Director, Task Force (Former Employee) – Ft. Lewis, WA – December 26, 2013
This was an extremely challenging position at which I believe I succeeded. My last performance rating was exceptional. I was challenged because everything was new. I was responsible for coordinating my employee's talent to create new learning on a day to day basis. The task I was given was to develop a training program and train trainers to give the training. By the time my term position had ended, we had completed approximately 15% within a 12 month period. The training was very well received. An enjoyable part of the job was traveling throughout the world. The hardest part was being on the road 90% of the time and daily changing mission requirements.
Medic / EMT (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 13, 2013
Typical day began with early morning workouts followed by a 12 hour day, depending at the task at hand. As medical specialists for an infantry company we were required to maintain medical vehicles, inventory & manage mass amounts of supplies/equipment, screen patients for morning sick call, and keep our certifications current. We were required to keep the non-medical soldiers' skill levels current as well. Be it stateside boredom or overseas combat operations, we were responsible for the well-being of an entire platoon. I personally enjoyed working with the infantry soldiers and teaching them first aid skills. Through teaching, training, and going out on missions with those guys, I gained irreplaceable knowledge, hands-on experience, and personal pride. Those combined made it a very enjoyable, though difficult job.
Excellent command to work with and for, leader in medical care and treatment innovation
Contact Representative/Transfer Coordinator (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 31, 2013
Being a part of this command has been an awesome journey. Seeing first hand the exceptional work, compassion and dedication the military and civilian workforce has towards warriors and their families is unmatched. 100% team effort is given from the simplest to the greatest of tasks. Managers are encouraging. They push for self-improvement and development. The most challenging part of my job is seeing wounded service members arrive here at the brink of death and the most rewarding part of my job is seeing some of those same service men and women recover and walk or roll out of the hospital moving on to their next course in life.
Staff Neuropsychologist (Former Employee) – Fort Wainwright, AK – July 4, 2013
I loved working as a staff Neuropsychologist at the TBI Clinic. The patient population was challenging but rewarding, AD clinic members were friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to work with, and the majority of the civilian staff was kind and routinely went above and beyond to serve patients. The civilian management in the TBI clinic and the administrative department were hostile and often treated certain staff members unfairly.
enjoyable work environment overall.
poor management which allows for bullying and hostility.
Allowed development of leadership and management skills
Corporate Training and Development Specialist (Current Employee) – KY – April 12, 2013

Washington (Former Employee) – JBLM – December 16, 2012
Before you go into the reserves as a PA check the unit in which you will be assigned. The administration, who are often active duty and civilian personnel lack efficiency and you will spend alot of your civilian time trying to REPEATLY correct their mistakes. Everyone has a different interpretion of the Army Regulations and procedures. There is a reason they are constantly posting ads. Most active duty PA leave the service because of better job opportunities, compensation and are able to spend more time with their families. Although you are offer a 60,000 incentive, when broken down in man hours you fall way too short. Most PA civilian careers will enhance and increase knowledge whereas being in the reserves you take a huge risk again of falling short. PA are valued less than MD and can be activated to do NON-CRITICAL/WAR assignments for a year, away from you civilian job and family and MD only have to complete 3 months. Proceed with caution the commercials can be deceiving.
army lacks efficiency, poor assignments, lack of growth
Dental Lab Tech (Former Employee) – Fort Gordon, Ga – November 18, 2011
This is the most diverse and loyal organization you could work for! Not only are you working civilians and military side by side, but the depth of knowledge and experience in it's employees is awesome. You meet people from different backgrounds and places, and we are all working together for a common goal. Being part of a team that takes care of the worlds finest soldiers is the most rewarding job I have had.
