Hard work and discipline are the keys to success.
Specialist E-4 (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 20, 2017
The Army is a place that stresses the importance of showing up 10-15 minutes early. Most days, while not on deployment, we worked from 5am to 5pm. Although, hurry up and wait was a part of many days, lots of hard work was a major part of day to day life as well. I learned attention to detail is always important, as well as maintaining a professional appearance and attitude at all times. The work place culture of the Army contains many diverse people from all around the nation. We all were able to join together to achieve success no matter what the mission was. Many times the hardest part of the job was the physical training in the mornings. Weather often times is what made it difficult. Because no matter rain or shine, hot or cold we were were going to get our work out in. The most enjoyable part of the job was the camaraderie within the platoon.
