Bold and Daring workplace that allowed me to travel.
Automated Logistics Specialist (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKDecember 11, 2014
Pros: traveling, great benfits
Cons: intense work enviorment.
On a deployment to Afghanistan, a typical day was almost unpredictable. I enjoyed that aspect plenty. We would go on patrols through rural villages and towns, climb up and down the Hindu mountains. I had to interact and almost coexist with the local populous and they taught me a lot about their culture and way of life. The hardest part about being their – more... was growing homesick and being in dangerous situations at times. But on the positive end I enjoyed traveling and experiencing life in a way that I never could have had I not enlisted in the military. – less

Pros: i never had to figure out what i was going to wear to work. lol
Cons: the heat
My typical day at work started at 7 a.m. and ended when the tasks of the day were completed. I learned many skills, two being supervision and effective communication. I really enjoyed my co-workers and being part of a team. I suppose the hardest parts of the job was the rigorous training and being away from family. The most enjoyable parts of the job – more... were the finished products, the personal satisfaction, and being a part of something bigger than myself. – less
