U.S. Army aviation
Automated Logistics Specialist (Former Employee), Ft. Drum, NyDecember 15, 2014
Pros: benefits!!! aviation pretty laid back compared to most ground units.
Cons: permission must be granted to travel (x)miles on weekends and holidays. deployments.
One of the best moves I could of made in life. The Army takes complete care of it's soldiers (medical, dental, vision, life insurance) free for service member and family. Teaches discipline and team work while learning job skills that can be transferred into civilian workforce.

Interesting and Learning Experience Every Day
Receptionist/Veterinary Technician (Former Employee), Fort George G Meade, MDDecember 14, 2014
Pros: comradery, benifits, education, holidays
Cons: new military, supervisors
A typical day at work would be doing physical fitness from 0700 to 0800, and coming into work at 0900. Would either being running treatment rooms seeing owners and patients, or being up front acting as a receptionist, or would being doing paper correspondence. I learned a lot throughout my time being there and throughout the military. I learned how – more... to be more social, be more confident, and how to interact with people. Became more of an experienced veterinary technician. The hardest part of my job for me involved the Rabies Management Program, some of the owners of the animals were not very compliant at times, but we made it work. The most enjoyable part of my job was satisfying customers, helping animals, and enjoying working with my co-workers. – less

15 Years of Service
Patrolman, Squad Leader, Patrol Supervisor (Current Employee), MultipleDecember 14, 2014
Pros: benifits
Cons: extended time away from family
A typical day of work starts at 0500 am when you wake up. Physical Fitness is one of the pillars of the Army and it is the first thing that you do in the morning. It usually lasts about an hour and a half and then you have an hour to shower and eat breakfast. The normal duty day starts at 930am. Work can consist of administration work or tactical work, – more... The Military Occupational Skill (MOS) is really dependent on what you do in your daily work life. The days can end as early as 5pm or later depending on the tasks that need to be done that day. – less

Fast paced and result oriented overall a great place to work
Automated Logistics Supervisor (Current Employee), Fort Drum, NYDecember 14, 2014
Pros: benefits for myself and family, housing, location
Cons: no overtime for working late or weekends
Typical day consists of compilation of daily reports and maintenance meetings dispatching of various vehicles for day to day operations. acquisitioning of parts and processing of parts received. Management of shop stock and bench stock parts and system back up at the end of the day. Managed mentored and trained a team of 4 personnel to run day to day – more... operations. Hardest part of the job was having enough personnel at times to get jobs done. Most enjoyable part of this job would definitely be being around a group of people that are willing and ready to work towards the end goal and the customer service that is provided. – less

Can't say enough about the Army. Learned so much and got to do even more. The knowledge I gained from my superiors and my peers will help me in my future endeavors.

Overall the Army was a great experience
squad leader (Former Employee), Fort Riley, KSDecember 13, 2014
The Army itself is a hard life, but the learning experiences, life lessons, integrity and strength it instills in you makes it all worth it. Just like with any job not all management styles are the same, nor will they all be the most effective for each and every person you come in contact with, the Army was a great experience and If given the chance – more... I would do it all over again. – less
