Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Knox, KY – July 22, 2016
Being a soldier has its perks. I loved wearing the uniform and being proud of serving my country. But I also hated the fact that I had horrible leadership. They didn't give too damns about me and didn't try to help me out when it came to PT.
Very professional, good work force, very efficient, productive, fast paced, team work, management is very good
Diesel Mechanic (Current Employee) – Arizona – July 22, 2016
Typical day of work would be maintaining vehicles and trailers. I learn new things everyday management is very strict and straight forward. My coworkers are great to work with hardest part of my job is removing trailer tires. Most enjoyable part would be learning new things.
I have done many jobs during my 17 years in the Army. Most notably my deployment to Iraq in 2004. I had the opportunity to experience various cultures and had the chance to talk with some of the locals. In my daily duties with the Army I work with a team and have formed a strong leadership bond with my fellow soldiers.
Love the people I work with and proud to serve my country
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fort Wainwright, AK – July 22, 2016
In my field in the U.S. Army, its a more technical and management line of work. I am in charge of the unit arms room that is valued in excess of $2.5 million dollars. I ensure that all the units equipment is maintained and ready to use at any given time. On a daily basis I work with high levels of management and advise them on scheduled and unscheduled maintenance while properly training personnel to achieve the standards. I enjoy mentoring personnel to strive and achieve their personal goals while help developing the next generations of leaders in the U.S. Army
Healthcare, Federal holidays, team building
long time away from the family, long hours of work

Sargeant (Former Employee) – US and Germany – July 22, 2016
It was the best job I ever had. I wished I would have stayed till retirement. Deployment sucked but you got to take the bad with the good. Got to travel all over the world on their dime and was paid for it. I would definitely do it again.
Ammunition Specialist (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 21, 2016
Mostly warehousing when in the states. When overseas a lot of logistics in providing ammunition across a large area of operations. Multiple supervisory positions as well as a management position in ensuring the accountability and movement of ammunition. Downsides are the large amounts of time away from home and family due to specific types of training. People you work with are extremely varied across many subcultures and aspects of our country. Management varies between individuals some really shouldn't be in the positions they are in and others are blessing in where they are due to how much they actually care about their employees. While many skill sets have been learned while working here, for certain people, there comes a time to move on and see what new opportunities are available.
A lot of benefits
Not meant for everyone, not always the best of care or equipment.
