Medical Instructor, Medical Lab Tech, Corpsman (Former Employee), San Diego, CaAugust 21, 2014
Pros: steady and intriguing work and lifestyle
Cons: sometimes very boring. but i solved this by changing my routine where possible.
I was a general Corpsman working in the SICU. Became an Advanced Medical Lab Tech responsible for a variety of sample collection, processing, and testing. Was Field Medical Corpsman and Instructor while with the Marines. I learned management of all kinds then evolving into leadership where I was learning how to inspire. Head of Field Medicine Education – more... Department with 10 instructors under me. The hardest part was unpredictability but, yet, unpredictability could be fun and motivating. I worked with many good people and managers, I just had to be adaptable. I liked communicating with others and knowing what they thought and felt. I learned confidence and matured. I honed my listening skills and learned how to coordinate with personnel while many operations were going on simultaneously. – less

I would not have changed anything...but, that includes the getting out part as well. Great experience, and tremendous learning opportunities. Everyone should serve in the Armed Forces for at least a short amount of time.

Hospital Corpsman (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 21, 2014
Pros: great benefits, free travel, great family benefits, good housing
Cons: lengthy time, basic training
When you're military - any branch - you are military 24/7. So, sometimes it affects your home life when you get called in to work from 2pm to 8am. Or if you have to be out for 6 months to 4 years. Regardless of the wonky time schedule, you will meet some of the strongest, most reliable friends you will ever know. You will obtain skill sets you didn't – more... think you were capable of. You will have the ability to see places other people will only ever read about in magazines or see on TV. It requires someone with a strong backbone and thick skin at times, but it is definitely something you will always carry with you. – less

Working in the Armed Forces was on of the best things that ever happened to me. It changed my life for the better and made me who I am today. A person who can be counted on, a individual who can take charge and man that has earned the core values of the Navy, Honor, Courage, and Commitment.

Ship Serviceman (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: seeing the world for free
Cons: not getting to be at home as often
I was a Ship Store Operator, then became an Officers and Enlisted Barber and Radio Host on Sundays on board the USS America broadcasting to 5,500 men and accompanying ships. It was the single greatest learning experience of my life. My fellow Sailors were a great group of guys who had fun but took their jobs seriously. The group of Officers in my division – more... for the most part were above board, especially on the USS America. The hardest part of the job was the long deployments of an Aircraft Carrier-8 to 12 months away from the US. – less

Work Center Supervisor (Former Employee), Lemoore, CAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: months at a time away from family.
The Navy was everything I have always heard about it to be. The ability to travel the world and get a education practically for free. I learned many life lessons that cannot be taught in a classroom. Management was hit and miss. Sometimes you had great leadership and other times not so much. You were never working for one particular person for too long – more... of a time. Hardest part of the job was being away from family. The most enjoyable part was the life long friendships you establish and traveling the world. – less

Plane Captain (Current Employee), Lemoore,CAAugust 19, 2014
A typical work day is 12 hours long. I learned discipline, integrity, and commitment. My co-workers made it all worth it and you build a bond that is strong. The hardest part of the job are the hours they really take a toll on you. The most enjoyable part of my job is the friendships it creates and the opportunities.

Engineman 1st Class (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 19, 2014
Pros: free meals
Cons: long underway periods
The U.S Navy is a proud and strong military branch, that based around it's Honor, Courage, and Commitment. A typical work day could be anywhere from general preventive maintenance, to manning General Quarters stations in anticipation from enemy threats. What I learned while serving in the U.S Navy, is making sure to pay attention to detail. The smallest – more... things can lead to the biggest disasters or prevent them. Living up to ones potential, being able to lead, mentor, and sett good examples for junior personnel. Being timely, efficient, and proactive while working on a job, piece of equipment, and everyday general cleanliness. Building commodore, with your shipmates. The hardest part of the job, would have to be being away from family. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you are doing this to protect your family, friends, and country. – less
