COLONEL / BATTALION COMMANDER (Current Employee), South El Monte, CAJune 19, 2015
The culture of this company was hostile. Certain individuals were allowed to run rampant and actually sabotage projects. The management was for the most part less than support of people making progress and more than supportive of managers and leaders making false allegations.

Platoon Leader (Current Employee), Nashville, TnJune 17, 2015
Pros: Making a difference in an indivuduals life
Cons: Long days
Being in the military and leading Soldiers is one of the best choices I have made. Once a month and 2 weekends a year I am able to work one on one with my Soldiers to train, lead, and motivate them to be their best. The normal duties are supervising training and planning follow on training for the up coming battle assemblies where we meet.

Biomedical Equipment Technician
Biomedical Equipment Technician (Current Employee), Iowa and AfghanistanJune 13, 2015
Pros: Living the Army values
A typical day as a Biomed would consist of working on multiple pieces of equipment that need serviced. I have worked on everything from an ultrasound unit to an X-Ray room. The services that a Biomed provides is preventive maintenance, calibration and repair; the system that the army uses to keep track of all of the scheduled and unscheduled services is DMLSS.

36k10 Tactical wire operator specialist (Former Employee), Nashville, TennesseeJune 12, 2015
Pros: Life Skills
Cons: Non
The US Army is a great place to start. They give me my first skill sets. A typical day as a tactical wire operator specialist involves setting up combat phone lines and switchboards. Management is the chain of command, In 1981 it was the honorable Ronald Reagan.
My Co-Workers were all part of the 401st prisoner of war Camp Base in Nashville, Tennessee. The hardest part of the job was to do night repairs of damaged phone lines.
The most enjoyable part of the job, was being part of the US Army.

Dental Specialist (Current Employee), Joint Base Lewis McChord, WAMay 12, 2015
Pros: great pay, expierence, good training
Cons: always lose papers, short notice for deployments/mobilazations
Life in the reserves is great, but you rarely get to practice your mos and there is a lot of administrative work going on while you are at drill. When you first sign up you don't take in consideration that the contract is actually real and at first eight years do not seem like anything at all, but after awhile it can become a lot to think about. A lot can happen in eight years, but at the end of the day it is a rewarding feeling to be part of the Reserves.
