I felt I was well trained and that I could quickly and easily perform any task set before me. Through all the arduous bureaucracy and the most difficult times I really enjoyed the comradery. At times it was the lack of teamwork that made the job hardest, but there was always a way. Good experience.

Trainee (Former Employee), Fort Jackson, SC – September 15, 2014
Pros: great health benefits, learning atmosphere, great coworkers, and varied jobs.
Cons: occasional sleep deprivation, harsh punishment, and long work days.
A typical day at work was consisted of waking up at 3 am, falling into formation, and going to chow. From there the holdovers (people getting sent home for various reasons) would go back to the company and go down when called. From there, we would go to different job locations, which would include warehouse work, filing, cleaning, issuing uniforms, – more... or escorting trainees to various locations. Probably my favorite part of the job was working in CIF and working in a psuedo-assembly line where holdovers would fill duffel bags with Camelbacks and Eye-Pro. The was always the most fun job and I loved the people I would get assigned to work with. The hardest part of the job was probably working through sleep deprivation some days. – less
