What can you expect during a Crew shift?
This shift is for you if you like to organize sale items, help check in consignors and inspect items, help bring items in from their cars and get our sale floor ready for the big sale!
This shift is for you if you’re a “people person”! You may be assisting cashiers by “de-tagging” items at the register, assisting shoppers at our hold bay, straighten racks and return items to sales floor, assist shoppers on an as needed basis, assisting with security at the front door checking all bags and strollers as they leave.
This shift is for you if you like to sort and organize and want hangers for our next sale! You will be helping us sort our unsold items into consignor pick up piles and pack up and prepare our donated items for charities.
Please note that Crew Member spaces will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. There will be a cap on the number of Crew Members needed in each sale, we will make every effort to find a shift for anyone who wants to Crew Members and take advantage of our Crew Members benefits. Multiple shifts do not need to be consecutive.
We understand that things can happen at the last minute so if you find it necessary to cancel or reschedule your shift we ask that you call to let us know as soon as possible. Volunteers who do not notify us of a cancellation will not be allowed to register as a volunteer for the next season’s sale. Please understand that these guidelines have been put in to place to maintain a high quality sale.
Children & Crew Shifts
For their own safety, children are not allowed during Crew shifts. It is a very busy time and it is too difficult to watch out for little ones while we are preparing for the sale.
Drop-Offs & Appointments
We ask that Crew Members not schedule a drop off appointment during their shift. Crew Members may schedule appointments either before or after their shift(s), if all appointments are full please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
