Excellent experience for a young man in the trades
Hull Technician (Current Employee) – Halifax, Nova Scotia – 22 April 2013
My time with the Canadian Forces has been a very educational experience and has given me the neccessary skill set and discipline to be a productive employee wherever I work. I learned how to be an effective leader in a work environment, the importance of puntuality, unwavering professionalism, along with all of the experience in trades that my specific job gave me. A typical day would entail a meeting at 7:50am to detail the members of the shop as to what they would be fixing/maintaining/installing/fabricating that day. I then would carry out the task I was assigned to and when completed would find my supervisor to be tasked with something new. My co-workers/supervisors were/are some of my best friends. Working for someone you respect inside and outside of the workplace was an absolute pleasure. The hardest part of my job is being away from family for months at a time. The most enjoyable part of my job is the relief I feel after troubleshooting a problematic system and rectifying the issues through knowledge and skill.
