Well structured and easy going environment to work
System Admin (Former Employee), Bethesda, MDJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Difficult to advance
Cons: Awesome benefits
Worked as part of a four(4) man team mostly Creating and maintaining user accounts, profiles, security, rights, disk space and process monitoring.
The environment is mostly headed by Military officers and 2 civilians. Department consisted of about 24 military and civilian personnel. Normally teams were integrated.
Job growth or advancement was limited to civilian personnel which didn't favor me then but it they made sure we kept abreast with our specialty. There was always someone eager to lend a hand to make sure all task are completed on time. We held job training days monthly to further equip personnel.

10 year experienced Military Veteran; Logistical support to over 3,000 US Soldiers and civilians with zero discrepancies;
Logistical Analyst (Former Employee), Patuxent River, MDJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Money management, teamwork
Cons: Long days while on deployment
Inventoried items, stocked and recorded discrepancies. Ordered items needed for division for deployment. I learned to balance receipt books and process order forms. Management was helpful in making sure that I was given a list of items and quantities that needed to be ordered prior to deployment. Myself and other employees worked together to make sure that 100% inventory was complete in a timely manner. The hardest part of the job was making sure that all numbers and money was input correctly. The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom to make decisions on my own

High stress, High Enjoyment
Avionics Electronics Technician (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Benefits, defending your country
Cons: Schedule, sacrifices
US Navy is what the commercials say it is on most days. High stress but lots of fun. There were days where I didn't enjoy myself and days where I had so much fun I was exhausted at the end of it. Well worth the time I put in and I wouldn't take it back for anything.

Greatest Team I've ever worked with
Quarter Master (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 28, 2015
The United States Navy has been well to me. It has taught me a lot about being a leader and take charge in doing a task to better my team. The only reason I'm leaving is because I'm medically separated due to weakness in my left knee. I am very thankful for the opportunities that have been provide and will use what I learned in everyday life.

office work
Third Class Petty Officer (Former Employee), San Diego CAJuly 28, 2015
Pros: company picnics, family outings, and the over all experience
Cons: long hours, and the occasional bad mood
A typical day would consist of doing filing and maintaining files of already in data base clients. The experience was rewarding and interesting to understand all the depths of the location in which I was working. The management was enjoyable and let me do what needed to be done, they also took my advice on certain issues and applied when allowed to be applied. The co-workers were understanding, flexible and fun to be around most days. Every one has their off days and that is probably the hardest part about the job. when someone comes into work and there is no possible way to cheer them up. That emotion gets taken out on the person they are talking with and you must maintain a level of professionalism. The most enjoyable part of the day was knowing that someone was being helped in a way that was respectful and the appreciation that was given, a smile a thank you or a you made my day always was very rewarding to hear.

Culinary Specialist, Submarine (Former Employee), Groton, CTJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Great benifits, pay, perks.
Cons: Treated terribly unless your good at your job, full of harassment.
My career for the navy was short lived due to needs of the navy and being removed however due to the benefits, the pay, and incentives you gain as a member of the military and with our current cost of living I recommend that anyone should remain in the navy if they can. After leaving I now make 3/4's of what I was making and the fact is that in this day and age we need to slave away in the military just to survive.
