JBF Team FAQs
Q. Can anyone sign up as a team member and attend the pre-sales?
A. Check for details at your local sales event page. Each local sales event sets its own guidelines for serving as a team member, except that all JBF sales events are committed to not discriminating against any applicant on the basis of any protected characteristic.
Q. What do team members do?
A. Team members perform a variety of tasks including: item inspection, sale set-up and break-down, floor help, merchandise prep, team leading, meal preparation, providing snacks, customer service, safety inspection, and more! Check your local sales event page where you will find a complete listing of shifts available.
Q. Do I need to have prior experience?
A. Do not worry if you haven't been a team member with us before, we'll show you what to do! Please plan to arrive well before your shift for a little training. The arrival time before each shift varies by sales event, so please check your local site for additional information.
Q. Can I bring a guest to the team member pre-sale?
A. At this time, team members are not allowed to bring guests to the exclusive pre-sale. Each pre-sale pass is good for only one person to enter the pre-sale. Additionally, no children are allowed at the pre-sale.
Q. I'm pregnant or have a medical condition. Is it OK for me to be a team member?
A. If you are pregnant or have a medical condition, you will want to participate when the workload is less. We have several shifts available with jobs that can be done sitting down if you require. If you need these positions, please email your local event coordinator with your request when registering, and they will try to accommodate your request. But please make sure to clear all activity with your doctor prior to participating.
Q. What if I don’t see the barter or shift I want?
A. Available barters and shifts will be listed online. However, please contact your local event coordinator if you feel you have a unique barter to offer that is not listed. We are open to being creative. These opportunities are extended at the discretion of the local event coordinator.
Q. What should I wear?
A. Please consider comfort and ease of motion above fashion and flair. Most team members choose to wear comfortable pants such as jeans and a comfortable shirt, such as a short sleeved or long-sleeved T-shirt (and if you have a JBF shirt, by all means! Please wear it!). If you’d like, you can also layer so you can adjust to fit the conditions in your work space. Also, shoes that give good support and comfort such as tennis shoes are highly encouraged. Don’t worry, we know you’ll look fabulous!
