FORT HOOD, Texas – The Exchange is where heroes work, and the Fort Hood Exchange is looking to expand its ranks at the main store, Express and all Exchange food locations.

“The PX offers training, competitive pay and great benefits, as well as a rewarding atmosphere,” said Fort Hood Exchange General Manager Chris Haefner. “The Exchange is family serving family, and we are looking forward to growing that family with those who have a passion for serving Soldiers and the Fort Hood community.”

Benefits for regular full-time and part-time Exchange associates include paid vacation and sick leave. Additionally, the Exchange’s associate transfer program helps military spouses retain employment during Permanent Change of Station (PCS), allowing them to keep their benefits and build toward retirement.

The team’s deep passion for serving sets the Exchange apart. Associates share a special bond with service members—85 percent have a military connection. They have served in the Armed Forces or are the parent, spouse or extended family member of someone who is wearing or has worn the country’s uniform.

At the Exchange, 45 percent of the U.S. workforce is made up of veterans, military spouses or dependents. The Exchange is closing in on its goal of hiring 50,000 veterans and military spouses.

Anyone interested in an exciting career with the Exchange can visit or contact the Fort Hood Exchange Recruiting office at (254) 532-9514, menu option 5, to find out more.
