Start The Work Day Around 0900hrs.. PMCS all equipment and pull aqua-glo test on all trucks containing fuel.. Get trucks that aren't running to maintenance and try to work out the issues. Main mission was distributing fuel to the aircrafts and maintaining fuel effeciency.
A typical day in the Army Transportation Corp is very early and very fast pace. Training needs to take place in a very restricted window of time. I learned how important communication plays a role on how effective the training schedule will be. Without my co-workers the job will be slower and room for error will increase. My co-workers are very insightful – more... and motivated to get the job done early in order to uphold the commanders reputation of being on-point world wide. The hardest part of the job would be training 300 soldiers in two days out of the month with limited resources. With the Army downsizing, a lot of funding and resources are not available so there is an abundance of borrowing forklifts, trucks and other equipment from our sister company. The most enjoyable part of my job would be knowing that I am training individuals and giving them skills that they can apply to their civilian lives and find stable employment. – less
Chemical Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Drum, NY – August 18, 2014
Pros: organized, healthcare, school assistance
Cons: little free time
Normal work days from 7 a.m.-5 p.m., subject to change due to 24 hour guard duty. Always have classes available to teach soldiers different skills within the military or in society, Management worked with soldiers with not much supervision because the leaders could rely on the team to get the task at hand finished in a timely manner. Co-workers became – more... a family and helped another when in need, including myself. The hardest part of my job was being away from my family. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of me serving our country and the people close to me were proud of me. – less

Army Leader (Former Employee), Savannah GA – August 18, 2014
A typical work day as a soldier was challenging. Whether it was working in the motorpool preparing vehicles as a mechanic or daily leadership roles and a Sergeant. Nothing was really hard about this job because everyday was different.

Transportation Supervisor (Current Employee), Fort Stewart, GA – August 18, 2014
Pros: 1 and a half hour lunches
A typical work day would start off with my boss and I checking and returning emails. The transportation office in which I work consisted of two people. The best thing about this position is the boss I have. He goes above and beyond to make sure that I was taking care of. The worse part about it was that you was always waiting for other sections/shops – more... to complete your work. – less
