What do you REALLY do in the Navy

Most of my time in the Navy was spent painting things and in particular endlessly polishing flats and general cleaning. The majority of it was pointless and if the Navy had any sense it would address this as I'm sure retention would shoot up. However it does lessen as you move up the ranks, and if you can switch your brain off at times and just get through it the overall package is good.

Rubbish - I've seen you wafus; all you do is loaf on the upper deck with sun-beds and if anyone else comes out it's a FOD hazard and we're told to get off.

Choose your branch.........

Plus you forgot about dropping mail bags in the oggin and dragging chains across the deck when you're getting your heads down!

Seems to be allot of conflicting story's. Good sign that life is varied i suppose.

Berniephot what was your job before you changed? and what is your job SF?

I'm hoping Warfare specialist doesn't envolve tons of cleaning because the op's room stuff sounds interesting to me.


if warfare specialist is the new EW, then i can recommend it! Being a gollie is cock on. You got to eck about with weather maps, dunno what the met banch did eally... You also get to colour stuff in with graph paper (although that was being phasd out) and you get your own office / w**knest, that only certain people can go into. Its easy street mate!
 
Hey, I just passed out as an AS(WS) two weeks ago, and join my ship on tuesday, i hope i get to go in the ops room and not cleaning all the time, but i doub thats gonna happen cos my ship is going in to refit!
