I loved working at The Navy Exchange! the experience was wonderful to me, the pay was great and i loved the staff, they were like family to me. The customers grew to know me and would ask me how school is, how's my day and make conversation with me. HEARING their stories touched my heart knowing that they go through so much to protect our country.

if you are a military spouse please avoid this place. there is no benefits for you even though the military plays it like these jobs were made for you. the wages are low, new management comes in and changes schedules and the way things are done and if they dont like you, they will continually find ways to let you go. HR department is not proactive and management is quite abusive, along with supervisors. They don't respect your scheduling needs, and you will do way more than your job description, they will micromanage you constantly. Please run away from this place , it's truly not worth it and will suck the life out of you everytime you show up.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Goose Creek, SC – September 3, 2018
Always changing environment which is typical of retail business so no chance to ever get bored! Most managers worked well together and helped and flexible in a constant changing environment with expected daily call outs. Hardest part of the job was finding reliable employees with work ethics and keeping morale positive. Working with return customers and young Nuke School students was enjoyable. Realizing that you don't always have control over decisions that a government agency makes, making every customer happy, and instilling work ethics in employees. Trying to keep communication for all employees so that they realize changes are always happening was a constant issue.

The Navy Exchange was a good place to work. Flexible schedule and relaxed work environment. There seemed to be a good team attitude. Other workers were very helpful in training and willing to help when needed

I was hired as a warehouse worker, but promoted to supervisor within 2 months. Basically everything I did were from my Navy experience. I dealt with personnel issues, but it wasn't nothing that I couldn't handle.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 10, 2018
A typical day at the Navy Exchange was exciting and fun. Management was good and even offered to help out if it was busy. the hardest part of the job is telling the customer that we do not have their item they want.
Sales/Computer Technician (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 5, 2018
I've been 4-5 yrs working at NEX, never that they give internal a chance to be full time or chance to grow unless someone quit or resign. Not a good place to expand and get train specially if they call you an asset. Slow growth for everybody. Older people will be ok for redundant work environment. Need to know somebody in upper management before you get appreciation.
no pros for this one
20 hrs or less for part time specially slow season.
Love to work here but the fact that the pay is on the very low end makes it a little less enjoyable. The company offer benefits such as dental and Health insurance as well as a retirement plan. Furthermore, there is the options for a 401 k plan. Great thing is that you will accumulate leave and sick leave days.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oceana, VA – July 28, 2018
I found this place to be super unorganized and nobody really seemed to care. During training to be a cashier the "trainer" was rude to me then left because of being sick from medication. I have worked retail over 10 years and this is about the bottom of the barrel.There's almost zero communication. Online applications say 1 thing and HR says another. Too many problems.
Some decent priced items
Short breaks, extra low pay, lies, unprofessional co-workers
Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – July 26, 2018
Best suited for retired military personnel. Does not have the best leadership and some work locations are substandard working conditions. The most enjoyable part of my job is serving the military personnel.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kings Bay, GA 31547 – July 25, 2018
I love this job. The work family was amazing and management was as well. I started this job while I was in high school and remained seasonal until I couldnt work there anymore. I would go back in a heart beat if I could work weekends only
