I was a culinary specialist.
Culinary Specialist (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – June 24, 2016
A typical day at work in the Navy was mustering (checking-in) at 7:00am and having announcements made, having our tasks of that day passed down to us, and starting cleaning stations for an hour. I have learned a wide array of thing by being in the military. I have learned first aid, basic seamanship, customer service, how to cook, hospitality, integrity, honor, courage, and how to be committed to my job and co-workers. I learned honesty, and teamwork. I learned that hard work and dedication pays off in the future. My management was also my leadership. They were by the books, they taught me everything I know, and the positive values I live by today. They taught me teamwork is what gets a job done, they taught me that everyone has a purpose and a task to make the ship run. Without one of us the job will never get finished. My co-workers taught me a lot, as well as learned a lot from me. The hardest part of the job was advancement. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different people from all walks of life, and getting to work as a team.
The pros of this job was traveling the world.
The cons of this job was being deployed away from my family, for long periods of time.
