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.
Military Police Officer (Former Employee) – Fort Lewis, WA – January 18, 2018
Being a Military Police Officer was one of the proudest moments in my life. I was able to serve my country and also was able to perform in a law enforcement roll that I chosen as my career path. Unfortunately due to a lower back injury I was unable to enter the LAPD academy as planed and I have able to continue with a career in Security.
Electronics Technician 27E Tow (Former Employee) – Europe and US – January 18, 2018
The military gave me the ability to acquire leadership, organizational, written and verbal communications. I was fortunate to work in several European countries allowing me to see the world from a number of different filters.

HR Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – January 18, 2018
Challenging tasks every day. Your full potential will be tested but expands. Individual skills will grow at a fast pace through self-confidence and leaders' demands. Be open minded and learn from other coworkers' experiences. Not enough time to finish all you planned for that day. Interesting scenarios under unique circumstances continue to challenge your daily routine.
Based on your life goals the Army could be the place for you. I was fortunate enough to live out my dream as becoming a sniper. Unfortunately some soldiers become NCO's when i feel they don't truly deserve it.
AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL OPERATOR- STAFF SERGEANT (Former Employee) – Alabama, Germany, Iraq, Honduras, Colorado – January 18, 2018
Up early in the morning to bed late at night. Physically rigorous at times, not conducive to a healthy family life In many cases absent for work for long periods of time, sometimes in potentially hostile environments that may result in death. Reasonable ability to achieve higher levels of responsibility and higher pay, Workplace culture is entirely dependent on your duty location, your job, your abilities, and who you luck into for management. I learned numerous clerical, tactical, management, and aviation related skills.
Human Intelligence Collection Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – January 18, 2018
If you want to see the world, this is the way to do it. If you join the Army as a specific job, and you don't like it, at the end of your tour, and you plan on staying in, you can change your career path to a different job.
CBRNE Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – January 18, 2018
It was the best experience I never want to do again. First of all, the Army in a nutshell needs to focus on more practical approach to training to do what it was initiated for. and secondly, the leadership sucks at the highest level. At the lowest level, all depends on the leader.
Senior Movements Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – January 18, 2018
The military should not be a first option or an only option for a career. It is a great tool for those that need education and insurance benefits. I highly encourage going to college and getting a degree and doing a job similar to one that you might like in the military as it will pay you twice the salary. The military is a great place to learn discipline and skills of how to work with diverse groups of people. I enjoyed my career, the ups and the downs, and the skills I have learned. With all careers, it is what you make of it. So, if your passionate about the military or any career, you will love it.
