Could be the best or worst experience of your life depending on attitude and willingness to participate or volunteer. Leadership positions can be attained with ease and the benefits, pay and schooling are unmatched.
Operations Specialist (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – September 27, 2016
There is no such thing as a typical day in the Navy. It is fast paced as well as physically and mentally challenging. The Navy teaches a lot of discipline and management control. Success in the Navy is attainable but through self assertiveness. During your time serving, you have different job titles and is required to work in different departments throughout the command on top of the job title you received when you joined. When providing the extra services, the Navy gives you the training you need to do these jobs and then you can collect the experience once you work in that field for a while. It also involves working with senior and junior sailors, completing daily tasks which consist of preservation, maintenance, and supervising in completing navigational tasks. The most enjoyable part was traveling to different parts of the world, as well as meeting new people and developing new friendships.
Cryptologic Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 27, 2016
I will never regret serving in the United States Navy. I am very thankful for all of the opportunities I was afforded, not only from the training, but for seeing other areas of the world and learning about cultures different than mine. I highly recommend anyone to do at least one enlistment, the sense of family and belonging you get is something that you will not find anywhere else.
Gunners mate Missiles (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – September 27, 2016
I learned a lot of what is meant in HONOR while serving in the Navy and feel all should do the same We can preach about Honor and Loyalty but until one has served he does not truly feel this in their heart
Busy, extensive hours and dangerous/hazardous work environment
Machinist Mate (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – September 27, 2016
The US NAVY has its ups and downs but for the most part, servicing my country and helped gain the skills I need for the civilian life. Not only was I able to obtain work ethic through long and treacherous hours of preservation and maintenance of my equipment and standing watch on propulsion machinery but I learned to be part of a team and lead others as well with the intentions of not boosting myself but creating an equal environment. Learning to do obtain these skills took lots of time through trials and tribulations. I will bring experience and work ethic to you.
Ship Hazard Prevention (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 25, 2016
A typical day would include making sure fire fighting equipment was ready at all time. I've learned a lot of things while being in the military, attention to detail, how to handle situations under extreme pressure, and the ability to lead and follow.
Supply Corps Officer (Former Employee) – Mayport, FL – September 25, 2016
outstanding comraderie pay is not great but gained life and career changing job and leadership skills excellent on the job training advancement is not great work/life balance is lacking one of the best jobs i've ever had
The thing that really had me get out and separate was the leadership. It was lacking knowledge and the ability to take charge of situations that could be handled a lot differently. In other situations there would be too much leadership and it would lead to multiple supervisors yelling at you for what you were told by another supervisor. Enough about that, the military is a great way to earn your gi bill and get school paid for. If you can tough it out for 4 yers then yes it's worth it.
