Navy Reserves (Former Employee), Bethesda, MDJuly 9, 2014
Pros: travel, benefits, people and places
Cons: leaving my child
was planning on entering the full time Navy through the back door of being in the Naval Reserves. I enjoyed the atmosphere the travel and being with others in my area of work, I enjoyed traveling and going to new places and meeting new people from other states. The job of working with the Seabees was the best, I would travel with them when they would – more... go out to the field and qualify with the M16 which I also was able to do. I would report to my Commander when AI showed up, would get my assignment for the day and do what was assigned me. I enjoyed taking care of and wearing my uniform. the hardest part of the job is when my baby came along and I would have to leave him, and that is what ended my Navy career, I felt like I couldn't leave him for weeks or months at a time. – less

very negative workplace
Machinist Mate (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 8, 2014
a typical day of work is coming in at 0700 and standing around unil about 0730 then having quarters and starting cleaning stations which is cleaning the same exact thing for one hour everyday. Then when thats over you have to finish whatever your worklist may be which has a wide variety from painting and needle gunning all the way up to rebuilding one – more... of the pumps in the Machinery Room. Then you go to lunch from 1100 until 1230. After lunch you continue to progress on the worklist then when its done you clean up and go home. I learned a lot from the navy mostly negative but it builds a lot of character. When it comes to co workers from an E5 up most of them just sit around and joke around all day while the lower people bust their tail to get the jobs done. The hardest part of the job would have to be being stuck on the ship all day with the same people and a lot of the time you really don't have anything to do you're just stuck there. – less

Job filled with Honor and Integrity
Airman (Former Employee), NAS Lemoore, CAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: medical, dental and housing
Cons: so much time away from the family
The United States Navy inspires honor, integrity and a valuable work ethic that ensures success. A typical day in the Navy is unpredictable and can be quite stressful, but at the end of the day you are able to go home knowing you made a difference. I learned that freedom comes at an extremely high price and there are those like myself willing to do – more... whatever it takes to make sure our families can live in the freedom we have today. The hardest part of this job is saying goodbye to people you become family with and knowing that you probably will not get the chance to ever see them again however, the best part of the job is getting to know new people who came from different places and getting to hear their adventures and the things they saw where they previously were. – less

Great Work Environment and a great pallet for teaching and learning!
Office Automation Assistant/Secretary (Current Employee), Indian Head, MDJuly 8, 2014
Pros: education, experience, travel
Cons: long overnight duties
Working for the U.S. Navy was an amazing experience. I got to travel and meet some very interesting and amazing people. Many have impacted my life and taught me so much about life. Management was pretty tough on us as young corpsman, but they molded us into the people we are today. Much that I know now I owe to the Navy. There really wasn't anything – more... too hard about my job. Of course being away from family can be hard, but I would consider that to be one of the best parts of my job was the traveling and experiencing new things. As a hospital corpsman we did alot of training exercises out at sea, and I learned so much! – less

Pros: a second family
Cons: leaving your first
Being in the navy is like having a second family, you learn so much about yourself and other cultures and you see the world. The hardest part is leaving home so much but most of the time its worth it.

Military
Hospital Corpsman (Former Employee), Washington, DCJuly 8, 2014
Pros: too many to list
Cons: time away from my family, possible death, bad commands
Life in the military is never easy. You learn how to adapt and overcome.
I was a Hospital Corpsman (medic) with combat experience. So I seen some amazing things most Doctors never will. I also have performed procedures most licensed RN's won't do. The Navy gives us the opportunity to learn these skills because we maybe the only ones in that time and – more... place to save those Marines/peoples lives. I'm very proud of my time in the military. – less
