Military Police Officer SUBASE NLON (Former Employee), Groton, CTMay 21, 2015
- I worked 12 hour shifts, doing water and land law enforcement patrols of the installation.
- Learned many traits, leadership, supervising, gun safety, attention to detail, mentoring, and the list goes on.
-The hardest part of the job might have been the long hours away from my family and the lack of man power to pick up the extra slack when needed.
- Meeting new people and interacting with men and women from different parts of the world was a plus side of the job. Also learning to become a better person from the things that were taught to me.

Management/Leadership (Current Employee), Fort Dix, NJMay 20, 2015
Pros: affordable health care
Cons: relocating every 3 years
A typical day at work involves providing first class customer service to our internal and external customers. Providing training for the junior personnel and developing them for future leadership roles. The hardest part of my job is assigning every teammember in the right job where they are challenged but able to be successful and at the same fulfil the organization's mission. The most enjoyable part of my job is to see Sailors enjoy what they do and getting promoted.
