Army

I can not answer too many questions about the Army because it was a long time ago. What I do recall is working hard and exercising five days a week, and was in the best shape during that time.

Fast paced and high stress

Worked weekdays and occasional weekends from about 5AM-5PM. Great job if you like to travel. Work can be challenging and you need to be able to adapt to whatever the situation requires.

Learning Experience

I have learned a lot about responsibility, and what it truly means to take pride in your work, and I have gained a lot of discipline in myself. I love what the army has done for me and all I have learned. I will retain what meant most to me and apply it to my life. It was a great stepping stone and it helped me find my drive to what I really want in life.

War

Many people get out because the Army deploys you over and over again. It's frustrating. I'm still friends with some of my Army friends and met my husband there. I don't recommend the military at all, especially during wartime. The pay isn't worth it at all.

Honored to Serve

The most enjoyable and the hardest part of the job was the nature of the job itself, being a soldier. A typical day at work consisted of accountability and wellness of soldiers, physical training exercise, drills, maintaining unit vehicles. I learned lifelong lessons such as teamwork and professionalism, loyalty, work ethics and to put others before myself. It was truly an honor to serve my country.

Fun, and stressful organization to work for. I loved it.

Everyone should join military, and experience it for themselves. You'll meet great people, and develop a bond that you can only develop in the military.

Culture shock and a wake up call

It is very hard to work with an individual that you know nothing about them or their culture. But you are thrown together and are told to make it work. Best part is getting to visit/travel on my time off. The worst part is working with newly - power hungry Non Commission Officers (NCO).

Great

I enjoyed my 12 years in the army. It is indeed a culture shock at first, but once you are accustomed to the life it is rewarding. You will be given a lot of responsibility at times and then treated like a child other times. It requires a high level of dedication and commitment to make it in the military.

The U.S. Army has a lot of Pros and Cons

The best part of the Army for me was getting to travel around, free training, and the job security/advancement. I'm a wheeled vehicle mechanic, so a typical day for me is 0630 physical training until 730. Then i go to the motor pool at 0900 until 1130. 1130 to 1300 lunch. 1300 to 1700 back at the motor pool doing repairs and services. I learned an incredible amount about mechanics over my 3 years as a mechanic, especially while deployed. My leadership and coworkers were amazing as far as the maintenance section. The hardest part of the job is anything not MOS related such as, formations, CQ shifts and staff duty.Also some people don't like deployments at all. The best part of my job is when I'm doing big repair jobs like replacing engines/transmissions. Overall create experience but, i'm glad i'm separating because I'm ready for new opportunity but, I would defiantly do it again if I had to choice.

Structured Environment

The training is consistent and never ending in regards to the position in which you work. There is everyday structure which allows for operations to run according to plan. The processes of the chain of command varies depending on the company and unit. The hardest part of the job is being away from family. The structure is the most enjoyable part of the job.

I grew up in the Army

The Army made me the man I am today. With leaders that take care of you like family, you really feel at home. The Army taught me skills that I still use today.
