I graduated from high school at 17. I worked my tail off and got my BA in Math by the time I was 20. I enlisted in the Navy. I didn't go for an officer program because I didn't know if I wanted to make the commitment. It was four years for enlisted, and six for a commission. My interest wasn't a career. The degree allowed me to enter as an E-3 as opposed to E-1. That gave me about a year lead on the guys without the degree. About four years later, when it came time for me to reenlist for my E-6. But somebody dusted off my degree and recommended me for OCS. I retired at age 45. When I got out, I got a couple more degrees on the GI Bill. Then I started a second career managing government contracts for a management consulting firm. I got the job because of my military experience (25 years), my management experience (about 20 years as a Navy officer), my government experience (about 7 years at the Pentagon), my recent security clearance (courtesy of the DoD), and my education (due mostly to the military via the GI Bill). I worked at that job for 12 years. I'd accumulated another retirement plan in addition to my military pension. During those 12 years I purchased a house on a VA-insured loan... and paid it off in ten years (the second career paid very well). I traveled for about five years... you can go just about anywhere in the world for free if you're retired military. Some guys evaded the draft. Some stayed in only one hitch. They went to work in the civilian sector. While they were still in the mail room I'd moved into supervisory roles. When they'd finally moved into supervisory positions, I' was in middle management. And when they made it into the junior executive pool, I'd been in upper management, and into policy and planning on a national level. Some of those guys finally made it up into those 800 square foot, glassed in, corner offices way up in those tall office buildings where they're working 50-60 hours a week just to make ends meet. In their rare free moments they dream about travel, adventure... maybe hitting a silly little white ball down the middle of the fairway of some exotic golf course. The more adventurous think about taking up SCUBA diving... maybe even sky diving. I did all that stuff when I was young enough to enjoy it... and I got paid extra for doing it. I live in a Massachusetts Home now. I'm renting my place out. The rent more than pays for my stay here. That leaves my pension and retirement pretty much untouched. Just about everything here's take care of. Medical, dental, even transportation and entertainment. I'm 70 now. I still swim a couple miles a day, run 2-3 miles three times week, and alternate between weights and cardio six days a week. Every once in a while I think about those "smart guys" who are probably still working in those offices... and I can't help but chuckle. Is the navy a good place to start a career? It was for me. The Navy has the best training. The Navy benefits are just as good as the other branches inasmuch as they all have pretty much the same programs. There's bad stuff too. It's harder to advance in the Navy than the other branches. But that does tend to make Navy pay grades mean more. Hiring managers who know their business know that you don't advance beyond E-3 merely for converting oxygen into carbon dioxide. People go in with the idea of a specific job (about which they know nothing... but that it sounds "cool"). So they prepare, practice, study, and retake the ASVAB until they finally get a score high enough to get that job (for which they're neither qualified not particularly well suited). Based on that score they get the job they wanted, and for which they cheated the system to get. When they find out something about the job, they find they really don't like it and want out. Some, in an effort to honor their commitment try to stay with it. They work 4-5 times as hard as somebody suited for the job... just to keep up. They're miserable and quickly burn out. And, for that, they blame the military. About half your Navy career will be spent attached to a ship. That means separation from family. But it also means travel... you'll learn that the Navy wrote the book on "mobile home living." The deal is, complaining is something of an avocation in the military. Some people, if they run out of things to complain about, will complain about that. If you run out of things to gripe about, somebody will gladly provide you with a list. I remember my first few days in Boot Camp. We got up before the sun and straggled (tried to march) to breakfast. People complained about the hour and the cold. I remember thinking how awesome the sunrises were in San Diego at that time of year. And I much preferred marching in the cool of the morning to the heat of the afternoon. They complained about the heat too. The point is, you can gripe about the hour, or you can enjoy the sunrise. I won't lie and say that everything in the Navy was wonderful. No job's perfect. But I'd hardly have stayed in a quarter of a century had the good far outweighed the bad.
You ask particularly plenty of rambling questions. You look missing in course, and the army (and might be even the Navy) perhaps a well alternative till you determine what the heck you wish to do. Ensure you're taking up the GI Bill (tuition cash once you depart the carrier). I certainly not did it and it was once the largest mistake of my younger existence within the Navy. I was once an 18 yr ancient bone head. Do no longer be so definite you do not wish to make a profession out of the carrier, in particular with your whole doubts approximately your self, and "making it" within the civilian global now or after the army for that topic. If you do not feel you'll make it now, then after the army, you'll be a lot bigger off besides. Get a few intestinal fortitude, will ya!! Yes, the natural enlistment is four years of lively responsibility. Total of eight years, however the the rest four-years is finished as "inactive reserve" time. Basically, you're performed with four years (or something you signal up for). I nonetheless would not disregard a profession although. I did, then two decades handed within the blink of an eye fixed. It was once particularly anything. Don't placed it down earlier than you already know what you're speakme approximately. If you serve lively responsibility and depart after your enlistment, strictly speakme, there may be not anything preventing you from dwelling foreign. Jobs. That's a complete different matter. What are you interested by? Anything technical or scientific is a well wager. Great that you're for your possess and no longer tied down. That's a well factor. Don't screw up and run off with the primary boy you meet, which might screw or no less than modify your plans for the longer term and economic reputation in maturity. I perhaps flawed, however it is a huge assertion on my facet. Best of good fortune.
I highly doubt the first responder is entering as an engineer. Thinking more an enlisted EM based on the course description. Electrical Engineers (as defined by the B.S. In engineering) are highly valuable to the Navy in engineering positions and rarely (if ever) enlist. The Navy also does not produce engineers on the enlisted side, though training may help later in engineering school. Though, he mentions a 14 week basic....boot is not 14 weeks and neither is OCS so I have no idea. Yes, once you get out they will pay all tuition. While in there are caps annually and limits to when they will let you take classes. How much you make annually depends on how fast you advance, how fast you advance depends on you. If you're so young and want pilot, have you looked into NROTC?
I'm joining the navy too, as an electrical engineer, they will pay you for 3 years of school and pay the tuition cost, they only require 4 years of service the first pay is $33k, by the final year (seven) its $80k There's also 14 weeks basic, 10 weeks environmental, and 5 weeks naval training
It will be the best thing you will ever do with your life. Cowards who are to afraid will tell you otherwise, but you will never regret it. I do not, even with the bad. I applaud you for considering.
