    Joining the Army was the single best decision I made as a young man.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits. Great opportunities to travel and work in overseas locations. You have the chance to see the world and gain a holistic view of life and humans. The camaraderie is second to none. You will cross paths with some of the most talented, unique, and reliable professionals. Great opportunities to advance up the ranks-your career is what you make of it. As with any goal worth achieving in life, the Army will challenge you in ways that you could never imagine. Nature punishes the specialist. The Army trains individuals to become independent, pliable leaders who implement change, stay focused under duress, and lead others to the high ground in combat, and more importantly, in life.

    Cons

    The Army is tough. Daily operational tempos vary depending on the rotational cycle of your unit. Deployments cause the most stress; saying goodbye to your loved ones is the hardest thing to do. You may have to work late nights and work weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the amazing work! Had it not been for the countless Soldiers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and Officers who supported me along the way, I'd have accomplished very little.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at US Army.

    Interview Details

    Complete the ASVAB, then speak to a recruiter but be knowledgeable about the opportunities available. Walk in the door armed with that knowledge and have an idea of what you want to do in the military. Don't expect that the recruiter is going to be completely open and present you with the "perfect job." There may be jobs that offer bonuses but they may not necessarily be the right fit for you. Don't accept it just because it offers a bonus, look for what will be interesting and satisfying. If you have education bring your transcripts and ensure that you get credit for that education. More education means higher rank and pay! If you have JROTC make sure to mention that as well for the same reason. There are hundreds of options available and you don't have to be a "hard charger" to necessarily fit into the Army. Also, start working on your pushups, situps, and 2 mile run time early, it will pay off for you in Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training!
