We believe our clients have a right to know how much their staff should cost. We reveal the true costs behind all of our Pattern Pros - from training to labour to tax —then offer them to you, minus the traditional staffing agency markup.
Pattern gives us affordable, market prices for all our staff plus all the peace of mind that we needed when it comes to reliability and quality
How we calculate labor costs
1. We evaluate your event details
We include the time of week, time of day, location of event, and position type to calculated the accurate hourly rates for labor.
2. Account for time of request
The more notice you give us for your needs, the more affordable the price.
3. Fine tune based on market trends
We've filled thousands of catering shifts, giving us a deep understanding of local trends.
Transparent pricing, no hidden fees.
1. Booking Fee
The booking fee enables us to give you a stress-free experience and expert support. This fee is $15.00 per shift.
We multiply the hours of your shift by the hourly wage to give you a final price.
3. Hourly Wage
This is the rate you pay that guarantees quality and reliable staff. The average starting wage is $17.80.
What your booking fee covers

The Pattern Promise
Our goal is to give you fair and accurate pricing, and we're always looking for ways to pass savings back to you. We have a guarantee in place where if you are not satisfied, we refund you 100% of all costs. No questions asked, at your discretion. This seems too good to be true — what's the catch?
Unlike traditional staffing agencies that focus on many industries and take the majority of their staff's earnings at your expense, we use recent, comparable prices based on the true supply and demand of the labour market to come to a hourly rate that both you can afford and staff will work for.
