High Stress Enviorment with great benefits, and learning enviorment.
Chemical Specialist (74D) (Current Employee) – Michigan City, IN – August 25, 2017
A typical day at work includes morning PT (fitness training), followed by personal hygiene. The work day starts following, at 0730. My roles included; sensitive items inventories, cyclic inventories (monthly), managing items incoming from other units (lateral transfers), and working on training plans with other leaders to plan accordingly for next Battle Assembly.
The management structure is based off what Unit an individual is attached to, every unit varies. I would say communication is the biggest lack in the military.
Another good statistic in the military is the different cultures of ethnicities from all over the world. This gives various options, and opportunities to pursue new ways to train soldiers.
The hardest part of the job is, the way the communication works between higher leaders. For example, one Officer could say, "You need to do this." While doing this said task, another person of higher rank than you could confront you of doing this task, and say your doing it wrong, or question why you are doing said task.
The most enjoyable part is working with the soldiers, learning them as a person, and seeing their strong points. Depending on your time in, you can watch them grow as a leader.
Great benefits, a career based job, builds atrributes for future oppurtunities
