I have been working at Army and Air Force Exchange full-time for more than a year

Pros

Excellent opportunities for advancement IF you have the drive and are mobile. What better way to see the world without having to join the military? Fast paced, rewarding, structured and stable.

Cons

As with most comments regarding companies....pay. With that said, you will probably start out with low pay but hard work, going the extra mile and excelling at what you do, the money will come. They have a great retirement program much like the military which is hard to find in the corporate world.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep your commitments of developing great leaders, awarding your associates and serving the best customers in the world. Continue cleaning up the ‘old school’ mentality and press on with pride. Hiring Tom Shull as CEO was a drastic and fantastic move.

    Great real-world experience, but chaotic and bureaucratic.

    I worked at Army and Air Force Exchange as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    This is an old-fashioned organization way behind the times technologically. If you like a slow pace, this is a great place to be.

    Cons

    Many employees are stuck in their ways because they've worked there for years and years. The atmosphere is very non-collaborative and it almost feels like the different departments compete with each other instead of work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move into the 21st Century.
