Good job for some and not for others
Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee), Fort Hood, TXApril 20, 2015
Pros: Holidays off, job security
Cons: Long hours and under contract.
Every day is something new. You never know what the next day will bring. The days can very from a hard days work with long hours to a normal days work that's over before you know it. Some supervisors support time with family and others not so much. You will have a lot of difference experiences, some good and some not as much. You will learn many difference skills.

I don't have any regrets about being in the military as some may, it has been a productive and positive experience for me and like any job that harbors such responsibilities comes arduous times and a motivated work ethic to be responsible for yourself, your equipment and the people around you.

US Army Combat Medic Career
Senior Training Developer/Writer (Current Employee), Fort Sam Houston, TXApril 20, 2015
Pros: Team, Life long frienships developed, senior management
Cons: Extensive work hours, short suspenses
A typical day at work was fast paced with multiple tasks to complete. Team elements were always key to success and also made it much more enjoyable. Camaraderie is above reproach to the point I have life long friendships and honest extended family.

Management was at times challenging, but with team work and genuine care and concern of the team and mission; all was well and accomplished.

The toughest part of the job was multiple tasks coming in at the last minute, though rarely.

Later years of my career, I was assigned to Senior Level Operations and believe I was able to make positive effects which will be long term for the future US Army Combat Medic.

Fun, exciting job with lots of opportunities
Assistant Corps Transportation Officer (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TexasApril 20, 2015
The Army gave me numerous opportunities for advancement as well as education, the benefits are great and because of them I was able to take good care of my family.
I started out as a Private (E1) and ended my career as a Captain (O3) mainly due to the growth opportunities given to me.
The hardest part of the job is the deployments and having to be away from the family for so long in a foreign country where people are trying to kill you.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the time off when we got home from deployments. There is nothing hard about the Army, you show up in the right uniform at the right time and do the right thing.

Unlike any other experience
Healthcare Specialist/Combat Medic (Former Employee), Fort Stewart, GAApril 20, 2015
Pros: Excellent benefits, Plenty of room for advancement
Cons: Long Working Hours / Days, Strenuous Work Environments, Typically not well paid
As a veteran, the skills and experience gained throughout my medical career in the Army has proven to be an invaluable tool. The sheer amount of knowledge available to me has not been wasted. Let me start off by saying that while the expertise the military has given me came at a cost, the life lessons and deep understanding has been well worth the trade off. I have been able to touch people's lives in a meaningful way and it's caused a love of learning and helping people to grow inside of me that I never knew before.

Great place to work
Network Technician, Helpdesk Manager (Current Employee), Fort Drum, NYApril 20, 2015
Overall a great place to work. Great benefits and very family oriented. Spent a lot of time traveling as well as working inside the technical field. The overall atmosphere of the job was outstanding and had a great sense of team coordination. Hardest part about the job is the travel away from family. The most enjoyable would be the atmosphere and the ability to learn your job from hands on experience.

Best job I ever have
Platoon Sergeant (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXApril 20, 2015
Pros: Relashionships made along the way
Cons: Depoymets
Typical day at work was challenging and demanding. The military provided me with new skills I did not have. The ability to be a part of a team, a place to learn and grow as an individual and as a leader. My co-workers were people like me that came from different backgrounds and way of life looking to better themselves and to defend our country. It was the friendships made and the satisfaction of seeing other people achieve their goals.

Serving your country is not to be taken lightly. It's very rewarding, but very time consuming and unforgiving. You have to make a commitment.
