The foundation for success of the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) mission is our people. It is DeCA’s goal to have a workforce that is representative of the nation’s diverse cultures and backgrounds. We strive for a work environment of world-class enterprise leaders and an engaged, highly motivated, and capable workforce with a results oriented performance culture.

The DeCA operates a worldwide commissary system that provides quality grocery products at cost to active duty military personnel and retirees, members of the Reserve and National Guard, and their families. The agency employs about 18,000 people and its annual sales exceed $6 billion.

Failure to submit all of the documents on time will result in automatic disqualification.
