Postal Clerk (Current Employee) – Moreno Valley, CA – February 11, 2016
A typical day includes physical training, and any online military training. I've learned many things from safety courses I've taken including precautions and awareness of driving and things I can face on the battlefield. A very professional environment describes the soldiers I work with, always looking out for each other is one of the important things our leaders stress on us. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting close to my coworkers so if we ever deploy we're all comfortable with eachother.
Fun if you want to experience new and Exciting cultures and places

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – February 10, 2016
A typical day in the U.S army starts off with an accountability formation followed by physical training. After physical training one would have work call which typically is from 9 a.m to 6 p.m. My workload included filling prescriptions for military personnel and civilians, supplying the hospitals clinics with medication, mixing medications to fill I.V bags, stocking medication in the pharmacy, and checking expiration dates to lessen product loss. My co-workers included military and civilian which made it very diverse. The hardest part of the job was transporting large amounts of medications. The enjoyable part of the job was customer appreciation of my work.

Chemical Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Bliss, TX – February 10, 2016
A typical day at work begins with a lot a maintenance of equipment that gets used on a regular bases. I learned to be for organized and to take initiative and be more of a leader. Our NCOs took care of there soldiers and listened to there issues they might of had and handled them the best way that they could. My co-workers were very responsible and always helped out with whatever needed to get done without any hesitation. The hardest part about the job for me was being so far apart from family and friends. The most enjoyable part was deployment, and being able to travel to different parts of the world and around the country.
