Cultural Advisor (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – July 19, 2018
This company was a great company to work, in terms of salary. But recently they have changed their policies and reduced the salaries to minimum, compared to what will go on you in the field. Not all their field managers take care about you. You have to rely on your POC more. On top of that they might change your salary at anytime they wanted. They will not wait to end of contract.
Automated logistical Specialist (Current Employee) – Joint Base Lewis McChord, WA – December 15, 2018
A typical day at work is always fast-paced, there's always something that needs to be done. I learned so much coming from this career like the understanding of the supply chain. My management was good and bad at sometimes but it does change frequently. Workplace culture is one of a kind. Everyone becomes close like a second family. Hardest part of the job is having friends leave after their contract ends or going to some place new. Most enjoyable part is learning new things about different people.
Office Manager (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 15, 2018
ad a great experience was one of the best decisions I ever made. The travel was awesome and the people friendly and willing to help. I got the great opportunity to not only join but to also help recruit others it was absolutely wonderful.
The military services is still a good place to retire from.Gave me an opportunity when I finished high school. I am proud to say that I took the opportunity, didn't look back, and 34 years later, I retired.
Pay and benefits
Depending on the specialty, promotions tend to stagnate at a certain point
U.S. Soldier (Former Employee) – Fort Lewis, WA – December 15, 2018
Military service is a lot like any other job in that there are good days and bad days. I would not trade the experience for anything though. My primary job was that of an unmanned aerial systems technician, but military service introduces service members to the true idea of service!!
Diverse working environments.
There is the right way, the wrong way, and the Army way.
Lots of time within the workplace and not enough time for family. You are either in the field or babysitting grown men that should be adults. Babysitting adults should not be a job. You should be able to do your job and leave.

Contractor Specialist (Former Employee) – North Carolina – December 14, 2018
My experience was good and like any other job had its bad, but overall the Army taught me a lot of skills. I would recommend anybody joining the army and learning how to work with others, leadership skills, and able to cross train.
meeting all sorts of peoples from different backgrounds
you can work bad details sometime. example picking up trash in the housing area
Signal Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Drum, NY – December 14, 2018
Join the Air Force. You will either have horrible immediate leadership or horrible higher leadership. You will barely get recognition for the hard work you put into the job and if you're not bending over backwards all the time you will not get noticed as a good soldier. Horrible family work balance.
Infantryman (Former Employee) – Schofield Barracks, HI – December 14, 2018
A lot of opportunities and advancements within a wide spectrum of job titles. Your career is up to you, minus the occasional toxic supervisor. Leaders dictate pace and training upon location and global issues going on in the world. Right place, right time, right uniform!
Engineer Platoon Observer/Coach/Trainer (Former Employee) – Fort Polk, LA – December 14, 2018
The overall opportunities offered by our military for personal and professional growth and development, alongside all the benefits make this service to our country worthwhile for all men and woman in the USA.
Productive, challenging, rewarding and fun place to work.
IT Technician / Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – December 14, 2018
Productive, challenging and fun place to work. Many opportunities to travel, I have seen many places I would not have otherwise seen had I not joined the Army. Career advancement path is given to the lowest to the highest enlisted soldier and is strongly encouraged to follow for career success.
Productive, challenging, rewarding, lots of travel.
