Always ensure that safety procedures are being carried out at all times.
Always be positive and smile when around guests.
Listen, be attentive and be courteous to everyone.
If people are visiting for the very first time and want to know about memberships and what TXAA/TAC is all about, give them a tour around the facility and talk pricing with them (use available handouts). This will give the newcomers a mental picture of what they are committing to and helps make the sell. You are rewarded by a $2 bonus for new members you assist – they enter your name on the application.

Ranges should be monitored for proper targets for equipment being used/unsafe shooting form. Portable targets should be used under your supervision – some shooters may put a target in an inappropriate area, possibly causing arrow bounce backs or other damage.

The work table/front counter must be kept clean and orderly at all times. Please eat meals before/after your shift, and no trash left behind!
When you have free time: repair the ranges; sweep up; check the restrooms hourly; organize the tables and chairs; windex all glass/windows/doors – keep the facility organized and presentable at all times.
