It's a rough job, not for those who cant take direction but well worth it.

Electronics Technician (Current Employee)
Pearl Harbor, HI

I have been working at US Navy full-time for more than a year

ProsThe Benefits are great(healthcare, retirement options, steady income), lasting relationships, traveling to foreign countries.

ConsThe hours are long whenever there is work that needs to be done, underways may be exciting but its still slightly depressing to be away from home and loved ones for so long. You may not always agree with your chain of command but still have to meet there expectations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
