Corporal in the Canadian Armed Forces (Former Employee) – Gagetown, NB – 22 June 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the CAF. If i was single I would stay in for life. Lot of opportunities, experience gained. Now I have kids and want to be home with them. The military is not conducive with a stable home life.

AIR CADET SUMMER TRAINING CENTER STAFF (Former Employee) – Gimli, MB – 19 June 2017
I learned how to do inventory, work security, canteen sales, and much more. The management was fairly relaxed and you always knew what was going on around you. My job was to run and maintain the cadet canteen during the evenings and do security sweeps and bed checks at night. The hardest part was when the older course cadets were acting up and not following orders because they didn't respect you. Overall I loved the job the other staff was awesome and the off time was fun.
short hours, good pay, and awesome people.
no time to go home you are there for 7 weeks straight.

Private/ Officer Cadet (Former Employee) – Wainwright, AB/ Kingston, ON – 13 June 2017
I was only apart of training and my life was on course for ALOY and Bold Eagle. Bold Eagle was a great experience for training and personal growth. ALOY wasn't nearly as good, and has left me with a distaste for the forces.
Many things are paid for (Medical, glasses, some travel, ect.)

Working with a great crew has a lot of good points, All day of work we worked together and alone at the same time helped out when needed. The manager was a good guy to work with, He has understood how all have worked with him as he was our manger, but he was a team worker. I have had a great team to work with awesome surrounding. All and all it has a good point to feel the work place had a family like feeling.
