Place which fosters great potential for growth and self development
Cytology Technician (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLApril 25, 2015
A Cytotechnologist is responsible for assisting Pathologists by prescreening specimens for the presence of precancerous/cancerous cells. In the medical field as a whole, especially within the military culture, you truly gain an unparellelled appreciation by way of understanding that every specimen collected or processed is more than just that...it is someone's loved one.

Management is an inescapable duty as a military member. However, just as much as management is expected to manage, it is imperative for all to recognize the necessity to be just as effective as a follower regardless of rank or title.

The hardest part of being a Cytotechnologist comes by way of missing precancerous cells during the screening phase. Mostly because it shakes the faith in your ability to catch the most obscure cancerous cells.

P-3 Flight Engineer Instructor (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLApril 24, 2015
Pros: See the world
Cons: Some one must man the watch.
Chose your rate; chose your fate. The military isn't for someone that doesn't want to work hard for their country. If job satisfaction is something you seek, today's Navy has it and then some.

Pros: Benefits
Cons: Travel Alot
I learned a lot from being in the Navy and living aboard a ship but the most important things are that you have to learn to not be selfish, accepting of others who may be different, always be on time and most importantly patience.

Machinist Mate (MM2) (Former Employee), Norfulk VirginiaApril 24, 2015
Pros: Travel
Cons: Not home very often.
A typical day at work would began at 7am. Morning muster and work assignments. You work from 7 am till 8 or 9 pm.
I learned to work on hydraulics, pneumatics, pumps, valves, firefighting and first ad. Co-workers are great. You build lasting friendships that to this day I still have. Hardest part of the job is leaving for deployment for a minimum of 6 months. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the world.

The US Navy is an outstanding organization after 20 years you see a lot of changes. Both the good and bad. The works are some of the best and brightest in the US. It takes a lot of character to serve and fight for your country. I would not trade this experience for anything.

Maintenance Manager (Current Employee), San Diego, CaApril 23, 2015
Pros: Loved it
Cons: Spent a calualted 5 totals years away from home in 20 years.
I loved serving in the US Navy. It begins me sadness that I now have to retire and transition into the workforce. I meet a lot of good people and picked up a lot of transferable skills that could help an organization out. The skills that stand out are my management skills. I believe that it is not always necessary to be the subject matter expert to be a good leader. You must possess manger qualities to be successful as a manager.

Great experience, poor career
Information Systems Technician (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAApril 23, 2015
Pros: co-workers feel like family, travel, great medical benifits, steady pay, pays for college
Cons: Away from family, long work hours, exposure to harmful chemicals, poor management skills
The Navy is great if you need a way to get out of a small town and pay for college. The benifits are fantastic, and you will get to travel (if you are medically sound). The draw backs vary for each person. If you can just go with the flow and not let things get to you, it's a great job.
