The U.S. army is very structured. A typical day in the U.S. Army includes rigorous physical training, weapons training, testing your basic mental capacity. I enjoy every single day. I love all of my Co-workers or as we call them "battle-buddies". The hardest part of the job is being away from friends and family.The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I get the chance to prove what kind of person i am every single day.

Advance Individual Training for UH-60 Repairer (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 13, 2016
The US Army is not for everyone. I had lots of supervisors and coworkers. I cannot list every thing I loved or hated about the job. I had a passion for working on helicopters and a passion for providing medical attention to casualties.
I was a 24-7 soldier. I was responsible for a multi-million dollar aircraft and people's lives. The US Army provided me the skills and knowledge to perform my job at 110%.

Maintenance Team Leader (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 15, 2016
A soldier's training is never completely finished. In the modern Army, mundane tasks formerly used as punishment or busy work for soldiers, such as preparing food for mess service or basic cleaning, are often performed by civilians under contract with the Army. This frees up soldiers' time, allowing them to take ongoing training courses. They may go through additional AIT schools to diversify their training or take leadership courses. Entire units can take special training courses together. The Army's goal is to keep soldiers focused on improving their skills and abilities so they can perform their jobs perfectly when peoples' lives are on the line.
It is the outstanding career feel and I believe everyone should participate in serving their country.

My 8 years in the Service displays hands-on experience in even life threatening situations. I have thorough experience with securing Military networks through firewalls and proper IP addressing protocols. I have been blessed to get my hands on a plethora of Communications devices and have written and enforced policies to protect our network.
Times have been trying. It's hard to tell your Wife that you will see her in a year to put your life on the line. This was the hardest part but being a part of a brotherhood that knows the depth of service is an incredible feeling.

Good place to work great for a new diesel mechanic to start a career. Some of the technicians here will work with you and are great teachers to help fill in the blanks for Military soldiers just getting out of the service. I have learned a lot at Estes in the few months I have been working there due to the technicians working with me to help get me caught up on civilian equipment.

As with any job the people you work with some good some bad.
Communications and Electronics Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 15, 2016
Being a part of the Army is a lifestyle change that a person either adapts to or not. You are expected to adapt and overcome any obstacles and to complete any mission. I was given the opportunity to work around the country and the world to include Iraq and Okinawa, Japan. Working in a team environment is essential for success but you are also required to be successful as an individual.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – HSC, HHB, I CORPS, Fort Lewis, WA 98433 – July 25, 2016
I worked in the United States Armed Forces, one of the best jobs I ever had. I had trained, mentored, coached and lead Soldiers over 15+ years in different locations in the USA and over 4 Deployments on combat and support our troops in logistics. Teamwork is at plus, nothing get accomplished with out a good leadership. A typical day is to start with a 15 minutes meeting to brief my Soldiers in the tasking and how those tasking are going to be complete, is very important to assigned every Soldier to the tasks. After the day is done, I review it, but is important to lead and teach to let Soldiers know how the task is done.
Communication Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Stewart, GA – July 2, 2016
Work was always fun and informative you are always learning something new even if it has nothing to do with your job. Their are always people willing to each other and pust each other as well as motivating. The only thing that's hard about my job is not opening your mouth to ask for help especially when you have so many leaders around you willing to teach. If I could I would do it all over again I loved serving my country as a soldier.
Learning new things everyday and being around family
Chemical Technician (Former Employee) – Kansas – July 18, 2016
Work started and 6:00 am until the Job was done. I learned discipline, respect, loyalty, leadership, management skills. I learned how to identify a chemical and how it effects the body or environment, How to train fellow Soldiers in Chemical Warfare and how to keep them and everyone safe, trained how to use your gear in a situation that it was needed. I had excellent leadership and my co workers became some of the closest people I have in my life. Hardest part of my job was learning to be away from my family. Every morning when I put on my Uniform was the most enjoyable instant pride.
Great work experience and great time off. Organized work place.
Awards Clerk/Mailroom Chief (Former Employee) – Fort Polk, LA – July 12, 2016
I learned a lot from being a Human Resources Specialist, from working with Soldier's paperwork to doing ceremonies. I have enjoyed working for the Army because I was shown how to do everything with Human Resources. I know that it helped me with dealing with all situations that came to the office. I worked with great leaders and co-workers and did not have a problem with them. The only hardest thing that was needed to be done were reports that had to be in on time. Doing things last minute are the hardest but not impossible.
H.R. Sergeant (Current Employee) – Various – July 12, 2016
While the Army may or may not be for everyone, it is a great place to build a foundation. It does not matter if you plan on doing 20 years or 3 years the Army will instill a sense of discipline and professionalism that most young adults need. It gives you the opportunity to meet people who may become lifelong friends even family. There are certain stressors that one will have to overcome, but if you are able to keep your personal goals in mind you will be well on your way.

Fulfilling Position that developed ability to succeed
Executive Officer (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – July 4, 2016
As a military officer, I learned the value of teamwork, hard work, commitment to excellence, and the skills needed to lead people. As a young officer, I learned to leverage the skills and experience of the non-commissioned officers that I worked with to improve my capabilities as a leader, both technically and operationally. I was given the opportunity to continuously challenge myself in different positions of increasing complexity and responsibility.
Human Resources Manager, Administrative Officer (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – June 26, 2016
It is all what you make of it. You can be upset that you must get up early to do Physical Training, or you can look at it as a benefit that your employer not only pays you for the time, wants you to be fit and healthy, but the better you are the more opportunities you get. Even if you do not like some of the people you work with, it is always temporary because someone will transfer. There is no family like a military family.
Senior Ground Ordnance Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Sill, OK – July 8, 2016
No matter when or where you serve, it is the leadership that will make or break your career at any location. By not being recognized in the proper career progressing manber, no amount of awards or citations will get you promoted or retained in the service. When leaders fail you the organization will loose good people.
Great benefits, skill development and education options for those who take advantage of it.
team leader (Former Employee) – Ft. Hood, TX – July 6, 2016
I would wake up at 05:45 for formation, Then I would do 2 hours of PT(physical training), we would get 1 1/2 hours to clean up and eat before our next formation. We would do work that was planned out I.E.( going to work on the trucks, weapon training, skills training and cleaning our weapon).
All aspects of the job were hard but at the same time all aspects of the job were very enjoyable. I would say the worst thing about being in the military would be being away from my family.
Field Artillery Tactical Data System Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 19, 2016
I loved every moment being in the Army. I matured and found what I wanted in life. I met people and made friends that I will never forget. Unfortunately, the officers and leadership in my unit didn't focus on what's best for the soldiers and families of those soldiers but instead to further their own careers, which made me not want to pursue a career in the military. I will never forget what I have been taught and what I have seen and will continue to live the Army values.
Serious work environment with people that always push you to be better.
Logistical Support Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fort Carson, CO – July 11, 2016
Typical work day consist of physical fitness at 0600 and finishing at 0800. The work day starts at 0900 and I usually stay there until 1900 or longer. I have learned to manage personnel in the most proficient way possible. Dealing with stressful situations is a daily task, but has made me into a better leader. Working with the soldiers and leading them to success is the best part about the job.
