"Very professional atmosphere. Great hours."
"Retiring from 24 years of active duty service in October 2020"
"It could be difficult at times, but overall the people I worked with and the experiences were great."
"I worked for the US Army and US Navy for over 15 years. Limited budgets meant limited resources and long hours"
"If you want to travel the world, and get money for college, the Navy may be right for you. Free Medical, Dental, Travel, 30 days vacation/year. Room for growth. Check out https://www.navy.mil for more."
"I worked for the United States Navy from October 2011 - May 2019. Of course every place has ups and downs. I had a great experience in the Navy, and wouldn't give it up for anything. It gave me the opportunity to see dozens of places I most likely never would have, and learn so many different skills. But there are down sides, too, of course. Regardless of what your rate or MOS is, your pay is pretty much the same. For example: 1) If you are an E4 Yeoman (Office Administrator) you are paid the same as an E4 Aviation Machinist's Mate (Aircraft Powerplant Mechanic), where the mechanic will most likely work well over 8 hours per day, performing intense manual labor, and having the lives of aircraft pilots depending on their work. They say, "Choose your rate, choose your fate" and it is 100% true. Compensation is incredibly unbalanced for the potential work performed. 2) Certain places you go, you will experience favoritism to excessive degrees, which unfortunately can prevent you from excelling. I still did really well, stood out, and advanced quickly, but there were definitely times that opportunities were given to individuals who were obviously less qualified or prepared for them."
"I’ve worked for the US Navy since 1999 until 2019. During that time I have grown in into a highly capable leader and manager."
"I thoroughly enjoy working at NSWCCD. The work is intellectually stimulating and it is wonderful being able to integrate laboratory experiments to in-service support for the USN and USMC."
"I've been a member of the Unites States Navy for practically my entire adult life. Through military service, and in addition to the many practical traits that I have mastered, I've developed a strength in character that is second to none. The 'discipline' aspect gained through military service is one that any quality employer would jump at the chance for having!"
"At times being in the military in general can be rough. Once you hit your stride and start making friends that you will never lose it becomes one of the best experiences you will ever have."
"Great career for those seeking technical experience and world travel opportunities."
"Working for the Navy is a very difficult, but rewarding experience. The conditions may be harsh and the work tough, but it gives valuable skills for life."
"The Navy is the greatest organization I have ever worked for."
"I've worked for this recruiting district since 2012 and I have had nothing but good things to say about this current and all previous commands I have worked under. It has been a pleasure serving as this recruiting district's Nuclear Programs Coordinator."
"Politics, politics, politics."
