Volunteers are the life’s blood of Just Like New! Volunteers can work as little as a 4 hour shift and gain the privilege of shopping early at Just Like New. It’s great fun meeting other Moms, Gramas & Gramps, and Dads while volunteering just a small part of your day. It’s also a change of pace for the stay-at-home mom who deserves some time out with other women! Shifts are available setting up racks, receiving and checking in merchandise, help during the public sale, and more! It is really a bunch of fun, so please join our Just Like New Team!

Volunteer Job Descriptions
Although we have specific time slots for specific tasks, sometime we have to shift volunteers from one area to another. If you are not able to fill that task due to some sort of limitation, please let us know.
Set-up – Be prepared for some heavy lifting or volunteer your man to help… volunteers will be unloading the truck, setting up racks, tables, signage and more to get ready for the sale.
Accepting Merchandise – Volunteers will be receiving merchandise. It is your responsibility to view all consigned items and determine if they adhere to Just Like New acceptance policies. Once all items are checked, volunteers will put the items on the sales floor in the appropriate section. Just Like New organizers will be onsite to aid in any questions you may have. (This job requires lifting and quite a bit of foot time, wear comfortable shoes and clothing that is easy to move in.)
Preview Sale Preparation – We make many final adjustments to the sales floor prior to the opening of the preview sales (preview sales are early sales that are by invitation only). Tasks include setting up check-out area, double checking clothing for sizing issues, making sure everything is in its place.
Public Sale – Volunteers will be assisting in checkout, bagging merchandise and assisting shoppers in various needs. Volunteers will also be monitoring the sales floor for items out of place and other issues.
Sorting – This is where we really need your assistance. Sorters are responsible for gathering and preparing each individual consignors merchandise for pick-up.
Pick-Up – Volunteers help escort consignors to their merchandise at the close of the sale. Volunteers will monitor the sales floor to insure no merchandise is pick-ed up mistakenly, and may assist consignors in the removal of their unsold items.
JLN is very flexible in allowing our Team-Members to sign up for, or leave a work shift, right up until the Saturday prior to the show. If you have a conflict with your JLN Volunteer shift, NO WORRIES! You can log in and “UNREGISTER” or change to another shift PRIOR to the JLN “Portal” closing. If you have an emergency at the last minute (after the portal closes) please notify us as time allows.
IMPORTANT: READ BELOW CAREFULLY!!
In an effort to ensure the quality of the sale by retaining a sufficient number of volunteers, Just Like New requires that volunteers fulfill their pledged obligation to work their assigned 4-hour or 8-hour shift. In the event a volunteer does not notify JLN by UNREGISTERING PRIOR TO PORTAL CLOSURE, fulfill their obligation, or find a suitable replacement on their behalf, Just Like New will deduct 30% of the volunteer’s earnings check. Additionally, the volunteer will not be allowed to participate in any future Just Like New Events in ANY capacity to include shopping, consigning, New Moms, or volunteering.
Some extenuating circumstances will be considered (such as a death in the family).
Please understand that these guidelines have been created in an effort to maintain a high quality sale. Volunteers must be on time and fulfill their entire shift in order to reap the benefits and escape the consequences of a “No-Show”.
