Pros: Finding common ground with individuals, coming together as a whole to accomplish a mission, traveling, and the training.
Cons: Not a lot of room for advancement
A typical day starts off with PT followed by a muster. The next thing to happen is a list of meetings and any words passed down from higher chain of command. Once the appropriate people are aware of their meetings and times, we then go into training via computer or we train using the white board and a Certified Facilitator. During training, if needed, individuals also check on existing Order applications or deadlines on Certifications.
I have learned to work well with a team while also ensuring that I keep myself up to date on all Certifications, training, and travel information for training purposes. I have learned to use a number of different programs that are used to help the Navy run better as a whole.
Management is supervising us as individuals, grooming their younger sailors to become leaders but ensuring that it is done in a proper manner. They make sure that all paperwork is done correctly and finished in a timely manner.
My coworkers and I all get along very well. We see each other outside of work when time is available, we check each others paperwork for mistakes, and we make it easy for new individuals to approach us with any questions they may have.
Hardest part of the job is having to keep up with the numerous changes that the Military is making with each program. Having to keep up with changes that come so rapidly can prove to be a challenge but not one that has ever kept me from advancing.
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to work so fluidly with the group as a whole. Seeing how building yourself up to be a vital part of the mission and watching as it comes together is a probably my favorite part of it all, followed closely by the training and traveling.
