Quality Assurance Manager (Avionics' Technician ) (Current Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – May 26, 2017
Marine Corps is a warrior's life style that is high demand of your time and body. Work with some of the finest people in this country. Hardest part of the job is leaving your family behind for long periods of time.
Typical work day started at 5 am with morning PT, then actual work. As an intelligence analyst, it was my job to collect and process raw information into useful information beneficial to the mission. Management depended on the supervisor, some are more strict than others. The workplace culture was friendly overall, and since we all had the same objectives it was easy to accomplish tasks as a team. The hardest part of the job was adapting to the ever changing demands of the military. The most enjoyable part were the benefits.

You need to adapt and overcome obstacles to succeed. This job is only for the best of the best, once a Marine always a Marine. Your Chain of Command is made up of your peers and that isnt always the best recipe for success.

High tempo work in the Aviation community. A brotherhood like no other. Always being productive with all the available programs within the community, if you let it falter then the fleet goes down. Safety has to always be on point with a 360 degree view of your surroundings.

Infantry/Communications Specialist (Former Employee) – Various Locations – May 25, 2017
Being a United States Marine is one of the toughest, most challenging, and awesome jobs on the planet. The work days can range from long and tiring to short and sweet. Including lots of time spent training in the field. The work environment varies from fun and exciting to boring and strict, depending on the command's personnel. Becoming a Marine also comes with the opportunity to travel around the World. The best part of the job is building bonds, traveling, and learning a sense of camaraderie. You acquire professional skills, a sense of self knowledge, and memories that will last a lifetime. Semper Fi!
Great experience where I acquired lifetime qualities and lots of skills.
Network Administrator & Technical Controller (Former Employee) – Miramar, CA – May 25, 2017
My time in the Marines has given me a plethora of experience which includes my speciality skills in the IT field as well as the ability to lead, manage, work efficiently and thoroughly, communicate well with others and to work as a team. The most enjoyable part of working in the Marines for me were the people who I had encountered throughout my time. Some of my best friends today are fellow Marines who I had met while serving. Another enjoyable aspect of the Marines was the constant training and installation of networking equipment. I very much enjoyed the fast-paced and ready-to-work mentality that the Marines had to offer. The downside was that some weeks there would not be much personal time that was offered. Some months I would work around 300 hours in a month.
The professionalism, skills, and qualities that come along with being in the Marines.
Field Radio Operator (Former Employee) – Camp Lejeune, NC – May 25, 2017
Becoming a United States Marine isn't easy or fun. The hours are epically long and the payoff is decent. As a veteran I will never forget. Remember if a Marine isn't complaining, then there is something wrong.
Productive work space, when were not working, were either out training or exercising
Shipping and Receiving Warehouse Clerk (Former Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – May 25, 2017
The Marine Corps is a place where leadership can be instilled in anybody who can become a Marine. It can teach you many good and bad traits, but you take what you learn from it. For me it gave me the ability to step out of my comfort zone and go lead others. The atmosphere at times can be quite stressful and quick paced, but i feel that is where you learn more to be tactically proficient at what you do.
