Warrant Officer in Canada and worldwide

Lots to do and see
Look, It's the Military. Not for everyone, but a heck of a good time once you figure out how to play the game. Lots of time outdoors, travel and adventure.

Environnement de travail hypocrite
Une bonne journée de travail dépend de votre supérieur.

Government job
Rock solid security since you are employed by the government. No way of negotiating to work from home unless you meet a nice manager. Otherwise pay is pretty good for a government job. Pace is also very slow, poor support from management most of the times.

Not the best
Sit around, they give work away, manager is over ruled by upper management. Less and less O/T and as base wages are low compared to civilian world unless you have a pension on top you can’t pay bills.

Great place to get a trade
Great place to get started in trades or as a pilot or if you just want to coast. I would reccomend getting what you want then getting out and using your skills civi side. But there is alot to be said for job security and benefits it's a good option but not for everyone
