    Former Employee - E-6 US Navy in Yorktown, VA

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

    Pros

    You will never gain more experience and life change in any other job. Visit countless locations around the world and get paid to do it. Good luck trying to spend less than $2,000 trying to visit a foreign country on your own dime (Mexico & Canada excluded).

    Education: Get 100% TA for 16 credits per year. When you separate, all college tuition is free, get $1000 per year for books, and have rent or mortgage paid for (just for being a student). Its like a full-ride scholarship. You can also let you family use it.

    Medical: All of you medical care and treatment is free for you and your dependents.

    Life Insurance: 400K for you, and 100K for each family member for just a few bucks per month.

    The Pros go on and on, but I just wanted to highlight a few.

    Cons

    Shared living spaces on the ship. Several months away from your loved ones. However, I was fortunate to have only 6-7 month deployments and not the 1-2 year deployments like the Army and Air Force. A lot of respect for our Soldiers and Airmen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful to not make it too much like a civilian corporation. Also, please tell the media to stop portraying our income levels as minimum wage or less. They are using data from the E-1 pay-grade and not taking other pays into account
