Jacksonville, NC

ProsLearned a great amount of skill including teamwork, attention to detail, work ethic, leadership, independence, and did I mention attention to detail? All of which transfer ESPECIALLY if you honorably discharge first term. You can take some of the things you learn here to great lengths, especially after using that GI Bill (which is awesome).

ConsLong shifts, strong mental (unreversable) stress, considerably less rights than a civilian counterpart, and very short, if any, lunch breaks.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour troops come first, ALWAYS.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
