    Pros

    If you are a military spouse you have job preference at new duty stations and you will be able "to go where you go". If you are a civillian you are a DOD Employee and get a Cac Card. You get shopping privileges worldwide at all exchanges(AAFES, NEX). High turnover rate so there's usually always a job opening.

    Cons

    High turnover rate so rules and policies change frequently. They really like "acting" supervisors/managers, and most times whoever was acting usually doesn't get the permanent job. The only company that'll protect a manager that's abusive. HR is understaffed and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Implement more employee reward programs or think up new ways to boost morale. The store manager/sr management makes such a difference. Never talk down to your employees, be the type of manager that will help load bricks into a customers car or help sell a tv.
