Avionics Technician (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 20, 2014
While in the United States Marine Corps I was constantly challenged with troubleshooting electronics equipment, as well as supervising a shop of twenty seven personnel. During this time I was able to grow into a proficient and tactful leader while simultaneously increasing my technical knowledge on electronics equipment. The most enjoyable part of my – more... job was guiding and mentoring junior technicians and seeing them grow into their skills. – less

Career Planner/Counselor (Current Employee), Camp Lejeune, NCAugust 19, 2014
Pros: healthcare, education, free gym, daycare, making an impact on marines
Cons: not enough time in the day to be able to talk to everyone
My day starts even before I walk in the door. Sometimes I cannot even get changed into my uniform because I have a line at my door with Marines waiting to see me for a counseling, a signature on their paperwork, needing to sign up for a class, needing to sit and talk about their career and what the next steps are, etc.

My management gives me 100% full – more... support. I believe that in the past 20 years this is one of the best commands that I have every worked in.

My Co-workers have their own billets and separate offices that they need to tend to, but we all like to try and support each other as much as we can. We try and get up from behind our desks and go see each other so we can take a quick break from the chaos of the day. It is nice to know that your co-workers do care enough to get up and walk down the hallway to see how your day is going, and then I do the same for them. It makes the day go by faster and a bit better.

The hardest part of my job is when a Marine comes into my office and spills their story and I know deep down that there is no way that they will be retained for future service because they just gave up, they got in too much trouble or they did not get the recommendations that they needed to be retained. It breaks my heart that we can't keep everyone, but we have a mission and it is quality and not quantity.

The most enjoyable part of my job is when I am invited to a Marines promotion to the next rank and I am asked to promoted him or her. That is a complete honor to take the old and give them a new rank. I be able to shake their hand and give them a few quick words of wisdom to carry on to the next rank is such a great sense of pride. Knowing that they thought of me to do that gives me a tingling sensation that will never leave me. – less

Pros: travel, benefits, deployments, motivated people
Cons: balance of personal life and military life
Every ones experience is different in the military. I loved traveling and working with other units and branches of the military. The training I received was always top notch. The hardest part of the job was being able to balance personal life with military life. The work was rewarding and knowing you were apart of something bigger felt great.

Corporal (Former Employee), Paris Island, S.C.August 17, 2014
Pros: traveling the world. meeting great people.
Cons: the pay was not that good at the time. and being sipped off to war.
I enjoyed my four year tenure in the miltary. It taught me reponsibilty, dicipline etc. I sometimes wish that I would have retired from the military. But just like any other job the military had its ups and downs. You get a chance to bond with a lot of great people in the military, I would not trade that experience for anything in the world!
