At Hunger Mountain Co-op we do not require our member-owners to work to receive the benefits of member-ownership, but participating in our member-owner labor program is a great way to learn more about your Co-op, provide a meaningful service to your co-op and community, and earn a discount! All shifts are filled on a first come, first served basis.
Support volunteers help support projects and events at the Co-op. Members will receive two weeks of a six percent shopping discount for every hour volunteered.
Core Worker Positions
Core workers are member-owners who work two hours per week for a six-month term. At the end of the six-month term, the positions become available to member-owners who have not participated in the program before. Members will receive a minimum-wage paycheck and a six percent shopping discount for the six-month term. Core jobs include bagel stocking, bagging, and cheese cutting.
Each position is scheduled at specific days and times of the week and training is provided. Space is limited. For more information or to sign up for a support volunteer or core worker opportunity, email us here.
If you are currently receiving a work optional, senior, Co-op Cares, or council discount you will continue to receive that discount only. If you are currently receiving a member labor discount, your end date for the 6% discount will be extended based on the additional hours you work.
