Long lines, cuts possible at commissaries due to hiring freeze
Commissary shoppers may see abnormally long lines as the Defense Commissary Agency starts to feel a staffing squeeze as a result of an ongoing federal hiring freeze, officials said. DeCA officials have increased the hours of part-time employees to fill some staffing gaps. With more than 1,650 vacancies, of which 83 are management positions, and a 20 percent average employee turnover rate, an ongoing hiring freeze could eventually force officials to cut store hours, said Kevin Robinson, a DeCA spokesman.
