Great envroment with great people
Computer Technician (Current Employee), Camp Pendleton, CAJuly 30, 2014
Pros: learned a lot about troubleshooting computers and switchboards
Cons: redundant
Most work days were redundant and very boring. I would come in grab a laptop and start troubleshooting. Once finished I would move on to the next one, and so on. The most enjoyable part of the job had to be the people I worked with. Being around social people made the days a lot more enjoyable.

Marine Recruiter (Former Employee), Missoula, MTJuly 30, 2014
Pros: benefits, free medical/dental, vacation time, job security
Cons: long work hours
Being a United States Marine is an honor. Typical work day is always different and always brings new challenges. I have learned team work as well as leadership. Management is an important part of any job and even more so in some of the situations that military members find themselves in on a daily basis. Even in extreme conditions you can always count – more... on your fellow Marines to be there when you need them. The hardest part of the job is being away from my family, and the most enjoyable part of my job is being able to see my family when i get home. – less

Productive and knowledgable workplace with a great group of people
Administration Specialist (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAJuly 30, 2014
A day at work starts at (07:30) for myself and it starts with me logging into my computer to check all the transactions that were processed & ran the night before for any discrepancies. I can also view any upcoming transactions and add some if I need to.

I've learned that I don't have to take on the entire load sometimes. I've learned its alright to – more... rely on dependable people and that if I need to talk, there were people there who would listen. – less

Great experience, did some of the most exiting things in the world.
Rifleman (0311) (Former Employee), Camp Lejeune, NCJuly 29, 2014
Pros: traveling the world and best training in the world.
Cons: spending months away from family.
Had physical training every day. Learned how to keep calm under pressure while still being able to operate and lead my subordinate. My co-workers were some of the most amazing hard working people in the world. Hardest part was being deployed in a dessert heat and still trying to operate at 100% capabilities. I enjoyed spending time with my fellow Marines – more... and conducting operations. – less

Telecommunications (Former Employee), USA and OkinanwaJuly 29, 2014
Boot Camp- Paris Island. You are mentally broken down and made to feel like you are the scum of the earth. But there is not greater feeling of the pride that you feel when you walk across the parade deck on graduation day.

Network/System Administrator (Former Employee), Quantico, VAJuly 29, 2014
Pros: free lunches, healthcare, job security
Cons: politics
Typical day started in the office at 7:30 with answering trouble tickets with issues within our building. Managing and maintaining the windows servers throughout the day and assisting the contractors with our Linux database.

I learned numerous including basic installation and operation of vMware, How to manage active directory within Windows Server – more... environments.

My co-workers were all eager to learn and easy to work with at most times.

The hardest part of my job were the 12+ hour days and 7 day work weeks at times.

Installing new software and hardware was the most enjoyable. – less

It's all about perspective
Systems Administrator (Former Employee), Jacksonville, NCJuly 28, 2014
Pros: learn new trade, free college, free tutition assistance while serving, military discount, meet a lot of new friends
Cons: getting shouted at, getting shot at, pulling pits on the range, being stationed in the desert, being stationed in the jungle/swamp
You could love or you could hate it.
My job was pretty skate. Depending on the time of year, PT was either in the morning or the afternoon. Living out in town, I preferred it in the afternoon. So, get to work between 0730 and 0800, do some typing, file some paper work, clean radios, and get work orders together.
My MOS was too broad for one person to – more... grasp all the fields. I'll just say communications, but it really meant, Networking, Systems Administration, Satcom Operator, Radio Operator, Wire-dog, Phone guy, Cryptographer, Keeper of Hard Drives and all things Classified, and that guy who works on all the random electrical stuff. That was the hard part of the job, knowing every that was expected of you.
On the other side of the coin, and this isn't the easy side, it's just the other hard side, is becoming a Marine. Not everyone makes it through Boot Camp, and not everyone these days gets accepted or gets to stay in. I got out after my first enlistment cause I now had a viable skill set for the civilian world and make extra 20K than I did in the Cream Corn with BAH, BAS, and almost as much as I made while getting shot at over in Iraqistan.
It's a hit or miss. I enjoyed a lot of it. Free college is a plus, whenever I get around to using that. – less

Pros: benefits, seein the world
Cons: no time off, no freedom, no privacy
If you envision working 12 on 12 off, 7 days a weeks, risking your life for your country in the armpit of the world and never seeing your family, then this is for you. I did ten wonderful years. Had to move on to raise my kids. Semper Fi!
