First impressions mean a lot. For many gig workers, making a good first impression means wearing the right uniform. In most cases, Shiftgig clients expect workers to arrive in the appropriate uniform ready to work. To help you find the right uniforms, we rounded up links to affordable pieces commonly required for Specialists finding work through Shiftgig.
COMMON UNIFORMS FOR SERVERS, BARTENDERS AND OTHER FRONT OF HOUSE STAFF
Front of house employees — or staff that interacts with customers — generally wear button ups, black pants (no denim or stretchy material), aprons and ties. Clients are required to input uniform requirements so you’ll find these details in your app, and must confirm you have all required pieces before claiming a shift.
COMMON UNIFORMS FOR KITCHEN STAFF
The standard uniform for working as a cook is a chef coat and pants. Because you’re working in the kitchen, there is more flexibility with color and style.
SHOES AND EXTRAS
Having non-slip shoes when working in foodservice/hospitality is required by clients and integral to your safety. Along with those, we’ve included some extra pieces you may want to pick up when putting together your uniform.

If you’re ever unclear about uniform requirements, it’s best to ask questions before your shift starts. Clients are always impressed when Specialists arrive in clean and ironed uniforms — and it’s a good way to bump up your chances of becoming an All Star.
