Corporal (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 April 2018
A very unique workplace that both allows one to serve their country and learn highly relevant and practical skills that can be applied to the civilian sector. Not only does one learn personal skills that many employers desire, but also leadership skills that can be an excellent asset for any civilian employer.
Steward (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 14 April 2018
I think everyone should join for a minimum of three years because after serving in the Armed Forces you learn a lot. Now that I am in the public workplace people that are young don't know the meaning of work

This is a work place where you can do nothing but what is assigned to you as an employee. you are not allowed to go above and beyond, you are not allowed to be proactive and above all you're not allowed to question.

Being in a brother hood is something everyone wants to be a part of and i am lucky i had the chance to share that experience. I made numerous friends that i still talk and interact to this day. There is nothing i am more proud of than being a soldier for a part in my life and serve my country overseas in Afghanistan.

Infantry Soldier (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 20 March 2018
I trained many hours through many tough terrains and difficult situations such as tear gas but it made me a stronger man. They may be strict and mean but its to make your punctuation improve and your skills speed up so that you are ready for anything that can be thrown at you whether its armed soldiers or stuck in a blizzard with nothing but your rucksack(backpack) and manage to survive a week out of that little backpack till you can find your way out. Do not let them deter you they just want to wean out the weak so you must push through it all.
Armoured Crewman, Royal Canadian Dragoons (Former Employee) – Petawawa, ON – 18 March 2018
If you want to serve your country and you want to be able to do stuff that the average Canadian will likely never have the opportunity to do, then visit your local recruiter and discuss a career in the Canadian Armed Forces!!!
Cook (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 15 March 2018
The environment of the military life is always one I will admire, strong team work, comradery and commitment to succeed are the keys and success of the military life. They take good care of their own as long as you give the same in return.
If you have the heart and dedication everything about it is a pro.
