Super job 'Exchange'
Did you know:
More than a quarter of the Exchange workforce is from the hiring of veterans and military spouses. They currently employ 6,555 military spouses which represents 16 percent of workforce. Exchange HR offices are rewarded for supporting spouse employment to include transferring from one installation to another when the military member PCSs. They also currently employ 4,245 veterans, representing 10 percent of workforce. An Advanced Retail Management Program strives to place more veterans into management positions.
Navy fleet readiness exercise:
Wanted to make you aware that beginning Feb. 25 through March 1, many Navy installations will be participating in a fleet readiness exercise known as "Exercise Solid Curtain - Citadel Shield 2013". As a result, there is a potential for base access delays and traffic issues at installation gates.
Recommend that any of your vendor reps who need to visit a location during that week contact the local exchange management to see if there are any delays or closures.
