The RET community is in bad shape with overdue reliefs and questionable community management!

Retc (Current Employee)

ProsThe pay is good for RET's, at least on the west coast. Even an RET2 on a decent ship will make over 70k per year, and an RETC will make close to or slightly past 100k provided the OT is decent (55 plus every 2 weeks). The job stability is outstanding provided that you maintain your clearance and all the other stuff that goes without saying.

ConsThe RET community is in bad shape. The management in Norfolk has lost control of the program, people are getting relieved (with regularity) 60-plus days late. It can't be all blamed on the placement specialist, but someone somewhere is at fault. RET's are doing what they want, getting extended vacation any way they can, and the head office is afraid to do anything about it. Maybe they just don't care.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a new community manager who actually does their job, and make both the placement specialist and RET's who are avoiding work more accountable.
