GKS Team Agreement

Requirements for Teammates - Our Team Agreement

In order to participate as a teammate at the Growing Kids Sale, you must agree to the following guidelines in this agreement. Please understand that these guidelines have been created in an effort to maintain a high quality sale that meets the needs of our community.

  • To be eligible to choose a shift and shop Team Night, teammates must participate as a consignor (selling 15 items or more).
  • Teammates must be age 16 or older.
  • Teammates may NOT bring children under the age of 12 with them to volunteer shifts. However, have a nursing baby that you can’t leave at home? We want you to be able to participate too! For safety reasons, we can only allow volunteers to bring children/babies that can be “worn” in an infant carrier during their entire shift, and only to one of our designated “Baby-Wearing Shifts” (see schedule online). If all those shifts are full, please contact us directly and we’ll see if we can work something out for you!
    PLEASE NOTE: If teammates bring children to any non-baby-wearing shift, we will have no choice but to ask that they make arrangements for their child to be picked up within 30 minutes in order to receive volunteer credit for that shift, or else they will need to re-schedule to a different shift when they can come without children. Children ages 12 and older may be brought to any shift, as long as they stay with their parent at all times.
  • If, after choosing a shift, a teammate realizes they can no longer consign, they must un-register as a consignor & teammate on the GKS website before the deadline, which falls on the evening before the first sale shift begins. The deadline for the upcoming sale is Wednesday, February 28th at 10pm.
  • Growing Kids needs every assigned teammate in order to run the sale smoothly and efficiently. In an effort to ensure the quality of the sale by retaining a sufficient number of teammates, Growing Kids requires that teammates fulfill their assigned 4-hour shift. If a teammate does not cancel their shift before the deadline has passed, they are obligated to fulfill their shift or choose one of the options below.
    1. Send a suitable replacement on their behalf. If the substitute fulfills the shift, the teammate will still receive their full earnings percentage and will not receive any penalties toward choosing a shift at future events.
    2. Call the GKS Staff to switch to a different, available shift. Shift availability may be limited. If a teammate calls GKS Staff, reschedules to an available shift and fulfills that entire shift, they will receive their full earnings percentage and will not receive any penalties toward joining the team at future events.
  • Our team positions are very popular and very sought-after. By choosing a shift, you are holding a valuable spot & opportunity. For this reason, in the event a teammate does not fulfill that shift they've held, or send a suitable replacement, Growing Kids will deduct a 30% penalty from the teammate's earnings check, and they will be placed on a Prohibited Teammate List.
  • Consignors who have not fulfilled a shift in the past and were placed on the Prohibited Teammate List may be reinstated as a potential teammate by paying a $30 cash deposit. Once the deposit is paid, the consignor will be cleared from their prohibited status and be allowed to sign-up for a shift at the upcoming sale. Once they fulfill that shift, the $30 will be fully refunded. If that shift is not fulfilled at that upcoming sale, the $30 is forfeited and the consignor will be placed on the Prohibited List again. This deposit helps us verify that the consignor is dependable and trustworthy to hold a valuable team position again. Contact Kim@GrowingKidsSale.com if you wish to do this.
  • Teammates understand that they are choosing to exchange their 4-hour shift time helping at the Growing Kids Sale solely for the privilege of shopping during the designated Team Night.
  • Teammates must be on time and fulfill their entire shift in order to reap the benefits of joining Team GKS.
