Cons: unknown destinations, leaders are inconsistent
I do not recommend the apprentice program. It's a way to get people in the door when all the good jobs are already full.
This is why they PAY YOU to be an apprentice. I wasn't smart enough to see this when I signed up.
I gained an immense amount of professionalism, attention to detail, and work ethic in the Navy.
You will never make better friends – more... in your life than when you travel far from home for the first time to a scary unknown place together. You really bond with people.
It's a great foundation for anyone right out of high school. I personally am glad I didnt go to college right out of high school. You can also get college paid for when you get out. – less
