Evab1 Dispatcher

Hi Michel! I would rather volunteer as a dispatcher.


Hi @Evab1, thanks so much for volunteering as a dispatcher as well! Our dispatchers have made you a dispatcher, and you can now access dispatcher areas on the website.

As a dispatcher, you always volunteer from home, working remotely! You can pick one (or more) of these two areas:

  • Customer care: respond to questions from new members on how to register and use the system
    Our volunteers may pick shifts of roughly 3 hours, throughout the day and the week
  • Workflow dispatch: prepare delivery runs for our drivers—a somewhat technical and detailed-oriented task that requires good familiarity with spreadsheets
    Workflow dispatching shifts start at 7:00pm. Volunteers may pick days of the week for their shifts.

The best way to familiarize yourself with HelpBerkeley.org is to read the New dispatcher welcome (only accessible by dispatchers). Ask if you have any questions!

Thank you for again for volunteering your time with us, we’re glad to have you on board!

If you are interested in workflow dispatching and are comfortable with spreadsheets, we particularly need more workflow dispatchers: they are a hard skill to find! But my suggestion is to get in a few weeks of driving, and then see if you also have time for dispatching!
