Supervised the Civilian and Military Personnel branches of Winn Army Community Hospital
Deputy Chief Human Resources Division (Former Employee), Fort Stewart, GAMay 21, 2015
A typical day at work started with a morning sync meeting with my team to discuss upcoming deadlines, statuses of assignments and any concerns involving our mission essential tasks that would need to be addressed. I learned how important it is for information to flow seamlessly both up and down the chain of authority, and that different situations call for different methods of action. I had an exceptionally talented staff. They worked very hard to ensure the division upheld the highest level of customer service around. The hardest part of my job was my departure from the military. I love helping people and that's what I did on a daily basis. The most enjoyable part of my job was watching each member of my staff receive either "Employee of the Quarter" or "Employee of the Year" two years in a row. They made me extremely proud.

Emergency Operation Center Manager (Former Employee), Fort Sill, OKMay 21, 2015
Great job and great people. You need to look into the job you are getting into before you decide on that job. Typical days can range from 8 hrs to 24 hours. I learned Microsoft Office Skills. Management is good if you get with the right people. Co-workers can be good or bad. Working the long hours is the hardest part. Getting the money , medical, housing, and college benefits.

Productive and family based environment
Military Police (Former Employee), Moreno Valley, CAMay 21, 2015
Pros: Ability to grow and help subordinates or peers alike.
Cons: away from family.
The Army is an environment not for all individuals. There are rules and regulations in which need to be followed and conducted. As you advance in the ranks comes more responsibility, I finished my required time needed in the Army and got out with the rank of CPL. I was in charge of 4 soldiers in which I had to ensure that they were mentally and tactically proficient in their jobs and skills. I did monthly counseling's and ensured they were on track with civilian school and military schools as well. Over all it helped me grow in to a more understanding person and a great leader, these traits I can share with anyone in life and in any work force that I encounter.

Field Problem
12B Combat Engineer (Former Employee), Bamberg, BYMay 21, 2015
Pros: working with an excellent group of people, area, and experience
Cons: weather
We had a 30 day field problem were the objective was to conquer the enemies position. My original team was only able to complete half of this task. My sergeants were eliminated in the field problem and I was the only one left from my team, where I was re-equipped with a new team and we proceeded to the objective. Because of my expertise and knowledge at my job we were able to push through the objective to help in the ultimate objective of conquering the enemies position. The hardest part of that job was getting a new group of individuals to execute as a team and that team having total trust in me to get them through the obstacle. The most enjoyable part to that problem was the accolades, awards and personal recognition for accomplishing such a task
