Military Standards and a way of Life!
US Army (Former Employee) – Ft. Dix, NJ – May 22, 2019
A typical day starts very early on or about 5:30am and ending on or about 6pm. Sometime depending on our commanders intent, hours will be extended to achieve task at hand & requirements.
What I have learned in the Army is when you start a job, you do it proficiently till it is completed, there is no half jobs allowed.
Our command structure is very strict but very flexible to an understanding with advance notice of a particular problem, all problems must be addressed accordingly to achieve best results & completion of any job or task.
The work place culture was always great when you know the fellow soldier is very well skilled and proficient in his work yet the hardest part is when there aren't enough soldiers due to the amount of jobs needed to be completed and are spread thin to meet dead line. It's a norm but always find a way because of great leadership whom take the job into their own hands and guide soldiers effectively.
The most enjoyable part is knowing you are well taken cared for and most of all, all soldiers are great brothers & sisters whom rely on one another to get anything done at all cost. TEAM work, never alone and nothing less.
All bennefits and time off within reason and Flexible. Meet great people, work in differnet areas of the world, see thing you'd thought you never see and experience worldly conflicts.
just the adjustment to the long hours but becomes a norm once you get a hang of it.
