Pros: the pride you take in your work, self image, skills obtain, co workers, learning many things.
Cons: you can become complacent
A typical day for me is starting by arming up with my m-4 in the pre hour of my starting shift. Once i have had my guard mount which pass on's from my supervisor or any one else I head out to my post or job task for the day. Each day I have a different post. Throughout my 8 hour shift i will conduct security checks, check authorization of personal going – more... in and out of the base, check authorization of restricted areas, ensure the safety and security of military personal and military equipment, stay aware of everything that is happening on the base, respond to any emergencies, complete any task that are giving to me and most of all have fun but yet be positive and at all times be professional.
I have learned many things that cannot be writing down. I could go on forever but to summarize it up. I have learned how to be a military policemen in all aspects, a better supervisor as well as a follower. I have learned how to be a better worker and person. I have honed some of my thinking and learning skills such as dedication and being open minded.
I myself am supervisor so overall i think it is good. I myself along with many others are always learning how to be better but overall we ensure the job gets done and yet the moral of our subordinates is high. One thing is that we are always trying to help each other.
My co-workers are great people to work with. They share the same type of dedication. We have our own ways of thinking so in a way its good because you learn a different way to view something. My co workers can come to me for help and wisdom and as I can go to them.
The hardest part of the job is to avoid becoming complacent. My job consist of some daily routing task. When conducting those, one can come complacent.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with different people and interacting with my different type of people everyday.Also, the realization of responsibility you have comes with joy and pride. – less
