3rd Officer (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – June 21, 2017
Days can be mundane or terrifying. I learned about dealing with difficult people. Management..............disconnected. Workplace culture breeds apathy. The hardest part of the job is being away from family and dealing with apathetic management. The most enjoyable part of the job is traveling to different countries and being paid to do so.
Secure job once you're past the probationary period.
Dealing with difficult, toxic people who enjoy abusing their power.
SUPPLY UTILITYMAN (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – May 31, 2017
Best job I ever had. Not being able to see my kids grow up who were much younger at the time really got me down. Wish they were better at releasing people when its time to go on leave. It was hard trying to plan a vacation with my family when you don't know exactly when they are going to let you go home. Other than that I loved the pay and the traveling. Wish I could do it again.

Mail Clerk (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 28, 2017
A typical day at work was to ensure that I sorted and distributed mail throughout the agency. I made daily mail runs to other facilities to drop off and pickup mail. Other duties (see resume). This job was one of the first permanent jobs that I held, which was longer than 5 years. I worked well with my colleagues and the office environment was always fun. I didn't have any instances where I thought the job was hard.

It is a great opportunity to advance your license quickly and experience different platforms, but the advancement in positions are not always equal to the advancement of your knowledge. Time off is not great
