Avi. Technician (MOS 6323) (Current Employee), Jacksonville, NCJuly 5, 2015
Pros: Pay, Job security, Brother/Sisterhood.
Cons: hours worked
This is something that was told to me when i joined, and also now saying to my junior marines. This Lifestyle is a slight Change from the civilian world. My job in the Marine Corps required long flex-able hours anywhere from 24-16. My job is very rewarding as long as you do what your told when you are told to do it your advancement is limitless.

Platoon Sergeant and Networking Team Leader (Former Employee), Camp Lejeune, NCJuly 2, 2015
Pros: The mass amount of hands on training

A typical work day was show up at work at 0630 and it was none stop hands on training with the gear, lunch then right back to training.

The most enjoyable part of my job was the com rotary we all shared.

Great, but not for me
Supervisor (Former Employee), Lancaster, PAJune 18, 2015
Pros: Benefits, health insurance, dental insurance, guaranteed income
Cons: Some days were hard
Guaranteed income and a lot of good benefits. You meet a lot of good people daily and work with people with similar goals as yourself. Every day is different to be honest, some days require a lot of heavy lifting and item transportation. Other days might just include training new employees and getting them ready for their future. Everyone has a chance at becoming a manager of their own sector if they qualify but it does take hard work a lot of dedication. Being in physical shape was a requirement but it was easy to stay in shape with the proper management that we had. Overall, it was a great job but it isn't for everyone.

Daily training and learned something new nearly every day
Recruit (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJune 16, 2015
Pros: everyone succeeded and failed as a team, always busy
Cons: long days, mess ups were punished with intese training
A typical day would start early but every day it was something different we were either training, running drill, cleaning, or stocking up the entire base with necessities.
while here i learned many valuable skills such as; improving my leadership skills by taking my team to complete a task, putting attention to detail while we received orders sometimes from multiple people at the exact same time.
while here me and my co-workers had to learn how to work in a team immediately and learn how to see past everyone's differences because we were all in the same position.
The hardest part of being here was the long days, and getting use to listening and understanding multiple people at one time.
The most enjoyable part was knowing me and my team could work as one and knowing we complete all our task just as good or even better than others.

Very Relaxed shop with a lot of opportunities
USMC 1141 Generator Operator/Electrician (Current Employee), Camp Lejeune, NCJune 2, 2015
Pros: A lot of benefits.
Cons: Have to be ready to take part in anything asked of you.
If not deployed, a typical day at our shop is relaxed and well managed. Every one knows and does their part. I have worked with a plethora of Marines, from the most drama filled to the most relaxed and lazy. But its getting to meet new people weather in our country or another was the most enjoyable part about my job.
