Infantryman/driver for armored vehicle, LAV111 (Current Employee) –  Petawawa, ON25 September 2013
a typical day at work would be early morning physical training with your platoon usually lasting about an hour, alternating different exercises on a daily basis, maintenance of weapons and military vehicle is followed after physical training. recital classes are required, usually following up on previous courses taken, new courses are also available to you. your constantly working with a platoon size group of 15 to 20 each having an opportunity to take charge, learning all there is to know about leadership. the most rewarding part of the job is putting together all the skills and knowledge about the job and executing it when a situation is presented.
Pros
good pay, with security, pleny of oppertunity for advancement
