Logistic Supply Team Leader (Former Employee), Fort Benning, GASeptember 1, 2015
Pros: great pay
Cons: long hours sometimes
Worked 9-6, how to turn in parts, receive parts, stock parts, inventory. Also learned to manage and train over 20 people. Also learned how to manage different sections in the warehouse. The most enjoyable part is working with different soldiers and teaching their jobs.

It has it's ups and downs.
Assistant Brigade Intelligence Officer (Full Time) (Former Employee), McChord AFB, WAAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Four Day Weekends
Cons: lack of sleep
It's a very dynamic workplace environment. Often the training that I received didn't often directly translate to the work I actually did. There was much that revolved around outside tasking that were necessary for logistical support. The management for the most part was supportive and placed me in positions to advance my career, but there are also toxic leadership that don't care about taking care of their people, but more advancing their own careers. Best co-workers around, we would lay down our lives for each other. The hardest part of the job was the uncertainty that was given at short notice and required leaving family for an unknown time. The best part of the job was the health benefits.

Deputy Director of Operations (Current Employee), Fort Carson, COAugust 31, 2015
The Army like a lot of professions out there is what you make of it. Is it more demanding? Yes, it is...but that is to be expected given the profession. It is also a very rewarding profession that offers great benefits, comradery, e sprit de corps, you name it. The opportunities to advance are available, the more you put into it and work on your own development as well as that of those around you, the better off you will be.

Pros: Traveling, Meet New People, Exercising

Excellent work places where people forge a lifetime bond. Not all about the numbers, but how you grow and develop. Exploring the world and teaching your body to pass a limitation that you didn't think was possible.

Tactical Wire Specialist (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INAugust 31, 2015
Pros: The best way to get training and see the world
Cons: No cons miss.
We would get up early in the morning do PT then come back and get cleaned up. Go have breakfast and then head off to the comm-section. We would over see the cleaning and maintenance of the communication equipment so they would be ready in moment notice. I always had a good group of guys who was in the comm-section and I miss it.

Opprtunity to preform various duties and take charge of projects
Military Intelligence (Former Employee), Fort Bliss, El Paso TXAugust 31, 2015
Pros: 30 Days paid vacation, health care, military base amenities, paid housing and opprtunites to go to foreign countries.
Cons: Random schedules, 24 hour work days, last minute jobs at close of business, finding time with family and submitting to a separate system of law.
A good experience to learn and grow from. Teaches the importance for structure, how to delegate and working as a team. Your able to undestand the importance of leadership and the need to recieve personal training to allow you to take advantage of opprtunites to take charge. You learn to keep track of many different parts and keep accountability and accurate record of supplies. A nice perk is that you are paid to to workout and stay physically fit. There are opportunities to push yourself and to standout from others. You find new friends and experiences that you could not have in any other circumstances.

Combat Engineer (Current Employee), Fort bragg NCAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Great learning experience, family oriented, healthcare, and housing
Cons: low wage, alot of long nights
No day is ever the same being a combat engineer in the army. On a typical Monday, we do physical training at 0600, then we break for breakfast. After breakfast we meet at our motor pool where all the vehicles are, and we conduct maintenance on our vehicles making sure everything is running properly. At around 1100 we break again for lunch, then 1300 we meet at the company and plan for any field training we have for the week or upcoming weeks. After prepping for the field we get released at or around 1700

You're constantly busy doing things not in your job description. On the bright side you get to be around people from different cultures. So it makes getting to know others and yourself a lot more entertaining.

Was stationed at Fort Hood also know as the great place I have no idea why
Ammunition Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Free housing, food, clothing, and tons of excercise
Cons: tons of excercise, food was not that great, housing sucked, and clothing constantly ripped
Typical day was sitting at my company for 8 hours waiting to get orders to do something. I learned a lot about warehousing and ammunition. Co-workers where all great. Management was ok most of the time I wouldn't see my first Sgt or Cpt until we did a change of command then I saw both of them daily. The hardest part was being away from family for a year at a time. The most enjoyable was basic training or some know it as boot camp.
