Empowering and Unique Learning Experience
Aviation Electronics Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 16, 2014
Pros: steady income and interesting co-workers
Cons: 24/7 job and sometimes little room for advancement
The Navy was a great and unique learning experience. A typical day included launching and recovering helicopters, washing helicopters, troubleshooting malfunctions in electronic equipment, etc.
I felt empowered everyday because that is a job I never I could be capable of. In the end the military wasn't a good fit for me but I would encourage anyone – more... who is looking to expand their horizons to consider it. – less

Adventure!
Mixed Gas Diving and Salvage / Engineman (Former Employee), USASeptember 15, 2014
Pros: travel, adventure, memories.
Cons: ice cold water!
My career as a diver in the Navy would begin with a 5 mile run, plan and perform diving operations or preform preventative maintenance on dive gear or boat. The Navy allowed me to work with multiple styles of management and a wide variety of people. There are no hard parts of jobs, just challenges such as the first in water replacement of a propeller – more... on a Trident Submarine. Laying on my back in 80 feet of water at midnight, seeing the moon crystal clear while in Cuba. Just one of many enjoyable parts of my job. – less
