Very exciting and always new people
Food Service Worker/ Temporay Supervisor (Former Employee), Biloxi, MSJanuary 16, 2015
Pros: half off lunches and the overall expierence!
Cons: not many hours unless part or full time. intermitten is only gaurnteed 3 hrs a week.
A typical day includes meeting new people from all over the world whom are just passing thru. Getting to hear where they are from and giving them some much needed conversation, customer service and good food. Co-workers work together and enjoy seeing and catching up with each other. The hardest part of the job is when saying goodbye to loyal customers whom are off on another mission or whom get to go home! I would say the most enjoyable part of the job was the customers and knowing what they do for our country. Also the learning experience of being able to organize, prepare myself, and problem solve for any unexpected situations.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Honolulu, HIJanuary 6, 2015
The coworkers and manager there are very friendly, and I enjoyed working with them. They are closed of Sundays and Federal holidays, so that was a plus. The only bad thing was one cashier gets benefits and the others don't. They are considered Intermittent, and gets 0 benefits.

LOGISTICS ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Forest Park, GADecember 23, 2014
Pros: we always had lucheons ate good, and awards ways given out.
Cons: when we learned that the company would be closing due to down sizing
My typical day would start off by me updating my tally report, and sending in the Attendance report. Then I would go out to the floor and mark any new tallies turned in the day before, I also keyed PO and answered the phone. Then I would contact the buyers in HQ Texas and check on the results of the tallies. I learned a lot about inbound and out bound containers, I learned a lot about management , I would fill in whenever our office manger was out, My coworkers and I got along fine, we always got the job dune and had fun doing it. The hardest part of my Job would be during our peck season, we would get about 30 or 40 containers and we did a lot of overtime around Sept thru Dec. The most enjoyable time was I love a challenge and the my job keep me busy and I always learned something new.

Manager (Former Employee), USADecember 21, 2014
Pros: full time employment has affordable insurance and the vacation and sick time benefits are great.
Cons: training in some retail areas is not up to par.
The company has a great benefits package. It is a fifty fifty chance that you will get a manager that will train you the way you need to be able to perform your job. I have been fortunate in the Loss Prevention Management field with my area manager. My first manager was not as open with training.

Supv. E-Business Analyst (Former Employee), Dallas, TXDecember 19, 2014
Pros: meeting deadlines and cammaraderie with employees/colleagues
Cons: getting older! work to enjoy work it's a blessing
I was most fortunate to work for such a great company at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service. I decided to take early retirement when the option was available and start a new career since I was just 50. Knowing that making a career change at 50 is better than 55 so I took the opportunity to get an annuity with the intent of commencing a new Career.

My goal is to get another career job where I can work 12 - 15+ years and get receive a 2nd retirement.

General Manager (Former Employee), Buckley AFB, CODecember 8, 2014
Pros: a chance to see the world.
Cons: expect to work long days and ok pay.
Excellent place to work and grow in the company. Expect long days/hours of work but very rewarding serving the military, families, and retirees. Best part is a chance to see the world if the positions become open but as the military downsizes so does the opportunities.

My employment with AAFES was on a 12 months contract.There were know benefits, an 8 hour day consist of observing 3 receiving docks with about 80 truck bays.It was my job to make sure that all trash cans were emptied and relined with bags ,that no cardboard qua
sare plastic was left on the floor and put in the proper container.
I learned the value of recycling material and their worth.Working for the government is different than the private sector, it present opportunities as well as challenges.My co-workers were of all nationalities.the hardest part of my job at first, was the walking and the temperature, it was either too hot are too cold.The people on this job were some of the most friendly that I ever met I really enjoyed going to work.

the management was great to work for.
my co workers were the best, we all got along and helped each other out if need be.
the hardest part of the job was the weather if you had to go out side in the - degree weather.
the most enjoyable part of my job was everything, everyday you never was something different which was great.
