Experience of a Lifetime
Corporal (Former Employee), Havelock, NCDecember 15, 2014
Pros: work and life experience, skills development, a great culture developing teamwork
Cons: does not have conventional hours
A typical day in the Marine Corps is hard to describe due to the ever changing environment I was in Depending if i was deployed or back in the states a day deployed consisted of maintaining communications equipment consisting of fiber optics connections, phone systems and physical network connections. Should a problem in the network be found my job – more... was to assure that services be attended to and properly fixed. A normal day in the Marine Corps would consist of maintaining operational readiness of equipment. Duties throughout the Marine Corps included maintaining work areas and offices by completing custodial needs. – less

Fun place to start, with the option to stay.
QUALITY ASSURANCE ENGINEER (Former Employee), HawaiiDecember 15, 2014
Pros: travel, exciting, not the usual route
Cons: long hours, travel to places you don't want to
It was an eye opener to say the least. Starting your adult life in this type of environment can be an overall good experience. Typical work day. Promotions are not always done on merit, you most likely will be under the supervision of a not so smart person.

The USMC is the best decision i have ever made, it turned me into the man, husband and father I am today. You will find no one more loyal in life than a Marine on your left and right and no worse enemy when you cross them.

It's the Marines
Corporal (Former Employee), Twenty-nine PalmsDecember 13, 2014
Pros: part of something great, true service for your country
Cons: you move up or you move out
The most respected fighting force in the world. Key word "Fighting" its not like any other branch, You will serve in the Corps. It might be depressing sometimes, but knowing that you served your country as a Marine gains you more recognition that you will ever have. The expectation you will face when you move on from the Corps is unrivaled beyond anything – more... else. It's hard to put into words, but you don't join the Marines for college money, its a culture of fighting men and sometimes Marines forget that. – less

Loved my time is the Corps
Aviation Mechanic (Former Employee), San Diego, CADecember 12, 2014
Great time while i was a Marine. I met a lot of great people i went a lot of great places and I did it all while serving my country. You dont make a lo but free medical dental and food/housing means you dont have to make much but you do need to manage your money well. I wouldnt take back the time i spent in the military and i would do it all over again – more... if i had too. – less

constant change of enviroment
Supervisor and Mentor (Former Employee), Quantico, VADecember 11, 2014
Pros: constant change of enviroment. great health care.
The Marine Corps was a very challenging and fun place to work. We usually met up at 530am for personnel accountability and to workout with the staff. I learned how to properly supervise and manage personnel. I took the good and bad leadership principles to develop my own. I am a firm believer in leading by example. I will never ask someone to do something – more... that I will not do myself. The management was like everywhere else, you had good leaders and bad ones. That's why I took it upon myself to try and lead subordinates with respect firmness fairness and dignity. The hardest part of being in the Marines was being away from my family for months at a time. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Marines, especially meeting and befriending people from all walks of life. – less

Pros: needed to put in 110% effort if you wanted to be the best without question
Cons: you need to kow that you country comes 1st before your family
There is no other opportunity that I was truly thankful to be apart of than my time in the United States Marine Corps. It did not matter who you were or who thought you were unless you were willing to be part of the proudest unit of our nation's military service.
