Very mentally and physically demanding
Infantryman (Former Employee), Various postsAugust 16, 2014
A typical day is doing pt from about 0600 till 0700 or 0730, go to the barracks to shower,shave and eat breakfast at the chow hall. Be at second formation to start working by 0900, work for Infantry varies from day to day. You could be sweeping barracks hallways and sidewalks or be on motor pool detail(cleaning/maintaining vehicles, sweeping, or something – more... that gets you very dirty). Then lunch around 1130-1230(30 min lunches if training, possible over an hour lunches when nothing to do). After lunch you could be doing the fore mentioned for the rest of the day or you could be out at the shooting range/field training. Every Thursday after lunch my squad leader or platoon sergeant would to take us on a 7-10 mile road march so we would not fail or fall out on the EIB basic qualifications or company road marches. If you are lucky(have good leaders) you will be off around 1600-1800. If you are unlucky, you will be off at different times every night ranging from 1800-0000. – less

Every experience is different. It's a hit or miss
Healthcare Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYAugust 16, 2014
Pros: lots of great benefits, you meet a lot of interesting people, a lot of job security because our nation will always need a military
Cons: sometimes weekends can be taken away from you, some units deploy a lot more often then other units, not for those who are undisciplined, lazy, unfit, not in shape, but sometimes they let them in anyways and they hold us back
Depending on where you are stationed and who comprises your chain of command your experience can be amazing. I have experienced both. Some commands were really very strict, and sometimes they were scheduling too much training for any one soldier to do. Some commands were amazing and really took care of the soldiers. They gave us a lot of time with our – more... families, especially getting close to deployment. They looked out for us and defended us if something went wrong in training or operations and it wasn't our fault. – less

Productive with a high stress level
School NCO (Former Employee), Fort Drum NYAugust 16, 2014
On a typical day I process 20-30 soldier to be send to school plus I have to deal with a lot of last minute need from the higher ranking personnel which is the hardest part of the job. Management is pretty demanding wanting job done now even though I have other things that I need to do and takes the credit for the job we do. My Co worker are usually – more... stress and mad due to the work load and the morale is very low. If anything what I learn from this job be able to work in a stressful situation and handle it professionally, also learn to work with little supply and no directions from my superior to get the job done on the timely manner – less

A great start to a promising future
Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort Stewart, GAAugust 16, 2014
Pros: chances to try new things
Cons: being separated from friends and family
Yes, the U.S. Army isn't your typical job, but underneath glitz and glitter it was a 9 to 5 job. With any job there is problems, but with the army you have every opportunity to better yourself through several different routes you can take.

Tough but rewarding position
Staff Sergeant (E-6) (Current Employee), Fort Hood, TexasAugust 16, 2014
Pros: when not overseas, may have several periods of time off for family matters.
Cons: caqn spend years away from home
A typical day includes physical training, equipment maintenance and customer service. I have learned how to mentor and be mentored as well as personal discipline. Like most positions, some supervisors are great and some are not, you have to take the best of what you have and work with it. Coworkers are usually go getters that want to get the job done – more... so that they can maximize their free-time. The hardest part of the job is having to leave your family for long periods of time (at least a month or so). The most enjoyable part of the job is the pride felt when you come home. – less

Network Automation Manager (Current Employee), Fort Irwin, CAAugust 15, 2014
Cons: deployments
Early morning time used for physical activity to increase personal health and fitness. Excellent working environment. Team-concept and very supportive co-workers. Hardest part of work is deployment and field training that separates employees from spending time with family or having a day off work. Most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you are – more... contributing to the success of the organization as well as making a difference in people's lives daily. – less

A great place to serve your country.
Transition Coordinator (Former Employee), Fort Eustis, VAAugust 15, 2014
Pros: great place to grow mentally and professionally.
Cons: an enormous amount of time away from family.
A typical day at work: Depending of what job you have, a typical work day is 0600 or 0630 physical training, and from approx 0900-1700 (5pm) you go to your regular work area.

I have learned that if you do your job well, only good things will come to you. I worked at a Wounded Warrior Unit, and I was responsible to the care of Soldiers who were wounded, – more... injured or ill. I basically assisted Soldiers in their transition back into a unit to continue their careers, or back into their local communities to serve in a different capacity. – less

U.S. Army Line Medic
Military Police Line Medic (Former Employee), Schofield Barracks, HIAugust 15, 2014
Pros: learned basic soldiering skills, tactics, learned basic problem solving skills, teamwork building exercises.
Cons: dealt with soldiers who only looked out for themselves, dealing with individuals who had no integrity
A typical day is wake up at 0500, then I would put on my Physical Training uniform and go to my company. I was a medic so I was attached to an Military Police Company. I would conduct sick call and see the troops who would need to be seen by a medical officer and send them to the clinic. At 0630 we would line up and formation and salute the flag. Then – more... we would conduct Physical training from 0630-0745. After we would complete our training we would then get released for personal hygiene and breakfast until 0900. At 0900 we would report back to our leadership where we were given the mission for the day. Most times we would go to the range and training on weapons systems. I was normally in the medical vehicle while my company shot the weapons. Then I would get someone to cover my position while I shot the different weapon systems. Then after the day was over we would clean the weapons until they were approved by our leadership. At 1700 (most times later than that) we would form up and be released for the day. – less
