Good valets should be courteous and fast on their feet, and have good communication and customer service skills. They must be able to speak English clearly, and the ability to speak a second language may be beneficial, but is not necessary. They must be able to work independently with minimal supervision as well as in a team environment, and should be physically fit in order to stand for long periods of time. Some may also help guests with loading and unloading luggage or provide information about local events or directions to hotel facilities.
Valets typically wear uniforms and must ensure that they are clean and wrinkle-free at all times. They must be flexible, as they are often required to work evenings, weekends and holidays. Of course, they themselves should have a valid driver’s license, and some employers also require clean DMV records and passing of background and drug tests. Valets must always follow their employer's procedures, policies, and guidelines, and some may also be required to attend training classes or train new valets. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
