Excellent leadership building and work environment
Specialist- 91 B Wheel Mechanic (Current Employee), Highland Park, ILAugust 13, 2015
Pros: Learning life skills such as leadership and team work
Cons: Random time of reporting for duty
We would normally come in and starting knocking out our to do list after formation. We made sure all the vehicles were up to standards by doing our usual maintenance work on them weather it was an oil change or dropping a transmission. My co workers are very professional at what they do but also very laid back so it made for a good work environment. It gets challenging when we have to preform our usual responsibilities against very extreme weather conditions but no matter what i always found myself learning something new from it.

Recruitment
Retention Advisor (Former Employee), Fort Hamilton, NYAugust 5, 2015
It was great working with the up and coming soldiers and seeing the morale of young kids and watching them grow into adults. However the military is not for everyone and it was a little difficult to work with soldiers that were having a hard time adjusting to the military lifestyle having just leaving home for the first time.

Military Experience
Food Services Manager (Former Employee), Fort Snelling, MNAugust 2, 2015
Pros: Maintain food services programs using cleaning, prep, and serving protocols.
Cons: Short breaks and early rise
A typical drill weekend consists of managing Food Services Program under the direction of Military Guidelines. Employees were all engaged in the prep and serving of food to various counts of soldiers. The hardest part of the job is the variations in soldier counts to determine the right amount of food needed to serve. The most enjoyable portions of the job is the one-on-one interactions with soldiers and commanders to ensure food is within federal guidelines and to serve various requests.
