It is the military so the job is the job, overall the military is not a bad place to be in but for some, myself included, it is not the end all be all.

There was always a purpose for what we were doing which made the job easier. Can be stressful at times but with the right leadership it isn’t to bad. Great co workers and really feels like your part of a family. Leadership usually has the best interest in mind and will usually always help you if you need it. Great benefits that can really set you up for an easier life when you get out.

A great experience with multiple oppurtunites to learn. Management is average: the #1 priority is making executives happy. The workplace culture is rigid and resistant to change.

Overall my experience with the army has had it’s ups and downs. The environment can be very stressful at times but that is what’s expected when you are in the service. I have met wonderful people so far and have had good leadership throughout my journey.

it's the military, you will either hate it or love it. we are a country that does not require a 2 year service contract like some others. Even though we should. it helps give you a sense of purpose for HS students that have NO clue on what the want to do

Joining the military was the best experience in my life. I had the opportunity to meet great people and to do things I never thought I would be able to do. I would tell any young person who is looking for direction in their lives to join the military.

While completing my nursing training in the Army my leadership was encouraging and they cared about my progress. My nursing mentors answered every question I had and gave me helpful tips on studying for both my nursing exams and my NCLEX.

In my current duty station I am able to start on some classes so I can get a good job out side of the Army when my contract is up. I have some leaders that are able to help me and give me time to work on that and even give me time off to take care of myself to get the things I need to get done and I am grateful for them.
Pros
Alot of free time, leaders that help me and able to get free college
Cons
work is sometimes boring

Radiology job was great, the soldier aspect makes everything else more complicated but aside from that it was great. Enjoyable staff and fellow team members. Can't say the same for the leadership and management.

The various people and skills that come together to complete the project built a great working environment. The ability to learn from various individuals and have input during meetings regardless of status showcased the extraordinary management that most possessed. The hardest part was being away from family for long periods of time. Leading, teaching and mentoring those junior to me and assisting them in their growth was a great bonus for me.

With the all inclusive pay and benefits incentive, the major shock will be the culture. Keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut. Learn what you can from everyone you meet and you will succeed in all areas.

If you want to be treated like a child by grown men your age (and possibly younger), if you enjoy being demoralized on a daily basis, if you enjoy stacks upon stacks of unnecessary paperwork that always seems to come down at the last minute, and power point briefs that have nothing to do with your job, JOIN THE ARMY!
