I really enjoyed my time serving in the military. I have learned a great deal of things while serving my country like teamwork,selfworth, discipline, pay attention to detail, being on time, time management and the list goes on. The most hardest part of my job was long hours but after doing it constantly it became easy. The good part was being a part of a team that stuck together no matter what!
save lots of money. no rent, no food bill basic your living free
going to the field for training boring at time but in the end its worth it.
Army Sergeant (Former Employee) – Hawaii/Iraq – July 25, 2017
I loved everything about my military experience! I learned the true meaning of discipline and hard work. I became the man I am today because of the guidance and teaching that I received from my time in the service. I was a cook for the soldiers on my base and enjoyed being at such a valued position.
Great advancement opportunities, great benifits, travel

The army is a great place to learn about th world while serving your country. It will teach you how to survive and work for your keep, it will push to better than you ever thought you could be and put you under more stress than you ever thought possible.
Calvary Scout/Specialist (Former Employee) – Ft. Stewart, GA – July 24, 2017
I enjoyed my time in the Army. As difficult or strenuous as it can be, i find it to be a challenging and rewarding environment. I was not a great soldier but I have taken many things I learned from the Army and applied them to my work philosophy.
Typical day at work all depended on what the unit had assigned that day. Maintenance was always occurring, so work orders were in a constant, although low, supply. Leadership will work with you, if you have the proper leader and don't do something to make them look bad. Hardest part of the job is the complacency issues, always need to try and vary things up.
MEDICAL TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) – Fort Drum, NY – July 24, 2017
The army is great in many aspects. You meet awesome people and get to travel the world while serving your country. However, the bull you have to put up with to enjoy those perks is ridiculous. Four years is enough.
benefits, friends, travel, sense of pride
political correctness, long hours, incompetent leadership
Psychological Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – July 24, 2017
I would highly recommend hard working, good person with high Integrity to join the U.S. Army. Although a lot will depend on your Unit and its leadership that you will be assigned to. You could be assigned to a Toxic Unit with Toxic Leadership.
Free College, free medical
Depends on the Unit and its leadership that you are assigned too.
Battalion Marine Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Eustis, VA – July 24, 2017
Was able to influence policy and procedure changes because I did the research and presented why my ideas would make much need improvements. So in my experience, the unit can be as good or as bad as you make it. If you want it to be good then just work for it.
Cavalry Scout (Current Employee) – Korea , hinesville ga – July 24, 2017
Although it wasn't my first choice for a job it was certainly rewarding I got to see the world and see many different cultures. I was able to pretty much work out every day to stay in shape and being a single soldier I got free food
