Notes for GKS Teammates

We are extremely grateful for all our teammates at each sale! We know that you are incredibly valuable to the success of the sale and we are always so thankful for the quality of help our teammates provide.

If you are considering signing up to help at a sale, or if you are already signed up, here are a few tips and suggestions that you might find helpful.

  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You may be standing for a majority of your shift and we want you to be comfortable!

  • We provide light snacks for teammates during their shift - usually water, soft drinks, candy bars, cookies and crackers. Please plan your regular meals outside of your shift.

  • The tasks assigned to teammates during their shift are dependent on the needs of that particular shift. We will always give complete and detailed instructions to teammates so that they will be comfortable with the tasks assigned to them.

    • Drop off day teammates usually help us inspect and place items on the sales floor as they come in.

    • Shopping day teammates will help us keep the sales floor picked up, organize and bag items at checkout and other miscellaneous tasks.

    • Re-sort teammates help us re-sort the items that didn't sell so that they are ready for consignors to pick up.

  • Teammates must sign-in as they arrive for their shift. With so many teammates helping us now, we need your signature to verify that you were there for your shift. There is a Team GKS sign-in sheet located at the sign-in table just in front of you as you enter the building.

  • After you sign-in, please get a name tag and apron to wear during your shift. This helps shoppers and others know who is a teammate.

  • We recommend that teammates keep their keys and cell phones in their apron pocket, and have all other personal belongings hidden and locked in their cars. However, there is a room where you will find the snacks and cold drinks provided for you, and you are free to place any personal belongings there.

  • Teammates should not bring their young children with them to their shift. Occasional exceptions have been made for nursing infants, but the appeal must be made and approved by the Growing Kids Staff before signing up for a shift.

  • Our goal is to make your work experience enjoyable and pleasant. We try to have fun while we are at the sale! We look forward to having you join us!
