A very versatile and interesting job
Power generation equipment repairman (Former Employee), Wahiawa HawaiiAugust 29, 2015
Check all generators for leaks proper, working condition, and service list for all generators due for a service. Learning experiences include learning how to read schematics, warning signs of a malfunctioning engine, electrical wiring and proper preventative maintenance. Worked hand to hand with co workers as a team player with enthusiasm. The hardest part of the job was leaving family for months and years at a time. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with my hands and repair diesel equipment.

Behavioral Health Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Riley, KSAugust 29, 2015
I woke up to serve and before I went to bed satisfied knowing that I helped a fellow brother/sister in their circumstances. The hardest part of being a soldier is just being away from family.

Hard working but enjoyable place
Specialist (Current Employee), Fort hood, txAugust 28, 2015
Pros: discounts, events, duty for your country, too much to list
Cons: too much to list
show up to work in the morning for physical activity, personal hygiene, show up to find out what your going to do for that day and work on it.

Co-workers are friendly most of the time yet professional.

hardest part of the job is following orders that don't make sense to you and pretty much having blind faith in your leadership most of the time.

most enjoyable part is the feeling of accomplishment

Challenging and an experiment
Recruiter (Former Employee), Pine Bluff, ARAugust 28, 2015
Pros: good team work amongst co workers
Cons: not enough company vehicles
Very challenging position especially for the location. Learned how to adjust and adapt. Co workers were an inspiration to me. We mentored and gave advice to each other. Hardest part of the job was trying to recruit people in that location due to lack of criminal records, education level, etc. The most enjoyable part was meeting people that really wanted to make a difference in their lives, but they could not pass the required test. Their motivation and determination put a smile on my face.

E5 Sergeant (Former Employee), Ft. Lewis, WAAugust 28, 2015
Pros: Working with my soldiers
Cons: Dealing with the politics
I learned how to lead soldiers and teaching them how to perform day to day tasks. I had really good leaders that taught me how to always improve myself and never settle for just satisfaction. I loved working with my guys there was no worry if the job got done or not. The hardest part keeping accountability for everyone while deployed to Iraq. The best part was knowing the job got done and everyone got home safely.

Great Benefits and Experience

The military provides a substantial amount of not only work experience but life experience as well. The benefits are terrific, including 30 paid vacation per year and full medical and dental coverage.
