Go to Work with you best friends
Its true, after basic you'll be going to work with your best friends. You will never have to wonder what to wear to work again, they will tell you. Do you enjoy running in circles and at the same time laughing hysterically at yourself and friends, then this is the job for you.

Not like real police
Training is excellent, Policing is very unlike civilian police, small bases very very boring, most supervisors are bored as well, so they like to micro manage, more concerned about what the Base Commander wants than fair justice, When in the CF we had a saying Big "M" Small "P" can't even write a speeding ticket, need to charge under "GPTR's" send people to court for speeding, now am civilian police officer, make more than Major in the CF MP's, plus now make overtime, CF won't pay overtime. Did more in 2 months as a Civilian Police in Edmonton than my entire 12 year career as an MP. If you want to be a "real police officer" the CF MP's would be your last resort.

Coworkers with a bond like no other
Lengthy application process for security clearance and background checks. Once you get through you end up working with a great group of people with lifetime bonds that incomparable.

Work culture and work/life balance dependent on position
All depends on what trade and unit. Pension and vacation days are really good. Expect to be away from home at least 3 months every year. Good job for someone looking for hard work, good pay/benefits, and job security.

Productive and fun workplace with travel opportunities
Usually the day would start out with an hour of physical training with your section at 7:30 am then to the office by 9. There were garrison duties performed on base according to unit and trade specific jobs. Field training/exercises happened every two months or so for 2 to 3 month durations. Available advancement in management every 3 years or less. A strong sense of camaraderie amongst troops and leaders. The hardest part of the job is leaving behind family/friends for training and missions for as long as a year sometimes. Also, lack of sleep and being on high alert can wear a body down. The most enjoyable part of the job is the travelling opportunities and camaraderie.

Best life experience you can have
Make sure to take extra courses for civilian life when you get out. They pay for them, and you'll need experience because the army isn't enough for experience to get a good job outside the military.

Not for everyone.
The demands placed on you depending on your field of work and unit will be more than some people will be able to manage. However if you are able to put in the hard hours, you can gain a level of knowledge and experience at a rate no one else can provide.

A typical day while within garrison would general consist of 7:30 start, 30 minute lunch supposed to end at 15:30, with 1-2 hours of overtime depending on demands. The overtime hours often got given back in terms of days off or time given during work to work out or play sports.


A typical time deployed depends heavily on the unit, the job and the demands. However for my scope of work they would involve 0600 start with 2000 end time with three meals in the middle. Sleep would be infrequent and interrupted and the work loads would be heavy.


By far the most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with, because of the demands placed upon you over time only a certain kind of person are left, they become very relate-able and approachable. The people you work with while in the forces is what makes the job something that keeps people going for entire careers and you develop a friendship that will not soon be forgotten.

Long term commitment
Love the experience. The team work between units in operation times can easily become frienly competition at home. Known schedule months ahead ( most of the time). Paid travel and necessities when on work related duties.

Many yrs ago
These answers were based on years ago. Very different environment. This is probably not what you really wanted to know about. Most recent was management position.

High Paced Meaningful Workplace with Advancement Opportunities
The job of a military officer is always unpredictable, sometimes frustrating but never boring. By becoming a part of this high functioning team, one will learn much from peers, subordinates and superiors alike, will advance commensurate to one's skill and have opportunities they had never dreamed of. I have spent over 20 years as a military officer, and I would highly recommend it as a career.

Prison, but with worse people and you get paid less
If you are trendy, have a pot belly, weak physical characteristics, low IQ (hovering around 90) and need constant daycare, you have found your nirvana. Dont lie to yourself, it is a huge joke and I recommend no good men ever help these creatures of darkness.

Due to the secrecy of the Department of National Defense, there is not to much that can be discussed on a public site as Indeed. In a interview, question can be asked about that career path.

Only you will fail you
Every day is a new day, and other than general duties, you don't know what you will be doing one day to the next. And, you don't know how you will work with or for - you just have to make the best of it. If you put in an effort, you will make it daily. If you don't ask for help when you need it or you don't admit when you make a mistake, you will suffer. Only you will fail you.

The highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country.
I joined the CAF(Infantry) after highschool and served for 20yrs. My overseas deployments includes; 1 tour in Bosnia and 4 tours in Afghanistan. Career in the CAF is very fulfilling and yet very challenging. Comradery is at its finest as friendship is forged through hardship regardless of one's background, I for one a visible minority. You can expect to travelling to exotic, interesting and dull places. Your middle management and immediate supervisors changes ever so often. Your entitled to extra pay during overseas deployments. Superb medical and dental plan and other benefits.
The less desirable are as follows; Separation from love ones for long periods of time. Copious amount of paperworks as your career progresses. Perpetually attempting to stay warm or cool depending on location. Lack of sleep and long hours of work. Ineffective equipments. Finally, the likelihood of getting injured or killed on the workplace is far greater than working on a 9 to 5 civilian job.

Great job
I enjoy working in a unique military environment and with military personnel. It is serious work but most people have a good sense of humour about working for the government.

Great job
Can range from relaxed to high stress from one day to another depending on your job and location. Great place for driven individuals who like to travel and are alright with being away from home. Vacation days and benefits are unparalleled.

You have to have a specific mentality to do the job.
There is a variety of different specific jobs that you are able to apply for, and many different positions. It is very strenuous and you have to be in the right mind set to be able to get through it. You will however be provided with so much life experience and abilities that will make you a better citizen overall.
Prós
Great benefits, life time family, experiences you will never forget
Contras
You have to get yelled at a lot, and will be physically and mentally strained
