Once you have become a Member-owner of GreenStar, you are eligible to volunteer at the Co-op and receive a higher discount on purchases. Working membership is a great way to get more involved, learn more about the Co-op, meet lots of people, save money and contribute to the overall operations and mission of GreenStar. Your participation as a member volunteer enhances the spirit of community that is so important to GreenStar’s mission and values!
Member Labor Volunteer Options
There are two levels of volunteer participation:
Work Commitment: 2 hours per week for a designated shift (same day, time, department)
Discount: As a Superworker you earn a 15½% discount on top of your 2% member discount for a total discount of 17½%
For every 2 hour shift you work, you earn 7 days of discount.
You can share your Superworker discount with one other adult member in your household. If you live in a one adult household, you can share your discount with another member who also lives in a one adult household.
Work Commitment: 2 hours per month
Some Memberworker shifts are scheduled for the same day and time every week, for example members who serve on a Council committee as a Member-at-Large.
Other Memberworker shifts have variable shift days and times, for example, members who help bag or attend the parking lot on our monthly 10 on the10th member appreciation sale days.
Discount: As a Memberworker you earn an 8% discount on top of your 2% member discount for a total discount of 10%.
You can share your Memberworker discount with one other adult member in your household. If you live in a one adult household, you can share your discount with another member who also lives in a one adult household.
If you do not share your discount, you will earn 4 weeks of discount (28 days) for every 2 hour shift you work.
If you do share your discount, you will earn 2 weeks of discount (14 days) for every 2 hour shift you work
We ask for a 6 month commitment for all Superworker and Memberworker shifts
How to Get a Member Labor Shift
We post all Member Labor shifts at the Member Centers in both the West End and Oasis stores. If you see a shift that interests you and works with your schedule, just fill out a Member Labor Request form located below the postings. A staff person from the Membership Department or Oasis will contact you about the shift.
