You are in bootcamp for 13 weeks going through the hardest US military training there is
You learn teamwork, how to follow orders,and leadership
Depending upon the job you have selected or been given you go through additional training and service out the remainder of your contract performing the skills you have learned.
Your co-workers become your brothers and sisters, who you are willing to fight next to and die for if need be
Hardest part of the job is being away from your loved ones
The most enjoyable part is knowing you are protecting your friends and family

The few, the proud, the marines...
Engineer, Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Camp Pendleton, CAMay 24, 2018
Definitely something for young people to consider, as I went to a lot places, seen a lot of things other people do not normally see in their lifetimes. Provided college benefits and helped me buy my first home. I'm really glad that I did it, but it's not a long term career for most people.
Pros
It has it's fun moments.
Cons
War can be a little nerve wracking (the first time).

Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Camp Lejeune, NCMay 24, 2018
Its not for everyone, only the few. Long hours, stressful environment. I don't know what else to say, its the military you love it and hate it. a cycle of up and downs but always surrounded by your brothers!
