    I worked at ROKA full-time

    Pros

    It was a part of my national duties as a Korean citizen and nice chance to experience how things are going in the army as a soldier.

    Cons

    Because it is a national duty in South Korea, the pay is almost nothing. I got paid only about 100 dollars a month.

    Advice to Management

    The current government of South Korea is now trying to change some policies, including the pay raise. I hope things will get better soon for the young people serving for the country.
