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.

Army life was very busy, there were lots of deployments and many training days. That said it was the best experience of my life, a normal day would be mentoring, and counseling co workers, and a lot of paperwork. The best thing about it is the sense of accomplishment that I received from seeing my subordinates become excellent soldiers, mentors and leaders themselves.
