting institutions and added responsibility. The maximum mark may reach almost up to $36,000.
