Great Comraderie
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJune 30, 2015
Pros: Diverse environment
It was my pleasure to work along a diverse group of individuals from all walks of life. The comraderie and selflessness of certain individuals to achieve a common goal and serve our nation under the same cloth was something pleasing to wake up to everymorning.

It was definitely a challenging career
Military Wife (Former Employee), Mayport Naval Station, FLJune 30, 2015
Pros: Benefits, being able to say that I ran the household singlehandly while my spouse was defending our country, helping the military in my own way.
Cons: The exasperation of any dysfunction in the military spouse.
If you have a healthy relationship, being a Navy wife can be very rewarding. If you are in an unhealthy relationship, your spouse being in the military only makes it more difficult.

Small arms/crew serve weapons instructor (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAJune 30, 2015
Pros: consistant pay check
Cons: politics
I was in for 6 six years, but its time to move on and do bigger and better things. Loved the job! A typical work day is from 6am to 4pm or maybe later. I learned everything about mulit million dollar weapon systems. MY co works were my management, and the most enjoyable part of my job was out on the gun range, teaching.

long days, short nights and a whole lot of work.
auxiliary mechanic submarines (Former Employee), norfolk vaJune 30, 2015
Pros: an excellent learning environment
Cons: too many rules and regulations prevented too much work.
constant working environment along with long days so you have to grab your laughter where you can and try to enjoy the time you had with family when you did make it home. Otherwise it was you and the crew so when you had new guys come in you had to teach them how to assimilate and become part of the workforce which generates for many fun times as well as aggravation at a new mind trying to grasp the monstrosity that is submarine qualifications while still trying to complete work assignments. all in all a great time just not enough for family outside of work.

Working on jet engines
Jet Mechanic (Former Employee), Lemoore CA and Rota SpainJune 30, 2015
Pros: 30 days paid vacation, free meals, free place to live.
Cons: Working odd hours when your used to day hours.
I worked on the jet engines that would go on the aircraft. I also worked a few months with the military police. This is where I learned how to do my job fast but accurately, and where I learned how to pay attention to the minute details to make sure everything was done correctly. I also learned to be disciplined in making sure I got to work on time and on the days I was scheduled for. Management was good to me in helping me learn everything I needed to make sure things were done the right way. My co-workers were easy to get along with and I found it interesting to learn about their various backgrounds. The hardest part of the job was lifting the heavier items. The most enjoyable part was putting the engines together the correct way and then watch them get put on the aircraft, knowing the pilots would be safe when doing their missions.

United States Navy
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee), Beaufort, SCJune 29, 2015
Pros: Benefits and education
Cons: Time away from family and restrictions to individuality
A typical day in the Navy begins with arriving to work at least 15 minutes early. We muster and find out what the game plan is for the day and where we are assigned, and any requirements to be taken care of. I learned to professionalism, time management, customer service, critical thinking, how to lead and how to follow. Management was mostly efficient. There are several different styles and I believe I experienced them all. Co-workers were more like family. We have to be able to help where there's a shortage in order to make the environment flexible and manageable for us all. The hardest part of the job would be the long hours away from my children at times. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you are constantly learning new things and experiencing different things with different people. The Navy is very diverse and you have the opportunity to get to know people from many cultures.

Boatswain' s Mates (BM) (Former Employee), Mayport, FLJune 28, 2015
Pros: Developement and Growth, Good first step out of school
Cons: recruiters are lyers, do your own research
All branches of our military offer a great foundation for men and women right out of HS, however if you can go to college first and go in as an Officer.. even better.

The ability to travel the world, save money, and get a free education trump any opportunities you will find in the street.
