I am forever changed
Master-At-Arms (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FloridaAugust 19, 2014
I learned quite a lot serving in the United States Navy. The Core values of the Navy are Honor, Courage, and Commitment. Honor is always doing my job to the best of my ability. Courage is to do the right thing, even when it may not be the easiest thing. Commitment is not giving up, even when it seems like there is every reason too. I will carry these – more... core values with me, not only in my job, but in my personal life as well. – less

The Navy gave me direction in life
Interior Communications Technician (Former Employee), The worldAugust 19, 2014
Pros: traveling and learning at the same time
Cons: no life of my own
It was a never ending day of electronic repair, securing ship board qualifications, deflecting negativity.
I learned a lot about electronics, life and diversity in this world. It was invaluable.
Management was very supportive of me because I worked very hard and applied everything everything I learned.
This life was exemplory in teamwork.
The hardest – more... part was being away from family and everything that felt familiar.
The most enjoyable was going to new places and meeting new people and at teh same time developing myself as a human being. – less

Aircraft Maintenance Control Chief (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAAugust 19, 2014
Pros: overall benefits
Cons: dangerous, away from family a lot
Serving in the military is the most challenging experience I have ever attempted and the most fulfilling. I joined the United States Military to find out what kind of person I am, to take an adventure, and help me succeed in life. I found all that and more. It is not an easy life and even harder for ones family, but I am thankful for the experience.

Builder 3rd Class (Former Employee), Naval Air Station Jacksonville Fl.August 18, 2014
Pros: benefits and culture
Cons: advancement.
A typical day would be to wake up bright and early. Make sure that my uniform and appearance is squared away. I was responsible for maintenance on base facilities, as well as compound projects. Accountability was a big focus. I've leaned to appreciate the small things in life and how fortunate I am. I've learned to pay more attention to detail, being – more... a leader. Showing up to work 15 minutes prior for work. Management changed often but usually were there to help me succeed. Co-workers were fun to work with. A very diverse environment.
The hardest part of my job was going on deployments and leaving family behind. As well as going to the field for training. The most enjoyable part was the traveling and the brotherhood. – less

Machinist Mate Third Class (Current Employee), Norfolk Va.August 18, 2014
Pros: job security, all benefits for my family and myself.
Cons: being away from family, duty days and deployment.
A typical day consists of beginning the weeks maintenance on hydraulic, compressed air, and refrigeration systems, and troubleshooting any equipment that wasn't in proper working condition.

Management worked at my level and helped me with anything I ask assistance on

Co-workers are motivated and always in high spirits especially when it means getting – more... a job done.

The hardest part of the job is not getting to spend time with my family as much as I would like to.

The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to see the world and learn about new cultures while at the same time learning a career building job. – less

Training Coordinator (Former Employee), Lemoore, CAAugust 18, 2014
Occasionally had some rough moments. Deployments kept me away from my family and friends. I became proficient in Microsoft Office. We managed training records for 1000 sailors. Managers rotated on a yearly basis. The best part of the job was the job security. The worst part was being away during deployments and the occasional 70 hour weeks.

Second Class Petty Officer (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: pay, free basic needs - shelter, food, healthcare, great co-workers, 30 days vacation, free education
Cons: the stress of the jobs, dealing with rank structure, politics.
A typical day at worked started with formation at 0545 and receiving the plan of the day. I worked on the Gas Free Engineering Systems and had an extra duty of maintaining the qualifications of the ship in Damage Control aspects.

I learned a great deal about military politics, personal growth, and management skills.

Management here is always in training – more... and learning new skills. Some people have great interpersonal skills, while others are new and are still learning.

With a team of over 80 people, some of the co-workers were great to be around, while others just seemed to be there or didn't care.

The hardest part of the job is learning the politics of the military and finding your niche to fit in.

The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting great people and having lasting friendships later on. – less

LCS SUW DET 3 Senior Enlisted Leader (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits and job security
Cons: separation of family and some restrictions on advancing your career.
The US Navy and Military is structured and predictable - which I like and look forward to but won't mind having a little more freedom of my own schedule. Unique experiences, constantly working with new people and on different jobs all over the world with cutting edge equipment. I have experienced many different leadership / management styles, been trained – more... on a number of schools, both military and civilian. Hardest part of this job is the separation of family, but at the same time the best part of this job is the travel. – less
