In the US Army you are given the opportunity to be as successful as you want. Leadership, loyalty and respect are just a few of many traits that were learned. I have developed a deep sense of responsibility that will carry me far in the civilian world.

Warrant Officer (Transporation/Logistics) (Former Employee), OverseasApril 1, 2015
Pros: Family support, benefits and ofters many opportunties
Cons: many deployments
Retired with 27 years in the U.S. Army. My typical day at work was fully engaged and highly motivated to train and complete all mission assigned. My co-workers always seek for new ways to complete our mission. The hardest part of the job was leaving my family for so many years, but the most enjoyable part of the job was servicing my country and being a part of trying to keep our country safe from any harm....

best military and only military to work for
INFANTRY SOLDIER (Former Employee), CAMarch 31, 2015
a typical day is getting up at 5:30 am for physical training and then eating breakfast and then on to training for the day. My military brothers would have your back at any moment. The hardest part were the long nights, but it was all worth it!

Signal Support System Specialist (Former Employee), FT. Stewart, GaMarch 31, 2015
Pros: 90 min lunch break, free health benefits and dental.

From 2008 to 2010 I was part the Battalion S-6 Information management officers. Where I troubleshoot the computers and Laptop that belonged to our unit. 2011 to 2012 I was moved to the company headquarter to continue as a Information management officer and as a human resource personnel. During this time I gained experience in using Microsoft words, excel, power point and Outlook. 2013 to 2014 I transferred to the Battalion S-3 where I learned how to file claims for travels and requesting school enrollment for soldiers to have a career advancement.

HUMAN RESOURCES SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYMarch 31, 2015
Pros: Benefits, meeting new people, long lunches, helping others
Cons: job/life balance, unorganized, deployments
A typical day at work is 6:30 am mandatory physical training, at 8:30 am you are released to shower and change and then come back to work at 9:30. From 9:30 to 5:00 I would take care of customer service, answer and direct phone calls, help soldiers make changes to their life insurance policy as well as helping them with any other personnel accounting information.

What I learned from the job was resiliency, how to adapt to a fast paced environment, to learn each job I was taught quickly and to help everyone the best of my ability.

As a Human Resources Specialist you are taught time management is something that is very important. You have tasks handed to you from every angle and there is little down time between tasks.

My co-workers all came from different back grounds. At first it was a challenge and we didn't communicate to each other. After a couple weeks we opened up to each other and created a system so that we were able to get our tasks completed in a shorter amount of time.

The hardest part of my job was the job work and life balance. It was very difficult for me to balance the two out considering we were on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Almost monthly we would do a 24 hour duty. Along with the deployments and scares of what can happen overseas, and the job being so unorganized at all times.

The most enjoyable part of my job was helping others. I have a passion for helping others and to make their lives easier. I also really enjoy meeting new people.

Texas Army National Guard NCO (Current Employee), Austin, TXMarch 31, 2015
Pros: Everything you learn is great and useful and free
Cons: Lots of uniform time and many deployments
Enlisting in the U.S Army, going to training with the best humans; getting trained by the best military personnel ever was a real privilege.

Learning things and being able to open my eyes to so much which I didn’t know in the past. Parents do not know everything so they cannot teach you everything.

Always a different day
Unit Administrator (Current Employee), Perrine, FLMarch 31, 2015
Pros: no weekend work
Cons: long days
A typical day at work is anything but typical, there are variations of issues and concerns that must be addressed daily. They range from financial to personal. I learn something new everyday as it is difficult to get all the educational portion of the job complete when needed so it's a learning experience every day. My team is the hardest working team in the Command. I work with some very intelligent individuals and just being on a good team like this makes my day worth it.
