I greatly enjoyed the skills and knowledge while gained in the US Army.
Pilot in Command (Former Employee), O‘ahu, HISeptember 28, 2014
Pros: health care, steady paycheck, plenty of peers with a wealth of knowledge to share
Cons: family life can be impacted, stability (living in the same place for a long period of time if thats your thing).
While in the Army I learned from everyone and later in my career, shared the knowledge that I had. I learned everything from physical fitness techniques to the proper way to land a 50 thousand pound helicopter on a 18 degree cross slope. My time in the military also made me a fine leader and changed the way I had thought about working together with – more... peers. I am a better person and team player because of it. I would recommend the military to anyone and everyone. – less

Supervisor over my organization (Former Employee), Fort Sill, OKSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: free school
Cons: can spend up to a year away from family
A typical day at work consisted of training employees on the different types of systems, conducting inventory.

What I learned. In my time in the Army I learned self discipline, motivation and leadership skills

Management in the Army is second to none. Leadership is taught from your first day. managers are able to maintain standards in high paced ever – more... changing environment.

The hardest part of the job was the long periods of time away from family.

The best part of the job is the comradery. – less

Busy and productive days
Organizational Plan and Operations Manager (Former Employee), Fort Carson, COSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: fairly flexible in breaks, lunch
Cons: long hours
A typical day at work begins at 6:30 AM for physical fitness training that usually lasts an hour to an hour and a half. Work in the office begins at 9:00 AM. On a good day, lunch was taken from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Depending on what was going on that day, work usually ends anywhere from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM. I've learned not only how to manage and evaluate – more... my time and personal goals, but to manage people, how to disseminate work and information, evaluate the work of others, and how to think fast on my feet and adjust to whatever the situation may be. The hardest part of my job is the workload. I manage several operations are once and as much as I enjoy the challenge, it can be overwhelming. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with people and being someone that they can look up to and come to if and when they have a problem. – less

Great job for a single individual, kind of rough on a family.
cable operator and maintainer (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: benefits, meals, job security
Cons: rough on families, being deployed, frequent 7am to 7-8pm days
I arrive at work and check emails to see who requires my cable running skills. Then i go to them and fix the problem. I fix about 6-7 issues per day. I learned a great deal in not only cabling but computers, network switches, satellites and proxy servers
The management varied from person to person. The management was easy going and relaxed as long as – more... work was being done but if certain people were not carrying their weight, they were soon back on track through corrective training. I enjoyed working with all my coworkers. Since i can easily get along with anyone, social interaction was never a problem for me. My favorite part of the job was the camaraderie and how no matter who you are, you could ask anyone to give you a hand and they were always willing to help. – less
