Troubleshooting and Maintenance on light and heavy military vehicles.
BRADLEY FIGHTING VEHICLE SYSTEM MAINTAINER (Current Employee), GlobalJuly 7, 2014
Pros: food and shelter
Cons: n/a
On a daily basis, work started at 5:30 a.m and continued until mission was complete. I assisted in maintaining and repairing numerous vehicles including light wheel to heavy track vehicles. A lot of nights ended upwards of 9:00 p.m. I worked various 24 hour guard duties.
I learned how to repair all aspects of a military vehicle as well as how to work – more... effectively with others to bring the mission to a success.
The most difficult part of the job were the hours, but some how we all managed to make it through to continue on the same way again and again.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being successful. It was very fulfilling to be able to repair something that someone needed in order to accomplish their mission. Success was key and I learned how to attain it every time i was given a task. – less

Hup, two, three, four!!
System Administrator (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXJuly 7, 2014
An Army soldier is simultaneously the easiest and hardest job there is. If you allow yourself to be taught and molded, if you have discipline or are willing to at least give it a whirl, if you want to work hard and play hard and live life to the fullest than an Army career is for you.

Dang, I should be a recruiter!

I recommend military service to – more... anyone. Serving the nation is a source of pride and honor that will last a lifetime. Learning an MOS is the best job training anywhere. The education and health benefits are insane. I have been deployed to two countries but in my travels to and fro I have seen almost 10 (albeit just the airports during pit stops, but still!). – less

Miltary Police (Former Employee), Fort Myer, VAJuly 7, 2014
While in Army the job is demanding, a great learning experience, and sometimes fun. You have to be disciplined and ready on the fly for the constant changes that happen daily. It can either be a career or a stepping stone but never a bad choice.

Adventurous, motivational and inspiring
Supervisor (Current Employee), Fort Riley North, KSJuly 7, 2014
Pros: life long friendships that can never be explained.
Cons: long periods away from family.
* Any given day your ability to handle situations are tested from minimal to critical.

* I learned to manage other people and myself in day to day activities and planning of tasks.

* As part of management i learned to ask more of myself which trickled down to those working for me, that they thrived to over achieve in every task that was asked of them.

* – more... My co-workers are the best at their jobs and learned how to deal with a number of different situations because of my relationship with them.

* The hardest part of my job is tearing myself away to go home at night.

* The most enjoyable part of my job the camaraderie. There is no better feeling than to bond with peple that comes from a totally different background and able to achieve a common goal. – less

Work normally from 5:30am to 5:00pm. Learned so much in the 11 1/2 years I worked for the Army. Being away from family is the hardest part. Knowing I was helping people and protecting our country was the most enjoyable part.

Motor Transport Sergeant (Former Employee), Fort Stewart, GAJuly 6, 2014
Pros: health benefits
Cons: no steady resident
The US Army is great for structure. Every morning you are doing some type of physical training. Work call you go to your respectable duty place. I worked in the motor pool, where all the trucks are located. I train soldiers how to properly take care of their equipment (trucks and supplies). Also I train soldiers how to operate and use heavy duty trucks – more... and keeping log of equipment being used. I supervise 8 + soldiers at a time to maintain discipline and structure. – less

Motor Transport Convoy/Security Instructor (Former Employee), Fort Eustis, VAJuly 6, 2014
Pros: benefits, physical fitness
Cons: war, effects of war, being judged by civilian employers after combat
A typical day at work consisted of early morning PT aka physical fitness at 630 in the morning followed b a full work day in the motor pool to retrieve vehicles to complete the mission by uploading merchandise from warehouse.I learned to work with my peers to help complete the mission correctly the first time.In the military you are always micromanaged – more... until you receive rank,being managed wasn't an issue because I always worked my hardest so the mission could be completed proficiently.I always love my peers until proven otherwise.I will always place the job/mission first and will never accept defeat.Its always intriguing when people who come from different walks of life can come together to complete a task.I will always do my all for my counterparts as long as all minds are on the goal, and thats task completion.The hardest part of the job was transporting goods in a war zone.The most enjoyable part was the bond and comradery each soldier had for one another. – less
