A consignor can work up to three 3-hour helper shifts.  Each shift worked gets you 5% more.

Note: The maximum payout for the third shift a helper works shall not exceed $50 for a three hour shift - Ex. Say your earnings are $1,200.  If you worked 2 shifts that would get you 75% = $900.  If you worked a third shift that would get you 80% = $960.  Your difference for the third shift cannot exceed the $50, so your total would be $950, less a consignor fee.
