In Store Opportunities
Book Lover/Book Section Assistant
Our book section is growing! We’re looking for folks to sort donated books, learn our pricing system, keep the section organized, and separate the jewels from the junk.
Website Content Specialist/ReStore Reporter
Do you have a knack for writing short, catchy articles? Write short (500 words or less) articles to be posted on the ReStore website! Topics will be ReStore-related, from how-to articles to profiles of our special events. We will have some story suggestions for you, but you can also come up with your own ideas! This volunteer position can largely be accomplished from your home computer, with an occasional need to come in for research and interviews.
Internet Sales Assistant
The ReStore is at the beginning stages of an online sales initiative in order to help Habitat build more homes each year! If you have good writing skills and are comfortable with basic internet research and using a digital camera, we can use your help! The job is largely creating descriptions of special items to post on internet marketplaces such as Craig’s List.
Retail Staff Assistant
With donations coming in daily, the backroom can get pretty full. This volunteer role helps sort, clean, and prepare donated items to be priced. After the staff prices them, we take them out to the sales floor. You never know what’s coming in, and you’ll be the first to see the incredible stuff that people donate – from basic couches and sinks to jet skis and church pews! Join our dynamic, energetic team to help keep the ReStore running smoothly! Work with the managers, staff, and other volunteers to manager one or more sections of the store, keep donations moving through our stock room, get donated items priced and ready to hit the floor, keep store sections stocked and tidy, or assist with customer service by serving as a resource to shoppers on the sales floor.
Cashier Extraordinaire/ Customer Service Pro
The front register staff are the first people a shopper sees at the ReStore. We’re looking for folks who like to interact with people throughout the day and feel comfortable running a cash register. You’ll spend your time with our great staff and volunteers while meeting people from your community, all of whom are supporting Habitat! Be the first face customers see when they come into the ReStore! Meet a variety of people from the community while working alongside managers, staff, and other volunteers to manage the cash register area, use the cash register to ring up sales, and provide a friendly face to customers arriving in the store.
