U.S. Navy Reviews
My life as a navy mechanic.
Aviation Mechanic in Norfolk:
Pros: The work I do, the satisfaction that I completed everything I needed to.
Very challenging but the outcome is fruitful.
Navy Petty Officer 1st Class, Surface Vessels in Chesapeake:
Pros: Always learning and always leading.
Cons: At times it can be stressful molding the future generation but the hard work pays off when Sailors are all on the same page.
Pros: The experience gained and training received.
Cons: Working for uncertified or unqualified personnel.
Stress overshadows Benefits.
Cons: The inherent stress and constant demands with low pay.
Low Pay - But Steady Work.
Pros: Working for the DoD, or any federal agency, offers very good job security. When times are bad economically, federal workers are thankful for their salaries.
Cons: The DoD is saddled with a number of problems, ranging from congressionally mandated bureaucratic burdens, to outdated equipment, to low pay (when compared to private sector).
I love it.
Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class, Surface Vessels:
Pros: I get a chance to travel the world as well as help people.
Cons: There are a lot of politics and favoritism.
Working for the NAVY.
Air Traffic Controller in Virginia Beach:
22 Years enlisted, and now a GS. Working Air Traffic Control for the Navy provides a more well rounded work experience than any other branch of service. Then Navy recently implemented Special Salary Rate for GS Air Traffic Controllers.
