Got to work with an awesome boss. The co workers were fun and always in high spirits. loved working here.
US Army (Former Employee), South Korea, Fort Rucker, Fort JacksonSeptember 1, 2014
Cons: short to almost no breaks long hours
Packing flight bags, taking notes and watching weather filing with base ops flight plans talking and communicating with pilots while they were in the air. Learn a lot about how to judge weather and catch mistakes that the pilots might make on there flight plans. The CO's were tough and supportive when they needed to be. The co workers were grate throwing – more... a bunch of people together from different walks of life is always interesting. Hardest part of my job we were a 24 hr operation. Talking to the pilots always made your day no matter what time they were flying. – less

Constant monitoring of satellite resources and working with users to troubleshoot issues.
Senior Satellite Network Controller (Former Employee), Fort Detrick, MDSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: great experience and learned a valuable skill, people were fun to work with
Cons: no breaks really, constant micro management from highers who didn't always understand the ongoing issue.
A typical day at work would be constantly monitoring our satellite resources and providing assistance to our users. At fort detrick we commonly worked with test users who frequently had issues and as a result we interfaced with the customer a lot and had to do a lot of assisting in troubleshooting. We didn't have remote connections to their equipment – more... so we basically would have to walk them through how to troubleshoot their own equipment given the information they gave us on what their issue was. It was a difficult task because satellite communications equipment is ever changing and as a control site we didn't have access to all the learning material for those new pieces of equipment that our users would get, we always had to break it down into signal flow and basic theory to hopefully get our users on the right track in their troubleshooting efforts. I worked in this field for 8 years and I was senior individual on the floor and I held the SWC(Senior Wideband Controller) position for most of my last four years of service. As the SWC you would manage your personnel as well as direct the troubleshooting we would do when a problem arose. The SWC was also responsible for training and sending out paperwork to notify the higher ups of anything abnormal happening. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the extra army stuff they liked to pile on us. we had a base 12 hour day, however, being the army we would come in 30 minutes early and then do physical training after wards for an hour at least making the day more of a 14 hour day, and sometimes they would throw in 4-6 hours of extra training at the end of the day making it even longer and this would happen at least twice a month. The most enjoyable part of the job was fixing issues. I loved working on the equipment or diagnosing and solving physical satellite issues. Working with the users was also OK, but sometimes it could get to you because not all of the end users were as knowledgeable as you would expect them to be. – less

12N Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee), Festus, MOSeptember 1, 2014
I believe the army is a great place for anyone to start out their adult life. It allows you to learn a new skill or trade and experience many other great things. I think the army is the best place for any adult who does not attend college to start an enjoyable career.

was an interesting and gratifing job. made you feel good about what you did for making a change in peoples lives!
Cannon Crewmember (Former Employee), Fort Sill, OKAugust 31, 2014
Pros: learned many aspects of disipline, punctuality, respect, and teamwork. saw places that i will never get to see again, shot guns that most guys only dream about (was a cannoneer member on a howitzer, self propelled, 155mm tank) was a great job !
Cons: no personal space. no privacy, and physical fitness.
was a life changing experience to be able to join after high school. saw country and places I would never have been able to see or wanted to see in some cases in my life. gave me a new outlook on life and what it really means and how quick it can change for a person. built a great relationship with people ,co-workers, that will last a lifetime. learned – more... the meaning of teamwork and that there is no "I" in team. learned how to get along with others and work side by side with people in order to accomplish a goal ,not quit or give up until it is accomplished, in a timely manner. learned how to respect my elders and authority , the reason for attention to details and what can happen when someone doesn't do their equal share . loved the army and everything that it stands for, just no personal "space" you could say. wasn't that into the running , physical fitness, part of it either. if no there was no physical training would still be in it. definitely the best move I ever made, in the decisions I have made, in my life ! – less

Life changing career
Airborne Infantry Specialist (Former Employee), APO, AEAugust 31, 2014
Joining the US Army active duty was the best commitment I have made in my life. Day to day basis consists of physical training and constant education to better enhance yourself at your military occupational specialty. Multiple benefits such as medical, dental, life insurance, cost of living allowance, and many more. I may not have agreed to some of – more... my co workers actions to the job or towards me but the were taken care of and corrected. The hardest part was waking up at early hours to conduct physical training in the morning or going on missions but other than that it was a well structured way of life. The risk of losing your life during Operation Enduring Freedom was high but the other soldiers around you helped keep oneself safe. The army it self teaches you a lot about yourself and how you can become better day by day. – less

Productive workplace with sufficient leaders
Field Artillery Data Systems Specialist (Former Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 31, 2014
Pros: free medical and dental insurance
Cons: dealing with unreasonable pp;
A regular day of work would consist of doing physical exercising with my co-workers in the morning. Then after breakfast we would come in for work, have our task that's at hand for the day relayed to us, and the complete it at the end of the work day I've learned how a leader should be towards their subordinates as far work and that if there is anything – more... going that's stressing them in their life that I could be there to help if needed. Management was perfect as long as it went down from the highest to lowest level of workers. I would the hardest part of my job would be dealing with stressful people that will blame you at a moments notice for their mistakes. The most enjoyable part of my job was the co-workers that actually cared and put for effort to the task at hand easy and enjoyable. – less
