Us Navy Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The United States Navy "USN" is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the eight uniformed services of the United States. It is the largest and most capable navy in the world and it has been estimated that in terms of tonnage of its active battle fleet alone, it is larger than the next 13 navies combined, which includes 11 U.S. allies or partner nations. It has the highest combined battle fleet tonnage and the world's largest aircraft carrier fleet, with eleven in service, two new carriers under construction, and five other carriers planned. With 336,978 personnel on active duty and 101,583 in the Ready Reserve, the U.S. Navy is the third largest of the U.S. military service branches in terms of personnel. It has 290 deployable combat vessels and more than 3,700 operational aircraft as of June 2019, making it the third-largest air force in the world, after the United States Air Force and the United States Army.
On September 2020 a former employee wrote for Indeed about working at the USN, he said run far far away: if you want a job where you get screamed and cussed out for no reason and are treated less than human this is the job for you! If you like people who abuse their power instead of leading and teaching, sign right up.
ABE (Former Employee) says"Higher ups will always use you to get a raise, but will never help you get promotions. Cons: Literally everything about it."
Military Spouse (Current Employee) says"Don’t join. They don’t take care of service members or their spouses. Long hours, will uproot you’re family during a pandemic, relocate you across the country and then not even give your spouse a job on base. Don’t fall for it. They don’t even take care of their own."
Electronics/Software Engineer (Current Employee) says"Stupid work rules. Stupid managers. Managers don't care about there employees. Nobody cares about anything. Always fighting for workload. Never enough money for anything. Just don't work here. Cons: Everything"
Aviation Ordnanceman, Petty Officer Third Class (Former Employee) says"I only did 5 years but it seems like the longer you stay in the more brain cells you lose cause everyone I worked for was an absolute idiot. Only good thing to come from this enlistment was a handful of awesome friends and a couple visits to other countries. Cons: idiot people, dumb bosses, the most ignorant people you could think of"
Sonar Technician (Former Employee) says"My experience was horrible so take this with a grain of salt but I hate the military now and everything to do with it. It sucks and it's not worth it at all."
ABE (Former Employee) says"Do not become an ABE. Worse rate in the Navy!! They will work you like a dog. If you do become one good luck trying to cross rate as it is nearly impossible Cons: Toxic environment, toxic people, stressful work like changes"
AWO2 (Former Employee) says"the recruiter is pained to lie to you. the only benefit is the"
Management Analyst (Office Automation and Marketing) says"Working as a navy civilian all depends on the command you are in. JBPHH is a joke! Leadership is made out of high ranking service member's wives who are not qualified. Coworkers were promoted through favoritism, and not based off of work ethic or experience. Cons: leadership, mentor-ship, mismanagement"
Labor and Delivery Hospital Corpsman (Former Employee) says"Would not recommend to anyone at all. You belong to the government, so you don’t have control of what you want to do anymore. Only good thing is that I’m getting my education paid for."
PICU RN (Former Employee) says"My division officer, Christa Duncan-Arfaa was a horrible leader & fostered a culture of fear in our unit. I left after12 yrs, because of her. She harassed and bullied people ( including me) and created a hostile work environment for me."
Navy Corpsman (Former Employee) says"Experiences vary, but it's all dependent on how you play the game and how many times you say yes to tasks without asking questions. If you are "selected" to succeed your leadership will pour they're time in to you to develop and mold you in to a better sailor. Age plays no real factor in how they value your life experiences with regards to the job and most people will deflect to the fact that rank is always the trump card. Cons: yes"
Aviation Boatswain's Mate Handler (Former Employee) says"Don’t take care of their people or help them when something is wrong had a heart condition rather than helping they separated me with no benefits or anything. Cons: Everything else"

Legal Clerk (Former Employee) says"I really have no response, I served my time honorable. I am happy for the experience and the life lessons that it has gave me. I would of rather went to college."
Seaman E-3 (Former Employee) says"Navy Recruiters are the biggest liars! They do not care about you. They just need to fill some positions. Do not do this job! No fair treatment in the navy. They will treat you based on how you risk your life and/or do private things for the boss Cons: too many to list here: racism, sexism, favortism. boss is like a dictator, no common sense"
Machinist Mate (Former Employee) says"Depending on your chain of command can make or break it. Don't expect to have any free time what so ever if you have any useful skills. They expect you to only show so much motivation to do stuff and as soon as you have too little you're looked down on, if you have too much they abuse you."
Receptionist (Former Employee) says"Terrible leadership, no organization, abusive, and dirty."
Nuclear Machinist's Mate (Former Employee) says"Naval Nuclear Power Program is not for the feint of heart. Unless you are there to serve your country and fully invest yourself in the philosophy the program is built on, I advise to look somewhere else. It will put a heavy burden on your family, your relationships and yourself. It will push you to your limit and if it breaks you, then you will be in a world of hurt with very limited ways out. In my opinion the large bonuses and fast promotions are not worth the same amount as the things you will have to give up to receive them."
Hospital Corpsman (Former Employee) says"it is not worth you mental and physical health, they don’t care about you you’re just a number. Find other ways to pay for your college, this isn’t worth it"

Donald D Gove says"I've ordered from this company once before, I received my order, but this time I wasn't so lucky, this website and company sells military t-shirts, gifts, etc. it says it's run by Veterans, but I don't believe that's true, because if it was run by Veterans it would have much better customer service, I've tried to contact them 3 times by phone, left messages, emailed them 3 times with no response, I ordered 2 t-shirts from them, I wanted to get the status of my order, tracking information etc. They have absolutely wasted my time, if you want to order merchandise from this company, I'd highly advise against it, they never answer the phone, it puts you through to a recording, and they don't respond back by either phone or email, I will never order from this company again, I'll let my bank handle the rest of the dispute, this is one crappy company, I think they're lieing to people about the Veterans part of it. I don't know any Veteran's that would allow they're company to be run like that."
