Private Soldier (Former Employee) – Moss Park Armoury, Toronto, ON – 29 December 2012
A typical day at work consisted of performing firearm and marching drills. On different days we also had lectures. Although my commanding officers were very strict, there was always a purpose for every action, and the learning techniques used in the forces were very effective. The hardest part of the job was distance i had to travel. Even though the job was very physically demanding, i had learned a lot along the away.
the learninng experience was very ruch and valuable
Infantryman (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 30 January 2013
I was in the infantry, so there was no typical day, everyday was a different thing. I really don't have enough room to write what I learned over 20 years, numerous courses and tours of duty. I learned discipline, responsibility, dedication, accountability, honour, committment, respect and loyalty. My co-workers were harding and all of the above.The hardest part of my job was leaving the forces and the most enjoyable part of my job was my co-workers and the sense of accomplishment.

Great career for camaraderie. I learned a multitude of skills and leadership techniques. If you worked hard and learned quickly, promotions and further learning opportunity came easily. I did things that I will never experience anywhere else.
Corporal - Infantryman, Section Second in Command (Former Employee) – Edmonton. World wide – 28 May 2013
As an Infantry Section Second In Command I was in charge of over seeing 8 personnel. Ensuring the safety of my subordinates and myself while conducting counter-insurgency operations in a hostile environment. I am able to adapt and overcome any task that I am given to the utmost standard while having minimal supervision.
During our daily routine, our first priority in the morning was physical fitness. Work consisted of morning briefings on the days, weeks and months activities. Training continued through the day on maintaining our readiness and personal improvement. Daily reports where needed and personnel information was needed to update files and reports for individuals on a daily basis.
Personal relationships that where brought upon during the daily work with each other.
Confidence and miltary traits taught to me through the years

Infantryman (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 1 October 2013
Everyday we get to work, we go out for a jog of about 3 miles, after that we carry on for the day. We practice our skills with weapons, drive armored vehicules and much more. We are always working by two, some communication is important. Hardest part of the job is when we go out on exercises or on a deployement. Enjoyable part, we do things that normal people won't ever do.
