Missile Technician 2nd Class (Former Employee) – St. Marys, GA; Portsmouth, VA – October 29, 2013
3 month deployments with very little contact with family or friends, while out to sea. Long, hard days while in a up keep setting. The most enjoyable part of my military service was the honor of say that at 21 years old I was working on nuclear misslies.
Administrative Clerk (Current Employee) – Naval Air Station Lemoore, CA – June 22, 2017
I loved my 3 years and 6 months in the Navy. Though, I will not suggest anyone enlist in the navy. If you value sleep, your education, your individuality and freedom, do not enlist. The navy is not what its lead to be believed. Your not saving the world, its being run by cowards who are way to soft, you can get kicked out of the navy for not being properly trained and it not being your fault. Its mentally tough. You work 75+ hours a week. Your getting paid $8.25 an hour and you work unpaid overtime. Its not the best working environment.
Aviation Ordnanceman First Class Petty Officer/E-6 (Former Employee) – California – June 21, 2017
A typical work day was anywhere from 12-14 hours. The people who you work with becomes family. There isn't good balance between family and work. The hardest part about the Navy if you're family oriented leaving for 6-12 months isn't healthy.
Student Pilot (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – June 21, 2017
I was proud to serve this country and my only negative feeling is that I didn't get to continue my career due to political agendas. I would go back and continue my service to this great county under the direction of the Navy any day, any time.
Journalist (3rd class petty officer) (Former Employee) – Selfridge Air National Guard Base, MI – June 21, 2017
I enjoyed my fellow shipmates (though I was at an air facility), and learned quite a bit during my time of service. I trained as a journalist, which was a great education and enabled me to get into the radio field once I was discharged.

Information Technology Specialist (Former Employee) – Ft. Meade, MD – June 21, 2017
My military experience is without any regrets. It was fulfilling, rewarding and an adventure. The twenty plus years of service provided me with valuable work experience in a diverse culture. I gained certifications that have been beneficial in my career. The most difficult part of the military career was the time away from family and friends.
