Machinery Repairman (Former Employee) – Pearl Harbor, HI – August 14, 2014
Life in the military in peace time is wonderful. A chance to learn new skills and a trade and to experience the world. In time of war, it can be irrecoverable. But I believe it is always rewarding. As an MR3, I felt my work was necessary and appreciated. Completing a project under time constraints was its own reward. Really, who can complain about a job that offers free room and board, free medical, dental, free travel, and still gives you a pay check and four weeks paid vacation from the first year?

The navy was the most fulfilling job I have had. A great place to grow and learn valuable life skills and to proudly serve your country If I could do it all over again I would make a life career out of it

I would recommend the US Navy to as many highly qualified High School and college graduates as I could. The opportunities and benefits are endless. Its right there in front of them if they take a chance.
Missile Technician (Former Employee) – Kings Bay Base, GA – August 14, 2017
A typical day at work was learning more and more about the missiles that we worked on. Learning about the software used to operate said devices and how everything operated and flowed together. Management was very effective on dealing with problems that one may have had. Being new to the job itself was probably the most difficult part of the job being that one does not know the ins and outs or little tricks that more senior personnel would know. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to build the relations with my fellow shipmates and knowing that if one is having troubles with anything that one or more person is willing to do what they can to makes things more endearing for you.
Naval Petty Officer (Current Employee) – Great Lakes, IL – August 14, 2017
the navy is a good place to learn a trade and get proficient in one or many jobs the work day will be very long hours usually until the job is finished. with that I have learned many things and now can fix just about anything since there was no store to just go buy a new one we had to make parts and fit them so they would work the best part of the job was seeing new country's and traveling but was hard at the same time to be away from my wife and kids.
