kids (before 3pm), faster checkout lines, and private shopping with
your PIO friends! Best chance to get the best deals on whatever you're

help with all kinds of things from inspecting and organizing incoming
items to helping customers find what they're looking for during the
sale. The bigger each sale gets, the more determined we are to produce
a top quality event.

Benefits of Joining our Team
who also volunteer at the sale earn a higher percentage of their sales
by performing certain tasks during the sale. We break the jobs down
by time and type of job so you can choose what you will be doing for
is a maximum number of 3 shifts any consignor may sign up for online.
If you would like to work more, you must be approved to join our Team
and will be asked to fulfill specific sale needs as your 4th and 5th
shifts. Sale experience is necessary. In order to work 4 or more shifts
you will join one of our specialty teams (Inspecting, Merchandising,
Cashiering) plus work 1 Sort shift Sunday evening. We ask that those
wanting a 5th shift please be able to work the Wed Presale 1-5pm (after
shopping) in addition to a Sort shift. We will add you to your shifts
on our admin end. If you would like to work more than 3 shifts, please
talk with Jenna or Kim.
to sign up?!
Please log in with your consignor number and password so your shifts
are linked to your consignor account and we can give proper credit.
Pickup your Presale pass when you drop off your items and visit the
Providers: Our Team works really
hard to put on this sale and some of us (mainly Kim) forget to eat
unless someone else is in charge of feeding us. This option is for
those who would like to help the sale effort and shop the Presale
but don't have anything to consign. You can still be a part of our
team in a support way!
1) Bring a complete meal
that feeds 8-10 people with an entree, side dish, and dessert. About
half of our team eats gluten-free, so please be thoughtful.
Look at our Volunteer Schedule and choose a MEAL SHIFT that is OPEN.
(If it says FULL, that spot is taken.) The schedule has windows
of time for when we would like the meal delivered. You may deliver
earlier, if your meal does not need to be hot or if you can provide
a way to keep it hot.
Please have a menu in mind and do not change your mind once
you have listed what you will bring as we don't want the same thing
3 meals in a row. Soup is not a meal. We no longer require that you
include utensils or napkins, but please provide plates or bowls. If
you leave serving dishes or a crock pot, please label with your name
and phone number on masking tape and plan to pick it up 24 hrs later
or during Consignor Pick Up (if your number is on your items they
can go with your pick up pile!). We do have a fridge on site but don't
always have a kitchen so you may be picking up dirty dishes. Or bring
everything in disposable containers that we can recycle, toss, or
use for leftovers.
Provide Snacks or Supplies
(approx $20-25 value). Limit 1 per person. We like to feed our volunteers
(we don't have to feed them, we just like to!). There are also a few
non-food supply items on the list, so you don't have to bring food.
These fill fast.
Look at our Volunteer Schedule and choose a PROVIDE SUPPLIES shift
that is OPEN. (If it says FULL, that item is taken.) Please
deliver your items during our Drop Off days to receive your Presale
Pass. We use these items right away and for the duration of the sale.
What you Get:
A pass to shop our Private Presale on Wed
at 3pm (Snack/Supply) or 1pm
(Meal Providers). This shift is meant for NON-Consignors.
For consignors it will not count towards earning a higher % of your
sales, however any consignor who brings a meal, snack, or supply WILL
get bumped up to the next earlier shopping time. Meal/snack/supply
spots are limited (the sale is only 11 days long) and fill up fast.
The schedule gets filled on a first come first served basis.
notes about job duties:
you willing to do some heavy lifting, building, and using power
tools? Join our Setup & Teardown
crew! We'd love to have the same people at both and appreciate
willingness to stay until the job is done. Men are most appreciated
on these shifts, but some women enjoy it too! Sending
a husband counts as your work shift! Email Kim to sign
up for these hot shifts!
are great workers, too! Send your mom or mother-in-law
to help us if you can't make it, but watch out, they love the
Presale as much as the rest of us and might not babysit while
you go shop the Presale alone! (Of course you and your mom are
welcome to shop the Presale together!)
don't allow children to join moms on their work shifts
with one exception. If you would love to work while wearing your
baby (under 12mos), you may work as a Greeter.
This job can easily be done with a baby on board and we'll work
with nursing/feeding/diaper change breaks. Please contact Kim
to find out which shifts are available so we don't have too many
nursing babies on one shift. There are a limited number of Greeter
spots and we'd like to accommodate all new moms who want to work
allow kids to work who are 15 or older. It is possible
your younger child would be a great asset to our team, but we won't
know until we see him or her in action. We have had younger children
excel at certain jobs, and we have given them shift credit after
working at least one sale as a trial run. If your child will require
constant supervision, don't bring them. If your 15-18 yr old (techinically
qualified to work a shift) would require constant supervision or
doesn't want to be there, don't bring them!
you are unable to stand for long periods, let us know and
we will try assign you a low key job, but honestly there is no job
where you can just sit for 4 hours. We will likely still need you
to stand, walk, and maybe lift or carry things. If you are unable
to lift heavy things, DO NOT sign up for Setup or Teardown shifts!
Contact Kim about other special circumstances or if you have questions
about job duties. We can usually work with special needs.
more note: Inspectors wanted! If you think you have what
it takes to be a PIO Inspector, let us know! Main requirements:
an eye for detail and a desire to help our sale maintain our high
quality reputation. Must attend a training session and be available
to inspect on at least 2 shifts. Contact Kim to join our Inspection
ALL VOLUNTEERS: Please read this file and familiarize yourself with
the descriptions for the job duties you are signed up for or might
likely perform. Be ready to work when you get there.
Half Price Presale Saturday night!
Workers are invited to shop our Team Members' Only Half Price Presale
on Saturday night. (Meal & Snack shifts do not qualify
for Saturday night shopping.)
shopping ends at 5pm. We try to clear shoppers out as soon as possible,
then take 30 minutes to organize the merchandise and allow Team Leads
to begin shopping. We'll reopen the doors at 6pm for this Volunteer
Volunteer Policy — Please READ before signing up for
order to achieve a high quality event, we rely on a sufficient number
of volunteer workers to show up when they are supposed to. Pass It
On requires that volunteers fulfill their obligation to work the shifts
they sign up for. All workers must be on time and work their entire
shift (unless released early by Pass It On sale owner) to reap the
who do not follow through with their commitment will be banned from
volunteering at future sales, which means no shopping at future Worker
Presales. If the worker who fails to show is a consignor, Pass It
On will deduct 10% of their earnings or $30 from their final check
for EACH shift missed. So for 3 shifts missed, you would lose 30%
of your sales or $90. Please don't sign up for more shifts than you
know you can handle.
you find it necessary to cancel a work shift or reschedule your shift,
please do so as soon as possible. You can remove yourself from a work
shift and/or sign up for a new shift by logging in to the Volunteer
Registration system until it goes offline. In the rare event
of an unavoidable family emergency, please contact
Kim as soon as possible at 503-830-6509
to discuss your situation.
you cannot make it to your shift after the system is offline, send
a replacement to avoid being banned and your privileges will stay
intact. Extenuating circumstances may be considered (such as a death
in the family) and the worker may be allowed to volunteer again, but
the deduction still may be taken at the discretion of Pass It On management.
note that this policy has been created in order to maintain a high
quality sale. We want to attract only volunteers who are responsible
and dependable. Please thoughtfully consider the commitment before
you put your name down for a shift. Positions are limited, and you
could be taking up a spot someone else would have gladly filled. When
you cancel at the last minute, we cannot find someone to fill your
vacancy, thus we are short handed and not able to handle traffic and
sales as we need to. Thanks for your consideration.
