Great to serve with the right perspective...
Flight Equipment Division Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 26, 2015
The Marine Corps has a legacy of tradition and camaraderie in both peace and war. Most applicants do not know most of the intricate details of their MOS is until they finish their MOS school (after boot camp) and enter the fleet. When in the fleet, there are often times where the personnel do match the quantity of workload. If you have a lot of personal drive, patience, work ethic, and an ability to see the larger picture of the overall mission you are part of, there are great rewards for military service. It does take a lot of personal accountability and re-evaluation of priorities throughout your service. These things are often not done, especially at the junior level. However, with proper perspective, planning throughout a career and steady dedication to your role in the mission will prove to yield great results.
Great benefits, business travel (tax free in certain areas), clearly defined promotion paths, strong sense of purpose.
Longer hours than expected (depending on MOS), 24 duty days, deployment schedule may effect homelife.
