    I have been working at Marine Corps Community Services

    Pros

    You work with highly respected people and they care about you as a person not only as an employee. Great benefits once you are eligible.

    Cons

    High schooler with no experience gets paid the same as a bachelor's degree in Family & Child Development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept more experience and varied education for higher pay. Not just early childhood education. It's not a school. It's a "daycare".

    Cons

    Not all team members pulling their weight to accomplish daily goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of those who do not adhere to the MCCS ethos of world class customer service. Increase the hourly wage to $11.00.

    None, no benefits whatsoever unless you are full time

    Hire Full Time rather than hiring a bunch of Part Time not having enough hours.

    I worked at Marine Corps Community Services

    Pros

    Vacation time is good...IF you you get the chance to use it

    A great company to work for to help service members and their families.

    Part-time and full-time positions are great with security and 401K and decent time off benefits.

    Cons

    working retail is hard for this company but the same company also has hospitality and service industry jobs too so its nice to get in anywhere and move around.

    before obamacare put caps on hours for flex employees before you must pay benefits things were great for all...now flex get very low hours.

    no discounts for employees at all (except no tax)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn how to treasure ALL the people that work there

    Pros

    Very laid back, a lot of available training, many activities for employees. Onslow Beach where I was working is the best place to work. Dion Lynn, General Manager is an amazing boss.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. Department depends on managers who may not have any knowledge about their job but have preference, ei former military, spouses, etc..

    I have been working at Marine Corps Community Services

    Pros

    Sympathetic to those employees that are dependents of service members - flexible schedules, decent benefits, great retirement plan and 401K.

    Cons

    No opportunity for promotions or raises. Jobs are dead-end. "Promotions" and/or positions are filled based on who you know and not who is qualified. Little to no education assistance for employees seeking graduate degrees. No worthwhile professional development offered that will translate to the civilian world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show appreciation to your employees. Hire people that are actually qualified for the job and you will see a decrease in your employee turnover. Start offering raises, bonuses, and/or promotions. Start hiring from within and promoting your good/loyal employees. Offer good/worthwhile/beneficial professional development.

    I have been working at Marine Corps Community Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, great benefits and perks (gym access, PX (limited access), can live on some base housings....)

    Cons

    You work for the mafia, sometimes you don't always get to help people that you signed up to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Anyone who does not directly talk to a Marine every day needs to be trained once a week that their goal is to help these Marines, Sailors and families. There is a very distinct divide between those who work with Marines every day and those behind the desk that tell everyone else no. MCCS purchasing, that's you...
