Good experience, managed poorly
Heating and Plumbing Engineer (Former Employee) – Tidworth – 18 June 2018
Within my six years I have travelled oversees to numerous countries, to work in challenging environments. Tasks ranging from the heating and plumbing im specialised in, to bridge building and demolitions work. The challenges set we’re often given last minute with a lot of pressure, so that made me flexible and ready at all times. The pros of the army are certainly the adventure training opportunities I had been able to do, such as skydiving, skiing, mountain climbing and water sports. The negatives being the poor management of the workforce, with almost everything always being a last minute job, the lack of materials or tools for a construction job, and the poor management of soldiers careers and personal lives. Overall, I’ve enjoyed my time in the army and I’ve grasped every opportunity with both hands. However, it’s time to move on as I want a career in a new environment, as I’m ready to build my life out of the military.
