Productive work place
Customer Service (Former Employee), Tampa, FLAugust 26, 2014
A typical day would be cleaning, taking orders.
Management at Macdill AFB Burger King is horrible! The managers need to learn how to speak to their associates, not at them.
My co-workers were great people!
The hardest part of the job is dealing with the angry managers!
Most enjoyable part of the job was making the customers happy!

Challenging customer service
Senior Store Associate--Customer Service Counter (Current Employee), Clovis, NMJuly 31, 2014
Collect and count your cash drawer, turn on lights and computer to open the store; throughout the day work as a cashier but also perform extra duties including layaways, returns, and Western Union transactions, stock drink coolers, tobacco products, weekly ad flyers; at the end of the day turn off lights, turn in receipts from returns and Western Union – more... daily transaction log, cash drawer. It's like any workplace, you get along with some coworkers better than others but there isn't anyone that are awful to work with. The hardest part of the job can be the rude customers. Sometimes people think that because they are a Customer they are entitled to always be right and to treat the employees like dirt. The best part is some of my coworkers. They're very fun to work with and we get along well. We always manage to laugh and have fun when we work together. Bottom line, you definitely have to be able to keep your cool when dealing with difficult people. – less

Fun, productive and fast growing pace within the military community
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Shelby, MSJuly 29, 2014
Pros: non taxable merchandise
Cons: prices may be higher consider at a wal mart or a dollar tree
The Army & Air Force Exchange Services is a great company to work for. It provided me the opportunity to learn how to work in a military environment. My day depend on the workload that is given to me. I had a few good managers and I had some good co-workers that I enjoy working with. The hardest part of my job was standing up for a long period of time – more... on my feet. The most enjoyable is when we were not as busy and I had a chance to breathe and catch up on work that was long over due. Like dusting and organizing the shelves. I found that to be a delight of my day. I like to be organize. – less

Challeging military/govenment environment
Rest Manager - Army & Air Force Exchange (AAFES) (Former Employee), Andrews AFB, MDJuly 27, 2014
Pros: benefits package
Cons: salaried longer hours
I have worked for company for 23 years. This was a government/military environment, requiring long hours. Standards of practice were higher than on economy job sector. Work environment was a fast pace fast food restaurant, with sales being double that of off base competitors'. Employees and co-workers were trained to maintain that higher standard, and – more... displayed pride in doing so. The hardest part of my job was during government hiring freezes and limited personnel to get the job done with still high expectations. However, being prior military, it was an honor to serve the military and civilians that protected our country. – less

Corrupt
Stocker (Former Employee), McChord FieldJune 29, 2014
Pros: close to my house
Cons: every thing about this job is corrupt
This company is terrible. the managers allow foremen to treat associates with so much dis respect, the managers cover up the corruptness that goes on, and when you a file a compliant AAFES investigates themselves and the managers only question employees that go along with the corruption. I would not advise anyone to work at the McChord field BX until – more... someone comes in and cleans house,which is not going to happen, they say they are all the military when in fact they are all about the money. – less

Not your typical fast food restaurant
Food Service Foreman (Former Employee), Fort Sam Houston, TXJune 24, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: erratic scheduling, no time off, faulty equipment, low employee moral, corrupt management
A typical day started at 5 am with one other employee until about 8:30 am. We prepped the food for the day to come while also serving breakfast to customers. The location was plagued with equipment malfunctions and was understaffed and had terrible upper management, despite that we tried to make the best of a bad situation and fix things on our own. – more... Once I was promoted to foreman I started to address a lot of the issues and it wasn't met well with upper management. There were stretches of time where I had to work 2 - 3 weeks straight with no days off because of employees or supervisors quitting. The employee moral was terribly low because of not being appreciated by customers or ever being recognized by upper management or the organization. The hardest part was dealing with the favoritism that took place among the HR department in their hiring practices. We never got a single holiday off except Christmas and were forced to stay open even though all the soldiers on base had went home for exodus. – less

A failing company.
Laborer/Driver (Current Employee), Fort Bliss, TXJune 21, 2014
Pros: easy job
Cons: no one including management cares, company is hemorrhaging money which has manifested in lay offs, hour cuts and hiring freezes.
Major business decisions as well as micro-management is all conducted from headquarters with little to no contact with stores affected. There is a wide gap between management and exchange installations, leaving a nonsensical method of conducting day to day operations.
