as soon as i get to the office before 0800hrs, open the project priority list that is the project list i had to lead and manage until the end of fiscal year (30 Sep). from that time, battle was start to finish project and update project information for leadership and other office. all the time, the work was busy but as much as i busy i had to be stabilized and to be calm to find ways to solve problems. Also, managing data is critically important to maintain project information and use the information immediately whenever we needed. Office environment was very liberal but work responsibility level and self control was highly required. The hardest part of job was communication with different culture people but i overcome the difficulties through often short tea time with difficult counterparts.
Wake up to work out then have about an hour and a half until i get to work. first thing is checking my emails and checking up on everyone else. Usually quiet and slow in the morning but it picks up later in the day.
working in the united states military was a good place to get job experience, life training, social skill, and a variety of other soft skill to include: customer service, leadership skills, and adaptability.
If you are not doing so good at home or you need a fresh start go and join the army it will help you out in the long run. If you pick a good job it will give you a lot of skills to use in the civilian side
Not only will the job you choose have a heavy impact on your quality of life but the duty station and organization your are in will have just the same amount of impact. Being that you PCS on average every 3 years, you will win some and lose some when it comes to how your quality of life will be.
I joined the Army to travel and they made that happen. I was sent to Korea and I completely enjoyed my time there. The people, culture, food and country are truly one of a kind and something that must be experienced.
BAD WORK SCHEDULE HORRIble leaders dont care about your time. they don't care about you highering education, it's always " the mission comes first" so..... you rather me submit my quiz or change out a tire ?
If you're looking to see the world for free join. Be prepared to work with people from all over the country/world. Be open to new ideas and ways of thinking. The Army does things differently so be flexible.
I cannot say enough about the Army in both good and bad ways. At the end of the day the bad outweighed the good.
If you want to be challenged then join tomorrow, but do not expect any type of stability other then a paycheck. I have moved locations 7 times in 6 years of service and I got tired of not have some kind of work/life balance. I didn't mind working the 80 hours a week, just the fact that that is all I had at the end of the day, nothing much to a personnel life.
Because my wife wanted a career and the Army doesn't have bases near where she could find work, I have spend 3 years apart from her out of the 6.
healthcare (if you can be seen)
work/rest balance, managing my spouse's and mine career with army demands
