Class 1 Vehicle Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Germany, Canada, UK5 September 2016
A typical work day starts at 8am and finishes at 5pm. Most of it is spent repairing, servicing or inspecting the military's many fleet of vehicles. I have gained a wealth of knowledge as well as some much needed qualifications which can be carried forward. Management is very prolific and work colleagues are essential. The hardest part of the job is definitely working in an exercise condition with inadequate facilities and harsh weather conditions. However, the hard times are normally overshadowed with some excellent adventure training and banter among co-workers.
Pros
Excellent benefits packages
Cons
Working in the cold
