Motor Transportation Operator (Former Employee), Fort Carson, CODecember 15, 2014
I loved everything about my time in the military except leaders who only want the best for them and the select few they liked and favoritism was a big reason why a lot of people never got to be promoted and other got it when they shouldn't have.

As an Army Specialist
PatriotLaunchingMissileEnhancedOperatorMaintainer (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TexasDecember 15, 2014
Pros: the benefits are worth it. you work hard, and get rewarded. weekends off.
Cons: there are no cons.
Typical day at work would be 05:00 wake up for Physical Training (P.T.) After P.T., is breakfast at 07:30am-09:00. At 09:00 formation, we would start our workday. Everyday in my unit was something different task that we (the Unit) had to do. For instance we would be working in the motor pool all day, the next 24hr. shifts, or working and checking our – more... military equipment. We would not end our day until 17:00-18:00.
What I have learned in the United States Army Active Duty, is the communication is key. I have had many different squad leaders (bosses) demanding the same standard for communication. The military has also taught me discipline and to raise my standards to the highest quality of work possible.
Once my squad leader has had full confidence in me to manage others, I was managing three different soldiers at once. My task at hand was to make sure their pay is correct, make sure they get to P.T. on time, etc..
The hardest part of the job was how demanding it can be, but it was well worth the work.
The most enjoyable part of the job was that sense of accomplishment I get when I have work hard for whichever the task may be. Also, I love to work hard and have a demanding job. If I had the chance to enlist again, I would do it all over again. – less

Recruiter (Current Employee), Port Saint Lucie, FLDecember 15, 2014
The Army is a more than a job. It is a way of life. Everyday is different. If there is one thing you can count on, it is that things are always changing. The work can be hard, there are challenges, and sometimes even risks, but the rewards are worth it.

Good experience
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee), Tacoma, WADecember 15, 2014
Pros: learning to overcome adversity. physical and mental fitness emphasis
Cons: long deployments. uncomfortable body armor.
Being in the Army helps an individual gain interpersonal skills that they may have not learned in civilian life. I don't mean to sound like an advertisement that you would see on television. However, serving in the military is one part of your life that you can cherish and be proud to have been apart of.

Great group of guys to work with.
Operations Manager (Former Employee), Fort Leonard Wood, MODecember 15, 2014
Pros: healthcare
Cons: the army is drawing down so there is little room for advacement for engineers.
I love my job in the Army. I train my soldiers to run all types of equipment to complete major projects for the Army. I save the Army over $1,000,000 every year on projects so they do not have to use a outside source to get the work done. I love getting big projects for my soldiers so that they can learn to be proficient on all of the heavy equipment. – more... The hardest part of the job is making sure we have enough money to complete every project i tell people that i can get done for them. – less

One of my best life experiences
Rifleman/Team Leader (Former Employee), Fort Bragg, NCDecember 15, 2014
I had a multitude of jobs within this time frame. From a basic rifleman to a team leader. I served in a few different units and deployed twice to Iraq. I learned how to be a leader and work with even the people I didnt neccessarily like. I had a multitude of different leadership, some good and some bad. The hardest part was getting used to being away – more... from family and not being able to make some basic life decisions. The best part was the experience and comraderie that was shared throughout the ranks. – less

United States Soldier
Human Resources Specialist (Current Employee), Fort Drum, NYDecember 15, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits, job security, leadership experience
Cons: your life is in danger
It is hard, demanding, and sometimes overwhelming however it is one of the most rewarding careers in America today. Although it can be risky, it is worth it to give it a try, even for just one term. You will come out with a lot more than what you went in with.

Interesting and Learning Experience Every Day
Receptionist/Veterinary Technician (Former Employee), Fort George G Meade, MDDecember 14, 2014
Pros: comradery, benifits, education, holidays
Cons: new military, supervisors
A typical day at work would be doing physical fitness from 0700 to 0800, and coming into work at 0900. Would either being running treatment rooms seeing owners and patients, or being up front acting as a receptionist, or would being doing paper correspondence. I learned a lot throughout my time being there and throughout the military. I learned how – more... to be more social, be more confident, and how to interact with people. Became more of an experienced veterinary technician. The hardest part of my job for me involved the Rabies Management Program, some of the owners of the animals were not very compliant at times, but we made it work. The most enjoyable part of my job was satisfying customers, helping animals, and enjoying working with my co-workers. – less
