A very stimulating job.
Pros: free health care, cheap living accommodation, military discount at places
Cons: you have to be very adaptable to work conditions, your away from home for long periods of time
Its hard to say what a typical day at work is as you have to be very flexible, as your job is different from day to day.
You will all have have your own specific job which you will do, like me i was a vehicle mechanic but not always there was work to do so i would go and help some one else out who need the help.
I learnt how to carry out voice commands – more... whilst under pressure and in intense atmosphere.
I took control of a small team enabling us to complete tasks to deadlines.
I was to make sure all vehicles that came into the workshop was repaired and back on the road within a period of time, i was to ensure all documents was filled out and correctly logged before allowing the vehicle out the workshop.
I completed numerous of mechanical courses allowing to work on different military vehicle from, small land rovers to 20-tonne tanks, as well as completing mechanical course i also gained numerous driving licences from B cat to C+E i also did my H cat enabling me to drive tracked vehicle on the road.
I completed 12 months at the school of electrical and mechanical engineering where i learnt all about mechanics on military vehicle. Though out my military career i have gain numerous quantification's sadly some of them are not recognized out on civi street.
The hardest part of the job was the initial 6 months of basic training, where you was adapting to the military life but also that's where i share some of my best memory's too. – less
