Very job specific (given the field of work chosen) Thorough and frequent training, monthly ratings/counseling and constant change of environment.
Pros: health care, educational benefits, travel, discounts, incentives, learn and develop trade skills and promotion opportunities are abundant
Cons: constant relocation
A day for me consisted of PT (Physical training) of course. Afterwards was work. As an Aircraft Powertrain Repairer I was responsible for maintaining the drive system and landing gear on all airframes utilized by the US ARMY. I was to be familiar with calibrated, special and locally made tools NDT (Non Destructive Testing) equipment and methods. As a team leader, I was responsible for the accountability of my subordinates their equipment , proper wear of the uniform and physical fitness. Leadership throughout all echelons of command is always readily available and approachable able to accommodate the basic needs of a fellow soldier. The cohesion amongst myself and my co-workers was insurmountable. The most difficult part of the job was constantly relocating but that was it. What made it easy or most enjoyable was the support one receives from his/her counterparts. From this experience I learned different leadership styles and skills, team building skills and and how to build cohesion amongst others.
