The Army was a great experience for me to grow personally and professionally.
Pros: free food when working in the dining facility, getting to see new places, meeting new people, gaining personal growth.
Cons: being away from home and in a dangerous area of the world.
There was never a typical day at work. Things were always changing.
Sometimes I worked in a Dining Facility, helping my teammates to cook enough food to feed over 800 soldiers.
Other times I was keeping track of the money in the administration office, and keeping track of the numbers of soldiers coming through the facility.
I learned to always maintain – more... self-discipline, to listen closely and ask questions when unsure of an order, to execute tasks given as efficiently as possible, and to be a member of a team.
Management was decent. Some were better than others, and some were just mind-blowingly great.
My co-workers were a support net for each other. We had each other's backs and made sure we completed our objective together.
The hardest part of the job was the being away from home so often.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to see new places. – less
