Janus International has extensive experience serving the staffing needs of the hospitality industry. As a U.S. State Department-designated J-1 sponsor agency, we have established a network of overseas partner agencies to offer our clients a specialized solution to meeting the summer, winter and spring seasonal staffing requirement of their hospitality business.
This solution is the J-1 Work and Travel Program visa, which allows international college students to visit and work legally in the U.S. for a period of up to 4 months. Janus International handles all details of international recruitment, interviews, selection and orientation of J-1 participants that are perfect for seasonal hotel, restaurant and theme park jobs.
Through our exclusive focus on hospitality-oriented J-1 applicants, Janus clients report significant increases in staff productivity and customer service levels. This is achieved through our hospitality experience (Janus is managed by former Hotel and Restaurant General Managers) and an extensive J-1 screening and approval process, as well as the enthusiastic interest and motivation of our international college-educated participants to visit and work in the United States during their semester break between school years at their overseas university.
We visit over 30 countries annually and conduct over 25 major international Job Fairs to locate the best candidates that have selected Janus International as their U.S. Sponsor Agency to participate in the U.S. “Work and Travel” visa Program. Our focus is limited to applicants that meet or exceed the English fluency, experience, skills, presentation and positive attitude standards that are required by the hospitality industry.

Our J-1 Program clients are reporting significant increases in productivity and customer service levels. This is achieved through our rigorous staff selection process and our focus only on employers in the hospitality industry.
Janus International visits 15+ countries annually, and conducts orientation sessions and one-on-one interviews with college students who have applied to participate in the U.S. Government approved "Work and Travel Program". We select only those applicants that meet or exceed the English fluency, skill levels, experience, presentation and positive attitude standards that are requirements of the hospitality industry.
All staff hired for your property will be individually interviewed (by us or by your representative), and fully screened by our recruiting staff to meet the specific requirements of each hotel, restaurant or theme park job you have available. We ensure that all selected applicants submit the necessary application and documents we need to either approve or reject their application. For those that are approved for sponsorship by Janus, we arrange the proper visa and (DS-2019) work permit documentation that is necessary for them to participate in this program.
Upon arrival at your worksite and after their initial first few weeks of employment, if you determine that their work quality, reliability or other job requirements do not meet the job performance standards of your business, you are not obligated to retain any employee that is unacceptable to you.
Emergency assistance and toll-free access to our J-1 Program Support Services are always available to you as part of our ongoing support. This service can provide support in resolving individual J-1 participant issues, translation assistance and corrective consultations directly with any Janus-sponsored J-1 participant. We may also be able to assist with last-minute staffing increases, subject to participant availability.
Our Toll-Free number, 866-249-3888 is available Monday-Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm, and after hours for any emergencies.
Simply contact us by calling our toll-free number 1-866-249-3888. We will answer any questions and send you a packet of information that will include the Employer Profile information we need, as well as our Staffing Request Form. At your convenience, we can also visit your property and provide a full presentation of the details regarding the J-1 Work and Travel Program for you and/or your management staff.
Note: Please contact us 4 - 6 months prior to your staffing needs to allow us adequate recruitment time,
and so that J-1 participants can be properly screened exclusively for the qualifications and staffing requirements of your business.
