Patient Administration Specialist (Current Employee), Fort Story, VA – July 25, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: strictness and regulations
The days start early and sometimes end late. There is a strong need to have discipline and attention to detail in the Army. There are a lot of rules, customs, courtesies and regulations to follow. There is a lot of travel opportunity and a chance to meet new people everyday.
Is a rewarding and challenging career that instills integrity, accountablity, and honesty.

As a U.S. Army Veteran with over six years experience in project planning and customer service. The military has developed my leadership skills tremendously. The Army's culture is extremely diverse. This aspect has allowed me to enhance my communication and team-building skills as well.

Pros: 9 to 5 job, benefits
Cons: short lunch breaks, and leaving family for a long period of time
A typical day at work we make sure our fuel is tested and ready for people to come and get fueled. i learned to do samples and properly drive tankers and fuel trucks properly. Deployments are the hardest part of being in the army.
Infantry Team Leader/ supervisor (Former Employee), Various/ global – July 25, 2014
Pros: life long experience.
Cons: alot of travel time
In the army I learned what it meant to be a leader, to take charge and make decisions and how to motivate and train others. This experience helped define the person I am today. The hardest part of this job was knowing the potential out come and carrying out the mission regardless.
Company First Sergeant (Current Employee), Fort Campbell, KY – July 25, 2014
Pros: medical and dental benifits
Cons: deployments to hostile countries
A rewarding and challenging work place. Coaching and mentoring Soldiers and watching them achieve both personal and profeesional goals is truely rewarding. Job security and benifits are a plus and take care of all your needs.
Typical work day workout at 0600 work till 1700 doing medical training. I learned how to save Soldiers lives and cohabit with many different races and nationalities. Most management was decent, but when you are given orders you follow them to the best of your ability The most enjoyable part of the job was the other Soldiers.
Great experience and opportunity to work in a diversified multi-national community.
General Supply Specialist / Procurement Manager (Current Employee), Brussels, BRU – July 25, 2014
Pros: great travelling and culture experience
Cons: gas was purchased in liters
- Upon arriving to Belgium, it is quite a culture shock compared to what we are used to in the United States. I learned how to coerce with the largely diverse group of international military personnel on a day to day basis. Such things as, adapting to their customs and way of life. The people were friendly and I made many friends and business contacts – more... while stationed there. There were extreme challenges with procurement and contracting purchases of supplies due to the Government cutbacks and budget conflicts. But the most rewarding experience was the travelling. Europe is very beautiful and to have been able to see what I've seen while I was there, and experience all that Europe had to offer, I wouldn't change a thing. – less
Non-Commissioned Officer (Former Employee), Fort Lewis, WA – July 24, 2014
Pros: great unity and friends for life
Cons: no real family life
There isn't a typical day in the U.S. Army. I loved what I did and I do miss the unity that is incomparable. With seven deployments under my belt I can say that this is either a great place to start or, if committed, stick out your 25 years.
