the marines
Rifleman (Former Employee), Jacksonville, NCApril 22, 2015
when i worked for the marines you would wake up work out have a formation, do some classes or go out for some training and then you would do it all over again. Sometimes you would go out for 3 weeks for training sometimes you'd go out for 2 months. the training was always good you always learned something new in the field that could help you when your over seas.

E-2 Lance Corpral (Former Employee), Camp Pendleton, Ca.April 22, 2015
Pros: Travelling
Firing m-16s, 60,50 caliber machine guns, and 105mm howitzers. I learned about the different types of ammo and about being a leader.I trusted management with my life. My co-workers from the east coast were great.Even though setting up the howitzers was very hard work getting to fire them made it all worth while.

Great Organization all the way around
Mail Clerk (Current Employee), Beaufort, SCApril 22, 2015
Pros: Paid every 15 days, medical and dental is free.
Cons: Deployments depending on location
I served in this great organization for over 12+ years, and it has taught me a lot of great things as far as leadership, mentoring, time management, and many more things. You can not beat the pay, due the fact you get paid every 1st and 15th of the month. All your medical and dental benefits are paid for, so every time that you visit one of those two places you do not have to worry about paying anything. You are definitely guaranteed job security every four years, as long as you do what you are supposed to do.

Fast pace and challenging
Supply Administration and Operations Specialist (Former Employee), Camp Pendleton, CAApril 22, 2015
Pros: healthcare, VA benefits
On a usual day, I would be at work by six o'clock am and take accountability of the troops. After I made sure everyone made it safely to work, we would do some kind of physical training exercise until eight o'clock am. As a supply specialist working in the Marine Corps, we are in charge of constantly keeping track of gear through consolidated reports and providing support by procuring items or equipment essential to the mission. On a typical day at work we would start work at eight o'clock am, if we were doing a work up for a deployment then we would be doing equipment transfers from other units scheduled throughout the week. Most of the time we are counting gear, spread throughout the battalion, and processing item requisitions for troops. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to meet a lot of different marines and travel all over the world. The hardest part of the job was training new Marines who came into this field of work. What I learned from working as a supply specialist was managing and using my time effectively to complete the mission.

The Corps is what you make of it
Lance Corporal (Current Employee), The WorldApril 21, 2015
Pros: Military discoun
Cons: 24/7 on call actually means that
Your typical day is doing the same thing you did yesterday and what you will do tomorrow. It all depends on your job and assignment.

I have learned to shoot a target at over a quarter mile. I can take apart an M16 and put it back together blindfolded. I have learned to give orders and take them.

Management is different depending on your unit.

Marines are all the same, that is why we joined.

The hardest part is learning to swallow your words and understand that it is "one size fits all" no matter the rank.

The most enjoyable part is having other people who are willing to listen and not afraid to tell you what's wrong to your face.

Sergeant (Former Employee), CAMP LEJEUNE, NCApril 21, 2015
A typical day for a Marine infantry man would involve training on the job, traveling a lot to employ all knowledge learned in the school of infantry. Individuals in this line of work tend to be a little ruff around the edges, so this profession isn't for everyone. The hardest part would probably be home sickness due to constantly being in different environments within very small windows of time. Most enjoyable moments for me was always in the field working or being very independent at a young age.

Field Radio Operator (Former Employee), twentynine palms, CAApril 21, 2015
Being in the Marine Corps was the best decision I have made in my life. I was taught discipline, structure, and how to work hard. I also got to enjoy watching over the junior Marines and teaching them day to day. I loved to work as a team but also being in charge. The benefits were worth the hard work that I put in for those 4 years.

Rough, intense and life changing.
Infantryman (Former Employee), Kailua, HIApril 21, 2015
Pros: Good people, friends and peers to work with. Steady income and benefits. GI bill.
Cons: Not much free time, Away from the family often, Rude and power hungry leadership. Incompetent leadership.
The Marines was a life changing event to say the least. I am incredible thankful I have completed this and earned the title Marine. Although, I would recommend some new eyes inspecting the higher ups in the Corps. Many of them I felt were corrupt or just in it for themselves and would screw over the "little guy" for career boosts. I am honored to have served with some of my best friends in the world and I would do anything for them. I just want the Marines to be a more positive place for the future generations to come. I would definitely do it all over again!
