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

Recieved Great Training and Life Skills
System Administrator / Data Analyst (Current Employee), NAS LemooreSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: training, travel
Cons: time away from family
The United States Navy made me confident in succeeding to be a professional. I learned how to perform extremely well under pressure, and how to be a team-player. My peers' guided me to perform at a higher level, with motivation and mentoring. I would say the hardest part of my job was being away from my family for long periods of time.

Fun and exciting at the Navy
SONAR TECHNICIAN (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 15, 2014
A work day in the navy was always easy and carefree, everyone worked together to complete a task and there were always more people than were really needed so the job got done faster. I learned there that in some cases its more efficient to put 3-4 people on a 2 person job so it will get done faster and depending on the workers, more efficiently. My – more... co-workers were from all walks of life and very interesting to be around. There weren't many parts of the job that were difficult and the most enjoyable part was learning so many new things, and seeing a lot of new places as a part of the job. – less

The Navy taught me a lot, but its not for me.
Electronics Technician 2nd Class Petty Officer (Current Employee), Norfolk, VASeptember 14, 2014
Pros: paycheck and health insurance.
Cons: drama, lies, separation from family.
With having 4 children and a wife, the Navy just isn't my future. Although I have learned a great deal in my field of electronics, It is time for me to move on. The Military is turning into something it is not and I don't want to be apart of it. I will be able to further my education in the near future and move on from the Navy. My wife and my children – more... support me in this. I will not fail. – less

Busy and demanding
Program Assistant (Former Employee), Bethesda, MarylndSeptember 14, 2014
Pros: sick leave
Cons: no time for lunch
Work load falls on a few capable people. Too many chiefs (all engineers) and few indians.
Typical day to monitor hourly payrolls, contracts with contractors to insure compliance, writing contracts and interpreting bids from contractors to insure their ability to comply with the work needed.
Co-workers were the other program assistants and the accounting – more... department. Hardest part of the job was procuring passage to Spain for a water vehicle. Enjoyment was a feeling of doing the job right! – less

A way of life -- not a job
Master-At-Arms (Former Employee), Coronado, CASeptember 14, 2014
Pros: benefits, travel, education
Cons: no unadulterated time off. different way of life than most anything in the civilian world.
The navy is a great way to learn skill sets that are not available in the civilian sector. Traveling is another great thing about the Navy. Some of my favorite times were on deployment on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Simply an amazing experience.

The life lessons that can be learned here are tremendous and I am unable to explain it. The military – more... is a way of life and not just a job. – less

Good Place to Grow
Aviation Electrician (Former Employee), Norfolk, VASeptember 12, 2014
Pros: health care, free shelter, food.
Cons: deployments, 24/7 job. there is no real time off.
When work is available you work with a team to manage that part. Taking it in, documenting it, running it up, if no errors occur run it again. When errors are detected we would attempt to fix it. Then send the part back out to be used again.
I've learned how to manage a team. Skills related to time management, social skills and how to deal with stressful – more... situations.
The hardest part of the job is getting new bosses. Always rotating upper management makes it hard to get to know what your boss wants in terms of work.
I enjoyed the culture the most. I was part of a team; I love being part of a team. – less
