High tempo, stressful workplace with no room for error.
Pros: Benefits, pay, co-workers, friends
Cons: Short breaks, long hours, deployments
On a daily basis performed over 15 actions a day while managing co-workers. It is a non stop work environment where the smallest mistake could mean someones life.
I personally enjoyed the stressful non stop work environment because I like to stay busy. I also enjoyed the teamwork and camaraderie we built due to the situations we were put in.
The hardest part about the job was the long hours and being away from home.
Management changed constantly, so it had its ups and downs. Sometimes it would run smoothly, others not so much. I just tried to constantly do my job to the best of my abilities without putting anyones life in danger.
