Member-Owner Opportunities

Attention Member-Owners

Honest Weight relies on Member-Owners to help run our store in a variety of ways, and only people who have purchased an ownership at HWFC are eligible to invest time as Owners and become Member-Owners. Here is a list of current needs, sorted by department. Please keep in mind your discount status when inquiring about assignments.

Times are evolving rapidly as we work to meet safety expectations and keep up with the needs of the community we serve. For direct and up-to-the-minute member-owner time investment inquiries, reach out to the department that you are interested in helping or contact the Member-Owner Coordinator, Yevette, at memberservices@honestweight.coop or 518-482-2667 ext 104.

Are you an Eco-Commuter? Member-Owners who travel to their time-investment shifts using a method of travel other than a personal vehicle are eligible to receive M-O time under our Eco-Commuter program. Contact Yevette at memberservices@honestweight.coop to inquire about details.
