Aviation Ordinance/Petty Officer Third Class (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAJanuary 30, 2015
Working in the Navy I got to experience things that I believed that I would never be able to do or see. and to go places I never thought I could go see with my own eyes. It was very fast paced and lots of work to do.

Hard critical thinking job, but totally worth it.
Aviation Mechanic (AM) (Current Employee), Red Bank NJJanuary 30, 2015
Professional at all times, Following many rules and regulations. Learning a lot and applying it to real life situatons. Net working. Hardest part is learning everything and remembering. Learning not just about your job but about how things are in the military. Being the best at everything you do. The most enjoyable part is the off times when you get to relax and go explores different cities and places. Meeting new people. Helping people. Learning so many things.

Very detail oriented work environment
Boatswain mate (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJanuary 30, 2015
Pros: benefits and traveling
Cons: extended periods of time away from family
Working in the most professional environment that I have ever been a part of began with early morning uniform inspections. This was almost an everyday occurrence. This was followed up by up by the plan of the workday put out by each individual division leader and each division was guaranteed a full days worth of work. With the amount of work that was tasked to us it was good to know that there were people working along side of you that were as hard working and genially good individuals. The hardest part of the job had to be the deployments. For a six month period of time you were overseas, stuck out to sea for extended periods of time constantly working around the clock. At the same time the deployments were just as enjoyable. I was able to travel and see places that I never imagined I would ever go to and enjoy these places with some great people.

Productive work enviornment with uncomparable comoradity.
Electrical Work Center Supervisor (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: free medical for you and dependants, stable job, constant learning oportunities.
Cons: short breaks, away from home for 1.5 of my 3 years in service.
The hours are long and never seem to end but never once do you feel like you're not learning. So many things are happening at the same time, forcing you to constantly stay on your toes. The feeling of keeping your ship on mission to protect the United States of America is so remarkable that it seems like at times nothing could compare.

HT2 Petty Officer (Former Employee), Little Creek VAJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: training, travel, friends.
Cons: missing christmas, while being thousands of miles away from home
I joined the Navy in 1975 in the ending period of Nam. I came out of boot camp to peace time as Saigon had fallen. I was 17 years old and wanted to serve my country.

I did my years (4 active, 2 inactive) of duty and was discharged Honorably in 1979. I got to travel halfway around the world twice, and go through the Panama Canal! Just the friendships I made and the things I did made it well worth my while.

Network Engineer (Current Employee), Washington, DCJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: knowledgeable staff, great working hours
Cons: management is kind of lacking, too many different departments that accomlsi the same tasks, over zealous supervisors
This job has given me a diverse out look on the IT field. My days are filled with network modifications, redesigns, and regular day to day administrative duties. My co workers are quite the characters! They each bring their own unique skill sets to the table and make the operation networks division the versatile, problem solving, hard charging machine it is today. The hardest part of this job is definitely the stress of immediate changes. Sometimes, a switch fails or a route misbehaves and as an admin, it is our job to find the right switch, configure, configure the routing protocol, etc. And all of this must be done in a span of hours at times! I've (we've) never met a task we haven't met and gracefully overcame. The most enjoyable parts of my job are my co workers (who I constantly teach and constantly learn from) and all the diverse pieces of network equipment I get to use, configure, and troubleshoot every day.

Hospital Corpsman (Current Employee), Gulfport, MSJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: free medical, stable paycheck, travel
Cons: managment
The Navy is a great job for the single sailor who wants to advance. As a sailor of the year I still found my job to be mismanaged by people who just wanted things done their way.

My typical work day starts with PT 0545 and ends at 1700 .

Great way to start your career, very rewarding
Operations Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 29, 2015
Joining the Navy was the best choice I ever made. Leaving was the worst. Benefits are obvious: travel around the world, meet new people and experience multiple cultures, and of course get money for college.

Pros: Rewarding work most of the time, easy to advance if you really put your effort in, travel is great, you can make some lasting friendships, your doing something that matters.

Cons: Pay isn't the best, some days it can seem like you are given idle work just because you need to look busy, some port calls are short and you may be stuck with duty on one of the days you are there and unable to leave the ship. Some of the higher ranking Chiefs and Officers can be difficult to work with and although they don't know what they are doing sometimes, you are still expected to follow the orders.
