Infantryman (Former Employee) – Fort Lewis, WA – October 17, 2013
Well a typical day we would meet in the motor-pool to get our weekly briefing and do maintenance on the vehicles. Then we would move back to the barracks and clean weapons. I learned how to work on military vehicles, clean and operate weapons, shoot weapons at an expert level got 38/40 in my last qualifying day. The leadership was good they taught us a lot using powerpoint and then went on to do a live fire. My co-workers some were my friends some weren't i was kinda like high school in that aspect. The most enjoyable part of my day had to be PT we did it every morning and are squad made it fun and rigorous.
Instructor/Writer (Current Employee) – Fort Benning, GA – July 28, 2016
A typical day consists of conducting physical training (pt) at 0600 to 0700. Then based on your committee you prepared for the training you will conduct or continue with military commitments that need to be completed for the day.
Each duty day is different
At times, time sensitive assignments are passed down at the very last minute that need to be complete by COB.
12N Horizontal Construction Engineer (Current Employee) – Fort Stewart, GA – July 28, 2016
Hurry up and wait everyday. The hardest part the Army is sitting around outside in the cold or heat because there is no work to be done. Management in the Army will go look for the most crazy things they can find and make you do just because there is no work to be done.
Created a great deal of opportunities to learn and grow

Infantryman (Former Employee) – Fort Bliss, TX – July 28, 2016
A typical day working in the Army is very unpredictable and varies depending on current events and the Big Armies schedule. I learned a lot about myself like self limitations and how far I can easily push myself to accomplish a goal. The leaders in my section of the Army were great and helped me develop into the soldier I needed to become to survive my deployment in which I did. The hardest part of this job was the "unknown" The most enjoyable part of this job was pay day.
Time consumption. 24/7 your a soldier and hours vary depending on current events
SIGNAL SUPPORT SYSTEMS SPECIALISTS INSTRUCTOR (Former Employee) – Fort Gordon, GA – July 28, 2016
This is a life changing choice and a great way to serve your country. I have enjoyed every minute with my fellow brothers and sisters in arms defending our country and working group to train our younger generation on how to be leaders and carry out critical missions and reach success.
Engineer Officer Instructor (Former Employee) – Fort Leonard Wood, MO – July 28, 2016
Generally the population exiting the military have a distaste for their branch at discharge. If you put the effort forward to make your company/job better, then that is the result you will receive. The hardest part of being in the Army is making others understand that if they don't do their part, then addition stress is put on those around you. Teaching individuals this can be challenging. The end result is worth it. As an instructor I had the opportunity to see people molded from (sometimes) immature young adults into fully self-sufficient Soldiers in the Army.
It is the outstanding career feel and I believe everyone should participate in serving their country.

Signal Support Systems Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Drum, NY – July 27, 2016
The military has good benefits, and you get to travel, serve your country and provide for your family. The military has given a lot of people a chance to go to places they've never been and only dreamed of. Only the strong will survive. The military is only made up of 1% of our popultion in the country.
Benefits, Housing, traveling
your job isn't the only thing you do, you always have to answer to someone else

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.
