Productive, Life changing place to work
Reserve Component Sergeant (E5) (Current Employee), Fayetteville, NCJuly 3, 2015
Pros: dedication to service, stable pay, healthcare
Cons: long hours, family separation, combat zones
On a typical day, I was at work at 0530 5 days a week. After 1 hour of physical training, I would check into my office and begin the daily duties of analyzing psychological operations products to include: television ads, radio broadcasts, hand fliers, posters and standard scripts. I would check in with my immediate boss, the Aide de Camp of USACAPOC and begin whatever extra assignments she may have had for me that day. The most enjoyable part of my job was when everything fell into place and you could see the metric of completion working in your favor.

Very dependent
Avionic Mechanic (Former Employee), Ft. Worth Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, TXJuly 3, 2015
Pros: Easy Advancement as long as you do what you're supposed to
Cons: A lot of wrong information given, Things are always changing what what to do, where to be and what uniform to be in.
Everything Depends on your command, unit, squad leaders communication, correct information. Advancement is based on time in rank and paygrade, if you are overachieving. There are standards for the PT Tests and not all test givers follow the standards and either pass people who do something wrong or fail people that are things right. Things are never consistent

Seargent
Sergeant (Former Employee), USAJuly 3, 2015
Pros: Respect, appreciation, selfworth
Cons: hours
Reported early am either to do PT or look for candidates which wanted to join a military branch. I learned leadership, dedication, driving skills, communication. Co-workers are the finest men and women of this country. Hardest job was recruiting during the outbreak of war. Most enjoyable was knowing I put a good candidate into the military, which made it a career and as of this time has retired.

Exciting
Medical Laboratory Specialist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 3, 2015
Pros: Great meals
Cons: Long Hours
Exciting environment that changed from day to day. I learned how to deal with people situations and be straight forward. Coworkers can be nice and not so nice. The hardest part was being away from home and missing family. Traveling was the most enjoyable part of the job.

Overall psoitive
CBRN Specialist (Current Employee), VariousJuly 3, 2015
Pros: Mind altering life experience
Cons: simple freedoms
Not for everyone, the Army is for those who are strong in discipline and willing to sacrifice. Typical week days wake up at 5 am be at work by 6. Conduct various tasks from physical fitness to field operations. Co-workers come from all walks of life therefore flexibility and sensitivity is a must. The hardest part of the job is the deployments and any loss of life, yet the best part are the moments gained from spending time with those people you have deployed with.

Great Investment for future career
Fire Support Sergeant (Former Employee), Fort Bragg, NCJuly 3, 2015
Pros: Job Security, travel, proud, benefits
Cons: micro-managing, living conditions, work hours
I loved my job in the Army but management could have made the overall lifestyle and experience better. I got the privilege to meet some great people and visit some very unique places. The hardest part of my job in the Army was insuring that my soldiers understood their job and how to implement it in a real life scenario.

MEANING POSITION
Drill Instructor (Former Employee), Fort Sill, OKJuly 2, 2015
Pros: recognition of being the best
Cons: It takes a lot of hours to stay on top
Early wake, late rest..... Get new recruits up early to start physical training then field and classroom training all day. In this environment i learned how to motivate on many different levels. All instructors wanted to have the best soldiers complete training. The hardest part of the job was the hours its 24/7 mentally and 04:00 to 22:00 physically. When a loved one Says Thank You, i feel the accomplishment.
