Just a tip…

PEOPLE!  If you are coming to the Commissary to look for a job…understand…

  • This is not a GS-12 position that you are applying for…we are the Post Grocery Store, just think Safeway/Piggly Wiggly/Krogers before your start demanding Banker’s Hours.
  • Um…as with any place, if you are coming to pick up an application, please try to take a bath, wash your face, comb your hair, deodorant would be nice…one or all of the above should be done.  I understand that you see us as the Grocery Store (we are) but washing your ass is a courtesy to the people in the office.
  • Inquiring about a job DRUNK is a no-no.  If the person giving you an application can smell the alcohol on your person, and it stays in the office an hour afterwards…well, they may not be interested in interviewing you. 
  • If you can’t manage to keep from getting drunk, please try to take a bath.  At least you will be clean while drunk.
  • Don’t look at the Secretary’s last name (that would be me) and ask her if she is one of those Arabs or Iraqis.  Don’t ask her if she speaks anything other than English.  Don’t ask her where she is from…if she is black, white, mixed (I guess I am a chicken meal from Popeye’s), Hispanic, Arab, Muslim, etc.  The Secretary (that’s me) lacks a filter between her mouth and her brain.  She is not responsible for hurting your feelings…
  •  Please, please, please…if you are standing in line and the person right in front of you is getting an application, being told (loudly by the Secretary) what is available, what isn’t, who to call…please people do not ask the Secretary the exact same questions.  The Secretary is losing patience and will not be held responsible for what comes out of her mouth. *see lack of filter*
  • THE SECRETARY IS NOT THE POST OPERATOR, THE FT HUACHUCA OPERATOR, THE SIERRA VISTA OPERATOR, THE LONG DISTANCE OPERATOR.  SHE IS NOT DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE FOR SIERRA VISTA.  The only numbers that she knows are the ones in the store.  Please do not get an attitude with her when she tells you that she doesn’t know Sgt Smith who works someone on Ft Huachuca…maybe in the band.  That is like calling Safeway and asking the people in the store for the number of someone that lives in Sierra Vista, but they don’t work at Safeway. 
  • FINALLY…I am not the DES (Department of Economic Services)…I do not handle EBT cards, WIC, I do not know where the jobs are, I have no information on how to register there…etc.  Please call your case worker or get one for the above information.
  • BTW…I DON’T SPEAK SPANISH.  Just because I look Hispanic doesn’t mean I speak the language.  I don’t go up to people that I think look German and start speaking German at them.  Please don’t do it to me…

Ahem…I feel better now.  They opened up the Post to anyone.  Now I am getting locals in the office (they have no affiliation with the Army) and some of them look like they were drinking and rolling around in the dirt before they come in the office.  It is getting really ridiculous…
