Hands-On Owner Program

The Dill Pickle's Hands-On Owner (HOO) Program enables owners to take an active role in the co-op’s operations, outreach, and governance through voluntary workshifts, thanked with a 15% weeklong store discount per two hours committed. Fill out a HOO Profile to get started! 

Ownership orientations
Join us to learn more about our co-op's vision, structure, sourcing, operations, and ways to get involved! There will be snacks. Prospective HOOs are encouraged to attend an orientation prior to scheduling a shift. (If dates don't line up for you, get in touch! We'll work around it.) 

Upcoming dates: July: Thu 7/28, 3:30-5pm. Sessions are held at the Logan Square Library, 3030 W Fullerton. RSVP to Ally at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Sessions with fewer than 3 participants will not be held.

Scheduling & discounts 
Operations schedules are set monthly, with 2hr workshifts recurring weekly. All other shifts/projects are scheduled on an individual basis. 15% HOO discount becomes effective the day of your workshift and extends for one week thereafter. Discount does not apply to items already on sale or Basic Needs Basket items.

Operations Training
All new HOOs working in operations will receive training during the first shift under the direction of the assigned department lead. (Grocery with Michael, Fridge/Bakery with Dana, Wellness with Patrick, Produce with Amber.)
