Specialized experience qualifications requirements are written to the lowest equivalent grade level that meets the minimum specialized experience. What does this mean to applicants? Example: An applicant has one year of specialized experience at the GS-8 grade level and wants to apply for a GS-9. The GS-9 requires specialized experience equivalent to at least the GS-7. Since the applicant has specialized experience at a higher grade (i.e., GS-8) than is required (i.e., GS-7), the applicant can apply for the GS-9.

For GS-11: (A) one year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the GS-9 grade level or equivalent to at least GS-9 under other Federal service pay systems, private sector, or military, OR (B) three full years of progressively higher graduate level education leading to such a degree, or LL.M.

For GS-14: One year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the GS-13 grade level or equivalent to at least GS-13 under other Federal service pay systems, private sector, or military.

Specialized experience is demonstrated knowledge of retail procurement and distribution methods; principles, procedures, and techniques of retail food merchandising and retail food store management; and developments in commercial retail food store items, equipment, and practices. Examples of creditable qualifying specialized experience include: (1) Managing a commissary store, supermarket, or similar type of commercial retail food store; (2) Managing a department in a retail food store; (3) Planning, standardizing, or controlling operations in an assigned group of retail food stores; (4) Developing, interpreting, or applying policies, procedures, and operating standards for use in a retail food store; and (5) Providing technical advice on merchandising and operational matters pertaining to grocery, meats, and produce supplies, as well as front-end operations.

Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service program (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience.

See the Group Coverage Qualification Standard for Administrative and Management Positions and Individual Occupational Requirement for the Commissary Management Series for more information about qualifications and/or combining experience and education to meet the minimum qualifications.
