Great experience
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee), Fort Jackson, SCJuly 1, 2015
The day started with physical fitness. Once physical fitness is complete then the day begins with the most important to get done until your task are complete for the day and prepare for the next. The Army is place where you learn to be a leader and leadership skills. You meet so many people from so many different places. I enjoyed everything about the Army and my job as well.

Although I consider this a great experience, I know it is not for everyone. The most difficult part is being away from your family of course and having to endure situations that you normally wouldn't go through.

It's the military. It's difficult and many things you do day to day don't make much sense. However once you are out you learn to appreciate the time served and you learn it was some of the best years of your life

Adapting and Overcoming
68w (Former Employee), Joint Base Lewis-McChordJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Great comradely, education opportunities, and medical care
Cons: All personal plans subject to higher approval
I worked at the base hospital for 10 months of the year, rotating shifts between 1, 2, and 3rd shift every 3 weeks. (Hardest and easiest part) During 4 months of summer I spent time in the field training officer cadets in emergency medicine, and basic field care. Life in the military is another way of living, instead of planning around your job, your life is planned around what your job is. Don't expect a easy time if you want to succeed, and move up in rank. Always ask if you don't know, if you do know, do, do not linger or waste time. Put forth 100% effort to daily missions, and classes.

Army life
Information Systems Operations Analyst (Current Employee), Eglin AFB, FLJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Many benefits, Days off
Cons: Long works hours (sometimes 16) and sloppy management
The experience in the army varies depending on which duty station you end up at and the major command (MACOM). In my instance, I was in a high tempo environment, where there as many as 2 -3 deployments per year. While the tempo was high, we were typically given some time off to spend with our families. Work was sometimes hectic, there was high demand across the board for support on missions and exercises. Due to this, planning was overall dysfunctional, and tasks were implemented at the last minute. It got pretty stressful, though somehow it was manageable (you'll get used to it).

Most of the people I've worked with now I've known for a long time. So you can say that I was in somewhat of a brotherhood. Most of us hung out each other on the weekends, came to each others parties, baby showers, etc. So even if you didn't like a person at first, you'll grow tolerate him/her eventually.

For me, I liked doing the computer parts about my job, but not necessarily the military part. While managing servers, configuring routers and switches and fixes desktops was fun. The constant unneeded time constraints, so-so management and stressful deployments can wear on you quite a bit.
