Men beware!
CYSS Maintenance/MVO (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXAugust 19, 2014
Pros: steady paycheck
Cons: lack of respect, too many female egos to deal with. no room for advancement
I was a Maintenance/MVO for CYSS. The job is boring, you run out of things to do, the Director and Assistant Directors of the facility think they are better than you in every aspect! You will be treated like dirt and will not get any respect from females for the simple reason that CYS is 90% females and 10% males, they look down on you. Your best bet – more... would be to go the CYPA route if you really want to work with CYSS. – less

Human Resources Specialist (Former Employee), all around the worldAugust 19, 2014
My typical day in the Army was very challenging. Their were always things that came up last minute and deadlines that needed to be meet however we were trained very well for it. My co-workers were very helpful and always there when I needed them. The hardest part of the job was that I was on duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Being a leader in the military – more... you job is never over. The most enjoyable part of my job was to watch my soldiers mature into professionals. – less

Multiple Launch Rocket Systems Crew Member (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXAugust 19, 2014
Pros: extremely good benefits, very good schedule
Work schedule is consistent. I learned many different aspects about my specific M.O.S. My Sgt's were very good, a few learned how all their soldiers worked and used that to direct the soldiers efforts more effectively. In the military your peers become like your brothers and sisters.The hardest part of the job was also the most fun part, various training – more... exercises, loading and unloading the HEMTT, and field exercises. – less

Good Experience
Logistics Manager (Former Employee), El Paso, TXAugust 19, 2014
Pros: travel, training new soldiers, life skills.
Cons: deployments, constantly changing hours, bad leaders.
Overall it was a good life experience. I was able to see the world and grow as a person while learning and honing valuable life skills. A typical day would vary depending on environment. The Management was good for the most part, like any other place of work there are some better than others. The same thing can be said about co-workers. The hardest – more... part of my job was never having a set schedule and also combat. The most enjoyable part of my job was training new Soldiers the things I had learned, and seeing the world. – less

The army life is a difficult life. You'll gain a lot of experience in things you'd otherwise not have access to, but it's a very regimented and dictatorish in nature. It's not for everyone.

Cargo Specialist
88-H Cargo Specialist (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 18, 2014
Pros: benefits, retirement, education
Cons: time consuming, challenging, travel
A typical day in the Army Transportation Corp is very early and very fast pace. Training needs to take place in a very restricted window of time. I learned how important communication plays a role on how effective the training schedule will be. Without my co-workers the job will be slower and room for error will increase. My co-workers are very insightful – more... and motivated to get the job done early in order to uphold the commanders reputation of being on-point world wide. The hardest part of the job would be training 300 soldiers in two days out of the month with limited resources. With the Army downsizing, a lot of funding and resources are not available so there is an abundance of borrowing forklifts, trucks and other equipment from our sister company. The most enjoyable part of my job would be knowing that I am training individuals and giving them skills that they can apply to their civilian lives and find stable employment. – less
