“Joining the Exchange is rewarding,” said Wright-Patterson AFB General Manager Adam Shaw. “We are seeking teammates who want to make a difference—including Veterans and military spouses. With competitive pay, great benefits and career growth, there’s a home for you at the Exchange.”

About 45% of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s U.S. workforce is made up of Veterans, military spouses or dependents. The Exchange worldwide has hired more than 57,000 Veterans and military spouses since 2013, with a goal to increase that number to 75,000 by 2030.

The Exchange offers competitive pay and benefits, including paid vacation and sick leave. When Veterans join the Exchange as full-time associates, their military service time can be used toward their Exchange retirement benefit.

Additionally, the Exchange’s associate transfer program helps military spouses retain employment during permanent changes of station, allowing them to keep their benefits and build toward retirement.

The Exchange, the Department of Defense’s largest retailer, consistently garners industry recognition for its commitment to hiring Veterans and military spouses, including ranking for 2023 as the No. 1 Military Friendly Spouse Employer and a Top Ten Military Friendly Employer by Viqtory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.
