Many priceless experiences and opportunities
Training Department Manager/Leading Petty Officer (Current Employee), TInker AFB, OKAugust 31, 2015
The interaction with people is priceless and once you create a positive relationship and reputation people look to you for guidance. There is no substitute for being an instructor, mentor, and friend. The Navy has provided a very valuable environment to allow these things to thrive. I am very thankful for the 20 years I have spent with the Navy and would not trade them for anything.

Program Manager (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 31, 2015
Muster with your division. The plan of the day/week is put out. Maintenance team is established, you then check out tools and get the go ahead to begin the project. Proceed until the day is coming to a close, turn in tools and give the Bosn a brief where you are at as far as the maintenance job goes.

Not for everyone
Technician, Electrical Work Center (Former Employee), World WideAugust 31, 2015
The military is not for everyone but it was something I went into with the mindset of completing my 20yrs. Getr rid of the Current adminstration and replace it with people that want America to prosper rather than falter and it will be a fuin job again.

Continuous Training Cyle
Plant Manager (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 31, 2015
Pros: Health Coverage, 30 days vacation a year, tax advantages
Cons: Deployment & extended travel
In a course of two years, you transition through phases of a training cycle. There are periods of maintenance, training, integrated/fleet training and deployment. Many time sensitive tasks and critical repairs take place with numerous training and collateral opportunities to diversify your career. This cycle repeats itself at different stages for every command. When at shore, opportunities are available to increase personal and professional development.

Personnel Specialist (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 30, 2015
Pros: The people!!!! The places you see aren't too bad either!
I would never discourage anyone from being a part of the US Military. I learned so much about myself and how to interact with others. Working in an administration office is tough work, but some of the most rewarding.

US NAVY
Machinist Mate Technician (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAAugust 29, 2015
Pros: healthcare, retirement, experience, schools
Cons: shortbreaks, long working hours, deployements for 8+ months at a time.
The US NAVY is a fast pace environment. Paying attention to detail is crucial while conducting evolutions. Maintenance in the engineering plant on multi million dollar equipment leaves room for no error. My co-workers were all hard working self motivating individuals. The hardest part of my job as a engineer in the Navy is being away from loved ones. The most enjoyable part was the valuable experience of new daily task, and challenges.

Hospital Corpsman Dental Assistant (Current Employee), Joint Base Pearl Harbor HickamAugust 28, 2015
Pros: benefits and people you meat
Cons: management, hours
I would recommend the navy to anyone who would like a good stepping stone into starting a career. It is an awesome experience just not one that I personally felt was for me. You learn really great skills that you can take with you to the civilian side. I was a hospital corpsman dental assistant and I LOVED my job. The doctors that I worked with were amazing!
