Great opportunities to learn and work with some of the most elite operators in the US Military

The Marine Corps gave me a sense of pride and honor for the duration I was Active. During my time I attended a variety of Sniper, Combat hunter, Survival, Close Quarters and Urban Warfare, And also Foreign Weapons Expert training. I deployed twice which gave me an immense opportunity to operate in real life situations, and also cross train and work with Allied Foreign Military’s Around the world.
Pto, incredible advancement opportunities as well as incentives in all aspect of daily life
Long unpredictable work hours, countless days, weeks and months away from loved ones.
WORK CENTER SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 18, 2018
Military is military and some things have to get done whether we like it or not. That means in early and out late. A lot of change in plans and being able to adapt to certain circumstances on the fly. But if you have absolutely no idea what to do with your life, you won't regret joining. It help me find my love for engineering. Its a great place to start as long as you're willing to put in the hard work, discipline, and fortitude.
LAV Crewman (Former Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – December 17, 2018
a typical day at work would be wake up at four a.m. and run three to for miles than work on LAVS until around six p.m. . I learn how to use tools and lead and train men on how to work on the LAVs. The work culture was if your not doing something productive your in the wrong and stay busy also have respect for others. The hardest part of the job was not having all the tools for the job and still got to do it and finishing the job for the day.
Terrible leadership nobody cares about each other work 10-14 hours a day at barely survivable income no overtime #1 most stressful job in the U.S if you want to stay, you can stay for most people unless other circumstances disqualify you. full benefits
Cpl (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, NC – December 17, 2018
Expect to clean quite often the first two years; after that expect to manage quite often. Career opportunities are awesome. I was able to get my associates while I was in. Vacation days are really fair. I was deployed overseas in Iwakuni Japan. They were not found of locals.
The people to your right and left make it enjoyable.
Infantry Squad Leader (Former Employee) – Kaneohe, HI – December 16, 2018
I served four years honorably in the United States Marine Corps infantry. My unit was first battalion, third marine division. While serving, I deployed twice to Iraq. On my second deployment I led squad and platoon operations for varying missions based on ever changing objectives. It was the best and worst time of my life.
The best organization that I have ever worked for.
Operations Chief (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 15, 2018
I absolutly loved the United States Marine Corps. My wife on the other hand would disagree as I was constantly deployed and she had to raise our children in my absence more than she would have liked too. I miss working for the USMC & the total Loyalty and Honesty of the coworkers. We had a very tight bond for each other.
Team work, Band of Brothers
Constant Deployments to Hostile Locations away from Family
Marine Corps Embassy Security Guard (MOS 8156) (Current Employee) – Quantico, VA – December 15, 2018
The Marine Security Guard Program is geared more towards single Marines than those in relationships or planning to marry. A Marine who is intending on marrying but is placed onto the program must wait until he/she successfully completes the program before being able to be married. To successfully complete the program, a Marine must serve a minimum of two years on the program.
Machine Gunner (Former Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – December 15, 2018
No theres nothing good to say so I don’t want to say anything. Anyone who stays in is too thick headed to admit they have no way out. Getting out is a leap of faith but the entire time you are in it is a psychological experience you don’t want to go through.
Friends are great, just about everything else sucks
Combat Marksmanship Coach (Former Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – December 14, 2018
Life in the marine corps isn’t at all easy. Between long work hours, strict rules and regulations and bosses who have no common sense and who treat you like a child. Plus many other things that make life difficult. It isn’t all bad though. The pay isnt too bad, you get some pretty good benefits, and the friends you make become closer then family sometimes
