Greatest Team I've ever worked with
Quarter Master (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 28, 2015
The United States Navy has been well to me. It has taught me a lot about being a leader and take charge in doing a task to better my team. The only reason I'm leaving is because I'm medically separated due to weakness in my left knee. I am very thankful for the opportunities that have been provide and will use what I learned in everyday life.

Third Class Petty Officer (Former Employee), San Diego CAJuly 28, 2015
Pros: company picnics, family outings, and the over all experience
Cons: long hours, and the occasional bad mood
A typical day would consist of doing filing and maintaining files of already in data base clients. The experience was rewarding and interesting to understand all the depths of the location in which I was working. The management was enjoyable and let me do what needed to be done, they also took my advice on certain issues and applied when allowed to be applied. The co-workers were understanding, flexible and fun to be around most days. Every one has their off days and that is probably the hardest part about the job. when someone comes into work and there is no possible way to cheer them up. That emotion gets taken out on the person they are talking with and you must maintain a level of professionalism. The most enjoyable part of the day was knowing that someone was being helped in a way that was respectful and the appreciation that was given, a smile a thank you or a you made my day always was very rewarding to hear.

Culinary Specialist, Submarine (Former Employee), Groton, CTJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Great benifits, pay, perks.
Cons: Treated terribly unless your good at your job, full of harassment.
My career for the navy was short lived due to needs of the navy and being removed however due to the benefits, the pay, and incentives you gain as a member of the military and with our current cost of living I recommend that anyone should remain in the navy if they can. After leaving I now make 3/4's of what I was making and the fact is that in this day and age we need to slave away in the military just to survive.

Hospital Corpsman (Former Employee), Great Lakes, ILJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Meeting all my shipmates.
Cons: Being away from your family while you are on tour.
Joining the Navy was one of the best decisions in my life.. It taught me discipline and taught me a lot about leadership. The Navy provides so many opportunities and experiences if you want them. I went into the Navy as boy and I came out a man. Being in the navy taught me a lot about myself and gave me the tools to better myself in whatever I want to do.

Aviation Structural Mechanic/ Seabee (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Life changer
Cons: Being away from family during deployments
Joining the Navy the day after 9/11 was the best career move I ever made. I met some of the best people I've ever known in the Navy. Also the experience of working with planes on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier was the best time of my life. Very hard work but I loved every minute.

Great job for traveling the world
Database/System Administrator (Former Employee), Mangilao, GuamJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Defining country
Cons: Long work hours and six month cruise
Job usually starts early in the morning with a meeting to pass down requirements for the day. I learned to deal with people from different cultures, and races. Managers are knowledgeable in their duties and require workers to be the same. Co-workers are also friends and can sometimes be like family. The hardest part of the job is that depending on the current events you may have to work twelve hours on and twelve hours off for a week or more, not including other duties that will be assigned. The most enjoyable part of the job is traveling to the many different countries you would probably not have an opportunity to travel to had you not joined.
