Flight deck fire fighting and parts tracking systems.
ABH (flight deck fire fighter) (Current Employee), Norfolk, VaApril 10, 2014
Pros: fantastic health benefits
Cons: not a lot of family time
Over the last 5 years I have been in charge of multiple fire teams and have gained the skills for leadership. I have worked office jobs toward the end of my career and was directly in charge of the successful disassembly of the ship, USS Enterprise (CVN-65). I have learned how to use computer tracking systems to track and order new parts and have even – more... been involved in parts assembly. I have enjoyed seeing much of the world and meeting other hard working men and women from all walks of life. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity I should never forget. – less

Great worksite
GS-11 DoD Civil Service Electronics Technician (Current Employee), Corpus ChristiApril 10, 2014
This location is a great site and team to be a part of, with much experience here there isn't anything far beyond the abilities of these individuals. I have grown outside of just working on RADAR equipment and my experience has taken me to being more of an all around electronics technician working with communication systems, navigational aids, and even – more... weather equipment. The management and my coworkers make up a great team. Leadership is fair and there is no favoritism or "one way" of doing business here, very open atmosphere. The actual team members are great at making everyone feel welcome and bring you up to speed on anything you're a little "rusty" on. – less

Military life was not for me.
Radioman (Former Employee), LST 1082April 9, 2014
Work days started when I enlisted and ended when I was discharged from the Navy.

I learned basic electricity and electronics theory and practices, International Morse Code, and operations of a variety of radio equipment and the maintenance of the equipment.

Shipmates were alright.

The most enjoyable part of the job was visiting a variety of countries – more... when not in combat zones. – less

Long and unforgiving hours for little compensation and very little consideration for the work force.
Logistical Specialist E-3 (Former Employee), Norfolk VAApril 9, 2014
Pros: consitent work.
Cons: long hours, little pay, demanding deployment cycles.
Every day over seas was a 12 hour shift while enduring temperatures of up to 120 degrees while trapped down inside sweltering store rooms.

In port the 'leadership' shown by our chiefs and officers was poor to say the least. Constantly hampering work flow, making false carrot on a stick promises, and in general showing little regard for their fellow – more... sailors. – less

My Job
Transportation and Maintenance Manager (Current Employee), Naval Station Norfolk, VAApril 8, 2014
Pros: good people and excellent job
Cons: im soon to retire
The easy part of my job is managing good people. The hardest part is dealing with people who get in trouble. I have about 15 years experience in managing people. A typical day at work is having everybody together in the morning to put out information, and then checking up on people and our workload to make sure work is getting done.

Its not for everyone.
Electronics Technician (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAApril 8, 2014
Pros: job security/satisfaction
Cons: deployments
The US Navy has its ups and downs. Ship life can be rough, so can being away from home. The job is very satisfying though and the people are great. All walks of life; all colors and creeds; all living together, working together, trying to solve the same problems. Only in the US military.
