It was ok
Food Service Specialist (Former Employee), hawaiiJune 29, 2015
It was not the best place but not the worst. You will always have leadership in places that are not good leaders. I enjoyed my actual job just not my leadership. Health benefits are good. There is a lot of stuff that comes with being soldier so just be prepared for anything. Make sure you can control your anger because its all about respect in the military.

I joined the army to make a change in my life. Needed a new start and a new direction and I got those things and more. It was a challenge every step of the way of the results and the changes you make along the way are worth it. Made some of the best friends I've ever had and had some of the greatest experiences of my life.

PFC (Former Employee), Fort Jackson, SCJune 29, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Time away from home
Very hard work and not for everyone. Learned to appreciate my time with my family. Trainees that do not belong in the military are made apparent within the first week of training. Hardest part is the weather and being away from home for months at a time.

Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee), Shaw AFB, SCJune 28, 2015
Pros: Compensation, travel, experiences, meeting good people
Cons: Having bad leaders, confusing regulations, irrelevant tasks.
Awake or asleep. On duty or off, you are a Soldier. That is all that really matters. A task is given, you complete it. The good days out number the bad but the bad people seem to out number the good. You learn a lot about working with others and accomplishing a task regardless of what it is.
