Excellent way to learn a new skill
Sergeant (Former Employee), ItalyJune 3, 2015
The Army was a good life with the ability to pick a job you want and get all the training for free. It helps to mature those who come in young or those who have little real world experience.

Really Loved It
Logistics Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYJune 3, 2015
Pros: Great job security
Cons: Deployments
It was a typical 9 to 5 job basically. Only difference is we got up a little earlier to do physical training. The hardest part was the deployments. Being away from your family for so long and the danger you're in.

Taught me many valuable life lessons and applicable skills
Unit Supply Specialist (Former Employee), KansasJune 2, 2015
Pros: Creates or enhances mental toughness, brings out the best in you if you let it.
As a logistics specialist my typical day consisted of morning PT and maintaining logistical documents for the unit commander. I learned the Army values such as integrity and selfless service which though I didn't realize it at the time , helped me greatly with my future business endeavors. Hardest part of the job was adapting to the unpredictable work hours.

Mechanic/Squad Leader (Former Employee), us armyJune 2, 2015
typical day at work would be starting with a meeting to see what needed done for the day, letting junior solders know what they had to do. Go to meetings as well as looking up parts verifying that what the solider said was wrong was right. Also I would have to do counseling on my solders.

Pros: Education, Benefits, Pay
Cons: Family Stability
Working in the Army has been the best experience I will have ever been priviledged to be a part of in my life. The experience and opportunities have completely outdone my expectations. I am proud to be able to say that I served with some of the bravest people in the United States of America to defend our land.

Proud to have served my country
E4/Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TexasJune 2, 2015
Pros: Serving my country
Cons: Leaving home
Hard to explain a typical day, when in the states each day we would conduct training to help prepare for upcoming deployment to Iraq. While in Iraq, everyday we were conducting missions and patrols of surrounding areas relevant to the intelligence we were receiving. I learned many things while in the Army that I still apply today. One of the main things was the discipline that I took on from my time in the service. I've dealt with a lot of different fellow soldiers and made life long friends from all that we have dealt with. I still talk to most of them to this day. The hardest part of my job was leaving home and fighting a war. That feeling of not knowing what happens each day I went outside the wire was a feeling hard to explain. The most enjoyable part of my job was upon returning home and seeing how proud my family and friends were of what I have done.

Combat Medic/Healthcare Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Leonard Wood, MOJune 2, 2015
This work is not for the weak of mind or faint of heart. Expect to be hurt and don't cry about it. Be resilient, vigilant, and versatile. You will be put in several different environments. Focus on doubling, you need to have a life outside of work and take the uniform off when you're home. Having a family and support system is vital because not having someone at home to watch your back and help you when the work day is done is a factor in soldier/veteran suicide.

Honorable and Routine scheduled work
Sergeant First Class/ Manager (Former Employee), Fort Bliss, TXJune 2, 2015
Pros: early 20 year retirement
Cons: leaving family for extended periods of time
Daily work consists of constant accountability of numerous people to report statistics through proper channels. giving direction to people with minimal guidance and letting them accomplish their task without an exact to do list. Follow up on the tasks to ensure if there are any questions or concerns they were able to get an answer clearly from the source and not misinterpreting any details. The hardest part of the career was trying to explain how to do certain things to new young officers and help them understand to do things better when their education level is higher than yours. The most enjoyable part of the US Army is the camaraderie and the honor of doing it.

Human Resource Specialist (Current Employee), Fort Campbell, KYJune 2, 2015
Pros: Good eduaction, housing, and health benefits
Cons: Bad leadership, low pay, highly taxed
The Army has taught me alot of good valueable skills over the years, but the leadership has become very selfish, unsupportive, and greedy. I want to take my skills that I've learned fom my years of service, and put them to good use as a civilian.
