"I have worked for the US Navy for the last 20 years. It was a great experience and I would not change what I did for the world. If you have any thought of serving your country, the Navy is great career to look into. It has an opportunity for just about anyone out there. If you like computers and messing with the latest and greatest weapon systems then a Fire Controlman is the way for you to go."

"I've worked for the US Navy and found it to be a highly demanding environment. I will forever miss the friendships and life experience that I gained there but I still feel the need to move on to improve myself and move up which can be seemingly impossible in a socialized military environment."

"I would not wish this job on my worst enemy let alone suggest that my friends join up."

What do you like about working at United States Navy?

"I used to enjoy the travel. When I was stationed in Pearl Harbor, I had no complaints about the location."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't do it. Go Air Force or Army if you simply MUST serve in the military. I highly suggest staying civilian and keeping the basic freedoms that you enjoy."

What don't you like about working at United States Navy?

"When I say I used to enjoy the travel, I mean that. But then one day I had my eyes opened to the fact that we can't even really enjoy the travel because the navy imposes too many restrictions on our lives when we're overseas... oh wait, even in the U.S. I never in my life had a curfew until I joined the navy. I hate being treated like what I imagine a kid would be treated like if his/her parents didn't trust them. There is no balance between my life and work because the navy will not allow me to have a life. I am single but I really have pity on those poor sailors who have families and are actually decent human beings who don't cheat on their wives and their families.Trying to use the education benefits that they use as selling points to recruit people requires jumping through so many hoops that it's not even worth it. I'm paying for my flight school myself. The courses that the navy does allow you to take are, for lack of a better word, bullsh*t. I'm currently on deployment and taking a history class that is a joke. I learned more in middle school. Sadly, it has to be a joke because the navy won't allow time for a real class. I laugh at anybody who gets a degree while on active duty in the navy because it's a joke. It's worthless and they didn't learn anything. They spent their money on a piece of paper. The navy preaches its core values of honor, courage, and commitment but the leaders we have in this organization don't even know what those words mean. I've been told by chief petty officers that I should have lied to another chief to keep him from finding something. How is that, in any way, honorable! Those core values are just words they throw around to try make junior sailors feel like they've let the command, the navy, and their country down. They have no meaning in the navy anymore. There is no honor in this job. I am no longer proud to serve in this disorganization.You know what I've been craving for a week now A root beer. I just want a root beer and I can't have one because I'm in the middle of the ocean."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Learn to organize and plan ahead. Stop being arrogant and treating your people like subhuman scum and maybe they'll have a little respect for you. Or go hang yourselves."
