    I worked at US Army full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Advancement, you could start at the bottom and work you way up to the middle management in less than 10 years if you applied yourself. If you had college it would speed up the advancement. The people, most of the people were good people coming from all walks of life and accomplishing a lot with so few. Every federal holiday was a 4 day weekend. How many jobs are out there for 17 year olds that are salary, offer full medical and dental, offer on the job training, and from the first year offer 30 days paid vacation.

    Cons

    Sometimes you would have overbearing leadership that really wasn't worthy of the position, in most cases it was the ones that advanced in promotions too quickly and were not ready for the new position or would feel that because their previous leadership taught them bad habits that the bad habits or mistreatment was a normal occurrence. The long hours sometimes. Its one job you cannot just quit or get fired unless you really really messed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For those of you that have advanced very quickly kudos for you but did you really know your new position? Listen to your subordinates, and treat everyone with the same dignity and respect you desire not deserve due to position.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at US Army in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    You apply online through a database that sorts through applicants for specific experience. I was then put throught a board of reviewers that grade you based on the actual position requirements in comparison to years of experience. Following I am interviewed by 3 individuals with a series of questions. Final interview was with the General Officer I would have to work for.

    Negotiation Details
    It was fairly easy. Because I was already in the system, there is a percentage increase within the alloted pay bracket that I was able to increase. No other options were available because of the limits of hiring actions for the government at the time.
