Great job but the Navy isn't for me.
Electricians Mate (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: knowledge, health insurance, job security
Cons: far from home, lack of equality, poor leadership
I like being an Electrician in the Navy, but didn't know the job description involved sweeping water off the ship (when it's raining), and being required to learn about equipment that has nothing to do with my rate. The politics and drama as well as a lack of communication make me feel like I'm working in a high school. I'd much prefer to take my electrical – more... knowledge and apply it to the civilian life. – less
