92Y Unit Supply Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Bliss, TX – February 9, 2016
The us army offers the opportunities for growth as well as the knowledge to support individuals as they transition out into the civilian world. Having comrades in the armed forces are about more than being in the midst of co workers, it is and will always be about a brotherhood. Working with family is what makes this job enjoyable and having to leave them is what makes it the worst.

Mechanic (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 8, 2016
The job was mostly simple here is something wrong with this piece of equipment find out what is causing it and replace it. I learned Heavy Equipment repair. I was left in the dark a lot because management didn't know what was going on. There wasn't anything notable about my co-workers. There wasn't anything too difficult while working there. The most enjoyable part was being able to work with my hands.

Automated Logistics Specialist/ Section Leader (Current Employee) – Fort Stewart, GA – February 7, 2016
A typical day at work for myself is usually very busy, providing customer care, meeting deadlines, leading personnel, attending meeting. I have learned how to prioritize things, everything may not be done immediately but the most important should be completed first. I've lucked out with a great team in my current job, the personnel are cooperative and understand the importance of completed the job right. The only problem I've had is personnel arriving a couple of minutes late to work.
The hardest part of the job is the deployments for 6 months, I can deal with being away from home but 6 months at a time was quit much. The best part of my job is that I meet people on a daily basis, people of all cultures, beliefs, race, the diversity of people in my current job. I have a chance to learn things from different people from all over the world.
Productive and good teaching/learning enviornment.
Squad Leader (Sergeant) (Current Employee) – Fort Polk, LA – February 7, 2016
A typical day of work consisted of physical training whether it would be running 2-4 miles every other day or muscular endurance training every other day as well. And this would begin at 6:30am then rolling over to the actual working portion of the day at 9:30am. I've learned the value of teamwork outside of a athletic setting and I better understand leadership and have learned management skills. There is truly no hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable is looking back on the entry position that I entered as and seeing the development of myself and others around me.
Wake up to go do some physical training for about 1 hour a nd15 minutes then I shower eat breakfast and go to work so my day normally starts at 0600 until 1700. My work day can consist of doing inspection, giving a brief, doing a lot of admin data on a daily basis and following up on support or request for support, make sure that personnel's or equipment are in the right place at the right time failing is not and option. As for training I just have to make sure training is done to standard not to time because all I do is supervise because of the rank I have earn.
My actions always speaks for itself.
