Rifleman (Former Employee) – Twentynine Palms CA – October 2, 2013
Learned a lot, trained a lot, management varies place to place. It's a pyramid of leadership and throughout your term you can move up or you can move down. The hardest part is being away from family at home but the most enjoyable is spending time with your fellow brothers and sisters in arms.
Intelligence Specialist (Former Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – February 20, 2017
On a typical day at work, we are usually up before the sun rises, and we typically are trained via PowerPoint when not doing on-the-job training. Management varies depending on the unit you are attached to and greatly varies throughout the Marine Corps. The workplace culture is typically depicted on how the management allows it to be, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. I would say the hardest part of the job is the sheer boredom on uneventful days, but the best part by far are your fellow brothers and sisters that you meet with on a daily basis to do your job.
Air Traffic Control Navigational Aid Technician (Former Employee) – Beaufort, SC – February 19, 2017
A typical day in the Marines was challenging but rewarding. Anything from daily physical training to On the job training always kept us on our toes, thinking and working hard but we always had a sense of success at the end of the day.
Avionics Calibration Technician (Former Employee) – MCBH Kaneohe Bay, HI – February 19, 2017
I was a lazy and immature before i joined. Flunked out of college, tried college again and dropped it when i get a decent job. Got laid off after a year. Once i became a Marine, that set me up for success for the rest of my life. I am in a much better place and successful and if i had to do it all over again i wouldn't change a thing.
Personnel Clerk (Former Employee) – Twentynine Palms, CA – February 19, 2017
Some kids join the military for the benefits or some other such reason. If you join it should be because of service to your country or it is important to you as a person, not for the pay. I made less than 25k a year and didn't think my career would end so abruptly but the life of a Marine is not for the faint. 5am go run, shower and shave, file papers and type for 8 hours then go on your merry way. I do wish that my managers were there for me rather than just let me be discharged but I hold no ill will. It was the best employer I ever had to this day.
Free food at the mess hall, uniforms, training opportunities

Typical day at work is always an adventure. learned many skills and experiences throughout the years in service. Management is fair, loyal, and committed to troop welfare. Work place is always fun and adventurous. Hardest part of this job is being away from family months at a time.
Electrical and Refrigerant Technician (Former Employee) – Cherry Point, NC – February 18, 2017
The Marine Corps is a good opportunity for a young adult to pay it forward to their country. The core values that are instilled in you from day one will change the way you view the world and the people around you in your everyday life.
Title, Radio Chief (Former Employee) – Miramar, CA – February 17, 2017
The Marine corp is the best military branch in the world. Marines are the most dedicated, loyal and professional people on the planet. I would recommend that everyone serve their country by joining the marine corp.
