Infantry Soldier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 September 2017
I wouldn't say there was a typical day for me. It was a dynamic environment that was extremely challenging at times. Building relationships was an enjoyable part of this experience. I learned many useful skills throughout my experience.
Logistics Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto – 31 August 2017
I have enjoyed my time in the combat engineers. So many great people to work with! Since I am a reservist experiences may vary but I cant confidently say that the Canadian military is a great organization to work with.
Vehicle Technician, 1 Service Battalion (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 August 2017
Throughout the military trainings, there are few things across my mind. One is the management system is terrible. Due to the high job security, the higher positions in the chain of command are severely corrupted. They are NOT open minded when it comes to new ideas or new concepts. There are still a lot of bullies when it comes to females and other races. When it comes to relocation, it is hard to get the location that you want the most due to many many reasons: training locations, budget, vacancy, etc.
Great job security and great medical benefit
hard on your body and lots of not open minded people
Sergeant (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 22 August 2017
If you can handle the challenge of being away from home in a stress full work environment then give it a shot. The amount of different opportunities that are offered and the competitive salary involved make me wonder why more people do not enlist.
Infantryman (Former Employee) – Canada – 21 August 2017
You'll meet your best friends, and people you hate more than anyone else in the world. To every Good thing that happens here theres something just as bad. I'm not sure about other trades but being an infantryman really does require a good sense of humor, and the ability to see the silver lining on a day to day basis if you're gonna pull through.
Its usually not fun when you're doing the bad parts, but you feel happy reflecting that you've done such things.
Infantry Soldier (Current Employee) – Petawawa, ON – 19 August 2017
A fast paced environment with tons of training. You will learn to be a competent soldier that can move, shoot, and communicate as a base line, and learn how to perform in a small and large team. You learn how to operate many different weapons and learn many tactics on defence, offence, and many other types of operations.
Communicator Research Operator (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 11 August 2017
This career was by far the most interesting. It took my to many places and I saw many things. Overseas deployment was tough, but that's part of the job. The camaraderie made you feel like you were part of a great family.
Great place to get an education and learn some life skills, ie leadership. But if you are not good at taking orders or find that you have to listen to people who outrank you but don't know their jobs very well, this may not be the place for you.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 8 August 2017
DND is a great place to gain experience - especially as a student. They teach you workplace skills that are essential to any student looking to expand their knowledge outside of the academic environment.
