Systems Technician
in Camp Pendleton, CA

"If you are right out of High School with no money to attend a University, this is a great place to get started."

What do you like about working at United States Marine Corps?

"They are a true family environment. They took me in raw without any I.T. know-how whatsoever. While paying me a full salary, they provided me with some quality PC maintenance and troubleshooting training (a 12 week intense course). They then allowed me to go out and do my job with very little supervision."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I'll state this again because without the USMC I don't know where I would be today. If you're like me and come from a large family where the parents don't have the means to put you and all of your siblings through a university then this is great way to get started. The U.S. armed forces will train you and give you some very good basic I.T. skills and after you have honorably completed your services with them, they will provide you with an educational package that will make it much easier for you to attend the university of your choice. Furthermore, because you already have hands on experience in the I.T. field, all of those bits and bytes are going to make a lot more sense while studying at the university."

What don't you like about working at United States Marine Corps?

"This would have to be the pay and the ability to grow. I give the USMC a lot of the credit for where I am today. However, for someone with my goals and ambitions the government's ability to adapt to new technologies just did not meet with my expectations."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I.T. is one field where going up the chain of command may not be the best way to manage the immediate needs of the end user."
