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.

Have a legitimate reason to join. Simply wanting to serve will make your time in unrewarding. Use the military as a stepping stone to advance your education and career. Wouldn't recommend to many people.

I worked at tripler army med ctr from 2014-2017 and it was the worst. the best time in the army for me was in the field. I didn't want to be a hospital medic, I loved being a field medic. deployment was the bets time in my army career.

Horizontal Construction Engineer (Current Employee) – Fort Bliss, TX – February 16, 2017
worst experience in my life, leadership only cares about what awards they recieve and how they look. im active duty and rarely did my job was more like a glorified janitor then a soldier. the training lacks structure. not enough challenging courses. feel no pride in my service anymore.
My day starts at 5:30 am and ends at 6:00pm. On a day to day basics I manage 15 Soldiers and control the flow of cargo through air, ground and sea assists. I Managed Kuwait and Iraq customs in order to transport supplies throughout the Middle East.
Tactical Command Medic, E5 Sergeant (Former Employee) – Joint Base Lewis McChord, WA – February 16, 2017
Overall the Army is a wonderful career, granted you get to the duty station you want and career field. I find this career to be better suited for the single person than the married or long term relationship person. You spend a lot of time away from home, and may end up overseas, which can actually be pretty decent. Know your place, this is not an organization where individualism is idealized. Right place, right time, right uniform. You will be okay if you can follow that little bit of advice.
Special Operations Communications Sergeant (Current Employee) – Military Distrcit of Washington – February 16, 2017
A typical day at work here is full reaction mode when it comes to dealing with actions that occur overseas and having to deal with an ever changing world. On a daily basis we are counted on to be innovative and never fail. We provide communications and IT support to the toughest clients that DoD has to offer.
