Pros: consumes a lot of family time.

Fun in the sun.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician (Former Employee), White Sands Missile Range, NMNovember 16, 2014
Pros: excellent promotions, and chances if you keep your nose clean.
Cons: hard, tough, and dirt jobs. at the end of the day it was worth it because the mission was accomplished.
Opportunity abound.
My life outside the military is 100 percent boring compared to just one day at work.
I had chances to do things and see things I never thought I could. I traveled to foreign lands, saw and protected heads of state, and wore the uniform of a US Army Staff Sargent proudly.

Communication Spc, Team Leader (Former Employee), Fort Polk, LANovember 16, 2014
Pros: everything.
Cons: you are always at work.
Joined the U.S. Army after my first year of college. I was able to learn a lot and there was a lot of room for advancement. A typical work day was waking up at 5am, starting work at 6, and staying active with work training until around 5pm. Great benefits. I deployed twice with the military. Most enjoyable part is you work with a family.

Basic Training, and everything that comes with it.
Trainee in Basic Training (Former Employee), Fort Sill, OklahomaNovember 16, 2014
Pros: free food, exercise, decent wages, excellent training
A typical day is spent anywhere from an unorganized frenzy of confusion to a slow, unproductive crawl. I've learned a great deal about taking care of myself, being a better person, and how to best work in a large group. The Officers in charge were very professional, if a bit moody. This is most likely because of the training environment however. Fellow – more... soldiers were immature and in need of a good kicking, but still managed to slink by and get assigned tasks done. Hardest part of Basic training is other people. Most enjoyable part is Rifle Ranges and the Grenade Range. – less

The ability to be flexible
18F Intelligence Analyst/ First Line Supervisor (Current Employee), JBLM, Tacoma WA, 98433November 16, 2014
A typical day at work I would have to say, you have to be flexible and willing to adapt to change at a minute notice. I learned that out of the box thinking can be of great help at times and can impact your environment tremendously. You have to have the ability to manage day-to-day issues, my co-workers are some of the most diverse individual that I – more... have had the pleasure to be around. The hardest of my job is managing multiple events and to work out any issues that may occur with the events and any giving time. The most enjoyable part of my job as is the diversity and the changes that come with it. To see the product to the end and the success of the event. – less

Specialist 4 (Former Employee), Fort PolkNovember 16, 2014
Waking up early as 3 AM and staying at work late is quite a normal week day. Though there is a feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day. Physical training was tough but it always boost my self confidence. I loved working at rations. There's physical part like unloading trucks and putting the food boxes away to their respective freezers/ration – more... rooms. And there is budgeting and reporting. Overall it was a great experience. – less
