Don't know about Fort Bliss? Don't worry, neither did many of the civilians working for the Army now. Its's the natural fear of the unknown. When you do find out though, we are almost 100% sure you'll be happily surprised of what the Department of Defense (DoD) has to offer civilians like you. To better understand Fort Bliss, there are things you should know. Fort Bliss is like a city within the city of El Paso. Instead of Mayor we have a Garrison Commander whom deals with many of the same issues as any other city mayor or manager. These issues include things like housing, health care, soldiers and their families, Army civilian employees and contractors or private firms, utilities, goods and products, environnmental issues, policing the community and many other forms of an infrastructure. Fort Bliss has banks as well credit unions, but these are not run by the Army. There are also restaurants, and clubs that cater to adults for after hours recreation, and hotels, all run by Army civilian employees. Fort Bliss also has a Commanding General, and his role is similar to a governor of the stare where that city is located and is mainly concerned with the tactical and technical aspects of managing an Army installation (ala post or base). Its human resources are soldiers and civilians, their well being, the equipment, and Fort Bliss' vision and mission. A volunteer job at Fort Bliss, can sometimes include working with, amongst and for a soldier that is a coworker, supervisor, manager, or director. However, a volunteer job can also mean you'll be working with another civilian just like you. The bottom line is expect to work with people of diverse social, regional and ethnic backgrounds, women and men of all age groups, who will make your volunteering experience worthwhile to you, UTEP and Fort Bliss. Criminal background checkup is required Fort Bliss is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer. “TEAM BLISS"
