Interesting Place to Work
Fun yet challenging working environment. Provides for adequate work and life balance. Currently working on a Government Contract so advancement is limited without changing companies. Management very nice and engaging.

Fulfilling job and work
Given that in most cases you get to choose the job that interests you the most and is supposedly the best suited for you, I was more than lucky enough to be put in a field where I find even the most challenging of days rewarding working as a calibration technician. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and am thankful that I got to experience working my first real role apart of society doing something that I have come to love.

Big Navy
Not Fun. They do not care about skill or talent--simply about making it look like there is work getting done. Not where you want to be. Trust me. Don't listen to a recruiter.

It’s Great
It’s a great work experience it teaches you discipline and great character. The Navy makes you very punctual and gives you a great work ethic at everything you do. I like being in the navy cause it makes you do everything to the best of your ability.

It's the Military
Don't join if you don't want to work long hours, lose sleep on watches, and deal with people you may not like on a daily basis while trapped in a floating tin can.
