Physically demanding, traveling, and experience.
Pros: full dental and medical, housing, and benefits.
Cons: leadership, distance from family, over-worked, and little vaction time.
Through out my Marine Corp career:
-I was a supervisor, mentor, and counselor for several Marines under my charge.
-Everyday at work except weekends, involved morning physical training, normal 8-4 working hours. At work we usually went to training courses for our job in telecommunications, inspected gear, tested gear, training for deploying, and cleaned – more... before the end of the day.
-The hardest thing about this job was being so distant from family especially when deployed for 8 months or having little vacation time.
-At work I typically worked with about 25 Marines, all who where adaptive team players, hard workers, and friendly.
-The best part about the Marines, was all the opportunities we were offered to excel in our career, traveling the world, full health coverage, and school benefits. – less
