Aafes is great for starting out.
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – August 12, 2018
After working for Aafes for 3 yrs now I have learned, processed, and witnessed a lot of things. I haven't always have the best managers or supervisors some bring home to work, some are so overly stressed that how employees should be treated becomes a lesser factor. I do enjoy working for Aafes. They pay more than minimum wage at most places. They are very good at working around your busy life style whether it's a second job, school, or you have a family to take care of. As far as moving up the ladder, it is really hard to do so. Even if you take all the course, been with the company for 10 yrs, and have potential you won't get very far. I love how diverse the company is and meeting various people from a plethora of countries. It strengthens your customer service, communication, time management, money handling skills.
Overall Army and Air force Exchange Services is a great company to start work and deciding a career. For someone who is fresh out of high school, going through college, or even undecided and to keep up with minimal bills. Each environment is different at various locations.
