The life of a Petroleum Supply Specialist and Human Resources Supervisor in the Army
Human Resources/Training NCO (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – July 27, 2016
A typical day as a Petroleum Specialist can be long at times with the refueling of trucks and aircraft's. You have to be prepared for any kind of emergencies that could accrue at any given moment. From something small like a minor spill to a huge fire or explosion. As a Human Resources Manager is different because the hardest thing may be a difficult person to help or someone missing with your files. My co-workers were some of the best people I've ever met. Being in the military taught me to watch out for the person next to you at all times. The hardest part about it was being deployed away from my family four separate times ranging from 8 months to 15 months away from them. The most enjoyable times were being able to meet new people and train new personnel and watch them become leaders themselves.
Personnel Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Carson, CO – July 27, 2016
Worked closely with 50 to 100 people daily. Trained soldiers for combat deployments. Long days. Working with multiple cultures. Worked paperwork for myself and other soldiers. Multiple teaching opportunities for subordinate personnel.
Aviation Officer (Current Employee) – Schofield Barracks, HI – July 27, 2016
The culture in the Army has changed over the last 10 years. When I joined the Army was like a family. Soldiers looked out for Soldier. Currently the culture is more of put yourself first and do what it takes to look better than your peers. I have watched soldiers through their peers under the bus to look better and advance their careers. Senior leadership that keep advancing seem to care more about their careers than what they are doing to their soldiers. I really hope this is just a product of the Army's downsizing and it will go back to the Army that leadership cares more about their soldiers than their careers.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – July 27, 2016
Being apart panther U.S. Army can be very rewarding for ones career and future. Getting free training, money for school, and plenty of other benefits can approve to be well for you, if you can bare all the conditions.
Infantryman (Current Employee) – worldwide – July 27, 2016
I have learned a lot over the course of my career and the Army gave me the training and opportunities to do so. The days are long and the contributions you make are great, however there is a huge payoff. The hardest part of the job was the deployments.
Fire Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Schofield Barracks, HI – July 27, 2016
I enjoyed my time in the military, but I am ready to move on to the transition out of the military. The army taught me disclipline, physical and mental toughness, how to be a leader, and how to adapt and overcome any situation that I am put into.
An independent thinker, team player and a self-starter with strong interpersonal communication and creative problem solving aptitude
Military Police Officer (Former Employee) – Pentagon, DC – July 27, 2016
There is nothing like serving in the United States Military Services. The people you meet, the places you go and knowing that you are a part of something greater than yourself is priceless. While being in the military you learn very quickly Live not exist.
Sergeant/Section Chief (Former Employee) – Fort Wainwright, AK, Fort Riley, KS – July 26, 2016
Your Army experience will vary depending on your leadership. Overall the moral in the Army is low. This is due to nobody ever knowing what's going on and everything changing daily. Many people in the Army know that there job is very secure as long as they pass the PT test. Therefore many people do not want to do work unless motivated in a positive or negative way. There are many good soldiers but also the same amount of soldiers that are useless. The Army is a good job for someone who has little motivation. I have seen many people be successful even if they do little work or care about their job at all. The main reason I got out was because I was unhappy because I worked really hard and was frustrated to see that people that didn't care about their job be just as successful.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – July 26, 2016
Like any other job it has its ups and downs but the jobs all vary and experiences also vary depending on your job. As an infantryman theres a more physical focus and you deal with 14-16 hour days unless deployed then it can be up to two days straight.

Private First Class (Former Employee) – Fort Benning, GA – July 26, 2016
The time I spent in training and meeting so many cultured people and personalities, will last a lifetime. I found out what I am made of and what I was not. I found my strengths to guide me through the tough times and always did my best. It was an experience I will never forget and I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve my country.
