Most rewarding career
Section Head - Instructor/Curriculum Developer (Current Employee), Camp Lejeune, NCOctober 20, 2014
Pros: rewarding career, benefits
Cons: travel away from family and friends.
I cannot think of a company to work for that will offer the intangible benefits as the USMC. They take individuals with raw talent and desire and build on that foundation so the individual can achieve their true potential. The USMC will treat you with respect and dignity while holding you to the highest standards and instilling in you the drive to improve – more... yourself daily. There is no "typical day" in the USMC. Every day is a new adventure. The management mentors and develops you so that you are able to advance professionally and personally. The co-workers become a part of your "family" and always work together to accomplish the task. The hardest part of the job is being away from family and friends when you must travel. The most enjoyable part of the USMC is knowing that you have made a difference in the world for the better. – less

Maintenance Supervisor and Quality Assurance Rep (Current Employee), MCAS New River, NCOctober 6, 2014
Pros: job satisfaction, working with the coworkers
Cons: supply system and lack of funds for parts
While in the Marine Corps a typical work day would consist of Managing several workers in both preventative and conditional maintenance. Supervising a crew of anywhere from three to twenty you would ensure all tools and machinery were in proper conditions and inventoried while preparing for the next stage of maintenance.

Ensure all parts are being – more... ordered and where they are in the supply status to be issued. Being properly handled and accounted for. While supervising maintenance being conducted on several platforms and areas following the proper manuals with the proper tools and safety equipment and ensuring the maintenance is being done properly at all times.

I have learned how to successfully manage a maintenance team to ensure production with dealing with all forms of issues to include personnel, financial, social, and physical that would interrupt production. – less

Pros: good training, good benefits
Cons: harsh conditions
Each day started of with working out with my team members at the crack of dawn, then we set to the mission of the day. I learned a good sense of teamwork and belonging and a good work ethic. My teammates were my brothers, worked ate and slept in the same place. The hardest part of my job was that in the worst conditions we still were expected to perform – more... at 100 percent. The most enjoyable part of my job was the self reward I felt when each task was completed and the strive to finish the next. – less

Productive work day no matter what occured
Military Police (Current Employee), Yuma, AZSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: being physicaly in shape not just from the want but from the need of maintaining for the job.
A normal day of work would consist of me waking up at 0330 am to prepare for the day with getting food ready and lacing up my boots. Once at work at 0445 am I would sit in a morning brief of the issues that happened over the evening in the state In Yuma and on the installation, that includes fire alarms to domestic violence cases and god forbid a fallen – more... officer in the line of duty. Then depending on the day I would either be a gate sentry or vehicle patrol officer. Throughout the day I would patrol the installation arriving to any calls that would come in during the shift. My shift would end at 1730 or 530 pm after debrief I would head to the gym for an hour in a half. After the gym and work I would proceed to my home of record to relax and recuperate before heading back the next morning to do it again. – less
