Provides a very good pay for a individual that is right out of high school without and education or further career goals, but also capitalizes on the fact that people who have no motivation cannot be fired. This creates a endless loop of junior people constantly having bad leadership without the ability to change anything. Understanding that it is the military and it was a "volunteer" choice but that does not excuse the fact of not trying to make life better and a having to trick junior people to join without fully explaining their next XX amount of years.
Nothing like starting your career in the US military. Build a foundation for your future and set yourself up for success. Build discipline and confident through the worlds best military
free lunches, Bah, allowances, good leaders
long hours, ok pay, tough assignments
As a Quality Assurance Specialist dealing with prototype aircraft you get to see some exciting things. A typical day might see you inspecting several different types of aircraft or components. Generally we are understaffed so it can be hectic traveling from place to place for installations. The pay is great and the government benefits packages are excellent. Management is very political and generally do not seem to care about their people. Growth is limited.

You learn a lot about life with this organization. Definitely learn how to work under pressure and learn to work under a toxic environment. There is a lot of favoritism and unfair advancement. This leads to not so great people leading and not so great of managing work flow. Constant threats that they will make sure you never get a job on the outside if things don't go their way with a bad discharge. The only thing that I missed was the travel and seeing new places.

Enjoyed my time in the Navy. Gave me a lot of useful skills and experience to help in the civilian world but it can be rough while you're in. Very dependent on your duty station and chain of command, but I felt quite fortunate to have had some awesome ones.
Hurry up and wait. They dont care about your mental health. They try to get you in trouble every day. Leadership is horrible. Hard to get leave approved. Hazing still exists. Think highschool drama but worse it comes from all sides of the chain of command.
Great benefits. If only the same could be said about the leadership and the priorities they put over your mental health and family. Besides that the pay is ok if you don’t think about how many hours you work.
Free healthcare and college
Bad leadership, long hours, short notice changes in schedule, work life over powers personal and family life, fraternization, weird racist stuff going on now, favoritism, advancement is based on what’s on paper instead of actual work ethic
Compensation for certain rates can be really low. The opposite applies to rates where the work is stupid simple but get paid really high for it. Overall I still believe everyone should experience at least one term in the military.
Steady job with plenty of advancement opportunities if you apply yourself.
Depending on your rate, work/life balance could be terrible.
Great benefits. Get to travel the world and meet awesome people. Downside is alot of toxicity in leadership positions.
Everyone has a different experience. It all comes down to which command you go to. Some are great, some are ok, and there are some that are just awful.
Great benefits, seeing the world
Toxicity in leadership positions
I loved the friends I made and the people I met and the places I went. But the leadership was simply some of the worst on this planet. I’m very gratefully out of the navy now and I miss my friends a lot but you couldn’t pay me again to work for those people. Recruiters are LIARS, do your research.
Paid time off. Great friends. Housing.
