Soldier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 December 2017
Military service starts off with basic training. It is not easy, it is meant to challenge an individual. Recruits are challenged physically, mentally and emotionally. Once the training is finished, it gets way easier and a lot more enjoyable serving the Canadian Forces.
Psyops Analyst (Former Employee) – Kingston On – 15 December 2017
Every day it was something different, and if it taught me one thing it was never to be surprised at what you were going to be doing. "I can't" was not allowed to be in my vocabulary. From a personal point of pride and what my bosses expected of me. Loyalty was expected and was whole heartedly given. I was very lucky to have very good officers, and was given every chance by them to develop myself into what I believe was a first rate Senior NCO. Nothing was hard in the army; it was challenging. Making decisions when sleep deprived or under extreme pressure was challenging, but you lived or died (figuratively and literally) based on those decisions. The most enjoyable part of my career were the thousands of interactions I had with people. Whether I commanded them, served them, or interacted with them (civilians) I looked forward to every chance I could to form a relationship with them.

Infantryman (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 28 November 2017
I only made it to basic before realizing i came in half assed and left, but i do plan on returning in the future. Wait until older and more mature before going into this job, would not suggest going in at 18.
My life with the military was a great life experience . i had the opportunity to travel around the world and experience cultures i would normally not have the opportunity to do any where else. I was always given challenges through out my career to make me a better soldier / sailor .i had the opportunity to learn so much during my service time.
