Great Place to work after High School
Electronics Technician (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 20, 2014
After joining the Navy, I utilized this for the last 8 years for educational purposes and to hone management and teamwork skills. The Navy provides this and more to the cream of the crop. The most enjoyable part of my job was traveling to exotic places, helping others and gaining valuable experience working with a diverse workforce.

o Lead petty officer (Former Employee), U.S. Naval Station, Annapolis MdJuly 18, 2014
Pros: government job, good work to personal time
Cons: none really
A typical day was working in the office keeping records straight, working on the boats with the engine men and craft masters, leading a group of people teaching them safety and work habits. My supervisor was great, he did what ever he could to make things run smooth. The same goes with my co-workers. Everyone worked as a single unit. The hardest part – more... of my job was doing duty every three days. Besides that, the job was very enjoyable. – less

A typical day at work
Operation Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 18, 2014
A typical day at work for the U.S Navy started at 7:00 am until 5:00 pm. In the morning a meeting is normally held to put on the work schedule for that day. After the meeting, your time is spent collecting the tools you may need and putting out the information to your team members. After everything has been collecting and has a full understanding of – more... what needs to be done you start your day of work. If you are in a certain position, you may have meetings to attend throughout the day. – less

The US Navy is a great place for management experience.
Supply Officer (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: get to see the world!
Cons: long deployments away from family & friends.
In the US Navy you spend a lot of time away from your home & family-it's in the nature of the position. The people I worked with were amazing and you can never get the same level of camaraderie as you will working in a career like this. The hardest part is the time away from your family & life. The most enjoyable part is the amazing people you meet – more... and work with. – less

WORK PLACE
Culinary Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 17, 2014
A typical day at work for myself, was enjoyable. Being able to provide a service of comfort to the rest of crew, was a great moment. I have learned the importance of leadership and customer service. I have also learned how to handle many situations in a professional manner. learning the importance to lead a team and train them in every aspect of the – more... hotel and restaurant career. My co-workers were great to work with, as we supported each other in every area. The hardest part of my job, I would have to say is when the Military went to, pre-made foods. The most enjoyable part of my job, is getting the satisfaction that I provided a service that went above and beyond . I also enjoyed seeing the faces of those I assisted and receiving feedback. – less

World's Finest Navy
Work Center Supervisor (Former Employee), Oceana, VAJuly 17, 2014
A typical day involved all things Navy, but there was always a sense of pride when the end of the day came. Management is subject to change and is always open to interpretation because some people are meant to be leaders and others are not. The hardest part of the job is knowing you'll be separated from your family at one point or another. The best – more... part of the job, though, is feeling the sense of pride that only accomplishment can bring. – less

I enjoyed my time as a U.S. Navy Sailor.
Boatswain Mate (Active/Reserve) (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 17, 2014
Being a member of the worlds greatest Navy is an accomplishment that I will always treasure.
The places I was able to visit and the experiences are priceless.
Being a Sailor is very hard work but it is one of the most rewarding things a person could experience.
One of the hardest things about the job is being away from family and friends.
One of the – more... best things is the memories that are created everyday and in every area of the world you get to visit. – less
