Patience, hard work, dedication, discipline and professionalism is amongst some of the requirements needed and i enjoy every minute of it.
Typical day at work consists of waking up at 0400am to 0500 and conduct PT for about an hour and a half two hours. After PT conduct Hygiene and report back to work where throughout the day we are given tasks that must either have to be completed throughout the day or for the week in a timely manner. My Job consists of me working in a team environment which more so becomes that of a family because you are with them all the time. So the relationships become strong, team work is always present, and everyone for the most part is willing and there within the company to help everyone out to get the mission completed. I am constantly learning or have learned something job related communication wise, and have gone to on the job training classes for my job or MOS specifically. When it comes to management you always report to someone in your hierarchy or chain of command rather its just briefing them or given them a report on tasks, rather or not they were completed, personal issues that may interfere with work performance and etc... Management for the most part is good. The hardest part about the job is or for me the wear and tear on your body and with a family there are times where it requires you to be ready at all times to be separated from your family for long periods of times and just have to go when required you to be. However the most enjoyable time is working with others building that bond and knowing you are embracing, serving your country, and doing something bigger than you yourself, providing that selfless service.
