    I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Consistent Pay, exceptional benefits in terms of health and dental, consistent salary increases and promotions

    Cons

    Pay is not related to how hard you work, just based on rank and how long you have been in the service. Consistently changing jobs and potentially moving every 2-4 years.

    Interview

    Recruiters tell you things that aren't true. Do your homework before signing the paper. Make sure it's what you want to do because it's a big commitment. One of the toughest but best decisions I ever made. Tough of great benefits and experience.
