I have been working at US Army full-time
Work with people under a common goal and vision.
Inconsistent work hours and moving every 2-4 years.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at US Army (Fort Drum, NY (US)) in January 2012.
Basic training. Listen to your drill sergeants and worship them. You will do you share of push ups, sit ups, and remedial training. Shave your face, females included.
