Gas Turbine System Technician/Operator (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 29, 2013
The pace is very hectic and fast, then have ti wait for a long time. The job takes you away for long time, but it's all for a noble cause. The people are the finest you could ask for, you look out for them and certainly they look out for you. The most enjoyable part of the job is travel and knowing your job makes a difference to people abroad and particularly at home.
Machinist Mate (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – February 22, 2017
Deployments, oceans and education? Why not! This was one of the best times of my life. All of the 3 star ratings are purely objective. I had great chiefs and terrible ones, I had some trouble seeing family at times (this was the terrible chief), you sign a contract so job security is a bonus but advancing was near impossible due to my rate (Machinist Mate) and I was unable to change it. If I could do it again, I would. Just great.

Naval Cryptologic Chief (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – February 22, 2017
Great opportunities. Your future is up to you. You can retire after twenty years of service, no one else can offer you that. More than likely you will spend a lot of time away from family and loved ones.
Travel, job security, reatirement
Quality of life. A lot of time spent away from family.

A typical day at work is usually and easy day if everyone is on the same page and acting as a team. I have learned that there is reason for such strict discipline and following rules and keeping a military bearing is essential to the success of the military. The most enjoyable part of the job is finishing a long day and knowing what you've done served a bigger purpose.
AVIATION ORDNANCEMAN, Second Class (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 22, 2017
I enjoyed the hard task that was giving to me everyday. As a leader I supervised up to 30 personnel. the hardest part of the job was training personnel to becoming a top influence to the command. The most I enjoyed about the job is the brotherhood.
Fire Controlman (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – February 22, 2017
Minus the not so good command I was forced to be at, the Navy was by far one of the funnest places jobs I ever had. Never had a dull moment and the people were encouraging. Some members of the Chain of Command were a bit unethical. But overall best place ever.
The Naval Nuclear Power Program is a very intellectually demanding job that is very fast paced and demanding. It requires lots of motivation and drive to succeed and can be very rewarding if you enjoy problem solving and and working in a team environment with people from all over the country. I have made lifelong friends and am very grateful for the opportunities that it has afforded me.
