    I worked at US Coast Guard


    There is always room/opportunities for promotion even if it doesn't involve moving up in rank. It provided me a lot of opportunities to learn about myself and show the level of responsibility I was capable of.


    Politics, politics, politics. But that goes for every work place pretty much. Also, working with a small group of people in such close quarters creates drama inevitably, but staying out of it is a good way to keep your nose clean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what your people want and what they need. Recognize people more for their efforts and successes.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at US Coast Guard.

    Interview Details

    I met with a recruiter once with an appointment and it was pretty simple. He asked me some basic questions about what I wanted to do in the CG and how to get the enlistment process started. I wasn't like interviews for other jobs.

    Negotiation Details
    Hardly any negotiation. He did offer me a guaranteed district, but I am not sure if they are doing that anymore. They were not doing any bonuses of any kind when I signed up.
