Health Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – June 24, 2016
The typical workday starts at 05:30 and does not end until 17:00. Most of the day is riddled with rigorous physical activity. Volunteering was a must to get assignment usually related to your job description otherwise most of the day was utilized doing motor pool activities.
Never had to worry about cooking a meal unless you wanted to
Could have done more tasks related to actual job description.
Fire Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Schofield Barracks, HI – July 27, 2016
I enjoyed my time in the military, but I am ready to move on to the transition out of the military. The army taught me disclipline, physical and mental toughness, how to be a leader, and how to adapt and overcome any situation that I am put into.
An independent thinker, team player and a self-starter with strong interpersonal communication and creative problem solving aptitude
Military Police Officer (Former Employee) – Pentagon, DC – July 27, 2016
There is nothing like serving in the United States Military Services. The people you meet, the places you go and knowing that you are a part of something greater than yourself is priceless. While being in the military you learn very quickly Live not exist.
Sergeant/Section Chief (Former Employee) – Fort Wainwright, AK, Fort Riley, KS – July 26, 2016
Your Army experience will vary depending on your leadership. Overall the moral in the Army is low. This is due to nobody ever knowing what's going on and everything changing daily. Many people in the Army know that there job is very secure as long as they pass the PT test. Therefore many people do not want to do work unless motivated in a positive or negative way. There are many good soldiers but also the same amount of soldiers that are useless. The Army is a good job for someone who has little motivation. I have seen many people be successful even if they do little work or care about their job at all. The main reason I got out was because I was unhappy because I worked really hard and was frustrated to see that people that didn't care about their job be just as successful.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – July 26, 2016
Like any other job it has its ups and downs but the jobs all vary and experiences also vary depending on your job. As an infantryman theres a more physical focus and you deal with 14-16 hour days unless deployed then it can be up to two days straight.

The time I spent in training and meeting so many cultured people and personalities, will last a lifetime. I found out what I am made of and what I was not.

Transportation Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Eustis, VA – July 26, 2016
A typical day at work would be coming in signing in greeting everyone checking what happened while i was gone. Check the days agenda or plans. Have good working co-workers not someone that's gonna drag down your team. The hardest part of the job would be is being away from my ol lady, but in hand a good thing would be i can provide more for them and in return i will earn respect from my peers and family for doing what i would have to do.
Transportation Management Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 26, 2016
Depends on your unit and MOS or your job on how your experience will be. I think I can say that overall, it was a great experience and I learned a lot about myself and working with others. PT was hard sometimes but so is life, just have to get through it and work your way up and take time to improve yourself. If you can do that, PT and everything else will become easier.
Logistics Specialist (Former Employee) – Ft. Bragg, NC – July 26, 2016

US Army (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 26, 2016
A typical day in the Army was long. We got up at 6 in the morning to exercise. Then at 9 we went to the chow hall for breakfast, worked until noon and ate the chow hall again, then worked until the end of the day at 5 pm. My superiors where very strict in making sure we maintained that schedule. It was a big test in discipline for me. Deploying to Iraq was even more of a test in that regard. The hardest part was being away from friends and family for such a long period of time but yet I had some of the most enjoyable times. I traveled to many different places in my service with the Army. I really learned a lot about myself.
