11/B INFANTRYMEN (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYJuly 21, 2014
Pros: staying physical for job, having the right gear for anything coming up for duty.
Cons: n/a
Days at work was really high motivating work was really intense at most times during training . i learned work was suppose to be time for learning and team leading, leaders had to have a such high role up on young recruits. always being on time and having proper equipment along with gear being prepared for work made things safe for others and myself – more... having to be physically prepared for anything. for me the hardest part of the job was the best part of the job putting all the training to use making sure all things worked just like they did during training showing the top leaders you were always fit for duty and always willing to do more to help others. – less

EMERGENCY CARE SERGEANT (Former Employee), Fort Bragg, NCJuly 21, 2014
Pros: federal benefits
Cons: high possiblity of death
There is no "typical" day in the United States Army. I completed vast amounts of training and used those skills to ensure my safety and those around me. I have trained hundreds of soldiers how to save lives while deployed and at home. The hardest part about my job was leaving. There always felt like there was something to do. The brothers and sisters – more... that I have gained while serving will be with me forever. – less

Maintenance NCOIC (Current Employee), Fort Carson, CO.July 21, 2014
I wake up and enjoy a great physical training regiment for about one hour just to get the blood moving. My day is filled with great training. It can range from flying UAVs all day, shooting ranges, sometimes even paintballing. Co-workers are great, I have opportunity to make lifelong friends. The hardest part of my job is that it is very physically – more... demanding and mentally demanding at times. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I get to do things that not everyone has the opportunity to enjoy. – less

Great organization and training opportunities
Medical Records Technician, Scanner - Full Time (Former Employee), Schweinfurt, BYJuly 21, 2014
Pros: stability
Great organization. I've learned health administration from both front/back-end. I've always enjoyed customer service so my initiative to take on additional duties broadened my knowledge and skills. In my previous job I created systems and processes that were implemented and used as a benchmark throughout the entire European Army Health Care System, – more... thus, opportunities are endless.

A typical day consisted of scanning over 100 German translated medical records, multi-tasking at the frontdesk/call-center and/or listening and rectifying patient concerns as the Patient Advocate.

Within 3 years I went from Entry-level Clerk to Management.

My number one focus is providing superb customer service with dignity and integrity.

The hardest part of my job is not having the "tools" needed to do that job.

The best part of my job was to see or hear a happy customer/patient. – less
