Health Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – June 24, 2016
The typical workday starts at 05:30 and does not end until 17:00. Most of the day is riddled with rigorous physical activity. Volunteering was a must to get assignment usually related to your job description otherwise most of the day was utilized doing motor pool activities.
Never had to worry about cooking a meal unless you wanted to
Could have done more tasks related to actual job description.
AUTOMATED LOGISTICAL SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Ft. Bragg, NC – July 19, 2016
A typical day at work for me would start off with Physical Training at 06:00 for an hour or more. Afterwards, I'd report to my office in the motorpool at 08:50. From there, I'd attend a daily maintenance meeting with my Maintenance Officer and my mechanics. Then, I'd go to my office, run my daily reports, order/track parts for my mechanics, see what automated equipment was due for service, dispatch vehicles to multiple soldiers, visit the warehouse to receive the parts that I ordered, then report back to my office in the motorpool to check my parts in, inform my maintenance officer, then hand out the parts required for the vehicles to my mechanics. Sometimes, I'd train other Supply Techs in other units to do the same tasks and also every every Wednesday, I'd attend a battalion maintenance meeting with my Maintenance Officer. I was on high demand, so at times I'd work late hours. This would happen more often when other units would deploy, thus leaving me to control their equipment as well as my unit's equipment.

Field Artillery Tactical Data System Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – July 19, 2016
I loved every moment being in the Army. I matured and found what I wanted in life. I met people and made friends that I will never forget. Unfortunately, the officers and leadership in my unit didn't focus on what's best for the soldiers and families of those soldiers but instead to further their own careers, which made me not want to pursue a career in the military. I will never forget what I have been taught and what I have seen and will continue to live the Army values.
Sergeant (Current Employee) – Fort Lewis, WA – July 19, 2016
Enlisting in the Army was the greatest decision I ever made, I learned self-discipline, self-motivation, and the effects that tough love can have on molding you. A typical day involves PT at 0630, work call at 0900 and depending on your job, getting home at a decent hour. Management varies depending on where you're stationed and who is in charge of you. I learned so much about myself and really developed in to an effective leader. The diversity within service is amazing and unmatched, you build a sense of brotherhood that I personally believe you can never get in any other job area. The hardest part of the job is having little to no control on where you'll be working, or how long you'll be there. The most enjoyable part of my job is the day-to-day mission, ever changing and challenging.

Morning physical training. Go to work. Off by 5pm. no weekend work unless you had duty or in the field training. Great leaders. Always training their soldiers. Hardest part of the job.

Avionics Mechanic Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fort Carson, CO – July 18, 2016
A typical day starts off with physical training. I have had the pleasure of working in an environment that is fast paced and diverse. Supervisors allow you the flexibility to do your job while supervising and safeguarding the welfare of those around you. It was an honor to be a part of this awesome organization, and I do look forward to serving both this organization and this country in an effective capacity. The hardest part of this job is the necessary separation from family at times, however, the camaraderie that I experienced during these times is something that I will never forget.

Excellent experience withe an incredible amount of opportunities to explore. I've been able to travel the entire country and learn so much. I wish I could stay in the Army longer but I'm hitting a glass ceiling with my rank.

The military isn't cut out for everyone. I joined at a young age, and was afford the ability to serve before the wars. The military is hard on family life, but at the same time allowed for me to provide for my Wife of 20 years and 3 boys. Until recently never worring if I would get paid and knowing that what I was doing was for a bigger reason than just myself.
