Indian Navy Employee Review
Very challenging but utmost satisfying
Having served in the Indian Navy is a matter of proud for me, that's for long 38 yrs. Have gone through many changed and fortunately been part of innovation at times. Grooming of individual in defence service I think is exemplary and would recommend corporates to emulate the same partly if not fully. Would remain grateful to our great motherland for having given the opportunity. E

I joined Indian Navy as an Artificer Apprentice. It is a 4 year training program. Seniors played crucial role in grooming the new recruits as per the highest traditions of artificers. This has resulted in developing highly skilled professionals who proved to be real assets both in Indian Navy and all walks of civil life. All other branches in Indian Navy look at Artificers with envy. The apprentice setup helps in developing top class sportsmen and professionals in this branch. Electrical,Mechanical and Hull Artificers are in the three main branches. From Electrical Artificers again aviation and submarine branches are formed. Similarly from Mechanical aviation and Submarine are sub branches. Hull Artificers deal with the ship body repairs and immediate repairs during damage caused. There are lot of opportunities to learn advanced aircraft system and to be move around nationally and internationally. The remuneration received for sea service was felt to be very low when compared to their counterparts in shipping. However overall it was a unique experience.
Free food and accommodation.
Sailing on board a war ship during monsoon season is very difficult.
