    I worked at US Coast Guard

    Pros

    Great training and relatively large amount of responsibilities at an early stage in the career.

    Cons

    The longer you stay in the organization, the further you get away from technical jobs and move into HR or management.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at US Coast Guard.

    Interview Details

    Easy stuff. Have your finances in order, don't pop positive on a drug test, don't have any felony charges, and don't be a complete idiot. If you're 17 or older and you have generally made wise decisions up to that point in your life.....then you should have no problem enlisting into the Coast Guard. Depending on the financial status of the military, you may have to be prepared to play the waiting game once you sign
