to sign up?!
Volunteer Schedule and Registration for shifts will be posted and
begin on or around August 22.
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 wristband when you drop off your sale items. If you are
not selling this time, you can still use your consignor number login.
At the log in screen, choose the option towards the bottom to sign
up as a Worker. There you will set up a Worker Account and password.
This is your log in. If you ever become a consignor, use that login
instead so shifts are linked to your consignor account and easily

notes about job duties:
you willing to do some heavy lifting, carrying, 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!
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 babies to join moms on their work shifts
with one exception. If you would love to work while wearing your
child 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 breaks. Please contact Kim
to find out which shifts are available so we don't have too many
nursing babies on one shift. This goes for other workers too,
if your caregiver brings your baby, let us know you will be taking
a nursing break so we can provide back up for your job if necessary.
There are a limited number of Greeter spots and we'd like to accommodate
all new moms who want to work with us.
you are unable to stand for long periods, let us know and
we will assign you a sitting job. If you are unable to lift heavy
things, there are plenty of jobs you can handle during the sale,
just please do not sign up for Setup or Teardown shifts! Email Kim
about other special circumstances or if you have questions about
types of jobs.
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 accept only quality
items. Must attend a training session and be available to inspect
on at least 2 shifts. Contact
Kim to join our Inspection Team, especially in Eugene!
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.

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
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's offline. If an emergency arises
and you need to cancel your commitment with us, please let us know
as soon as possible. Call 503–830–6509 ASAP.
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 from their final check for EACH
shift missed. So for 3 shifts missed, you would lose 30% of your sales.
Please don't sign up for more shifts than you know you can handle.
you send a replacement, 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 those 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.
