Do I have to use bagging/carryout services and tip a bagger for providing these services?
Baggers work for tips only, however, you may choose not to use bagger/carryout services at all.
How can I get a job as a bagger in a commissary?
Baggers are not government or commissary employees, and are paid solely by the tips that commissary patrons offer in exchange for bagging/carryout services.
Baggers are self-employed, and work under a license agreement with an installation commander. Each commissary has a "head bagger" who coordinates and oversees bagger activities.
If you're interested in working as a bagger in a commissary, we recommend that you contact the "head bagger" at the commissary where you wish to work to find out what you have to do to get a job as a bagger.
Who should I contact if I have problems with a commissary bagger?
Although baggers are not government or commissary employees, and do not work under the direct supervision of commissary personnel, you should contact the Commissary Store Director or manager on duty regarding any concerns that you have about a bagger or about bagging/carryout operations.
Baggers are self-employed individuals who work under a license agreement with the installation commander, and who sign an Agreement with a Store Director to conduct themselves according to the terms of this Agreement when engaged in bagging/carryout duties.
A Store Director can suspend or revoke the license of a bagger who violates the terms of the license or Agreement.
