When using education to qualify, the education must have equipped you with the knowledge and ability to perform the work of the position, as evidenced by on-the-job-training in food retail management or an internship or practicum in food retail management. 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-7: (A) one year of specialized experience equivalent to at least the GS-5 grade level or equivalent to at least GS-5 under other Federal service pay systems, private sector, or military, OR (B) one full year of graduate level education with major study in business administration, public administration, agricultural economics (food industry management), or other fields related to the position; or superior academic achievement, OR (C) a combination of experience and education that equals 100% of the qualification requirements. 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.
