Great foundation for ANYONE
Aviation Apprentice (Former Employee), Fairfield, CAApril 10, 2014
Pros: wages, people, foundation, opportunities
Cons: unknown destinations, leaders are inconsistent
I do not recommend the apprentice program. It's a way to get people in the door when all the good jobs are already full.
This is why they PAY YOU to be an apprentice. I wasn't smart enough to see this when I signed up.

I gained an immense amount of professionalism, attention to detail, and work ethic in the Navy.

You will never make better friends – more... in your life than when you travel far from home for the first time to a scary unknown place together. You really bond with people.

It's a great foundation for anyone right out of high school. I personally am glad I didnt go to college right out of high school. You can also get college paid for when you get out. – less

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
