Does a career with NAVFAC mean that I’ll be in the Navy?

That means you will not be relocated to new locations without notice or consent. You won’t wear a uniform. The reporting structure is not military. These are civilian careers in support of the military. You will be a federal government civilian employee, and you will not be joining the armed forces.

Will I earn as much as I would in the private sector?
NAVFAC’s salary is comparable to the private sector. In fact, in some instances we offer more lucrative pay than major private sector contractors. You’ll also receive generous benefits. including a thrift saving program with employer match, paid leave, healthcare coverage, flex time and more.

Is the technology leading edge or less advanced because it’s government and not private sector?
