    Pros

    the best reasons are your own. You cant do it for someone else. They give you skills you cannot receive anywhere else

    Cons

    you have to make that commitment fully you cant see it as a job it must be your lifestyle. Its the hardest thing most people can ever do in there life

    Former Employee - Aircraft Mechanic in Jacksonville, NC (US)
    Former Employee - Aircraft Mechanic in Jacksonville, NC (US)

    I worked at US Marine Corps full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a great amount of skill including teamwork, attention to detail, work ethic, leadership, independence, and did I mention attention to detail? All of which transfer ESPECIALLY if you honorably discharge first term. You can take some of the things you learn here to great lengths, especially after using that GI Bill (which is awesome).

    Cons

    Long shifts, strong mental (unreversable) stress, considerably less rights than a civilian counterpart, and very short, if any, lunch breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your troops come first, ALWAYS.
