Becoming a Team Member:
Team Members keep everything running smoothly and are a vital resource. The sale cannot happen without you, the team members!
Here is some necessary information on becoming a Team Member:
Consignors, enter your consignor number and password to log in (website).
First-time Team Members, use the link under the login to register and set up your account on the website. If you are consigning and becoming a Team Member for the first time, register as a consignor before signing up for shifts. Becoming a Team Member is not required but highly recommended.
Who can become a Team Member?
Anyone! You do not need to be a consignor to be a Team Member. Helping is easy, fun, and we need help doing many different tasks every day.
There are shifts during the eight days of the sale week, including the weekend. Whatever your schedule, we likely have a shift for you! If you can't show up for a shift, we welcome spouses, moms, dads, and grandparents to come to your place so you can still enjoy our pre-sale!
Why become a Team Member?
Get a break from the kids and the everyday schedule *ADULT TIME!!*-
Meet other parents from the area, and create new friendships!
Shop before the public sale. You get to shop early! You can help keep the floor organized, so it's easier for customers to shop. If you consign, this will help your items sell!
What does a Team Member do?
Team Members are asked to give at least 3 hours of their time helping in many areas of the sale, ranging from:
Helping with Set-up (requires some heavy lifting and setting up of tables and racks)
Help with checking in items and assisting consignors by placing their inventory on the proper racks and tables.
Checking the quality of items for stains, wear, tear, etc.
Help sanitize items according to the law using materials and gear provided by the Sale For Kids-Monitoring Salesfloor and maintaining the organization of things.
Provide excellent customer service during the sale.
Help at the checkout by removing the item's tag and counting things for the cashier.
Help carry items to the customers' cars (runner).
Breakdown on Sunday, help sort items back to consignor number, break down tables and racks, help pack up donates.
Help maintain a safe environment.
Security monitor: monitor doors, check for receipts, monitor shoppers and fellow workers
**Set-up on Monday, April 18th, 2022, the breakdown on Sunday, April 24th, 2022 (we need the most help on Monday and Sunday) for setting up and tearing down.
All days will include standing on your feet and walking for the majority of the day.
If you have any physical issues that make these activities difficult for you, we have a few shifts that can be done while seated.
Don't hesitate to contact me for more information at email@example.com.
What do I wear?
Dress for the weather (the buildings have no heat or AC, dress for comfort)
When signing in, pick up a volunteer name tag worn during shift.
Wear comfortable shoes!
Team Member, Shopping Times
Please read this updated Team Member Shopping Schedule (chart at the top of the page).
Team Members are needed during all public sale times. Please consider helping us at these times! The number of hours you can help will determine what time you get to shop the Presale.
Please do not schedule overlapping shifts as this makes us short on help.

Please honor your word and show up for the shift you sign up for.
Team Member Pre-Sale Pass for Wednesday will admit ONLY the person working. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Refrain from using your cell phone during volunteer times
Please allow time for item drop-off before or after your shift on Monday or Tuesday. We expect the shift you sign up for to be assisting consignors who are dropping off or helping to organize, not to be spent putting your items out.
Dropping off your items during your work shift is unfair to other team members. Please plan accordingly.
Please understand that we need workers every day at Westmoreland Sale for Kids, and you are helping as an independent contractor and, by doing so, agree to the above incentives.
Please arrive 5 minutes before shift to sign in and verify your responsibilities.
Be sure to sign in and out for every shift to receive the correct percentage. Also, signing in and out is required for the business' insurance!
To be fair to shoppers and other Team Members helping, we ask that you not shop or pull items from the sales floor during your shift.
Team Member early shopping passes will NOT be mailed out. I will verify your name on my Team Member roster and will need to check in at the table outside of building number one before your shopping time on Wednesday, April 20th, 2022.
Every work shift is crucial to the sale's success, and we appreciate all who work with us.
1 shift = 3 hour
Pre-sale passes will be for the person working the hours and verified on Team Member worksheets.
Team Members may not participate if they or a household member are experiencing Covid symptoms. Please communicate with Westmoreland Sale for Kids /Lisa if you/family member has been tested for Covid. If test results are negative and cleared for work, you may resume your shift at Westmoreland Sale for Kids participation.
All CDC & DOH guidelines will be followed for your safety, including wearing masks or cloth face coverings.
You are a significant part of why our consignment sale works.
