US NAVY
Machinist Mate Technician (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAAugust 29, 2015
Pros: healthcare, retirement, experience, schools
Cons: shortbreaks, long working hours, deployements for 8+ months at a time.
The US NAVY is a fast pace environment. Paying attention to detail is crucial while conducting evolutions. Maintenance in the engineering plant on multi million dollar equipment leaves room for no error. My co-workers were all hard working self motivating individuals. The hardest part of my job as a engineer in the Navy is being away from loved ones. The most enjoyable part was the valuable experience of new daily task, and challenges.

Hospital Corpsman Dental Assistant (Current Employee), Joint Base Pearl Harbor HickamAugust 28, 2015
Pros: benefits and people you meat
Cons: management, hours
I would recommend the navy to anyone who would like a good stepping stone into starting a career. It is an awesome experience just not one that I personally felt was for me. You learn really great skills that you can take with you to the civilian side. I was a hospital corpsman dental assistant and I LOVED my job. The doctors that I worked with were amazing!

Experience builder
Senior Advisor (Former Employee), Whidbey Island, WAAugust 28, 2015
Pros: Experience gained in multiple professional areas
Cons: Days, months, Years away from family
Advancement friendly with a broad area of job opportunities. Growth and advancement was challenging; however, anyone who puts in time and effort to succeed will become successful with great mentorship along the way. Deployments were stressful and long, but very rewarding, both self and skill gaining. The most difficult thing about this job was the long days/months/years away from family and home.

Different with every command
Electronics Technician (Former Employee), Global LoctionsAugust 28, 2015
You can get a fantastic life or your life can be a total bummer it really matters on the command you are with and how things play out for you. Also it makes a big difference in how you act at you job. So if your an upstanding sailor life will be great for you but it's not the 50's anymore booze and women is not what the navy is about.

U.S. NAVY - An Adventure
Submarine Squadron Deputy Commander (Former Employee), Silverdale, WAAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Excellent pay and benefits
Cons: Time away from family
If you can dedicate your life to the Navy, you will have excellent opportunities to advance. The first couple of years will be dedicated to training and learning to be a professional officer. Living and working on a ship can be extremely rewarding and interesting but you will be away from home for extended periods of time.

Pros: NA
Cons: Enjoy going to work
Working on the F18's for all those years, really gave me an appreciation of that incredible machine. Great working conditions, and didn't have the run in with politics like so many other jobs. I worked with a great team of men and women. My work is with the training and experience of working on jet planes, this is what I enjoy everyday.
