Communications Assistant Leading Petty Officer (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAApril 26, 2015
Managed 15 to 20 sailors in the day to day world of communications. The hardest part of the job was being away from my daughters for months at a time.

Place which fosters great potential for growth and self development
Cytology Technician (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLApril 25, 2015
A Cytotechnologist is responsible for assisting Pathologists by prescreening specimens for the presence of precancerous/cancerous cells. In the medical field as a whole, especially within the military culture, you truly gain an unparellelled appreciation by way of understanding that every specimen collected or processed is more than just that...it is someone's loved one.

Management is an inescapable duty as a military member. However, just as much as management is expected to manage, it is imperative for all to recognize the necessity to be just as effective as a follower regardless of rank or title.

The hardest part of being a Cytotechnologist comes by way of missing precancerous cells during the screening phase. Mostly because it shakes the faith in your ability to catch the most obscure cancerous cells.

P-3 Flight Engineer Instructor (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLApril 24, 2015
Pros: See the world
Cons: Some one must man the watch.
Chose your rate; chose your fate. The military isn't for someone that doesn't want to work hard for their country. If job satisfaction is something you seek, today's Navy has it and then some.

Machinist Mate (MM2) (Former Employee), Norfulk VirginiaApril 24, 2015
Pros: Travel
Cons: Not home very often.
A typical day at work would began at 7am. Morning muster and work assignments. You work from 7 am till 8 or 9 pm.
I learned to work on hydraulics, pneumatics, pumps, valves, firefighting and first ad. Co-workers are great. You build lasting friendships that to this day I still have. Hardest part of the job is leaving for deployment for a minimum of 6 months. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the world.
