Why Capitol Concierge?

A legacy of service

From a technology company in California, to a luxury mixed-use building in Washington, DC, to an oil and gas company in Texas, some of the nation’s most prestigious properties and companies turn to us WHEN SERVICE MATTERS.

A professional concierge helps you make a positive first impression that your visitors won’t forget—and our concierges are game-changers. When visitors walk in with questions, they have the answer. When residents need immediate help in their apartment complex, these tenants have someone there with them every step of the way. When property owners want to impress their new tenants, they reassure them that their new property is staffed by not just any concierge—a Capitol Concierge.

Enhance your property, give your building a competitive edge and increase its marketability. Capitol Concierge handles all of the concierge and front desk staffing issues so clients can be confident their lobbies are in good hands. In buildings with extended service hours, Capitol will take the 3 a.m. phone calls.

We all know time is of the essence, because it’s the one thing in this world you can’t get back. Our professional concierges create an exceptional service experience for our busy clients by taking on time-consuming tasks. For corporations, our concierge service fulfills everything on the personal to-do list and more, from researching vacations to other employee requests. Let us focus on organizing your employees’ lives so that your employees can focus on their work.

Not all of our professional concierge services are tangible. While it may be hard to measure the benefit of a warm welcome and a bright smile, reduced stress and peace of mind are invaluable in today’s hectic world.

Here’s the thing—We’re not your typical concierge service

We provide millions of people with outstanding service, and we’ve been doing so for a long time—more than 30 years, to be exact—and with that comes the benefit of experience and the knowledge of how to be the best in the industry. We anticipate every detail of your request. We go the extra mile. We do whatever it takes to deliver unparalleled service that makes your life more convenient, fulfilling and fun. And we do it all with a smile.

We know talent when we see it

Our employees are what sets us apart. That’s why we make sure to bring in the most qualified candidates through comprehensive pre-employment screenings.

Our dynamic and continuous recruiting process begins with meetings between Account Managers and our Corporate Recruiter, where they discuss, identify and evaluate specific hiring needs for each client. From there, the interview process is extensive, and includes the following:

  • Preliminary screening of applicants
  • Three online tests, including:
    • Office grammar and spelling: Can you draft a well-written, company-wide email?
    • Microsoft Word 2010: Do you know how to effectively use industry standard tools?
    • 30-minute timed writing sample: Can you send important notices in a short period of time?
  • Interviews with Capitol Concierge Recruiters
  • Second interview with corporate management such as Account Managers and the Vice President
  • Drug and background testing
  • Concierge Service Academy exams

We provide added support for our employees even after the interview process is complete—during their first 90 days, we meet with employees consistently to review and provide feedback on their performance. This review is the first of many to ensure employees uphold the highest level of service on a consistent basis.

Keeping the same friendly face that clients know and love in your building is important. Our retention rate is consistently high with an average fulltime employee turnover rate of less than 10 percent. Once hired, our employees tend to stay—some of our concierges have been with the company for 20 years and counting!
