Greetings,I've been reading through posts on here with great interest because my son is interested in joining the Navy. He originally wanted to become a corpsman. However, due to several factors, among them: there would be a long waiting list, my wife's strong objection to his being attached to a Marine combat unit, the high score he recorded on the little "pre-Asvab" test they give in the recruiter's office, he's now looking at becoming a nuke.Anyway, that's why I'm here.As to the morale and attitude issue, please know that in my industry, semiconductor manufacturing, we still look very favorably upon resumes of former Navy nukes. Other than the almost certainty that they are quirky, we know their breadth of knowledge makes them good candidates to be equipment maintenance technicians in our fabs.
Quirky... I like that. Very polite.
whats the pay like :pCool, good luck to your son on his endeavours and the trials he will face if he goes nuke
Base pay for a fresh out with no experience in semiconductors would be in the neighborhood of $50K-$60K.Thanks for the good luck wishes.
Good luck to your son...Semper Fi to you...
Well a wise person once told me:Every generation has complained about the generation that came after them, yet we continue to survive
We as LPO's, LCPO's, DIVO's, PA's, etc...need to stop complaining about the level of knowledge todays newbie's have. The current system is not going to change. So, it is a leadership challenge that WE as leaders need to overcome. BTW...when I was a young nub MM3 back in 1990 I occasionally heard the "old timers" complaining about the level of knowledge of the nubs. I'll bet if you if you went into the way back machine and emerged in the 1970's you probably would have heard some crusty MM1 complaining about the level of knowledge of his nubs. Same thing over and over.
I am pretty sure this thread is dead?!?!? But, I better make sure ...
