Get up at 0500 and PT, get to work at 0700. Depending on our mission at hand (preparing to deploy overseas or on ship), it would dictate our training schedule.

Great Job
Team Leader (Former Employee), Camp Pendleton, CAJuly 4, 2014
Your up in the morning with the rising sun and ready to go to serve at anytime. In the Marines you are required to be ready at all times for anything and that includes running. There is no typical day in the Corp. You go to bed and wake up on someone else's time.The Marines have taught me discipline, integrity, honor, courage, commitment, situational – more... awareness, leadership, to adapt and overcome, logistics, as well as organizational and preparation skills. The hardest part about being a Marine is being away from family. The most enjoyable part is all the places you get to see. – less

being in the Marines was really the best time so far of my young life. you learn lots of skills some you can use in the civilian world some you cant. you work with a lot of interesting people and go to a lot of interesting places all around the world. it does suck waking up really early but over time you get use to it. but the best part about it is – more... you get paid to stay in shape, travel the world, hang out with good friends, shoot guns and blow stuff up who wouldn't love it. – less

Marine Corps Life

Pros: full coverage on healthcare and dental
Cons: micromanagement, having a staff that unapproachable
Marine Corps is a lifestyle not a job. On the job 24/7 365. Most days we spent our time training in the field or at the rifle/pistol range. Some administration work was involved. I learned management skills by being in charge of multiple individuals and overseeing their training personally. As well as protection and security measures. The Marine I served – more... with were some of the best quality of men you could find in the Military. My battalion was tier 1 among all of them. Hardest part of the job was the countless hours on in training for deployment. The most enjoyable part of my job was being with my team on deployment to Afghanistan. – less

The hardest part of this job is passing boot camp and basic training. I've learned that work came easy because everything we do in the military begins with training. Everything we do stresses safety.

It was a great experience.
Air Traffic Control Communications Technician (Former Employee), Camp Pendleton, CAJune 6, 2014
Pros: benefits package, leadership development, preperation for a simular civilian career.
Cons: lacked funding for neccessary tools.
The marine corps is an entity of its own, the focus on reliability, efficiency, and accountability. However, as with most jobs, there are a lot of politics. Some of which were almost unbearable, but proceeding through the difficulties I was faced with allowed to me to have a more fulfilled sense of dedication to the career, and to the people I worked – more... with. – less
