Typical day at work I usually create a happy and positive vibes around me. I just do my thing and finish what ever task is assigned for me. I learned interacting with different people with different needs in different situations and I am happy to provide the help and services that a costumer needs. The management helps me enhanced my knowledge regarding retailing and services we provide. And I'm looking forward to learn more and learn everything if possible. Working with co-workers is one of the basic things to make job a lot more easier by having teamwork and a positive outcome in the work place. The hardest part of my job is lifting boxes and making sure that everything is available at the costumers convenience. And the most enjoyable part of my job is being able to help and interact with costumers and being friends with them and I get to meet a lot of people.
Jewelry Supervisor (Former Employee) – Brunswick, ME – December 6, 2016
I was able to move up quickly. Was able to move around from department to department just learning the ins and outs of each. Took the opportunity to attend a management class. Even got to travel a little.
Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Brunswick, ME – November 30, 2016
This was a second job and the management was very accommodating to having a pregnant wife who was having complications as a active duty member. It was a great way for me to get in the retail business. I typically worked the customer service desk handling purchases, returns, lay-a-way, tobacco purchases, money orders, check cashing and STAR card applications. There wasn't a hard part of the job, everything was very easy but sometimes the computer froze while processing payment or money orders. The enjoyable part was working with my co-workers who were always smiling and amazing kind and generous with their time to train me.
Very good to work for and very nice people to work with.
accts. receivable clerk, payroll (Former Employee) – Newport, RI – November 30, 2016

Sales Associate/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Goose Creek, SC – November 11, 2016
I enjoyed working for this company. The staff is very kind and friendly. I would recommend this company to anyone for employment. The only thing i did not enjoy is that if you don't fit in you know almost immediately. taking care of the customers was the best and most enjoyable thing. You have to stock , do warehouse work, and run the floor on an everyday basis. Don't look into this job without being able to do every job that you could apply for at the company because at some point you will be and not be compensated for it.

Barber/Stylist (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – November 9, 2016
My job at the Navy Exchange began at 8:30 am and ends at 1;30 pm. within that time I normally cut 30 to 40 hair cuts while making sure my work station is clean. However, the best part of working there is meeting new people on a daily bases.
We had holidays off and Parties
We had to work on Sunday mornings and short breaks
Sales Technician (Former Employee) – Bangor Naval Submarine Base, WA – November 5, 2016
Made sure all new stock was processed and accepted. Took care of customers in Electronics. Accepted and placed on display all new computers and TV's. Trained new personnel on company policies and departmental policies. My management was outstanding in supporting me and allowing me to grow within my areas of expertise.
The hardest part was dealing with upset customers. I had more patience than a lot of coworkers. I always tried to calm them down and make sure they were happy with the solution.
The most enjoyable was teaching every one that the job was nor stressful by keeping my attitude in the right place.
Recognition for a job well done and lunches provided when we did and outstanding job.
Sometimes not being able to take a break but that was few and far between.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – November 3, 2016
Management doesn't care about the employees. Pay is super low for what we do. Too much drama, trust no one. Worst job anyone could have. I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to have this job. Just don't work here plain and simple. Too much to be done for so little pay. Not worth it. Never get breaks or lunches, but they still take it out of my paycheck. My pay checks are never accurate and always have to get them corrected. People here don't understand anything. A worm is smarter than managers here.

Customer Service, Cashier Checker (Former Employee) – Naval Base San Diego, CA – November 1, 2016
I had fun during my time during my time at the Navy Exchange. I learned a lot, in particular Customer Service. My co-workers worked at the Navy Exchange for quite some time and gave me valuable tips and tricks of retail. The hardest part of working at the Navy Exchange is that I can not satisfy every guest's needs or requests.

Lead Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 14, 2016
Whether I am opening or closing within the deli department, I make sure that we are set for success for the day. I make sure everything is well stocked so when the rush comes in, everything is flowing correctly. I learned how to utilize time management, to manage my emotions with people and brighten their day, and how to genuinely care for the company who pays for me to live daily. My co-workers are a roller coaster of emotions that have been a reason for me to stay as long as I have. The hardest part of the job is pleasing my manager but she is a giver of tough love. The most enjoyable part is memorizing the orders of regular customers, my customers updating me with their outside life and having a feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day when everything flows well because it is a tough department to keep up with.
