Military Workers, Enlisted

Work Environment

The work environment for military personnel depends a great deal on what branch of service they are in and their specific job. For example, someone serving on a submarine will spend months living in extremely close quarters at sea; someone else working at a military hospital will experience the hustle and bustle of a health care facility; and an individual assigned to an international peacekeeping force may work in the tense atmosphere of a fragile truce between two bitter enemies. No matter what the job, however, strict discipline and adherence to regulations are required in all branches of the military. Most military service people work full time but their scheduled days and hours vary depending on their occupation and the military branch. They are also expected to work beyond scheduled hours when missions need to be fulfilled.
