ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT MEMBERSHIP
Q: Why is there a work requirement to be a member-owner?
A: Greene Hill Food Co-op has voted to be a 100% working co-op. That means that every member-owner is responsible for contributing work to the store. Using member-owner labor instead of paid labor helps us keep costs down, and it also helps maintain a sense of community among our members.
Q: How much do I have to work?
A: Currently, our work requirement is 2.5 hours every 4 weeks (13 times a year). If you work more than that, you can “bank” hours to count toward your requirements in the future.
Q: Do I need to sign up for work shifts as soon as I join?
A: Yes. Refer to work shift procedures for more information. All new member-owners have a grace period of 30 days to shop before working their first shift.
Q: What kind of work do I have to do?
A: You have a lot of choices. We have many work shifts that need to be done at specified times at the store, from receiving and stocking of groceries, to cashiering, and greeting member-owners at the door. There’s also a lot of important work to be done for the committees, most of which can be done from home and/or on your own time, if your schedule makes showing up for a regular store shift difficult.
