    Sep 19, 2008, 5:03 PM - GOOD NEWS.....well, sort of. #1

    As of right now (FINALLY), and after 7 months without a job and collecting unemployment (reason I haven't been online here that much)....I got a job at AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service) at the Main Store on Ft. Benning, I'll be running the Sporting Goods, Toys, and Gardening areas. The salary is not much, but something to start with ($6.55/hr) . My Manager said that she will discuss with someone higher to see if I could get paid more (close to $10.00/hr AT LEAST), since I have VETERAN'S PREFERENCE and qualifications. She was surprised when I told her that after my two-day training. In the meantime I'll be looking for something better, though.

    Regardless of the circumstances, I really appreciate everyone's support and I will keep you informed if any changes. See you guys soon.

    PS: No, I don't get EMPLOYEES DISCOUNT.

    Gee...'87 ??? Just to let you know, a brand NEW PX was built just accross the old one, and it's (according to sources) the #3 BIGGEST PX in the world. So......ITS HUGE now! It even has a GAMESTOP shop, FOOD Court, and over a dozen other little stores...almost like a shopping mall.

    Commissary is still where it's being all this time, though.

    I'm very happy you got a job! It's horrible being unemployed. But tell me is that $6.55 before or after taxes..? It is incredibly low. If you're not a member of a labour union, talk to someone immediately..

    Congrats on the job! Being military, I know that I appreciate having AAFES wherever we go.
    Our BX here at Kunsan isn't as large as some in the states for sure, but it's nice to have across the street.
