Excellent co-workers & experience
Operational Detachment Support Operations Sergeant (Current Employee), Ft. Campbell, KYMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Medical Benefits, Pay, Expereinces, People
There is no such thing as a typical day in the Special Forces community. Being adaptive, flexible and motivated is what leads you to mission success. The leadership and people I worked with were excellent and will be family for the rest of my life. I learned more about myself and the world in this job than I have at any other point in my life. I will miss the brotherhood and commraderie it provided.

The hardest part of the job was leaving my family behind and missing out on significant events.

The best part of my job was traveling to various countries with minimal guidance and the flexibility to get things done. Everyday was different and your job and what you accomplished was directly up to you and your team. You get out what you put in.

The thing to do as a 18 yr old fresh out of Highschool,if your unsure on what to do next
Automated Logistical Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Bliss, Tx/ Babenhausen GermanyMarch 25, 2015
Pros: A new experiance
Cons: Being away from home for the first time
A typical day at work would be maintaining a warehouse by doing different warehouse functions such as shipping and receiving, stocking, order placement, and parts tracking. Being that I had just graduated high school the Army was able to introduce me to a career of logistics for which I continued years after leaving the Army. The management could change often so my view of them could change often. The fellowship of fellow soldiers to me was the best part of the Army and the everlasting memories that we built. The hardest part of the job was being a soldier 24/7 meaning you had to learn to conduct yourself as such, no matter were you where at. The pride of serving Is something that I will always have

Weapons Team Leader (Current Employee), Fort Drum, NYMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Shooting weapons, traveling
Cons: Short breaks, bad leadership at times
The army infantry is a tough job. Each day there is physical training to start the day off then goes right into a normal work schedule. Maintenance for trucks is done daily and weapons cleaning is always a must. The overall summary of the job is fun and educational as long as you can listen to orders.

The ability to advance is tremendous! By working extremely hard you can be very successful. Take advantage of all opportunities. Go above and beyond your duty and become a LIFELONG Learner! All these things are very possible! I joined the Army at age 17 years as an E-1 from a small town in WA state and will now be retiring as an E-9 after a very successful 24 years. Some very tough times in those years, but I did it with mostly terrific people! Go Army!

The best job in the world
Senior Non Commissioned Officer Combat Arms (Current Employee), Fort Irwin, CaliforniaMarch 24, 2015
Pros: Training the force, mission accomplishment
Cons: long hours
On a typical day I process all incoming information from dozens of sources which may be written, audio, and video. All information is analyzed and converted into a product that will the capabilities of the unit being trained and we display all actions that were successful and unsuccessful. We provide lessons learned from other rotations and apply it to the current unit training which allows them to be more effective in their execution. I enjoy the product that we deliver to each Task Force and how it positively affects training in this type of environment. The hardest part of this job is the hours that could be anywhere from 8 hours to up to 18 hours per day. I work well with our leadership to produce a well developed and thought out product

Squad Leader/Platoon Sergeant (Current Employee), Fort Drum, NYMarch 24, 2015
Pros: Benefits, advancement, environment
Cons: Time away from family, leadership, last minute duties
The military has been a great place to work. I have gained many friendships and skills through my twelve years serving in the military A typical day at work consisted of handling day to day problems that may arise with Soldiers, or respond to any disturbances within the military community. I learned how to work as a team, solve complex tasks, manage my time, lead and develop subordinates and counsel and mentor subordinates. The most enjoyable part of my job was the time that I got to spend making a difference in the life of the Soldiers that were under me.

Section Leader (Former Employee), Fort Benning, GAMarch 24, 2015
My typical work day was full of different jobs. That's what i liked about it. It kept me on my toes. I was in charge of 8-10 soldiers. Most of my time was spent in an outside environment. As a section leader my main focus was safety. Its hard to explain a day in the military. The eight years I spent in the service taught me so much about what it takes to make it in the real world.
