Satisfaction through the serving of our Country
Senior Automotive Warrant Maintenance Officer (Former Employee), Fort Carson, COJuly 31, 2014
Physical training was the first thing we did every morning while I was in the Army. Even in Iraq we made time for PT in order to keep in shape and be better prepared for battle. As the maintenance officer I would ensure I had all the parts on order for the Brigades Maintenance teams. Treating others with respect goes a long ways. I would call the parts – more... suppliers ion the US and they would have the part to me no matter where I was in Iraq. This helped with the Operational Readiness of the Brigade's Maintenance Equipment. Management let me do my job without interfering because I was trained specifically in the Maintenance field. I had some great NCO's and soldiers that would work all day and night to get a piece of equipment up so it would be ready to return to the fight. The hardest part of my job was letting the micromanaging leadership know that I had everything under control. The most enjoyable part of my job was to see the soldiers smile and the pride that they had when the piece of equipment was fixed. – less

It really depends on what shift i was working if i was working days i would wake up around 0100 hours to do PT for about 30 minutes after PT was done we would go get into uniform and go back to the company to draw weapons from the arms room once everything was set up to go we would spread out through out post to do our police duties ie. security checks – more... on houses of deployed soldiers, conduct routine traffic stops, work traffic control points for schools letting the kids out for the day after 8 hours of work we would go back to company and turn-in weapons and get to go home – less

Airborne Ranger Infantryman (Current Employee), Savannah, GAJuly 31, 2014
Pros: benefits, job security, training, and relationships.
Cons: long periods of time spent away from family.
A typical day at work would include a number of tasks that have to meet and superiors approval and time standard. Once that is finished the planned training would begin to occur whether its going to a particular weapons range, airborne operations, or practice missions that take place at night. I've learned a large amount of responsibility and the ability – more... to think outside the box in order to get something done on time no matter what the task is. My co-workers are very talented individuals that would gladly sacrifice themselves or there conditions for the better of someone else. The hardest part of my job is the time I spend away from my wife and son. The most enjoyable part of my job is the relationships I've developed over the years and training I've been able to do and see since was selected for my job. – less

Pros: health care, paid leave
Cons: personnel shortages, decrease in pay benefits
I've served in the military for over 13 years now, rapidly approaching 14 and a nice end of that tenure. A typical day for me usually starts with waking up around 5am in the morning for physical fitness. After an 1hour 30min training session, I then start the remainder of my day at 0930 carrying out organizational tasks and missions. I supervise and – more... management 5 personnel currently and have many different co-workers of which all are unique and interesting people that I interact with day-to-day. The hardest part of my job is leaving for the evening when I feel there's so much that still needs to be done. I start working on something and just can't stop until it's done. The most enjoyable part of my job is the dynamic enviroment in which I constantly have to adjust to. I'm always meeting and working with new people; each of which has something new and different to bring to the table. – less
