to me, it seems it was going to be no joyride but eventually it got better I was a new recruit and it took a lot of processing to actually get the position but got through all the police checks and was leaving to become a soldier in the NZ Defense Force
yes free lunch
long hours dorm
I loved my time with the Military. I was made redundant in 2017, otherwise I would still be there. In my time there I met a lot of wonderful people, from all walks of life. I learned all the skills I needed for formal and informal catering for large groups. the hardest part of the job was during the Christchurch earthquakes, yet in some ways it was the best, because the army is a family that takes care of its own. Management were wonderful to me when my husband was ill with cancer. They made it possible to see him every day, while allowing me to fit my work hours around this. A typical day at work was catering, while it was hard work, it was fun and very rewarding.
Free food, Superannuation, Study Leave, Great lifetime friends.
their isn't a Typical day when I join the Amy I didn't have anything other than a drivers licence for a car, by the time I left I was a driver trainer and Licence testing officer. made some life time friends the work was sometimes hard but with the culture of the Army your mates / co-workers would always pitch in and help the hardest thing about the Army was towards the end of my time was being away from Family for so long
time away from family
Professional Mission Focussed People Orientated A very good set of values Good leadership Well equipped and resourced Good balance between work and family life
Overall a good business to work for. A company that puts its workers first, with a great sense of achievement. The mix of work and life can be a struggle if you have a young family, so flexibility as an individual is very important if you decide to work for this company.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
