Working for the US Navy was the proudest time of my life.
Deck Division Supervisor (Former Employee), Pearl Harbor, HISeptember 19, 2014
There was nothing typical about a day on the submarine. In port I would organize my crew to tackle whatever exterior maintenance was required. When the submarine was out to sea I operated the AN/BQQ-5C Sonar Suite. My primary duty was safety of ship. I monitored contacts to ensure that we kept a safe distance. The hardest part of the job was being away – more... from my family for extended periods of time. I most enjoyed the fact that I was serving my country and making a difference in the world. – less

A stepping stone in life for maturity, growth, and knowledge.
Information Systems Technician (Former Employee), Mayport, FlSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: benefits, health insurance
Cons: family time, management
The US Navy had provided me with growth and maturity in life. It has also given me an amazing 5 years to learn and succeed in the IT Field. However, when family, i.e. wife or children, become a part of life, the Navy becomes an unfit environment to maintain a stable relationship.

Builder (Former Employee), Port Hueneme, CASeptember 19, 2014
I wouldn't recommend this job to the faint of heart, but it was a fun ride. I was able to really evolve and do as much work as I wanted. As a hard charging, hard worker, I need plenty of work to do, or I just do not succeed. Gotta stay busy.

Challenging and extremely rewarding
Aviation Electrician's Mate (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VASeptember 19, 2014
Pros: rewarding
Cons: schedule
The life of a sailor is very challenging, but extremely rewarding. The skills I gained will be with me for the rest of my life. The most challenging part of being a sailor is the schedule and being away from home. However, the pride of knowing your work and what you do keeps your family, friends and the rest of the nation safe makes up for the challenge.

Instructor (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXSeptember 19, 2014
Members of America’s Navy face everyday challenges, perform specific duties and, invariably, they become better for it. The quality of life when not on sea duty is great. Sea duty is not bad it is just a job. And no matter what you think you know about the U.S. Navy, one thing is true: No two people experience the Navy in the same way

Chief Master-at-Arms (Former Employee), Norfolk, VASeptember 16, 2014
Pros: consistant pay, job security, travel
Cons: travel
There is no typical day in the US Navy. Some common occurrences I dealt with was good order and discipline of other military personnel as well as Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection and Loss Prevention. Management always changes. Hardest part was deployments and time away from family. The most enjoyable part was the travel and the experience of dealing – more... with a mast variety of personnel. – less

Empowering and Unique Learning Experience
Aviation Electronics Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 16, 2014
Pros: steady income and interesting co-workers
Cons: 24/7 job and sometimes little room for advancement
The Navy was a great and unique learning experience. A typical day included launching and recovering helicopters, washing helicopters, troubleshooting malfunctions in electronic equipment, etc.
I felt empowered everyday because that is a job I never I could be capable of. In the end the military wasn't a good fit for me but I would encourage anyone – more... who is looking to expand their horizons to consider it. – less
