I learned my job technically and tactically.
Company Administrator/Recruiter/Career Counselor (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CANovember 27, 2014
Pros: work environment with the recruiters.
Cons: not being able to enlist people or give them the job the want, but don't qualify for.
I work with a great bunch of army recruiters who were not only professional, but good people to be around. The hardest part of the job was just arriving on time through all of the rush hour traffic. Also, it is not possible to enlist everyone in to the United States Army. Some people are just not qualified or a good fit for the organization. It was – more... hard to turn people away who truly wanted to serve. I learned how to engage a diverse group of people and handle stress successfully. – less

Dont do it
Sergeant (Former Employee), Fort Carson, CONovember 26, 2014
The army is where dreams go to die. You think you are going to save the world or have an opportunity to go to school on active duty? Get that out of your head right now. If its something you really want to do go for it, but be ready to hate life. Chain of command is usually does not care about your life.

Typical Day at Work
Automated Logistics Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYNovember 26, 2014
Pros: work and meet different personalities, cohesion among peers
Cons: sometimes no lunch, worked on holidays when everyone else was off
My job in the Army was supply personnel. On a typical day when i work in the warehouse if i work in the Turn-in section, i would come in and check my log book for appointments for the day. i would then go the the parts turn in bins and make sure all equipment was appropriately sorted out and ready to go to its perspective location. If i work in the – more... storage section, i would go to stock control and get all my bin tickets and excess equipment prepared to be stored. I would then conduct inventory on all equipment, place parts in its correct storage bin and go to my SAM/E box and update system. When i worked in the Issue section, in the morning i would come in and check with receiving to see what parts came in for our customers. If i had parts i would put them in its correct bins. All of our customers were broken down and identified by DODAACs which stands for Department of Defense Activity Address Code. Some units had more than one. After sorting parts, i would notify all our customers by phone and let them know to come and retrieve their parts. These are typical work day activities for the different sections i work in while doing my job. – less

Supply Sergeant was a fun and challenging that require great focus.
Supply Sergeant (Current Employee), Camden, SCNovember 26, 2014
I have learned a lot from being a 92y10 in the Army National Guard.
On a day to day basis as a Supply Sergeant I was required to work with and communicate with higher personnel such as my Captain and other working parts of my unit with graphs, diagram and visual aides to track all shipping equipment.
I follow direct and nonadjustable instructions from – more... safety manuals, regulations and policies from the State and Military codes while meeting deadlines, along with additional instructions that may have been given from the Captain and higher ups.
Multi-tasking was a must, keeping my soldiers gainfully employed and completing all paperwork needed for actions throughout the day while meeting all deadlines.
Even with me working in a high stress work environment I was able to remain focused on required missions while maintaining a calm composure.
Although I was in charge of a small team of soldiers I ensured respect was given up and down the chain of command, thus creating a positive work environment for all.
One of the hardest parts of my job was the last minute changes that required immediate action, but left me with little to no time to complete the task at hand. A majority of the time I was able to complete the mission, but this rush created hostility within the work environment which I also had to address simultaneously.
The most enjoyable moments was to complete my tasks and the fact that my work remained flawless. – less

Pros: world travel
Cons: nearly killed on several occasions
I was in the Army at the height of the Vietnam was. Worked a hospital in Japan for two years. Processed incoming patients from Vietnam. Worked air evacuation when patients shipped to US.
It was difficult to work with patients who were frequently severely mutilated or injured, usually angry or resentful about their experiences.
Eventually, out of survivors – more... guilt, i suppose, I volunteered to go to Vietnam. I ended up working for the Division Surgeon of the 9th Infantry division. – less
