Fast paced and a different experience every day.
Third Class Petty Officer/Supervisor (Former Employee), Kāne‘ohe Bay, HIJuly 18, 2014
Pros: good pto, advancement is available
Cons: short breaks, long hours
A day in the life of an aviation mechanic varies day to day. A typical day would start of with accountability of tools and a pass-down of information to get everyone on the same page with work that needs to be done. Tasks are assigned and workers go out to do their jobs. Break times aren't scheduled, when the work is done, or a stopping point is reached – more... then we can relax for a a little while. Some days may last longer than others, but thats the price sailors pay for defending the freedom of America. – less

A typical day was working in the office keeping records straight, working on the boats with the engine men and craft masters, leading a group of people teaching them safety and work habits. My supervisor was great, he did what ever he could to make things run smooth. The same goes with my co-workers. Everyone worked as a single unit. The hardest part – more... of my job was doing duty every three days. Besides that, the job was very enjoyable. – less

Operation Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 18, 2014
A typical day at work for the U.S Navy started at 7:00 am until 5:00 pm. In the morning a meeting is normally held to put on the work schedule for that day. After the meeting, your time is spent collecting the tools you may need and putting out the information to your team members. After everything has been collecting and has a full understanding of – more... what needs to be done you start your day of work. If you are in a certain position, you may have meetings to attend throughout the day. – less

The US Navy is a great place for management experience.
Supply Officer (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: get to see the world!
Cons: long deployments away from family & friends.
In the US Navy you spend a lot of time away from your home & family-it's in the nature of the position. The people I worked with were amazing and you can never get the same level of camaraderie as you will working in a career like this. The hardest part is the time away from your family & life. The most enjoyable part is the amazing people you meet – more... and work with. – less
