Very Productive
Infantryman (Current Employee), Shreveport, LAApril 15, 2014
Pros: brotherly bonds
Cons: fighting in our time of comradery
A typical day at work is always at work's peak. I learned how to maintain focus, and a clear conscience. To be selfless and mindful of my peers to my left and right. The management is awesome. My chain of command is very professional and in contact with the lower enlisted. The hardest part of the day is the down part of the day. In the infantry, down – more... time is just time to sit and talk and play games. I believe in hard work from clock in to clock out. The most enjoyable part of the job is being with my Battle buddies and having an understanding that we all want to go home at the end of the day. We all have families and understand that we are all one big family. To be able to enjoy the people I work with. – less

A Typical weekend of Training is great. Its just like the regular, active Army. We show up and train, train, train. The people there are great, lead well and can follow orders like no others. Everyone is very well disciplined and we all honor and respect one another. Chain of command is a big thing and every rule is followed.

SPC Aviation Operations Specialist (Current Employee), Grand Ledge, MIApril 14, 2014
Pros: serving my country
Typical day i deal with pilots and their paperwork to make sure they can fly. What ive learned is how to file proper paperwork to make sure the flights are approved, how to track the helicopters, how to talk to the pilots on the radio. The management is great, they train me and help me when needed. The coworkers are great as well, they are there to – more... assist and help keep everything running smooth and have fun at the same time. The hardest part of the job is keeping track of multiple helicopters when you get an adequate amount out flying. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to serve my county and assist in pilots training for when it is time to go to war. – less

Signal Systems Support Specialist (Current Employee), Fresno, CAApril 13, 2014
The military has made me what I am today. The work ethic, the discipline have shaped my professional life. Anyone who enlists will have grooming in their vocabulary if it wasn't already, instill, at best, basic exercise habits and encourage a demeanor that reverberates positively.

Pros: experience

As a company commander, I delegect, plan, and mentor. I learned to lead as well as follow within the countries greatest institution, the US Army.

Most enjoyable part is having a Soldier happy they – more... learned and executed a project. – less

Staff Officer (Current Employee), Towson, MDApril 10, 2014
The National Guard and the Army offer a variety of job challenges. During the year I have worked on multiple different projects from a computer forensic investigation to offering advice on counter-intelligence activities. That diversity is challenging and enjoyable as the work throughout the year changes. I have learned that I am flexible and can adopt – more... to last minute changes while performing in hectic environments. – less
