The responsibility of a donation sorter works in our warehouse to open our bags of donations, sort through our clothing items, and prepare them for our staff to price and hang. If items are in unsaleable condition they are put in a
separate area to be discarded. Rather than throw these items away, they are sold in bulk to organizations who distribute them in Africa. Also, if shoes or other items are found in the bags they are put into bins to be sent to our Thrift Store location for pricing. This is the ideal job for individuals who enjoy clothes and can make a good story to go with what you find. If you see cute children's clothes in the store and say out loud, "Isn't that adorable?" then this is the job for you. Why not sign up a group of friends? We have a lot of fun!
The thrift store retail assistant processes, sorts and stocks donations to the thrift store and performs sale floor duties as assigned.
They must possess excellent customer service skills and be able to undertake the physical requirements involved with the Thrift Store setting. Good oral commutation skills and language skills are an advantage. Duties also include maintaining the safety and cleanliness of the store. If you like meeting people, showing off what you have to share, and take pride in what you do, this could be the spot for you.
You will meet some wonderful people. Some may come in, grab what they want, and go. But that isn't the norm. Most of our customers are part of the ACTS family and come to the store to meet, chat, and look for that latest piece of something they can't live without!
