Work Commitment Info

Worker Shifts–General Info

  • All sellers must volunteer to work one shift during the consignment sale.
  • All sellers wishing to increase their commission from the 65% base must work at least one shift. You have many shift choices to choose from, including “racks” shifts. Each shift has a commission % assigned to it. This allows for greater seller flexibility.
  • You must fulfill your work commitment in order to receive your full commission.
  • You must adhere to the rules and guidelines as set forth in the seller handbook in order to receive your full commission.
  • There is a place to sign up for your shifts on your consignor homepage after you login to My Consignment Manager.
  • Any consignor who does not work their full shift will automatically be docked a percentage of the commission of the unfulfilled shift.
  • A limit on the number of registered workers for each shift will be enforced. The number of workers needed for each shift is at the discretion of the Sale Chairs. Registration slots are pre-determined and openings are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • A Co-parent may be pre-approved to work a shift in lieu of the member to fulfill the shift requirements, however, a member and a Co-parent may NOT work the same shift to reduce the seller’s commission percentage taken from a sale check.
  • All workers must wear the club t-shirt while working. T-shirts may be reserved during the registration process and paid for upon check-in.
  • All workers are required to check-in at the beginning of each shift. An official record for verifying work commitments will be kept. WORKERS WHO ARRIVE EARLY TO SHOP, SHOULD CHECK-IN, on-time, AFTER SHOPPING IS COMPLETED.
     

Set Up & Tear Down CREW (formerly “Committee”) –General Info

  • All those signed up to work Set Up/Tear Down CREW receive the highest commission, as well as the coveted benefit of Thursday night shopping. These workers must work Thursday set-up AND Saturday tear-down AND one full work shift.
  • Working these two FULL set-up and tear down shifts is required to receive FULL benefits.
  • The tear down process begins promptly at 1pm or after the last customer is checked out. ALL Set Up/Tear Down CREW members will be assigned “tear down” tasks.
  • Saturday shift team workers are welcome to stay after their shifts end @ 1 p.m. Teams workers are expected to work with the “CREW” and expedite this process; everyone staying should be working to complete the overall process.
  • Tear down continues until complete…this is usually around 4:00. This time is an estimation, please do not plan to be somewhere Saturday afternoon. Again, in order to receive full Set Up/Tear Down CREW commission benefit the entire shifts must be worked.
