13M (Artilary) (Former Employee) – Fort Jackson, SC – February 9, 2016
The Army had a lot to offer, but I felt like my best option however was to come home and stay home. They taught me a lot and I worked hard. It was good hard work. Very honest. They told you exactly what to do and you did it.
Senior Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Hunter Army Airfield, GA – February 9, 2016
My day would start around 0600 am. I would arrive early so that I would be able to check my email and make any changes that would need to occur for the day. My day would usually include at least one to two training or staff meetings. I had up to six Noncommissioned Officers that worked for me. They would have to brief me on the status of their sections once in the morning and again in the afternoon. One of the hardest parts of my job was balancing time, personnel, and the availability of funds. The best part of my job was when I would finish a task on time, with no delays. 100% customer satisfaction.
Some days would be up to 16 hour workdays and I was on call 24/7.
Corrections Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fort Leavenworth, KS – February 9, 2016
A typical work day consist of managing the movement of inmates as well as staff members entering and exiting the facility. The most important thing I learned in the Army is to be able to work together as a team. I also learned a great deal of what it takes to be a leader. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with my co-workers and the sense of security I have knowing that they will back me up under any circumstance.
Whole new life experience, totally changed my outlook on life.
Infantryman (Former Employee) – Fort Drum, NY – February 9, 2016
A typical day at the work consists of us getting up at 0700 for morning formation. From there we conduct PT which can be anything from log runs to snow shoe hikes. The rest of our day was usually pretty boring, consisting of weapon and gear layouts and much un needed standing around waiting to get let off from work. Best part of the job was definitely deployment. Nothing could beat the feeling of getting into a firefight. You depend a lot on the brothers to your left and right and place your life in their hands while they do the same to you. One of the hardest things to do was see the upbringing that these children endured. They really had no chance and it was sad to see them struggle on a daily bases. But i will never forget the camaraderie and brotherhood we shared for each other while over there, that was one of the more difficult things too, getting out and pretty much losing all your brothers that you're used to seeing everyday, i guess it was something that was just unexplainably difficult that we all endured. But i wouldn't change a single thing about my experience in the Army, it definitely opened my eyes and showed me just what kind of world we live in.
Carried a machine gun, didn't pay taxes while deployed
long missions and walks, the heat got up to 156 degrees. We lost 3 of our comrades over in Afghanistan
This is the best job i've ever have, i should have stayed in. I was in a unit that kept changing and the promotion system was not right, but after i got out learned that i could have went to another unit.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – February 9, 2016
A typical day in my position would be dealing with problems that arose and required immediate attention. I learned how to think on my toes and make sound decisions. Management consisted of making sure employees received their benifits and entitlements, and teaching them what was expected. My co-workers were very knowledgeable and we always worked side by side. The hardest part of my job was leaving my family, however, I would do it again if needed. The most enjoyable part was working as a team and completeing any task given to use.

Army Reserves (Former Employee) – Fort Jackson, SC – February 9, 2016
Being in the army taught me how to be resilient, to always have a positive mind set to move forward no matter what comes your way. The hardest part was being away and switching your life style to become a well trained soldier.
HUMINT Collection Team Leader (Current Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – February 9, 2016
Over the past 16 years the Army has undergone a lot of transformations. A typical day starts with 6:30 A.M. physical training, return to work at 9:00 A.M. Depending on what you job is you could be doing that or doing random task like area beautification. As A HUMINT Professional we cannot utilize our skills actively inside the United States, so we were either conducting training to keep or skills sharp or engaging in menial tasks around the company.
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.
Senior Advisor and Group Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fort Benning, GA – February 8, 2016
Love my time and experiences in the Army. Just did not want to move my family again. I would recommend the Army to anyone. My day starts at 0410 and usually ends around 1800ish during garrison and while deployed it is a 24/7 job.
Teamwork and watching subordinates grow on their journey
