Long and Tiring days.
Deck Seaman (Former Employee), Everett, WADecember 18, 2014
Pros: close comradery, unbeatable work ethic.
Cons: your best is never enough.
Work was never ending out at sea. In port days were normal and no stress or yelling superiors walking around all the time. The Navy was a good experience and I learned alot, however treatment varies widely even if your a hard worker. Through all of the things that we had to put up with I ended up getting discharged for hearing loss and am still fighting – more... with the V.A. to get the benefits that I should have recieved. Serving your country is great but there are definitely drawbacks. – less

I worked on multiple aircraft while in the military and loved every minute of it.

It helped mold me into a reliable and responsible adult, and a valuable asset to any company.

Second Class Petty Officer (E (Former Employee), USADecember 17, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, traveling, team work
Cons: n/a
I really loved the military only for the traveling aspect because I know on my own I would not have been able to go to so many different countries without paying out of pocket. Plus he different people and cultures that you come across on a daily basis is awesome because it teaches you diversity and understanding. But it is a learning experience and – more...

Hospital Corpsman
Hospital Corpsman (Former Employee), Illinois, North Carolina, JapanDecember 17, 2014
Pros: in addition to a yearly salary, housing, medical and dental needs, and food is all paid/provided for.
Cons: unpredictable living situations
Being apart of the Hospital Corps can be one of the most rewarding of all military occupations. Not only is it a great segway into the field of healthcare, it is probably the best way to learn what true teamwork is. Whether you serve with the Marine Corps, or whether you work in an ICU, nothing is better than sending you comrades back to duty. As perilous – more... as the job can be, it is met with motivation, and a few centuries worth of pride. – less

Training Program Manager (Former Employee), Fort Gordon, GADecember 16, 2014
Pros: good promotion and training opportunies, affordable family medical care, travel
Cons: long work hours, deployments away from family.
A day at sea normally starts at or before 6 am (known as Zero Six Hundred, or 0600). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided to you. For me, the workday started at 0700 and would end at 1800, 2000, or even 2300. At sea, it isn't unusual to work seven days a week.

In a career, you will have the opportunity to work on "shore duty",

I learned multiple – more... job skills, including personnel management, administrative skills, project management, and other fields.

Healthcare is provided. While it may take a while to get certain specialist care, the bill is totally covered.

The most enjoyable part of the job is making a difference, both for the country and in the lives of those we serve alongside. – less

Navy Corpsman (Medic) (Former Employee), Jacksonville, NCDecember 16, 2014
Pros: work experience
Cons: hours
Days weren't typical. Anything could be going on. I learned how to work as a team because quite frankly that was the only way to work. I evaluated 9-12 personnel at any given time in the latter part of my Naval career. The hardest part of my job was deploying overseas, but even then I learned to persevere. The best part of my job was the people, the – more... military service members that I deployed/worked with. – less

There is no typical day in the military but I have learned a vast variety of skills in my 5 years in service as my resume reflects. I have managed sailors and civilians but the hardest part of the job in the military is being away from family. the most enjoyable part was the learning experience and education.

Great customer service and productive patient care rendered.
Dental/Medical Assistant OB/GYN (Former Employee), Havelock,NC; Kaneohe Bay,HI; Pensacola,FLDecember 15, 2014
Pros: healthcare and customer service
Cons: worked through lunch sometimes
Serving in the U.S. Navy was inspiring, fun, family oriented and productive most days. Greeting patients with a smile was my specialty! I maintained patient records and scheduled appointments. I had the opportunity to assist in multiple departments including specialties. It was my pleasure to learn new and different methods in the field of dentistry – more... and the medical field. Great group of doctors and assistants to work with. My job in the Navy has inspired me to go back to school to pursue a career as a dentist. But the best part of working in the U.S. Navy was indeed an honor to protect the men and women of the U.S. and to serve my country proud! – less
