Cannon Crewmember (Former Employee), El Paso, TX 79916September 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits and room to promotions
Cons: late nights occasionally
A typical day of work consisted of maintaining howitzer and vehicle equipment. My colleagues were always motivated and hard workers which always made the days work far more easier and productive. The hardest part about having this job is dealing with incoherent assignments delivered to us on such short notice.

First-Line Supervisor (Current Employee), Joint Base Lewis McChord, WASeptember 18, 2014
Pros: health care, pay
Cons: time away from family
A typical day involved physical training, receive the task for the day, accomplish the task, report to supervisor. I learned the mind is stronger than the body and once you acquire the ability to make the mind push the body farther than it wants to go you can accomplish anything. My co-workers are the best at what they do. The hardest part about my – more... job is being away from my family. The most enjoyable part of my job is gaining the personal satisfaction of being a part of the most elite unit that this great country has to offer. – less

Great job experience
Apache Repairman (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: went places i never thought i would have dreamed of going
Cons: never had a chance to call a place home.
A typical day as a Repairman. Every 30,60,180 days, and yearly we had to do preventative maintenance. This included from breaking a helicopter down to the frame and rebuilding and replacing items to making sure that all blades were not cracked or coming apart daily and window washing.
The things I learned about management was being and keeping a strict – more... schedule. Also how to work around different situations that can accrue.
My co-workers were really helpful as teaching me the difference between a crew chief and a repairman. Also how to become a leader
The hardest part of my job was doing work in hard to reach places.
The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing a helicopter fly after we did any work on it. Knowing that we keep the helicopters in the air.. – less

Legal Office Manager (Former Employee), Fort Bragg, NCSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: service to country, community, and fellow soldiers
Cons: long periods of deployment to foreign countries
The US Army taught me about leadership and discipline in all situations. From the mundane tasks to the detailed assignments effective leadership and tenacity are always a benefit. It also instilled in me a management skill set that equally weighs the assignment to be completed, the personnel requirements and hard deadlines. The hardest part of the job – more... was the deployments that separated me from my family and the most enjoyable part was the service to this wonderful country. – less

88M United States Army
Sr Vehicle Commander and Weapons Expert (Sergeant) (Former Employee), Fort Carson, COSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: pay, health care, and housing allowance.
Cons: deployments
While working as a 88M is the United States Army I was able to gain valuable work experience. A typical day consisted of many different things. In the Army your day starts off with formation and PT (physical training). After this is complete I would return to formation to start the work day. In the Army you do not work a typical 9-5 work day. Many times – more... I would arrive for PT at 7:00 a.m. and not get home until &:00 p.m. I was responsible for transporting soldiers and items to and from certain areas. A few of the things I learned while being in the Army was leadership skills, time management, and how to deal with adversity. I also had to learn how to adapt to different situations. The hardest part of the job would be the lifestyle and time spent away from my family. During my time in the Army I deployed twice, both deployments lasted over a year. This is a difficult time on you and your family. The best part of my job in the Army was the pay, education benefits, and health care. – less

Health Care Specialist 68W (Former Employee), Seattle, WASeptember 16, 2014
I felt I was well trained and that I could quickly and easily perform any task set before me. Through all the arduous bureaucracy and the most difficult times I really enjoyed the comradery. At times it was the lack of teamwork that made the job hardest, but there was always a way. Good experience.
