Headquarters Platoon Sergeant and Fire Support NCO (Current Employee), Fort Drum, NYJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: the benefits are good, free health care for you and your family, the retirement program, and savings programs are excellent
Cons: you spend a lot of time away from family.
It gives young men and women a solid place to start and the rest is up to you. You get out of it what you put in to it. For those who are looking for a challenge in life and possibly a career. Either way, what ever occupational training you chose will it will give you a good place to start in a future career.

Learned many life lessons
Executive Manager (Current Employee), Fort Campbell, KYJanuary 28, 2015
I've learned over the years the best thing you can learn to do ever is take it one day at a time and one small target closest to you at a time that is all. After ten years of service I have seen a lot of things and learned a lot I will carry with me the rest of my life. It was an overall positive experience.

Practice Management in the Army
Practice Manager (Former Employee), Fort Carson, COJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: working with various people, learning new technologies, and learning new aspects of various job roles
Cons: 2-3 year rotation, always on call (military), sometimes no breakfast nor lunch break
A typical day at work starts with arriving at 6 a.m. to open the facility. I start computers and check equipment throughout patient treatment rooms and axillary rooms to ensure everything is functioning prior to customer arrivals. I greet all employees and ensure all treatments rooms are properly staffed. I compile various supply reports, budget reports, and treatment reports. I liaison with other supporting agencies throughout the community providing readiness and referral care reports. I made sure I was accessible to all employees and vendors. I made a point to walk throughout the clinic different parts of the day to speak to everyone. Practice management in the Army has taught me to be flexible, to be adaptable, and to be personable. It was this job that I enjoyed the most. The hardest part of this job was leaving when I was honorably discharged.

U.S. Army Signal Officer
Signal Officer, Major (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TXJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: great fringe benefits
Cons: long hours and deployments put a real strain on the family
The typical day at my job in the Army consisted of managing a team of 25 personnel to design, implement, and secure networks for up to 3,000 users on 18 different communications platforms.

I learned extensively about information technology management. I also learned about leadership and what it takes to successfully influence people to accomplish tough missions as a team. I learned about staff integration, and how modern technology requires an IT manager to be able to understand and add cohesiveness to all business functions within any element.

My co-workers were generally hard working professional who continually amazed with their discipline, commitment to the mission, and ability to have fun while doing so. There was a lot of camaraderie from the combined endurance of tough situations that is otherwise impossible to forge.

The hardest part of this job was to tactfully advise leaders that their goals and methods were having an adverse impact on the organization's ability to accomplish the mission.

The most enjoyable parts of the job included the satisfaction of doing something meaningful, honorable and worthwhile with many amazing people.

Gained lots of skills and knowledge but ready for new challenges as a civilian.
Combat Engineer (Current Employee), Fort Hood, TXJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: excellent healthcare benefits, traveling the globe
Cons: extremely inconsistent work schedules with hardly any time to plan accordingly
A typical work day consisted of what the higher level command wanted completed. From training to operate successfully in combat, scheduled maintenance on equipment or advancing individual military careers through specific schooling. I became proficient in many areas to include leadership, accountability, management, concept of operations, Engineering and the importance of discipline. The hardest areas of the job was adjusting to constant change in management, schedules and missions. Being away from loved ones for years months or weeks at a time never being able to plan free time accordingly due to repeated uncertainties in my work schedule. Taking care of my subordinates, training them and watching them successfully perform duties in compliance with my instructions was easily the most rewarding and enjoyable part of my military experience.

Appreciative Experience
Company Armorer (Former Employee), Fort Knox, KYJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: stable pay, many benefits
Cons: extreme micro-management
The best aspect I gained from the U.S Army is appreciation. I have experienced schedules that change more frequently that I ever expected, but instilled a discipline of punctuality. I have deployed, and learned how to perform under the most stressful situations, which makes me confident to to handle future jobs.

The hardest moments would be the separation and uncertainties of many days at a time. I now appreciate the more stable environment of a non-military job. Having a typical 8 to 5 business hours (or what have you), or a concrete idea and task for a job, fulfills my personality for being productive.

The most enjoyable part of the job would be the teamwork, and the unique relationship that service members develop during his or her service.
