Senior Auditor (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 16, 2016
Basically it is cost/contracting auditing. Documentation documentation documentation and endless mgmt. reviews. The job is not hard and flexible hours, just very tedious and if you don't mind document everything and follow mgmt. suggestion, you'll fit right in.

Electronic Technician (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – October 16, 2015
My typical day involves so much respect for others. I have to be willing to step out of the box when time constraints and deadlines are priority. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think my job now would be the same job I did in the military. Aside from the deployments, field exercises, etc, I'd go back to do it all again. I do love being home every night, but I do not like the disrespect I witness from grown adults to other grown adults. People had told me the civilian sector was a cut throat entity; I have learned first hand, being smart, educated and skilled really doesn't matter, if you don't know the right people. if you are in the military and can stay...Do IT!
C17 Globemaster III Air Reserve Technician (Current Employee) – McGuire AFB, NJ – October 14, 2015
I've been working for the Department of Defense for 9 years now and it is the best decision that I have made with my life. The day I joined the military changed my life forever and now I work not only as a part time reservist but also as a full time civilian for the DOD. Its got allot of benefits financially, medically but most importantly the traveling benefits. You can literally go anywhere in the world and get paid to do it. Its great, hope to continue it for years to come.
Senior Enlisted Advisor (Former Employee) – San Antonio Texas – October 13, 2015
My roll at TRICARE was the Senior Enlisted Advisor and I was tasked with assisting the Director in the supervision of a multi million dollar contract throughout Latin America. While at this job I also functioned as a liaison between service members and the Director. I traveled extensively and assisted in the town hall meetings to explain and provide clarification on the contract to the consumers. It was very rewarding and I worked with a team that was truly a dedicated team of professionals.
