Great job, balance between home and work was terrible
Team Leader (Former Employee), Korea – July 29, 2015
The life as a military police officer was a great one. Working with subject matter experts provided a great learning experience. Proving yourself capable of trust and responsibility yielded the opportunity to show that to your superiors and move up the ranks. The time I spent at work was extensive, leaving little time for my personal life.
Great opportunity for those who are unsure where they would like to start a career

I served in the military an alike many jobs you will have those days that you just dont want to go to work but the military has so much to offer you so the pros outweigh the cons and you will be introduced to many different cultural backgrounds to which you can grasp a further knowledge on the ways others live an conduct a daily routine.
A typical day when not deployed is to go to physical training in the morning for an hour. Start the day at 9 am for work, then end the day around 4:30. No time frames are set in stone. Could start work at 5 am and end at 10pm. Just depends on the day.
I personally like the military environment because it helped me to see what I could do past what I could see myself. Learning a new valuable job trade really just helped me to further my own personal – more... value in life. It's something I use in my life every day, even if I don't know that I am. The Army imprints discipline into your heart, and mind. Now that I have the tools of success to work where ever I may, there is not any place of buisness that has too many people working for them to not accept a highly motivated, driven, and successful person as myself. – less
Logistics Manager (Former Employee), Lakehurst, NJ – July 29, 2015
Pros: Free Health Care
Cons: Shooting and being shot at
Most days usually involve ensuring the personnel that worked for me did not have any issues that they needed assistance with (such as home problems). Managing the maintenance of equipment from other units, – more... contracts in other locations that we were responsible for maintaining, reviewing and correcting reports in preparation for weekly senior meetings and conference calls (about every other day). The hardest part were managing the Soldier issues with duty requirements (keeping them out of trouble). The most enjoyable was watching the Soldiers enjoy what they were trained to do. – less
Good work environment with a good team to get a days task done

Information Management Officer (Current Employee), Fort Bragg, NC – July 29, 2015
Its about growing as an individual but being an asset to the whole team. Working in the US Army as an Information Technology Specialist is challenging and I love that. I like thinking on my feet and solving sudden issues with grace.
